Reading books is an effective way to learn and improve yourself. But if you’re an entrepreneur, you probably don’t have the time to hunt for that particular book that will take you to the next level. That’s why to help you out, we’ve put together this list of the books every entrepreneur should read in 2021 and what makes them so important.

How to Win Friends and Influence People

This classic by Dale Carnegie was written in 1937, but it’s still just as relevant today. It’s all about the art of conversation and getting better at it, and as an entrepreneur, you have to have multiple important conversations every day. This book is just what you need to get better at interacting with people, a skill every entrepreneur should excel at.

The Lean Startup

“The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses” by Eric Ries is all about how to turn your startup into a full-fledged business. It will help you take your assumptions about your business into hypotheses you can test and then tangible reality. If there’s a book on this list that is a must-read, it’s this one.

Start With Why

With this book, author Simon Sinek will help you inspire your people to take action. But more than that, it teaches you to encourage your customers to invest in your product and your brand instead of manipulating them into buying. Manipulation and inspiration are the two ways to get somebody to do something, the book surmises, and inspiration is more effective in the long term.

Awaken the Giant Within

Author Tony Robbins is a well-known motivational speaker and life coach. His famous book “Awaken the Giant Within” is a classic for business people and anybody who wants to succeed in life. It’s a deep examination into the philosophy of success and breaks down the five components of the “life puzzle.”

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Like what it says on the cover, this book by Stephen R. Covey will go over the seven habits that highly effective and successful people have. But it will also teach you how to make these habits part of your everyday life and is organized so that each new habit strengthens and builds off of the previous one.
