Being part of a Facebook group geared towards Women Entrepreneurs can offer much needed business information and support as well as plenty of opportunities to learn from and collaborate with others. One great tool for learning more about running a business is business books written by experts in their field.

I wanted to find out what other entrepreneurs were reading and recommending so I could share their favorite business books with you.

So I posted this question in my Facebook group, Women’s Entrepreneur Network:

What are your favorite business books?

We received a variety of book recommendations; here are just a few:.

Farha Syed: For the Interior Design Business – ‘Business Of Design’ by Kimberley Seldon

Juin Charnell:How to Win Friends and Influence People’ by Dale Carnegie

  • Tabby Dingler: I second this book! It’s an amazing book!
  • Barbara Nelson Wood: I agree. This book should be read by everyone. It’s the best book for a business person, but it’s the best book for life in general.

Jenna Mathis:You are a Badass’ by Jen Sincero

Lauren Capehart:NOLO The Women’s Small Business Start-Up Kit’ by Peri Pakroo, J.D.

Lauren Capehart:The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin’ (I doubt anyone would find it listed as a business book, but she’s self employed as a writer and there’s a LOT of useful stuff in this book.)

Gill Fountain:Networking for Dummies’ by Stefan Thomas – it’s on Amazon

Cindy Woo:Brains, Boob’s and Balls

Jaclynn Scribner: I’m loving ‘Profit First’ by Mike Michalowicz

Brandi Lynn Huston Chrispen: Idk how business related it is but ‘I Am That Girl’ is a great read!!

Kathy Miles Wheeler: Jack Canfield’s ‘The Success Principles’, Michael Gerber’s ‘The E-Myth

Kristyne Campbell Dahl:The Law of Connection’ by Michael Losier

Marissa Frumento:The Big Leap’ by Gay Hendricks and ‘The Prosperous Coach’ (I’m forgetting the authors name at the moment).

Amanda Krom: I just finished ‘Entreleadership’ by Dave Ramsey, and it was a great read!

MaryAnn Shank:Winnie the Pooh’. Yes, it is about Life, but once we’ve got Life conquered, we’ve also got Business conquered.

Brooke Nicole:Eat That Frog!

Anisey Fernandez: This book was a huge eye opener for me. Not exactly a “business book” but it’ll help ANY entrepreneur for sure. ‘Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind’ (The 99U Book Series)

Patti Stevens:The Slight Edge’ by Jeff Olsen and ‘Outrageous Openness’ by Tosha Silver.

Carrie White:What The Dog Saw and really anything Malcolm Gladwell has written. ‘The Tipping Point’ would probably fit the bill for this question better, but generally I like how he gets you thinking about things in a different way and offers really great insights into various topics including business, history, etc…

Tracey Scott: All books that have Jim Rohn attached to them..

I hope you’ve found one or more of these book suggestions helpful. Stay tuned for more!
