Books for Boss Ladies: A List of Books to Read When You Need a Dose of Inspiration or a Kick in the Pants

A List of Business Books, crowdsourced from the Boss Lady Bash Community

Happy New Year!

One of my favorite things about being a part of the Boss Lady Community is that every woman in the group is committed to being a better business owner by learning, growing, and supporting other women in the group.

A few weeks ago, I asked what everyone's favorite business or life book was, expecting to get a few answers -- but no! We received over TWENTY book suggestions for go-getting business owners.

I've listed the books below (they're alphabetized by book name), and you can also download a copy if you drop your email address in the box at the bottom of this post.
