Recommended Books to Read for Business


Recommended Books for Business Growth

In no particular order is a list of the business, marketing, self help and growth books I have read since 2009 that have played a role in my continuous growth.  While I might refer back to some more than others in my teachings and recommendations, even promoting some (and even earning commissions when someone uses my link to purchase as is the case in a few listed here).

Also included and will be added to over time as I continue to read are those I consider part of DTU, or Drive Time University.  The local library makes a great place to access free training in business growth and allow you to listen instead of reading and learn from another mode.  In some cases I have both read the book AND listened to the audio of the book.
