Womanpreneur Recommended Reading List!
I confess with two toddlers and a full-time job running my shop, I don’t have much time to read. But I have been reading a French book called La Grande Histoire du Monde by François Reynaert, which translates to The Grand History of the World. I love history, so it is very interesting to read such an epic overview of past events. As the saying goes “If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.”
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie. Hands down!
Any book on baking and cake artistry I can find!
I can’t choose! Becoming by Michelle Obama is my most recent favorite.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Go Love Yourself 🙂 I recently read & loved WorkParty by Jaclyn Johnson, founder of Create & Cultivate. It’s super helpful for any woman launching a business, brand, and/or product.
My favorite book is The Alchemist!
Good question. Not sure, but the last book I read was Tyler Henry’s book Between Two Worlds and was fascinated.
I can’t tell you the last time I actually read a book other than The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Good Night Moon. But when I can actually get to it, I love autobiographies and especially ones from strong, funny women who push boundaries.
I have soooooo many that have both inspired and moved me beyond belief, but I think for me the most amazing thing I’ve ever read was Daughter of Destiny– the autobiography of Benazir Bhutto. If there’s ever a woman that sacrificed everything for what she believed in, it’s her. She was the first female prime minister of Pakistan and the sacrifices she made for her country has her imprisoned, exiled, and eventually assassinated. She lost everything, including her family, fighting for what she believed in.
Tuesday’s With Morrie by Mitch Albom. It always reminds me of the time I fell in love with writing and my time volunteering at a nursing home. It taught me compassion.
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.
You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero (a favorite of mine as well!)
I have a million favorites! Right now I am reading Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. My all time favorite book is Secret Garden from when I was a kid. And the I Choose Joy journal by Danelle Delgado has changed my life
