If you know me, you probably know I love reading books of every genre. My dream someday is to have my own little library in my home. Books are this little world you can travel to that you can take anywhere with you. I find comfort in reading books especially when I am going through a rough patch in life or even just drinking my cup of jumping juice (coffee). It is so easy to forget about your problems when you pick up a really good book. Some books fill you with emotions and some make you want to take the world with your bare hands and own it.
More recently, I have had a fascination with reading books that are motivational and powerful towards aspiring businesswoman. I find it so helpful to read books written by others that have the career you dream of. People who you look at and have you motivated to be the best you can be. I am a Business student so naturally I love reading books written by some of my Businesswoman inspirations. They inspire me to work so hard to reach my goals and that is exactly what a well written book should make anyone do! I have picked out three of my favourite books I recommend for anyone who is an aspiring Boss Lady! I promise you they will have you feeling good and ready to take on any challenge your career will throw at you.

This book really motivates you to take control of your career and your life. It has reminded me that I have full control of the direction I head in life.
