I’ve really been into listening to audiobooks throughout 2017.
I play them before bed, when I’m walking to work, cleaning the house or even when I’m at the gym. Business and self-help books are my favourite reads. I like to learn something new or feel inspired after a book.
In today’s post I’m going to share 4 of the business audiobooks I’ve enjoyed throughout 2017. I’d read a few of these books before and because they’re all-time favourites I thought that having an audio version would be really useful.
I use Audible and pay for it monthly which allows me to download one new book each month. It’s one of my favourite subscriptions, I’ve been using it for a couple of years now. You can sign up and get one free book to test out the world of Audible. It’s then £7.99 a month if you want to continue with the subscription and given the price of buying audiobooks individually I think that’s amazing value. You can find out more on the Audible site.
4 Biz audiobooks to propel you to success in 2018:
She Means Business gave me a real kick of motivation. It combines business and self-development and before I’d finished the book I was making changes to my biz.
Carrie shares her own personal experiences throughout the book as well as practical tips to implement into your own life and business. It’s particularly good for bloggers and creative entrepreneurs. You can download the book here.
Shoe Dog is a memoir from the founder and CEO of Nike. It takes you through the very early days of his career and how Nike became a truly iconic brand. The book is filled with lots of details to really set the scene and makes it very personable. It includes the success, the setbacks and the hard work of an entrepreneurial life.
Download the book and learn all about the origins of Nike.
If you worry about having too many interests this book is a must read (or listen). We aren’t all set for one single path in life and that’s just fine.
How to Be Everything tells us about living life as a multipotentialite – a person with many interests and creative pursuits. It talks about building a business around all of your passions. A niche isn’t for everyone and we don’t all fit into one box. This book celebrates those of us with many interests. Grab a copy or download the audio version.
I’m a long-term fan of Gary Vaynerchuck and although I’ve read all of his books I knew I needed to download the audio version too. In my opinion, that’s the best way to enjoy Gary’s content. This book takes inspiration from his YouTube show where he answers questions from the audience and shares his wisdom on the current world of marketing and business.
I really enjoyed this book because Gary is always going off-script and giving up-to-date (at the time of recording) info. No matter how many times I listen to #AskGaryVee I find it fills with me with motivation and practical advice I can implement into my biz. I’ve listened to the audiobook multiple times (download it here) and always love diving into a random chapter when I’m running at the gym.
I can’t wait to download a few new books for 2018 and would love to hear about your favourite business books in the comment section below.
