I have been on holiday for a couple of weeks and whilst I was away sunning myself and trying to stop my little boy from diving in the deep end of the hotel pool, I read a couple of books which I would like to share with you in case you were looking for something to read.

The first book I read was Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaksi. This book is an easy to read life story about somebody who grew up with a real dad who is a teacher (poor dad – although not that poor) and his other rich dad who is the father of his best friend and a serial entrepreneur.

Robert takes you through the life lessons his rich dad teaches him and explains how you need to go through life looking at things slightly differently.

One of the most interesting things I found in this book – is having a can do attitude with everything and not being afraid to take risks. Robert’s opinion of money and business is very refreshing and it made me feel that we should all take risks at some point in our lives. He continually refers to how our society tries to make us all great employees but not great employers.

I recommend this book if you fancy reading something which will give you a different take on business and money.

This is all part of my plan to continue developing my business skills by reading one book a week. I like books but I might take a leaf out of Dave Fleet’s (pardon the pun) book by listening to more audio books too as this will help save time.
