So far in my life only a few books have really hit home when it comes to business. So this will be a quick and easy post.
The 80/20 rule
This book is fantasic and to my opinion is the difference between a successful business and a failure. The concept is that rought 80% of your results come from 20% of actions. This is the universal law of inbalance, once you have accept and internallised what this means, have of the challange come from figuring out what the 20% is and then increasing the amount you do.
80/20 rule can be used across the board, to any section of life love, business, fittness training, anything. Once you figure out the 20% simple by just doing that you should be able to increase your success by 5 times.
If you don’t have it yet get this book.
Now I have alove hate relationship with this book, the content is eye opening and can saving you from making a lot of mistakes, but I hate the way Micheal E Geber writes. It comes across like a love story, the words, passion / love is every other sentance. You get the impression he wrote this just to get into the girl he discusses pants.
But the content is great, brilliant really, anyone starting a business should read this.

When it comes to managing money this books is the best, it instills a concept of how have great relationship with money. Primarly it instill the concept of assests versus liabilites. To me the only thing that is left out is the point out the self help and education as one of the best forms of investment that you can make.
Apart from these I think the most benefit is got from reading specific to the sector business that you are in.
