Entrepreneurs have been recommending books for me to read to help my startup succeed. The first was “The E-Myth Revisited” and the second is “The Lean Startup.” Both offer interesting bits. Personally, I find “The Lean Startup” more relevant to my business.
The interesting part is how the books conflict. E-Myth says to have a very in-depth business plan down to the minutest detail — document everything and every process. “The Lean Startup” basically says have a one-page business plan draft, but feel free to revise it often.
To avoid information overload I think I will limit myself to two entrepreneurship books per month.
The easiest way I’ve found to avoid doing entrepreneurial work is to read entrepreneurship books!
