Recommended Books for Business

Jason Huval

I love to read. Mostly for self-help and educational purposes, but I do slip in the occasional classic work of fiction. Over the years, I’ve read more books that I didn’t find useful, but below are books that I definitely did find useful… these are my favorites. By the way, I’m on Audible now and I don’t judge. I listen at 1.5 times speed typically and can rewind easily if I miss anything! 

I would like to point out that my very first book that I feel had the most influence on my path in business was Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Just a great story and very inspirational. My favorite of all of these, which I believe is the shortest and easiest read is Chop Wood and Carry Water. This book embodies what I believe. Grind Baby!! Enjoy, and I hope you find inspiration as I have.

This is not an exhaustive list, and you should always be learning and growing. “I’ve met plenty of people who think they know everything, but have yet to meet someone who actually does.” – Jason Huval.
