When you’re starting up your own business, it can often feel like you’re alone and in times like these your fountain of inspiration and motivation might be running dry. On days like those, it’s important to remember that, while you and your business are totally unique, you’re definitely not the only lady in this position. So, take a minute, sit down with a good book, and recharge.
#Girlboss – Sophia Amoruso
Detailing the story of Sophia Amoruso from directionless 20-something to CEO of a global fashion site, this book deserves all the attention it’s been getting recently. It offers Sophia’s witty, insightful perspective on being an unconventional woman in the world of business. There are anecdotes every female can relate to and ones that every female business owner can relate to too.
Lean In – Sheryl Sandberg
As Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and founder of the Lean In foundation, there’s really no-one better to take advice from than Sheryl Sandberg. It deals with the issues women face in their careers, both the barriers put up by society and the ones they create for themselves. There’s a wealth of valuable knowledge in this book, and it’s one that all women striving for success should read.
Leave Your Mark – Aliza Licht
Fashion industry veteran and the brains behind the successful rise of the @DKNY Twitter page, Aliza Licht’s book is a must read for all women wanting to give their career or their business a kickstart. Not only does she offer Devil Wears’ Prada style anecdotes about her time in the fashion world but there’s also a wealth of tips and advice for women in the pages of Leave Your Mark. It’s real, useful advice that you can’t afford to miss!
Girl Code – Cara Alwill Leyba
Girl Code is an empowering book that centres around the good that can happen when women join forces, sharing their knowledge and supporting each other in a way that’s never been seen before. Cara describes the book as a ‘roadmap’ for women who want to be successful entrepreneurs – as she states ‘it won’t teach you how to build a successful business but it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself’. It will also show you the power of connecting with other women, and eradicate that green-eyed monster.
