As I began packing my suitcase for summer vacation, I realized it was time to pick out my summer reading. This is usually a big decision for me, as I am sure it is for many of you. too. So I thought I would share a few great books (or magazines) to take along on vacations…to help your business.
Here are a few recommendations:
- Marketing to Women: How to Understand, Reach and Increase Your Share of the World's Largest Market Segment by Marti Barletta
- How to Run Your Business Like a Girl: Successful Strategies from Entrepreneurial Women Who Made it Happen by Cogswell Baskin
- Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler. One woman entrepreneur swears the book saved her partnership.
The Naked Truth: A Working Women's Manifesto on Business and What Really Matters by Margaret A. Hefernan
- Real You Incorporated: 8 Essentials for Women Entrepreneurs by Kaira Sturdivant Rouda (that's me)
If reading magazines is more your style, try:
And of course, my summer favorite, Gift from the Sea, by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. It always gives me inspiration.
