Being an aspiring entrepreneur means having the start of a business but not being in it all the way yet.

It means the opposite; that you should keep going forward as much as you can and never give up. One way to do this is by reading these five books every aspiring entrepreneur should read in 2016.

  1. Purpose Economy by Aaron Hurst

This book is about what the writer calls the fourth economy. The fourth economy is important for every business person to be able to understand what is inside every great entrepreneur’s brain when it comes to starting and growing a business. If you are propelled by your work, you are a great business person and a great leader in what you do.

  1. Hustle: The Power to Charge your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum by Neil Patel

If you feel like an underdog in your business, you need to read Hustle. It will motivate you and inspire you to be a great business person and to fight the system that tries to stack the odds against you in one way or another. If you think working harder will eventually lead to fulfillment, you have it wrong. You need to work smarter, not harder and this book will help you understand that about running a business.

  1. Startupland by Mikkel Svane

Although you do need to have some great skills and maybe even a huge opportunity to make it really big as a founder of a majorly successful business, not everyone is given an opportunity when they start their business. This just means you can be successful in your business without having something handed to you for your business. This book talks about how you too, a regular person with a regular family, can start your business without having a huge opportunity handed down to you.

  1. The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz

Who says good things are easy to come by? This is what this book is about. Everyone knows, or should know by now, that nothing good is easy to come by. You must work for it and be and stay motivated to get what you want, when you want it. Although you must work for everything you want and need in life, once you start your business and look back at how hard it was to become successful, you will be proud of yourself because everyone should be deeply motivated to work for what they want to achieve in life.

  1. Lean Startup by Eric Reis

This might be one of the best books for every aspiring business person to read when starting their business. Although it can highly motivate you, be prepared to read about how technology acts as an important aspect in businesses today. However, that is really true since every successful business really can’t be too successful without some type of technology to turn to when something in the business needs to be done.
