six the 4-hour workweek when to read when you feel like you need a fresh new start because your life is passing you by we love Tim Ferriss book especially because it has to do with how we built our own business model the book tackles the idea of location independence where you can travel the world make a lot of money and live your life to the fullest it's one of those rare books that comes once in awhile which dramatically redefines everything people have taught you becoming a millionaire was never easier than it is today and the 4-hour workweek is definitely a great stepping stone in the right direction a while back we also did a video on Tim Ferriss we'll link to that in the card on the top right number seven The Millionaire Fastlane when to read immediately after you read the 4-hour workweek this book by MJ DeMarco is less known than the rest but we wanted to include it because it actively dismisses all the popular books it goes hard and deep into every major book on this list and the arguments are strong it showcases his personal story and this might be the right strategy for those who think go big or go home we definitely recommend checking it out number eight the power of habit when to read when you feel like you're procrastinating all the time you know habits are what makes or breaks us right well Charles Duhigg book dives right into the science of how habits are created and how to alter them to your personal gain the stories that do hey guys knitted together are all fascinating in their own right but take on an added dimension when wedded to his extermination of habits if you are struggling with bad habits and looking to acquire better ones then this is the book for you number 9 Atlas Shrugged when to read when you're on holiday and need something to keep your mind too busy Oh people are gonna be so mad we put iron Rand in here but to be honest the people who are going to get mad don't read as much anyway so we don't care this is Mark Cuban's favorite book he says that in it you'll find everything you need to know about how to be successful in life Atlas Shrugged is not a business book it's a science fiction romance mystery novel it outlines iron rants groundbreaking philosophy on objectivism get the book you're either going to love it or hate it there's not really much wiggle room in there number 10 how to win friends and influence people when to read when you feel that you're never taking seriously by others and don't know how to build real relations with anybody this is another one of the classics Dale Carnegie's masterpiece breaks down the fundamentals of how humans work and what it takes to make them like you in it you'll learn how to handle people how to make them interested in you how to bring them over to your way of thinking how to change people without offending them and how to be happier at home it might sound like a lot but this is one of those books that will apply to everyday life until the day robots finally take over number 11 the $100 startup when to read when you want to start a business but you feel like you don't have enough money to do it would you look at that another book that you've probably never heard about or mentioned in our mainstream publications this has to do with the establishment whenever one of the guys previously mentioned on the list drops a new book they're all over it it just so happens that most of them missed this gem we wanted to include the $100 startup on this list because it was fundamental in our beginning the book looks at how you can establish a lucrative business without spending more than $100 there are so many businesses that have been quite successful without any serious seed money this book is filled with case studies and gets right to the point number 12 the monk who sold his Ferrari when to read when you feel that despite making a ton of money you're not happy now that you already have your investments and your companies running and profitable it's time to take a look at the later stages in business in this book Robin Sharma does a phenomenal job of translating why money doesn't bring happiness and what to do about it if you've already made it but you don't yet feel happy or at peace with your life this is the book for you if you're interested in learning more about Robin Sharma there's a video on our channel click on

instant classic Gerber walks you through the steps in the life of a business from entrepreneurial infancy to adolescent growing pains to the mature entrepreneurial perspective the guiding light of all businesses that succeed and shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business whether or not it's a franchise most importantly Gerber draws the vital distinction between working on your business and working in your business number 14 the 10x rule the only difference between success and failure when to read when your business is no longer growing Grant Cardone is an interesting figure we like his books because he usually cuts to the chase and there are no fancy words no secret strategies just pure American Muscle and by American Muscle we mean sales he's known for his ability to close down sales an ability which got him to where he is today the 10x rule is the type of book that will make a lot of sense but you might be reluctant to apply it because you're too lazy number 15 0 to 1 when to read when you're ready to disrupt an entire industry Peter teal is the founder of PayPal and Palantir if you haven't heard about one of those you definitely heard about the other he made billions in the new economy this is a short book so it's easy to go through it but don't underestimate it its contents hit the targets in all the right spots and will make you think of the world differently the book is based on a class he once taught at a master's program at Stanford University a class which we are proud to say we took it focuses on what the future holds what the current state of the start world is and what industries are to be disrupted next we know there are a ton of other books we could have mentioned so that's why we're going to do a part two for this video which
