Must Read Books


Henry Ford

As I drive around in my Nissan Maxima (sorry Mr. Ford) I sometimes listen to Motivational content.  Other times it’s WFAN on the radio.

Henry Ford  had one of the best motivational phrases ever.  He said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

In other words, it all starts with you and your thoughts.  So if starting, or growing, a business of your own is the goal, then it takes a certain mindset to keep that ship on course.  These terrific books will certainly help:


Rich Dad Poor Dad – by Robert Kiyosaki

Reality Check – by Guy Kawasaki

Gung Ho – by Ken Blanchard

Raving Fans – by Sheldon M. Bowles and Ken Blanchard

Delivering Happiness – by Tony Hsieh – CEO of, Inc.

Radical Leap – by Steve Farber


Google them.

 All well worth a few hours of reading while sitting in those big green comfy chairs at Barnes & Noble.
