Reading usually provides us with an escape from our reality. After a long day of work, perhaps you’d like to slay a dragon, fall in love, or solve a crime. In fact, within a couple of hours, you can do all three.
However, these days reading has become less of an escape and helped us open our minds. Here’s a list of 3 books that will help shape the potential property investor in you.
Seth Godin is one of the most formidable marketing entrepreneurs and his insights – via his newsletters – have gained him a huge following. Purple Cow highlights that the secret to success – especially marketing strategies – is to be different. As a property entrepreneur, this golden (or purple) nugget could help you generate interest. If you want to stand out, you have to think outside the box.
In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell highlights the achievements of successful people and examines the ways they have achieved their successes. Spoilers: It’s not their high IQ but hard work and dedication to their craft. What most property investors assume is that you need to be book-smart to start your business. You don’t. Learning from experts and committing yourself will present you with so many opportunities.
When building your business, the people you surround yourself is just as important. This is what Dale Carnegie’s groundbreaking best-seller examines. The book contains important lessons, including: 6 ways to make people like you, and 9 ways to change people without arousing resentment.
And a bonus book:
You didn’t think we’d end this list without including the biggest best-seller. Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich has set out 13 principles of success – gained by the advice from the biggest entrepreneurs of our time (think Henry Ford and Dale Carnegie). It’s been read by many people and serves as the blueprint for our property investment seminars.
So instead of escaping through many fantasy realms, how about you grab any one of these books to get yourself motivated!
