Total transparency here, I am a complete personal development junkie! I am constantly reading, listening, or watching something that teaches me and inspires me to become the best possible version of myself in life and business.

I firmly believe that we as entrepreneurs need up-level our mindset just as much as we need to up-level our skillset. Our businesses can only grow as much as we do. 

So I want to give you a list of books that will help you grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur. I have divided them up into separate categories to make it easy for you to choose which one to start with. I truly hope you take the time to invest in yourself and read some of these amazing books to grow in your business.
