3 best books for female entrepreneurs

I love listening to books as Audiobooks and there is so much good stuff out there for you to use as an inspiration. But not only, some are richly packed with strategies to build your life and business. So I thought to share these 3 best books with you and I believe that any female entrepreneur must read these books.

Girl Stop Apologizing by Rachel Holis. My Best Books choice #1

Rachel Holis is a woman I admire so much because she is authentic. Her book, “Girl stop apologizing” which came out in 2019 and became a bestseller, remains a must read for any female Entrepreneur who needs to kick herself in the butt to move. It’s more like a biography but goes beyond to draw from her personal life experiences, feelings, thoughts to create an inspiring guide for women.

Rachel is an American author and motivational speaker who was born into a christian family. However, her book is far from what you might fear to be fundamental preaching biographies. She is just authentically herself. With her whole family on the journey with her, Rachel shares her fears, her ups, her downs and how she consistently motivated herself to do the stuff she’d always wanted to do.

Despite being a mother of 4 kids, Rachel rocks through the hectic but finds the time to care for herself. She proudly participates in long runs and hosts a vibrant life conference in many US called the Rise conference. So if you feel like you need to keep apologizing for who you are, you feel like your life is passing you by and you might be worried about the judgement of others, then go “Girl stop apologizing”. It might be the fix you need to hear or read.

Start with Why by Simon Sinek. My Best Books choice #2

Simons Sinek’s book is an extraordinary piece of business strategy, especially for those who want to build a sustainable business based on the deeper meaning purpose.  He explores much of Apple’s philosophy and southwestern airlines as best practices approach. So you get to see how it works in practice. Yes, he also explores approaches that did not work. Simon Oliver Sinek is a British-born American author and motivational speaker.

I love the part that he debunks the whole marketing industry approach of manipulation. Simon actually really articulates the situation so well, that I felt like he listened to my million thoughts and then crafted out a romantic business essay about it. After reading the book, I felt like a veil fell off my mind’s eye. I actually embraced my deep motivation to launch Joadre. My business inspiration comes from the place of me seeing how  millions of Africans suffer everyday, some falling victims to exploitation and human trafficking in Europe, just because of financial poorverty. When still, they come from a continent with abundance. I want to help African Entrepreneurs build sustainable income streams so that they can live the life they desire. That is my “Why”.

He teaches about how to craft your “WHY” for your business. If you want to understand deeply how to craft this why, I highly recommend you read Simons Sinek’s book – Start with Why. Here is the link to get your original copy or audio version.

Everything is Figureoutable by Marie forleo. My Best Books choice #3

For a long time, I had followed Marie Forleo on YouTube. She is actually the woman that changed the way I saw social media, video making and impact. She showed me that you can combine the things you love to achieve the vision you have. That’s what you will experience in her book. Marie is a dancer, a fun rapper, a business comic, a bombshell of enthusiasm and a freaking style icon. As everyone of us experience, Marie had those same voices telling her that it is impossible out there.

In her early twenties, she ventured to want to be a life coach but those voices said, well you have barely lived a life to coach others. When is the experience coming from. But that didn’t hold Marie back for too long. She made the phrase “Everything is Figureoutable” her mantra. Marie shares her journey and leaves you with a tremendous amount of practical tools and strategies to apply to your daily journey of becoming a successful entrepreneur. With Maries new book, everything is indeed figureoutable.

3 takeaway from this blog.
  • You can live the life you love, but you have to be brave to take action without being apologetic.
  • Finding  a deeper why for your business is the key to success.
  • Everything is figureoutable, so just take it step by step.
