5 Books every online business entrepreneur should read
You are listening to the Success Club Podcast. Hello and welcome to session 132. This week I am talking to you about 5 Books every online business entrepreneur should read
I am a huge advocate of reading. As a teacher, I am either one side of the desk or the other, so, I am either learning or teaching, so today I talk about online business entrepreneur books to read.
I started my love of reading as a small child. I found a small second-hand book shop near my house, and I used to buy a book, read it, then take it back get paid a small sum that would help me buy my next book, that was until we had a mobile library that came right outside my house.
I still live near a library and I am constantly in there. But when I start going to college to become a teacher, we were given reading lists.
Book number one
People who focus on what they want to achieve prosper, while those that don’t struggle.
So if you want to get your life back in order this book is for you, both in your business and home life. It will inspire you to stop, pivot and make the changes your to focus on what needs to be done to help you get you from where you are, to where you need to be.
Book number two

You need to have your health as your number one goal, without having your health at the top of your priorities, you will struggle, if not fail in business. I learned the hard way after two major health issues.
For years I had issues with sleeping. Now I have it off pat, with various strategies that enable me to sleep from 9 pm to 5 am each day.
This book is the guide to sleeping better, feeling refreshed, and achieving a healthier, happier life, which in turn, helps your business not only to survive but to thrive too!
Everyone will need to experiment to get the best sleep for them. But I can guarantee, this book has helped me sleep better and wake up feeling great after a night of high-quality sleep.
Book Number three
After a good night’s sleep and you are back on being focused, the book looks at the deep, intense focus and concentration you need to do to accomplish the important things you need to do to succeed in your business.
It looks at spending time on high-quality work, for example, writing a book or creating a course, as opposed to just scrolling through social media, although there is a time for this. It is more about doing deep focus each day for a short amount of time, then focusing on other things, like getting to those tasks done that are demanding and needs to get done.
Following on from this book is…
Book Number four
If you feel really overwhelmed and do not know where to start, then this book is defiantly for you.
This book explains how to focus on the one that is done, makes everything else easier or unnecessary.
It helps you to get clear on your focus and to focus on that one thing. By doing so it will help you to get laser-focused on what you need to do next instead of looking at all the things you want to do and get nowhere! It will help you break up that big project and help you break it down to smaller manageable chunks of work.
Now you are focused, let’s talk about the next book…
