Want to start a business? Read these 3 books

Three mindset changing business biographies below.


I learned a lot more about entrepreneurship from the following books, than in top university modules. You heard that right. Have you read these? Comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡


ย 

Shoe Dog (aka story of Nike ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ)


โ˜‘๏ธ Follow Phil Knight's wild tale of co-founding Nike!

โ˜‘๏ธ A must read for inspiration and business insights.

โ˜‘๏ธ Highly accessible, surprising twists and reads like a story/novel.

โ˜‘๏ธ Key insight is recognising and listening to one's intuition.

โ˜‘๏ธ This book still sits on my desk - yes it's that good.



ย 

Richard Branson's Autobiography (aka story of Virgin ๐Ÿš‚ โœˆ๏ธโ˜Ž๏ธ)


โ˜‘๏ธ Ups and downs of building business success - I was glued to it!

โ˜‘๏ธ The sheer vision and entrepreneurial creativity is madness.

โ˜‘๏ธ The ability to switch a business strategy and expand across multiple industries was fascinating to see unravel.

โ˜‘๏ธ Also reads like a novel.

โ˜‘๏ธ Key insight for me was how to connect the dots of a business and also connect / manage people to create synergy.

ย 

Elon Musk's Journey


โ˜‘๏ธ Story of X.com ๐Ÿ’ณ , Solar City โ˜€๏ธ, SpaceX ๐Ÿš€, Tesla ๐Ÿš— in 1 book.

โ˜‘๏ธ Like detail? More technical in terms of looking at efficiencies in rocket creation or under the hood of a Tesla for example.

โ˜‘๏ธ Lessons learned across building the companies (enjoyed the deep dives about past SpaceX rocket launch fails).

โ˜‘๏ธ Key insight for me was how to break down seemingly large problems in to core solvable/actionable elements.

ย 

Enjoy the read, enjoy the journey.
