Give the Gift of Entrepreneurship

With the holiday period upon us, there’s probably still some people you’re scrambling around to get a gift for…

It’s normal! That’s why you’ll see all the stores rammed with people for the next week.

I won’t be there, though…

I have a simple rule for gift giving, and it’s super easy to shop for!

I give the gift of entrepreneurship, and you should too!

What better way to show someone you care for them by giving them the tools to enhance their lives…?

Here’s how I do it…

I always get a funny look when I tell people I gift my loved ones “entrepreneurship” during the holidays.

I’m not handing them a business or anything like that.

That would be complicated and quite frankly stressful for both parties.

What I do gift them are specific books that led me to the entrepreneurial life I now lead.

I feel great about gifting them tried and tested methods for breaking into the entrepreneurial life…

I’ll tell you: Freedom is much better than a pair of socks people wear once or twice before sitting in their drawer.

With that being said, here are the top 3 books I gift my loved ones during the holidays.

  1. The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris

This is a great starting point for anybody who’s trying to escape the rat-race one step at a time.

Tim Ferriss walks the walk as he walks you through the crucial steps for escaping the 9-5. This is the first “self-help” book I read, and I consistently refer back to it and try to re-read it once a year.

Tim Ferriss is also a big advocate of gifting books instead of useless items.

2. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

This is another book that relies on practical application.

Kiyosaki does a great job in making you look at money in a whole new light.

Every aspiring entrepreneur should read Rich Dad, Poor Dad as it’ll give them a big kick to jump in and get started with whatever business or real estate model they’re interested in.

3. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

This one is less practical entrepreneurial advice and is more about how to manage people and get business deals done.

The way you treat people has a massive effect on your business (even if you don’t have any employees).

This book brilliantly outlines how you should interact with people to get the best out of them and give the best of yourself.

These 3 books changed my outlook on life, and if you haven’t read them all, I highly recommend you do so.

But more importantly, they make the best gifts because they enhance the lives of whoever is reading them.

There are plenty of other books you can gift your loved ones if they already have these, but this is a great starting point.

Trust me, they’ll appreciate it more than you know!
