Thursday Thirteen - 13 Books to Inspire the Home Business Owner
Books to inspire, books to inform, books to help you work with people, books simply to enjoy…many of these you’ll find helpful as a home business owner, as well as simply a soujourner on our planet. Not all of these books will appeal to everyone. However, you may want to check some of these out and see if they will help you in life and your home business.
Author/motivational speaker, Charlie Jones says, (to paraphrase) that your life will be determined by the books you read and the people you meet.
