Do You Ask Yourself what Books Should I Read?
I suggest you start with GIRLBOSS books to motivate you.
With my mind on business and my heart with my family, I am always looking for what books I should read to get me focused and motivated since my goal is to create a home-based business.

Most of these books I have read, but a few are on my to-do list from my friend’s suggestions.
