What I'm Reading: Melinda Emerson’s “Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months

Here’s a brief overview of one of the books I’m reading this week.

Currently, I’m reading Melinda Emerson’s “Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months: A Month-by-Month Guide to a Business that Works.  The best way I can describe this book is by sharing my review of it from Amazon.comI wish I had this book back when I had a regular job!  My life surely would have been easier and I could have avoided many of the entrepreneurial pitfalls that littered my path along my journey to business success!  What I love about this book is its ability to get you thinking about you and your business, and it provides the kind of "plain-language know-how" that cuts to the nitty gritty and helps you get things done.

On an annual basis, I probably read or skim roughly 50-60 books geared towards small business owners, or those who are thinking about starting one. Each one has advice on what you should and shouldn't do, and generally offers some generic prescription for how you should improve your entrepreneurial acumen.  "Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months" differs from these texts because Melinda Emerson not only tells you what you need to do, but also why it's important and why it should be included in your thought processes as you move forward with your business.

This book could have transformed my life had I gotten it when I first had the "entrepreneurial itch" years ago. I highly recommend it for anyone considering leaving their traditional job to be their own boss. I would also recommend it as a much-needed resource for existing entrepreneurs seeking to grow their enterprises.

If you ever happen to read this book, let me know what you think.  

Have a Blessed Day!
