1. The One Minute Entrepreneur
The secret to creating and sustaining a successful business by Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson and Ethan Willis. My favorite book on the subject. It contains practical tips on how to start a business. It also provides a link to a questionnaire which facilitates self-analysis.
2. Entrepreneur Revolution
How to develop your entrepreneurial mindset and start a business that works by Daniel Priestley. This is an inspiring guide to getting off the corporate treadmill and living a more rewarding life, and getting rich in the process.
David Stokes, Nicholas Wilson and Martha Mador present the theory and practice of enterprise for students, revealing its capabilities and limitations, and the processes and the skills. This title employs a 3-part structure: entrepreneurship as a process, the entrepreneur as a person, and how entrepreneurs create value to acknowledge that entrepreneurship unfolds in various contexts.
4. Entrepreneurship and Small Business
5. Disciplined Entrepreneurship
24 Steps to a Successful Startup by Bill Aulet. This book focuses on innovation, which means taking an invention and commercializing it. That invention can be an idea, a technology, or some intellectual property.
