Business-y Books

My copy of The Boss of You  just came in from the library.  I’ve only read the first couple chapters, but so far its great.  Everything seems right up my alley.  I’ve been thinking a lot about my life and defining success and having goals etc etc.  Just trying to figure things out.  Right now my problem is focusing on one thing and going for it.  Actually, that’s usually my problem.  I guess I’m in the process of figuring out how all these different interests fit together.  Anyhow.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading.  

On the recommendation of RiffeRaff I read The Martha Rules.  

Its fun (and comforting) to read about how a mogul like Martha started out.  Not that I want to run a media empire, but obviously she has a lot of gems to pass along.  Incidentally, RiffeRaff’s blog Make It, all about her starting and running her craft business of screen-printed goods, is one of my favorite and constant reads.  Loads of information about starting your own business.  Gobs.  Plus her work is just lovely.  So go check it out if you haven’t.  

Has anyone read The Anti 9-to-5 Guide?  Its next on my list…

    Thanks so much for this nice mention. And I’m glad you picked up the Martha Rules. It’s a pretty easy read and I found alot of it to be common sense stuff but still great info and I have so much admiration for Martha’s biz.

    I will have to check out the Boss of You next.

    Lady, you deserve it!
    Yeah I’m glad I did too. I felt the same way about it– its good to be reminded of those simple, seemingly obvious, things.

    Oh yes! I’d love to know what you think!

    Lauren,
    I love it! I actually got it out from the library, but I’m ordering my own so I can have it around to refer to.
    Thanks so much for it!
