As an entrepreneur or business owner, it’s important that you continually invest in yourself and your education. It doesn’t matter if it’s a $10,000 business course or a $20 paperback, it’s important you keep on absorbing as much information as possible to ensure your own personal growth and the growth of your business or investments.
So I thought I’d share with you a shortlist of books I highly recommend reading, particularly for those of you who might be new to business and the entrepreneurial world but also for anyone serious about changing their life financially in any way at all.
The reason I’ve chosen these books is, in particular, because they explain the importance of passive income in easy to understand terms, and how investing money the right way can build real wealth over time. I believe many people don’t fully understand the true power a passive income and the ability it has to change your life forever!
Many years ago I was stuck in an industry and a job I didn’t like and began to resent it. I was working long hours every day and really not enjoying what I was doing anymore (you can check out my bio page here for more on that story). What’s more, I didn’t know what to do next or where to turn. So books were my first stepping stones.
These are some of the books (the first one in particular) that got me started on my journey of discovery and thinking about money in a completely new way. It helped me understand how most of us think about money and why most of us are constantly broke and struggling. Also, why we need to change our patterns and mindset around money if we ever want to build real wealth for ourselves and true financial freedom!
You’ve probably seen or heard about these books before (most have been around for a while now) but if you haven’t read them yet, I can’t recommend them more highly. If you have read them before I recommend reading them again, particularly if you’re about to start or do something new.
If you only read one book though, then make it the first one on this list, it’s the best book to start with anyway. My first 3 recommendations are by Robert Kiyosaki. What I like about his books is that they’re very easy to read and understand, which is perfect for anyone (like myself) who didn’t have a very strong financial upbringing and needs it spelled out in a simple but comprehensive way. You’ll be wanting more by the end!
The Shortlist: Enjoy!
- Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money – That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! R. Kiyosaki
- Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom. Robert Kiyosaki
- Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest In That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! Robert Kiyosaki
- The Richest Man in Babylon, by George Clason
- The Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind – Think Rich to Get Rich, by T.Harv Eker
- Start With Why, by Simon Sinek
These few books are just a starting point. Where you go from there will depend upon the vehicle you wish to use to achieve your financial goals. You will need a different set of skills and knowledge base depending on the approach you take for your personal wealth building. Your skillset for building wealth through property will be very different from the skills you’ll need to set up a passive income business online, for instance.
There are literally thousands of books these days that will give you all the information you need, not to mention the many different courses and seminar options you have to invest in your financial future.
I wish some of these resources had been around when I first began exploring the various ways of investing and wealth building. I think it’s so much easier (and cheaper) these days to get the information you need that will set you up on the right path. I also think It’s much easier to start a business online these days and build a passive income that way, which is what I chose to do. These options weren’t available twenty odd years age, so take advantage of them wherever possible.
So, as well as all the traditional ways of building wealth, the internet now provides us with many more wonderful, powerful, and diverse opportunities!
In my opinion, one of the best ways to start building passive income online is with affiliate marketing. It’s incredibly powerful and can be started easily and with very little capital outlay (unlike many other traditional investments).
