Reading List for 2013

2013-reading.jpg

Being a creative entrepreneur means that I need to be on top of my game. I need to know everything there is to know about running a business, product production, shipping, billing, taxes, customer service, wholesale, blogging, marketing, product photography, trade shows, inventory.. This list could go on for a while and that's exactly why I am serious about my reading list. During the month of December I am working on planning 2013 and part of that was creating my reading list. I will be writing up a short book review on each of these as I finish them. And while I'm at it I will be doing book reviews on my reads from 2012. (Social accountability, right here folks.) The 2012 books were especially crucial in getting me where I'm at right now, from no plan, no business, no products to being a fully operational business producing and selling my heart out. The 2012 reading list can be viewed here. I'm looking forward to lots of time curled up under a blanket reading these books that I've heard so much goodness about.
