No matter what stage you’re at in the entrepreneur journey, whether you just launched your first startup or have started several successful businesses, you can always use the advice of people who have “been there, done that.’’ What better way to get advice than from the pages of a book?
Late in December of 2016, Bill Gates released a list of his favourite books for 2016. If a man who makes hundreds of dollars every second, is able to create time to engage in such “mundane” things as reading a book a week, how much more we mere mortals and aspiring billionaires?
In his words, reading is Bill Gate’s “favourite way to learn about a new topic”. As (budding) entrepreneurs attempting to manoeuvre the fast-paced computer age, we are constantly faced with the need to learn new things, and to learn them fast. This is especially true for 2017, where everything already seems to be moving faster than last year.
I believe books are the fastest way to learn new things. Every entrepreneur – aspiring, upcoming or established – should make 2017 a year for books.
That being said, the guys at Entrepreneur.com curated a pretty awesome list of essential books for every entrepreneur’s library. You might want to crosscheck for any books you are yet to add to your library. You can find the list here.
