With so many books out there how do you decide which to read? In this post, I will share the title of 3 books that I highly recommend because the time spent reading will be rewarded with cash in your pocket. These books will help make you more money by giving you more time to steer your business and by revealing opportunities to increase your profits. Of course reading a book without acting on what you learn is a waste of time. So if you want to maximize your profit, are willing to read with an open mind and then take action, you will be greatly rewarded.
The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey – Ken Blanchard, William Oncken Jr. and Hal Burroughs
In this sequel to the famous book, The One Minute Manager, you will learn how to delegate better, identify what you should be doing and what you should be getting others to do for you. It will take more time for UPS to deliver this book than it will take you to read it and the time spent reading it will be rewarded hundreds of times over if you act on a fraction of what it will share with you.
Unlimited Wealth – Paul Zane Pilzer
When published in 1991 this book drew criticism for some of Pilzer’s assertions. These assertions turned out to be spot on and more. Learn about the concept of “Ready to be implemented Technology” (RIT), which are gaps between existing technology and technology that is currently used. It can help you leverage existing technology gaps and at the same time help reduce your products and services distribution costs.
7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey
This book is a true classic that should be read and reread. Even if you read nothing else, the “Important vs. Urgent Matrix” will change how you look at how you prioritize your daily activities. As a business owner perhaps one of the most important habits is: “Begin With an End in Mind: Start with a clear destination to understand where you are now, where you’re going and what you value most.”
