Business Books I Have Read

Since I started working on my business full-time, I have been determined to educate myself in some of the area where I’m ignorant. Part of that is reading books. Here’s my list of business books I’ve read so far, in no particular order. Some are good reads, some are drier and more technically focused, but all of them have at least 1-2 ideas that I can benefit from.
