This week, our “business bibles” came in the mail. What is a business bible you ask? It can be any business book that you are going to use as your guide when starting your own venture.
Now, we realize there are tons of business books and all of them might offer some really great information that would be helpful to your business. We suggest picking the one that resonates most with you and making that your business bible.
For our business, we picked 3 books to be our business bibles. The first book is “Anything You Want” by Derek Sivers. The second, “This is Marketing” by Seth Godin. The third and final bible is “It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy to Work” by Jason Fried.
We picked these books because they share a lot of similarities. When it came to picking a north star to be guided by, these authors tend to be who we resonate most with.
Having a business bible or set of books that act as your baseline is very powerful tool to ensuring your business maintains what makes it special. Return to your business bibles often as you push your business forward. This provides a foundation you can always return to and re-read to put the ship back on course.
What are your favorite business books? Maybe it will be our next bible for our next business venture!
