The Best Books For Women Entrepreneurs in 2017

The Best Books For Women Entrepreneurs In 2017

I am a book fanatic. I’ve never understood the appeal of Kindle because there really is nothing like the smell and feel of a new book in your hands. With that being said, I have become somewhat of a book hoarder. I have this lifelong dream of owning a huge library one day where I can sneak off to and write all day long. For this reason, I have been on a hunt to find the best books for women entrepreneurs so that I can fill my dream library with valuable content.

This year, I started a virtual book club to keep myself and my fellow women entrepreneurs on track.  I think it’s so important to read every day in order to get those creative juices flowing, no matter what field of work you are in. For those who have not joined our Facebook book club, I have compiled a list of awesome books for women entrepreneurs:

Generosity and Networking: My Day with the Art of Charm Guys

Generosity and Networking: My Day With The Art of Charm Guys

Up until July 27th, I thought I was a kickass networker. Because I can talk to a brick wall, I thought I had all the tools I needed to make connections and get ahead in business. Ummmmmmm, that’s a joke.

After my second trip to the CreativeLive studio in San Francisco, I was (once again) blown away by the amount of knowledge I was given. My networking game was WAY off and I had no idea. Jordan Harbinger, AJ Harbinger, and Johnny Dzubak were the teachers of our class, The Art of Networking. They are the masterminds behind the Art of Charm and have an amazing podcast that you should check out right this second.

Catching Criticism: The Life of a Creative

Catching Criticism: The Life Of A Creative

Last week, I ran into a friend that brought up my writing… in a negative way. We had fallen out of touch and when the subject came to up in conversation, she explained that she didn’t even know me anymore. She went on to claim that nothing I have been writing sounds like it came from me and that she has discussed it with my friends behind my back.

As you can imagine, I was a little speechless… I mean, I knew that there would be gossip floating around once I began this journey but hearing it from one of my “best friends” really cut me to the core.

What I Learned From Watching 13 Reasons Why

What I Learned From 13 Reasons Why

High school can be a real bitch. Even though there are hundreds of people around you, you’ve never felt so alone. Everything matters. The length of your skirt, what kind of shoes you’re wearing, how you walk, talk, and laugh. It’s insane. One wrong move and you’re as good as dead.

Watching 13 Reasons Why brought back some scary memories. Guys that were a year older than me telling me to kill myself on Facebook, crying in my Spanish teacher’s classroom before school, telling my therapist I couldn’t live like this anymore… I look back on my younger self and my heart sinks. What if I was pushed to the edge? What would’ve been the “last straw”?

  • After struggling with a case of writers block, I decided to look through my book shelf for inspiration.
.
I have wanted to write a book since before I can remember but I've always combatted self-deprecating thoughts.
.
Who would read this? .
What makes you qualified? .
Who do you think you are?
.
But we all have to start somewhere. .
Never compare someone else's chapter twenty to your chapter one. .
  • Here's a photoshoot for you to remember me by @stevenewilcox I'll miss ya bud!
  • Had a blast representing JCAP Financial Group at the Captivate Conference this week in Vegas. Such a great group of people!
  • WE OUT HERE
  • Today has been the Friday from hell.
.
My computer died and my charger broke right before an assignment was due. .
I've been scrambling to get ready for a conference in Vegas next week.
.
Delia ate my MF lunch again. .
And I had 4 Old Fashioned's last night at a friend's fashion line launch party. So I'm not feeling too hot. .
I went on a walk to try and prevent punching someone in the face and something hit me...
.
Why the hell am I so stressed out when our world is this beautiful?
.
Stop and smell the flowers, my friends. ❤️
