4 Books That Will MAKE You To Start Your Business Today


Deciding you want to start your own business is of course the first thing you do, but establishing an action to that idea of yours should be preparing for the possible. These four books are ones I researched on "Starting your own business", I went through hundreds of recommendations on Goodreads, and Pinterest until I found these. Not only will each one inspire and motivate you to start that business idea of your's, but these books make it so easy to understand and lay out in a step by step system you will have NO EXCUSE not to put that idea to work.  

Creative, INC.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business - This book is a must for creatives like me who is a Freelance Makeup Artist. It walks you through picking out a name, legalities, and how to negotiate. Since I'm only on page 44, which is the chapter on "How To Make It Official" is the steps to obtaining a business licence, and where to go next. I also love how the authors have profiles of real creatives who give their advice on what to do and what not to do during their careers in the business. 

She Means Business: Turn Your Ideas into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur - I literally just got this book 2 days ago, I found Carrie Greens advertisement on Facebook and it immediately intrigued me. I read her blog, Facebook posts and pre-ordered her book and to be honest I am so happy I did. This girl knew what she was doing and totally speaks to my blogger side. This book is of course geared towards female entrepreneurs but has valuable information for all genders looking to start a business. 

The Girl's Guide to Starting Your Own Business: Candid Advice, Frank Talk, and True Stories for the Successful Entrepreneur - This again is for the female entrepreneur but has useful advice for everyone. The point of this book is to mentor and inspire starting up business in todays economy, and the book was actually revised in light of the recent economic changes. It's a great book to read because it forces you to ask yourself questions that no-one else will, and make sure you are confident in your decisions.

Business Plans Made Easy: It's Not As Hard As You Think!  - Now this was a book I found years ago laying around my family cottage, and I sort of kept it with me. Which is funny because at the time I found it I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life,  I'm pretty sure it was when I first went to college for Fashion Studies or something like that. I guess I kind of always knew the I was meant to be an Entrepreneur. This is similar to those "Guides for Dummy's" books, you know those fool proof step by step ones? which are pretty standard and a good book to have in your arsenal.  

Dont Forget Your Own Book! 
By book I mean a scrapbook or inspiration/mood board. Its your first steps to branding your business and its a collection of everything you love about the business your creating. I created mine by going to Walmart and buying a pack of sheet protectors, three ring binder and any inspirational paper to put in it (mine were tares from my favourite magazines).
