2021's Must-Reads for Entrepreneurs

2020 has been a tough year for so many people, and as we’re rounding the corner into 2021 I’ve been trying to think of ways to help hopeful entrepreneurs who need a little extra guidance. I know firsthand how busy the life of an entrepreneur is, and this makes trying to keep up with new trends and information that much harder. It’s absolutely crucial that you keep trying to expand your knowledge and skills, especially as they pertain to business, but navigating different resources and researching the best guides just takes up so much time.

That’s where I come in.

I spent time making things a little easier for you by compiling a list of the best books, podcasts, blogs, and Instagram accounts that I truly believe every entrepreneur should be reading, listening to, and following! Every single item on this list has inspired and educated me in some way this past year, and I hope you find the same value in them that I did.

Your time is limited enough as it is, don’t waste any more of it scrambling to find the best educational and inspirational tools to push you forward - I promise each item on this list is worth it!
