Top Ten Business Books

Today’s Top Ten post is all about business books. I love a good self-develop, careers book. I find them informative and easy-to read, for the most part. Usually these are the books that spur me on to ask for a pay-rise, apply for a new job or find a second wind on a side-hustle.

These are my Top Ten Business Books.

The Multi-Hyphen Method by Emma Gannon

This business book is one of my favourite books of all time. It inspires me so much and I can relate to Emma’s advice and her stories greatly. Perfect for anyone looking to start a side hustle or wanting to branch out of their current career.

#StandOutOnline by Natasha Courtenay-Smith

If you’re a blogger, YouTuber, Influencer etc, then this is a great book to read. A lot of the data and advice is outdated now, due to the constant change in technology. But the lessons remain the same, which are very inspiring. Great for finding a second wind during burn out while blogging.

The Freelance Mum by Annie Ridout

I’m not a mother, obviously, but this book focuses on freelance journalism and as a freelance journalist I thought the advice very insightful. I listened to the audiobook, and really enjoyed the narration as well as the easy-to-understand way the advice is given. Great for writers and journalists.

Flex by Annie Auerbach

If you’ve got a side hustle, or are considering one, then this is a very insightful book to read. It will keep you focused and allow you to better understand how to reach your personal and business goals.

Heart and Hustle by Patricia Bright

Patricia is a YouTuber and while I never watched her videos before reading her book, she has written a very useful book for anyone in the influencer/early business space. She is a proper grafter, who works for what she gets and is grateful for everything that she achieves. It’s because of this book that I give the advice: first comes heart, then comes hustle. 

Brave, Not Perfect by Reshma Saujani

Reshma is the CEO of Girls Who Code, which encourages women to enter careers that are predominantly male such as technology, engineering and coding. This book is specifically tailored to talk to women who have self-doubt or sabotage themselves without realising it. Inspiring.

How to Not Always be Working by Marlee Grace

A practical advice book for people that are experiencing burnout or working too hard for little reward. The book focuses on careers, but there is a lot about self-care as well, which is really useful when working on a career.

It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work by Jason Fried

The title says it all really. If you need a reminder that life is too short to spend it all working then this is the book for you. Basically, how do you make the most out of a career and excel, without wasting your life at work.

Little Black Book by Otegha Uwagba

The must-read feminist business book. Easy-to-read books full of tips, that I would recommend keeping nearby when you’re at work, as there are anecdotes and explanations that are helpful for getting you to push through a bad day.

Sabotage by Emma Gannon

Originally a Pound Project book, Sabotage is a consciousness business book about how easy it is to self-sabotage when we become uncomfortable or enter into a difficult situation at work. The small book was so powerful that Emma is now writing a full version for Hodder. And I can’t wait to read it!
