In addition to my own book above, below is a list of recommended books I have personally read and found immensely helpful in my entrepreneurial journey. Some of the books offer specific information on franchising, while others offer more generalized advice in regard to entrepreneurship, starting a business or the more intangible requirements of success.
As you start your journey toward business ownership, consider your educational and inspirational resources carefully. I always prefer to emulate successful people, as they invariably have overcome obstacles (people that aren’t entrepreneurs might call these failures) and I learn a great deal from their experiences. Please enjoy some of my favorite reads, I hope you find them helpful.
