New year, new attitude. Whether you’re a current girl boss or a future one, we all can use a little professional motivation here and there. These are the books that got me through the roller coaster ride of entrepreneurship– ie., the most stressful, expansive, uncomfortably thrilling time of my life building a business and personal brand. Despite the long hours I spent building my business, managing multiple clients, and juggling endless tasks until I learned how to efficiently delegate, I always carved time for the learning I knew was crucial to my business. These reads– and no, they’re not all written by women, you feminist skeptics— kept me motivated, positive, and eager for more opportunities. These books all quenched my thirst and dire need to learn more skill, knowledge, structure, and support.
