7 Business & Mindset Books That Have Changed My Business (and Life)

I’m always asked what books I recommend for business because I absolutely love reading these types of books (in fact, I usually have 3 or 4 on them on the go at once)! So on today’s show, I want to share 7 books I’ve read that have changed my business, and as a result, changed my life.

As you’ll hear, it was tough to narrow this list down to just 7 books, and I do mention a few extras near the end of the episode. These books aren’t just business books though, as I also include books on mindset that have been a great influence on me.

I’ll be telling you a bit about what each of these books are about, as well as giving my two cents on why I found so much value in it.

In addition to giving you this list of recommendations, I’ll be sending one lucky winner a copy of each of these 7 books! To enter, you’ll need to subscribe to this podcast and take a screenshot showing you have subscribed. Second, you need to leave an honest rating and review of The Art of Paid Traffic on iTunes, and also take a screenshot confirming you have done that. Next, direct message me on Instagram (@rickmulready) those two screenshots and I’ll pick a winner at random. Good luck and I hope you enjoy these books as much as I have!
