How To Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie

This product was recommended by Miguel Balsa from Miggimusic

I recommend this book because it is the best one I have found in this field. I have read it a few times and I will read it again soon; it provides information about how to boost interpersonal relationships and how to solve problems with other people. It is also fun to read because the author gives examples of everything he mentions and delivers the information through stories, which I find funnier to read than just plain text with information.

And if you’re searching for your soul’s purpose in life, this may just give you your answers. So, must read it.


How to Change the World By David Bornstein

This product was recommended by Shiv Gupta from Incrementors

For anyone starting off in the social entrepreneurship field, this book can serve as a good starting instruction. Here the author, Bornstein, presents numerous stories of people whose passions have led them to address varied social causes. The ideas suggested are different and my personal favorite was, “This country has to change” by Javed Abidi, India: Disability rights. Mr. Abidi represents the social stigma associated with disabled people living in India and the work he has undertaken to change this. The various stories on various subjects ensure that individuals will see “their” cause addressed in one form or another.


Mental Wellness for the Creative by Sierra Hillsman

This product was recommended by Sierra Hillsman from Legacy Speaks

Mental health has been a trending topic and area of focus for a lot of people this year. This book is perfect for those who are creative and are looking to improve in the areas of self-care, productivity, and self-care. Creativity isn’t cookie cutter and neither is your mental health journey. Mental Wellness for the Creative is a guided journal dedicated to the visionaries and innovators of the world. Creativity shows up in many forms – painting, fashion, architecture, culinary arts, photography, videography, literature, and so on. Here is a resource that focuses on three target areas: self-esteem, productivity, and self-care. It includes tips for mental and emotional health, goal-setting sheets, and guided prompts to increase insight through mindfulness.


The Alchemist, 25th Anniversary by Paulo Coelho

This product was recommended by Jack Choros from IronMonk Solutions

My favourite business book is actually not a business book at all. Its The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho It’s a story about a boy who travels across the Middle East after having a dream about buried treasure. He works as a shepherd and along the way he shepherds sheep and meets all kinds of characters who mentor him along the way. He gets to his final destination only to realize that the treasure was always within his reach in a figurative sense. The book is great for social entrepreneurs because it talks about reaching your destiny and learning from the journey rather than just the outcome. It’s a great short book for youth inspired to start their own businesses.
