A Selection of Business Books that have Helped Me

One part of my life is about adventure. Another part of my life is about creating stories. And another is about building an online audience, and using this to pay the bills. These books have been massively useful for helping me turn my love for adventure and stories into a viable career.

If you run a blog or a small business, then I recommend all of these.
