I loved listening to Jen Sincero’s audiobooks, You Are A Badass At Making Money. It helped me get into the right mindset to leave my agency 9-5 and start working for myself.

Last – not necessarily a business book, but has helped me in business with mindset is “Happy Pocket Full of Money” by David Cameron Gikandi. I pick it up and read chapters all the time.

Victoria (Champ Social) I love and always go back to Atomic Habits by James Clear. It’s great for life beyond just business but especially in a world like social media where consistency is king, it helps refocus on good habits that lead to big results over time.

My favorite books are “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek. I love how he encourages you to look for your why and blend it out into everything else you do.

I also love Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeirer Hansson (founders of 37signals/basecamp) and read this at the very beginning of my freelance career. It’s packed with short, inspirational chapters that help you hone in on what you really want and need to get started now.
