My favourite business books for women
I've tried to put together a list that most women will love to read, but just in case you want to know my top books for business women, it's these 3:
- The Mindful Entrepreneur - Because I love the story and it shows you how to be successful in business through mindfulness.
- Boss Up - Because it's OK for you to be a stay at home mum, but it's also OK to want to do something more and set up your business. With lots of practical advice.
- Atomic Habits - Because you don't have to make big changes to get big results. Instead, make a small change and stick with it.
