An important part of being an entrepreneur is increasing your intellectual knowledge; That is why before starting any project you must learn and understand the vision of those who at some point in their life started under the same conditions as you.
These visions and experiences will allow you to know more about the environment in which you intend to enter, in addition to that, they will help you to clear up some clouds on which is the real project which will adapt to your needs and above all to your economic situation and social realities.
A large part of this journey or this experience is precisely written in various books which will allow you to deepen your knowledge on the subject, and above all they will encourage you to continue on your way; the path to your new project and your future.
For this reason, I would like to recommend some of the books that are essential for any entrepreneur.

This book should be part of your personal library. It contains some of the rules that you should follow and observe in any place, call it work, business, politics, family etc. It has a really nice wording and that will help you understand some of the more common mistakes that can cost us dearly. work, clients and even friendship or love.

In this great book are the experiences of the author Robert kiyosaki , who started his project from scratch and possibly under conditions much inferior to yours. This book addresses the issues of vocational education, ie how children are educated to become employees; family customs with regard to professions, especially when the family influences the choice of a university degree or a profession, which sometimes generates a feeling of failure; the current and future situation of entrepreneurs and especially him because you have to become one of them.

It is a fascinating book in each of its chapters which are a mix between the author’s stories and the testimonies of the protagonists.
Each of its chapters allows us to reflect on our current situation and how to deal with the problems that plague us and which are often only barriers in our minds.
His author Rhonda Byrne is a speaker, writer and producer. She became famous for her book The Secret which, like a hero, strives to awaken in the individual a consciousness which allows him to generate what she calls the law of attraction. This law is characterized by the change of attitude of the individual vis-à-vis life, work and his social circle, taking as a premise “if you have it in mind, you have it in hand “.

Motivation is a fundamental part of the entrepreneur, and it is perhaps one of the most necessary elements to start any project; For this reason, it is necessary that at the beginning or during the project you find yourself in a continuous motivation in order to be able to carry out your business or activity. Now, you may be going through a complicated situation derived from a bad project or failure.
