5 Inspiring books for women in business

In need of some inspiration? There are so many compelling books to consider, but if you want to read something interesting or different, it can be hard to know where to begin. We’re sharing five of our favorite books that every go-getter should definitely have on her shelves (talking shelves: take a look at these). They’re definitely worth a read!

Work Trips & Road Trips: a book for creative freelancers
by Monika Kanokova
WHAT: It’s Monika’s third (!) book on freelancing life she managed to get funded via Kickstarter. Her other two books (This Year Will Be Different & My Creative (Side) Business: A Guide for Freelancers) are absolute must-reads and this one sounds promising. You might expect this book is full stories on how to be a digital nomad or how to take regular vacations. But it’s not exactly that. This book is about success, mindfulness, purpose, money, and travel accompanied by real, honest and touching stories of 15 women who all work in the creative business, either from the road or take regular vacations.

Get you sh*t together
by Sarah Knight
WHAT: As you might have noticed, we’re big fans of Sarah Knight’s work. Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K was a total bestseller that made us think, analyze, grow and laugh. Now she’s back with a brand new book which is high on our wish lists and yes, it’s time to get our sh*t together. In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, ‘anti-guru’ Sarah Knight introduced the joys of mental decluttering. Get Your Sh*t Together takes you one step further – organizing the f*cks you want and need to give to help you quit your day job and move abroad, balance work and fun – and save money while you’re at it – or simply get out of the door for happy hour, every day.
