Books

As I read a lot of books, I regularly get asked for book recommendations from people, inside our team and out, so here are my top 15 business or personal development book recommendations. Everyone has had a significant impact on my approach to life, and I am sure they will for you too.

2. ‘The 5AM Club’, by Robin Sharma

If you have read all of these, and want more recommendations, feel free to email me at charlie@efficientportfolio.co.uk. I encourage you to devour all of these and more, and to get your team doing the same. As long as you take action with what you read, it will transform your business.  After all, ‘growth’ is one of our human needs, and if you are not growing you are drying. To put it another way, in the words of Ray Kroc, ‘When you are green you are growing, when you are ripe you rot!’
