BUSINESS AND BLOGGING BOOKS
-The Girls Guide to Starting Your Own Business
This book is about two women who have started a business together. While they have since gone off on their own, they wrote a book about their experiences.
The women interview other women in business and give you a great insight into the world of entrepreneurship. It even has workbook-like parts where they ask you questions and you can write your answers inside the book. Something I wasn’t expecting, but actually enjoyed.
A must for women starting their own business! Check out The Girls Guide to Starting your Own Business Here!

I just got this book recently and I’ve been loving it so far! It’s a book by Jen Sincero and it’s all about personal development, which is so important in business!
You may not think personal development is important when it comes to running a business, but when you think about it, it has a lot tt do with it! You are the boss and you run the business, so if everything isn’t right with who you are and your mindset, running a business is going to be very hard!
