Expanding My Mind


I'm am an avid reader and for the past year have been on a mission to read a book a week. I am almost there, 45+ this year alone. I am always interested in finding new books that I have not discovered and wanted to ask the community what great books are you currently reading or have read and found great information from? I will post a few of mines in the comments.

  • Here's my list of books. I have many more but here are a few that changed the way I thought in business and as a person in general. ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

    1) Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice - By: Dennis Kimbro & Napoleon Hill

    2) The Four Disciplines of Execution - By: Sean Covey & Chris McChesneyย 

    3) The Souls of Black Folks - By: W.E.B. Duboisย 

    4) The Alchemist - By: Paulo Coelho

    5) Mastering the Rockefeller Habits 2.0: Scaling Up - By: Verne Harnish

    6) How to Win Friends and Influence People - By: Dale Carnegieย 

    7) Built to Sell - By: John Warrillowย 

  • Ok so I've read (1). Which one would you reccomend to start with?ย 

    • Emelie Johnston if you want to go the personal development route, Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice has had the biggest impact on my life and thought process!

      From a business perspective: I would say Built to Sell... itโ€™s a simple read and even though Iโ€™m not looking to sell my business it thought me the process of fully fleshing out a service for clients in a consultative way and using that service or product as the anchor to scale my business. Building out a product, not product(s) is the first step to success for small businesses.

      As a kicker: if you are in to really understanding the early days after slavery for blacks and how double consciousness played a role in it and still does today. โ€œThe Souls of Black Folksโ€ is the way to go. I think every black person should read that book as most of it is still rings true today.

      I hope this helps!

      P.s. - which book on the list have you read?ย ย ย 

    • Ok so I've also read Think and Grow rich but none of the others.ย  I heard the Alchemist is a must.ย
