Entrepreneurs and business people need all the help they can get. Most of the time, advice and tips come from family members and friends who really mean well but are not that knowledgeable when it comes to running an empire.
There is no such thing as perfect advice, but you can look for good guidance in books. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur or a successful one that needs guidance on how to operate or improve your business, tap into the brains of some of the most successful business people by going through their books.
First on the list would be "The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America." Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet was christened the "Sage of Omaha" for his great success in investing and building an empire. The essays within the book were carefully picked from Buffett's letters to his investors. Reading this book will help you harness the timeless wisdom of Buffett, and maybe, just maybe, it will help you emulate his investment success.
For those who are still in the planning process of building a business, Chris Guillebeau's "The $100 Startup" would be a good read. The book tells entrepreneurs that a huge capital base is not a requirement to be able to build a prosperous business. Jobs & Hire previously reported that those who are new to forming a business should love what they do.
Entrepreneurs and business people who cannot wait to get rich and become a millionaire should read MJ DeMarco's "The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime." The book tells readers how to stop depending on volatile markets to accumulate wealth. It also has some tips and tricks on how to improve your lifestyle.
