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‘‡


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.


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.


Elon Musk's Journey

โ˜‘๏ธ Story of 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.


Enjoy the read, enjoy the journey.
