The greatest Book ever written is also the most important Book you will ever read. This is an absolute MUST if you are going to do life and business God's way.  If you truly want to hear from the LORD, reading the Bible daily is not an option.

Gap and the Gain.jpg

"The GAP and the GAIN" by: Sullivan & Hardy 

This book was recommended by another business coach and I now recommend it as well. So many times we look at how far we still have to go, instead of looking at how far we've come. This book helps you to restructure how to view your accomplishments and goals.

"She Means Business" by: Carrie Green

This is the 1st business book I read and I highlighted and underlined A LOT! Even though Ms. Green does not write from a Christian perspective, many of the things she says can be applied to the Holy Spirit's guidance and provision. I still recommend this book for all female entrepreneurs.
