Today, I want to recommend a few books to encourage you all to read more if you aren’t already. There are a lot of great books out there to help you grow as a person and in your business.
Now, I’m not a huge reader. In fact, I hated reading books in high school and in college, but these days, they have audible books that are easily accessible. I use Audible.com, and with a subscription, you receive one free book a month that you can download and listen to.
So today, I want to talk about a few books that I would recommend reading. Let’s get started!

4 Books to Help You Adopt the Entrepreneurial Mindset
This is not a real estate book, but it’s business-related, and it will change and rock your world!
It changes your perception on how you view rich people. To be frank, wealthy people don’t look like you think they look. They’re not the guys on MTV Cribs driving driving the brand new Mercedes with swimming pools in the living room.
The book is about real deal millionaires who drive used cars, live in modest homes, and exist frugally. That’s just how they live, but they made it and the books talks about how they did it.
It’s a great book!
This another book that absolutely changed my life—and one of the key themes is that multitasking doesn’t work.
Sometimes we have so many different things going on in our minds. We have what’s called the “shiny object syndrome.”
Especially as entrepreneurs, we often say things like, “If you’re an entrepreneur and you’re successful in real estate, you can be successful at anything,” and sometimes we get that shiny object syndrome, and we down all these different rabbit trails chasing after different things and the book is about narrowing your focus by doing one thing and doing it really well.
Check it out!
This is a great book that teaches you how to run a successful business from building teams and organizing your goals and your thoughts to putting a business together.
This book is great for anyone who currently has a startup and is looking to learn how to create systems and grow their business.
4. Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
Now, this is probably the one book everybody has heard of, but if you haven’t read it, go read it now!
It’s an amazing book on how build wealth through real estate investing.
Most importantly, the book is about more than real estate. It’s about the mindset. It’s about changing the mindset from thinking as an employee to thinking as an entrepreneur.
If you attended a public high school, face it: You’ve probably been programmed to be an employee. There’s a significant amount of history on the way modern schools were actually designed to look like factories back in the day, and the whole clocking in and clocking out idea was to model mass-producing factory workers during the industrial revolution.
So, we are bred in society to clock in, clock out, perform assignments, do what we’re told—and unless you were home schooled or raised by entrepreneurs, you were taught how to think like an employee.
Guys, this book will radically shift your way of thinking!
Well, there you have it! These are my most highly recommended books. Still, don’t forget that action is key. So, after reading these books, roll up your sleeves and get started!
