#AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur's Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness - Gary Vaynerchuk

Your word is bond. Such a simple thing. My Grandparents knew it, believed it something happened to that value in my Mother's generation and has gone down since.

Raising an Entrepreneur: 10 Rules for Nurturing Risk Takers, Problem Solvers, and Change Makers
Raising an Entrepreneur: 10 Rules for Nu... Raising an Entrepreneur: 10 Rules for Nurturing Risk Takers, Problem Solvers, and Change Makers - Margot Machol Bisnow Good book! A copy should be given to every parent when their child is born. Very interesting; I wish I would have had this available to me when mine were little, maybe now I can incorporate some of what I didn't then with my grandchildren now.
The author interviewed a wide spectrum of entrepreneurs and parents/families to see if there were some kind of common threads or "rules" that these families had implemented while raising their children. Despite the families not knowing each other, coming from different racial, cultural, incomes (from poverty to wealthy) backgrounds, some parents having little education, others advanced degrees, and the entrepreneurs themselves, too, ranged widely in the education they had attained -- some common threads did emerge. Employing the "rules" would not insure your child will become an entrepreneur if that is not his/her bent, but even the highly successful entrepreneurs profiled in the book all agree that if these practices had not been evident in their homes growing up, they would not be where they are today. Certainly too, even if your child is not destined to be an entrepreneur, the environment created in the home by practicing these guidelines would only benefit the child anyway. Win/win situation.
I would have given this book 5 stars, but it was an ARC and had some typographical errors which I would assume have been corrected by now.
I received this book in a giveaway, and my thanks to the author and publisher for supplying it.

The Richest Man In Babylon
The Richest Man in Babylon - George S. Clason

Very frequently my dad gives me books, not the books that I want, the ones that he wants me to read.
This was one of them.


I found it on my cleaning day.

When my dad gave it to me I didn't find anything interesting so I just store it, like many others.But that day it looked like the most awesome treasure!

 

Suddenly I had in my hand some answers to one of my problems, money.
Specifically how to acquire and maintain it; explained in one of the best ways, with parables and stories!


Stories about Babylon!
Babylon for my has always been such a magical city.


So full of intrigue I start reading it, just to find the most simple rules or lessons in a clear and encouraging language.

With so much important information I can hardly say which is my favorite part...

 

I guess some books are destined to meet us just when we need them.

The Business Of The 21st Century
The Business of the 21st Century - Robert T. Kiyosaki

Somebody told me to read books that really teach me something, he did not want me to read fantasy book, which I replied was that all the books has something to teach us even if that is only grammar and orthography.


Truly some books teach us more than others...

and thats why I decided to start reading one book of this every month.


My curiosity took me to this awesome book, which I finished in two days, I couldn't put it down!
I'm in love in the way how Robert Kiyosaki writes about economy.

It is so clear, and makes me want to read more and know more about finances... a topic that I never thought to be interested.


He objectively critical the business of network marketing, but more than that, he offers a lot of good information; Its the perfect book for making a decision or better understand the "Business Of The 21st Century".

The Entrepreneur's Guide to Business Law
The Entrepreneur's Guide to Business Law - Constance E. Bagley,Craig E. Dauchy A must-read for anyone starting a business. This book contains a solid introduction to just about all the common legal and business issues you need to be aware of. Despite having worked at startups for years and having done a fair bit of research on my own, I was amazed by how much I still didn't know (and didn't know that I didn't know).

The book is comprehensive and works both as an introductory read and a reference manual. It manages to strike a good balance between being technically (and legally) accurate, but still fairly readable. It's not exactly exciting reading, but still far better than trying to work your way through actual legal documents. There are tons of real-world examples ("from the trenches") and a single hypothetical example that is developed throughout the book, both of which are very helpful in seeing how the laws work in practice. The only downside is that this book makes you realize how complex some of these laws are and that, despite reading this book, you'll still need to consult with a lawyer. But at least now you know what to ask.
