My Top Books for Professional Development

Share This Post

Every night, I enjoy spending my time reading books on how to better myself both personally and professionally. I wanted to share a list of some of my favorite titles!

#1 Good to Great by Jim Collins

I love Good to Great! This book helped me transform into a better freelancer by exposing me to level 5 leadership and helped me genuinely develop a culture of discipline within my business.

#2 Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley 

Next Generation leader is all about the characteristics of future leaders.

  • Courage
  • Clarity
  • Competence
  • Coachability
  • Character

This is a great read that truly inspired me to become a better leader by improving in these areas!

#3 EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey

Dave Ramsey is an incredible author, and his no-nonsense common sense thoughts in EntreLeadership were not always the easiest things to hear, but they indeed helped me develop into a better leader!

#4 MONEY Master the Game by Tony Robbins

MONEY Master the Game illustrates the seven steps needed to unlock financial freedom. I include this book because financial freedom allows me to make decisions in my business that may not be possible with poor financial planning. This book is a must-read for young entrepreneurs like myself!

#5 Insanely Simple by Ken Segall

My last pick is a book called Insanely Simple by Ken Segall. This book is all about the culture of simplicity that drives Apple, and their success! The book talks about how humans are drawn towards simplicity, yet we quickly and easily slip into creating things that are complex.

I love the concept of minimalism and simplicity, and that’s why I’m attracted to HighPoint Town Square. Instead of having to drive 15 minutes to a FedEx, I can simply mail all of my packages from the Friendship Centre. Or even the concept of the Work/Liv space allows me to truly live a minimalist lifestyle and cut out all the clutter that keeps us from getting things done and attracting more business!

What do you think? Are there any books you think I should add to the list?
