6 Must Read Books Every Aspiring Entrepreneur Should Read

Want to become an Entrepreneur?

Well, it’s so easy! All you need is an idea, a bit of discipline, and some BOOKS.

And those who fail to notice the importance of Books are, trust me, shooting themselves in the foot.

See, everybody needs a mentor in their life and everyone would love to have Elon Musk, Richard Branson by their side to guide them but is it actually possible?

We can’t have them, but what we can have is their life insights and how they did what they did, right?


There are a zillion books out there focusing on Entrepreneurship but the challenge is to find one that will reverberate with you and stimulate you to aim higher, in the right direction.

So, these are some of the books that I think every aspiring Entrepreneur should Read:
