I like to read. That's an understatement, I like to read ALOT! It's currently two weeks into September, and these are the books I've finished so far. I love them all! I would highly recommend working your way through this list if your thinking about starting your own business, side hustle, or building a personal or business brand.
Received Influencer by Brittany Hennessy in my Sparkle Hustle Grow box this month. I'm glad I did because it wasn't one I would have picked on my own. Brittany is brilliant! Her writing is just chunk after chunk of goodness. Each chapter drops another pearl of information in your lap that will increase your ability to build your brand successfully on social media. The best part is she helps you avoid the mistakes you may be making if collaborating with big brands is on your goal list.
I somehow came upon Girl, Wash Your Face while searching new books in Amazon and I'm so glad I did. This is the first book I've read of hers and I loved every minute of it. Her honest and straightforward talk will reach out to the heart of any woman looking to reach for her goals.
A Shame-Free Plan For Embracing And Achieving Your Goals
Once you read Girl, Wash Your Face, you're going to want move right along and read Girl, Stop Apologizing. Rachel manages to avoid repeated content from her original book, while still providing enough of a personal touch to make you really stand up and get inspired to set out some new life goals.
funny stories, Pretty DIY Projects
Mr. Kate is Kate Albrecht's lifestyle brand, and A Hot Glue Gun Mess is an exciting combo of DIY craft book and memoir. Kate is irreverent in a joyful way. Each chapter is a candid short story from her life that can range from a memory of her friendship with Sarah Jessica Parker to a one-night stand with Tiger Woods. The DIY projects are an equally quirky mix of makeup and hair tips and jewelry and furniture projects. Although this book is not a typical success and entrepreneur book, it's both a funny and relaxing read and an inspiration to live honestly.
Unleashing the Entrepreneur
Daring & Disruptive was my least favorite out of the list, but only because she focuses more on the book publishing industry, which I'm not currently tied into. Her insights are thoughtful and her writing style is casual and a quick read. If you have a strong interest in product-related business, Lisa's book is going to be a must on your to-read list.
Transform The Way You Work
My new recent subscription box love is Julie Ball's Spark Hustle Grow Box. I have a video unboxing you can take a look at. The success she has at her subscription book box business inspired me to read her short book, The Happy Hustle. Although it's very short, it's worth the read and the inexpensive Amazon price tag.
Most of these can be found in your local library, and if not, I've linked the Amazon link under each book. If you have read any of these, comment below, what did you like or dislike about them?
