My Book Wishlist: Books on Success, Self-Help, and Business

So, I’m going to start off by saying that I haven’t read all of these but I’m working on it! These are books that I have researched on multiple occasions to find that these are highly requested. I’ve been to conferences where super successful people list off their most read books that helped them curate that success. Some might come from people I respect or have learned to love through social media and trust. So, here goes my list! Another tip: see if you can find these at a second hand book store! WAY CHEAPER and you can get a feel for what someone else thought was important throughout the book.

I think these are all of the books that I’m currently reading and loving OR am hoping to buy soon! Books can be so expensive but I’ve learned of some half price book stores and cheaper stores to buy nice books! So check those out before you spend $20 on a book! Another tip with books like these that can help you achieve more is by writing in them. Take notes, highlight, put in sticky notes.
