Top 5 Books that Every New Entrepreneur Should Read

Leaders are readers. We’ve all heard that adage, “learn from the mistakes of others.” That is exactly what books are. Although it is much harder to be your own boss, and sometimes having a job to supplement your new business venture is required, we cannot deny that the benefits of being so are huge! The following are 5 carefully chosen books that any new business owner or prospective business owner should read!
