When I first moved over to the Big Apple, I was in the middle of my Professional Certificate. Coming home to wait essays and prep for exams on the challenges I had faced all day was tiring.
Now 2 years later, my love of reading around my marketing and business is back.
This September I am reading the following selection of great books. Topics ranging from management, entrepreneurialship, marketing, networking, growth hacking…
So in no particular order, here are my September reads…
How to win friends & influence people – The only book you need to lead you to success by Dale Carnegie
Written over 75 years ago, the lessons in this book are as relevant today as it was when Carnegie originally put pen to paper during the Great Depression.
Trust me – I’m Lying. Confessions of a Media Manipulator by Ryan Holiday
A look at how in today’s world of blog-led news, marketers have the power to control the message and manipulate the story.
The Power of Broke by Daymond John
An interesting read for anyone looking to open up their own business. Interestingly, as noted on the book’s back cover, 275 of Forbes 400 list were self-made entrepreneurs. Save to say – its time to believe in the power of broke.
The Hard Thing About Hard Things – Building a Business when there are no easy answers by Ben Horowitz
A New York Times best seller – an honest look at how hard it is to run a business.
Hacking Marketing by Scott Brinker
I am very excited by the ideas that growth hacking and data driven marketing have open the door to. Scott’s is a great book for those new and those old-hat at hacking marketing.
Looking forward to a month’s read. Will post my thoughts on each.
