Fave takeaway quote

“There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.”

Leave Your Mark

One of my personal favorites, Leave Your Mark breaks down how to kill it on social media and create the brand of Y O U. Aliza Licht (you may know her as the former Twitter superstar behind @dknyprgirl) guides you through the step by step of how to build a brand accompanied by her personal experiences, some definite do-nots, and a whole lot of fun sass. No matter what industry your brand falls under, this brand bible is a must read.

Fave takeaway quote:

“If change doesn't hurt a little, it's not change. You have to go beyond where you're comfortable, or you're not progressing.”

Girl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur

This gem comes from master life coach and author of The Champagne Diet, Cara Alwill Leyba. Less of a roadmap to business success and more of a guiding light to overcoming the obstacles that are thrown your way on the path to success, Girl Code is sure to empower & encourage every female creative entrepreneur.

Fave takeaway quote:

“You must envision your world through the eyes of positivity and possibility. The moment you do that, you open up a world of endless abundance.”

The Desire Map

If goal-setting is your thing, you’ll fall in love with this book from inspirational speaker and entrepreneur Danielle LaPorte. The Desire Map is far from your typical goal-setting how-to book, however. Essentially it is a holistic approach to life planning that uses your core values + desires as the guidance system for your goal setting.

Fave takeaway quote:

“Be daring enough to tell us--your customers, your fans, your people--about your deep desires and ambitions, because we’ll be the ones to help you fulfill them.”

Daring & Disruptive

For all our boss babes out there that lean on the daring side, this one is for you. Some what of a game-changer, Daring & Disruptive is Collective Hub CEO Lisa Messenger’s personal account of her various business endeavours sprinkled with insightful tips and tricks to help you with your own business venture.

Fave takeaway quote:

“Every single one of us has the possibility to be extraordinary and really shake things up”.

Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content

This read will be your go-to for all things social media + content creation. When you are a creative boss babe running your own blog or business, creating exciting content to help attract your dreamies is a must.

Fave takeaway quote:

“What matters now isn't storytelling; what matters is telling a true story well.”
