The 22 books to read before you quit your job [Medium]

I wasn’t about to quit my job, join an MBA program, and then start a business. I didn’t have the time, patience, or money for that.

I needed to learn the basic principles of business, both running and growing one. I made a reading list for myself of all the business books I had heard about from people I admired or that had been recommended to me personally. I spent $237.91 on 22 books, a hefty investment for me at the time and got reading.
