Angela’s Recommended Reading

I believe that as a business owner we should regularly reading about how others have set up their business or finding out marketing tips.  Reading is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.  Below I have picked out 10 books which you should find a great read with lots of helpful tips.  I have included links, some to Amazon and some to Bookshop online where I am an affiliate.
