I keep getting this question over and over, “What books do you recommend for professional women?” Well, here you go! I LOVE reading career and entrepreneurship books and these are my absolute favorites! These are all must read books in my opinion.
First, I put together a little PDF of the books that you can download now and take with you to the bookstore or library!
What I love about the list below is that each book is a little different and they range from important topics such as finding a job you love, starting a business, networking, getting out of debt and organizing your life. It’s a little bit of everything! Let me know what you read and if you liked it!
