The 4-Hour Workweek

By Timothy Ferriss

This book introduced me to the idea that there is more than the typical 9-5 work-life. Although not all apects of the book are still relevant, it gave me the push I needed to quit my electrical job.

Show Your Work!

10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered

By Austin Kleon

This book provides advice on how to present yourself on social media in fun and easily digestible pieces. His top 10 steps have helped anchor my social media presence. Kleon's other book, Steal Like an Artist, is also a great read.

Do the Work

Overcome Resistance and Get Out of Your Own Way

By Steven Pressfield

Pressfield reminded me that our greatest enemy and roadblock is our own brain. For anyone starting their own business or starting out in a creative role, this book will help you get away from your greatest critic. 

04

The War of Art

Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles

By Steven Pressfield

This is another great book by Pressfield. I recommend this book for any creatives who find themselves facing resistance in their expression and work. Reading The War of Art gave me the push to follow my instincts through all my creative endeavours.

The Dip

By Seth Godin

This book is a great read for anyone who is currently at a crossroads on their entrepreneurial journey. Godin provides a great perspective on whether you should continue or whether you should pivot to a new project. It helped to refrain my thinking around failure.
