Must Read Business Books

My carefully selected list of must read business books for every small business owner!

I am an avid reader and love to get lost in a mystery or glean new tips from business books. Here is my continually growing list of Must Read Business Books! (This page does contain affiliate links. See my disclosures here.)


$100 Startup is probably one of my all time favorite business books. The author, Chris Guillebeau uses case studies to illustrate business essentials and highlight different ways of doing business. He focuses on businesses that cost very little to start up. I find myself referring to sections of this book on a regular basis.

Handmade Marketplace was one of the first books I read when my family and I decided to start a handmade jewelry business way back in 2009. As a newbie handmade seller I found this book super helpful as it walks you through all stages of business ownership as a handmade crafter. This is the 2nd edition which has been updated for current trends and changes in the online space over the past several years.
