Books you shouldn’t miss out on as an Entrepreneur
“Never trust anyone whose TV is bigger than their bookshelf” - Emilia Clarke
I couldn’t agree more with this phrase. Even though TV does not fully mean fun and enjoyment, it represents the idea of entertainment. Whereas a book is connected with the idea of knowledge.
An entrepreneur is not a boss but a leader. An entrepreneur is not someone who orders people to work for him but is a person who works with other people. An entrepreneur is not a person who succeeds alone but a person who makes everyone around him successful.
Becoming an entrepreneur is not easy. You simply do not become an entrepreneur by starting a business or working hard day and night. An entrepreneur is not someone who works hard and earns money but is a person who has the mindset of a winner.
Turning yourself into an entrepreneur is a gradual and a step by step process. No one is born with such a mindset but is molded slowly by the experiences they go through. If you are among those few people who are willing to take the risk and change your mindset into becoming an entrepreneur, here is a list of books that you should not miss out on.
Rich Dad Poor Dad
Rich Dad Poor Dad, written by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter in 1997, is based on the real-life story of Robert Kiyosaki. This book advocates the importance of financial independence, financial literacy, building wealth through investing in assets, and real estate.
This book shows the difference between the financial literacy between a rich dad and a poor dad. The rich dad is the father of Robert’s friend, and the poor dad is the father of Robert himself. The rich dad has accumulated his fortune through entrepreneurship and smart investing, whereas the poor dad, no matter how hard he has worked, he’s never obtained financial security in life.
