Girlboss Book List – Are You Ready to Rock Your Career!
“How To Be F*cking Awesome” by Dan Meredith shares 11 devastatingly powerful principles you can apply immediately to start getting more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
“Crushing It” by Gary Vaynerchuk teaches you how to use every social media platform to build your personal brand and make money. It’s full of inspiring stories from people who have followed Gary Vee’s principles and are now living their dream lives and you can too. A brilliant listen on audiobook as it’s read by the legend Gary Vee himself!
Tara Mohr’s “Playing Big” gets to the heart of what holds many of us women back and provides some great techniques and strategies to overcome those barriers.
“Lean In” by Sherryl Sandberg is a deep dive into the reasons behind the lack of women in leadership and teaches you how to “lean in” to get recognised and break through that glass ceiling!
“The Confidence Code” by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman offers practical advice to help women achieve the careers they want and deserve. The principles are based on cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, cognition, and behaviour.
“#GIRLBOSS” is a no-nonsense account of how to start a business from scratch and make it big. An inspiring and lively story of a woman who wins with ambition and handwork.
What I love about “Rework” is the punchiness of the concepts offered by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson about how to work smarter and be more productive. The concepts are often thought-provoking. Entrepreneurs and business owners will love this book as it dares you to tackle some of the textbook ways of running a business in a completely different way. If you read this, I guarantee that you will change some of the ways you work for the better. I particularly like the sections on culture, hiring the right people and the piece called “meetings are toxic”.
There are productivity tips galore in Tim Ferris’s “4-Hour Work Week”. Entrepreneurs will love this book for the tools and tips to help you make a living and a life. The design your life section will appeal to workers who can get some flex in their work week to create a space for doing what they love. Two entrepreneurs I admire are living the dream after reading this book.
“The Little Black Book” by Otegha Uwagba has some top tips for being productive in the workplace. Chapters on “Getting It Done”, “Knowing Your Worth” and “Looking After Number One” are beauties. Guess what?… It’s sized to fit in your handbag!
Dale Carnegie teaches you the are of networking in “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. The old ones are still the best!
