6 Books That Helped me Take my Web Design Business to 6-Figures

Why is it that so many successful business owners, entrepreneurs and CEO’s often talk about the books that made the biggest impacts on them? It’s because books are powerful. Very powerful.

They are an inside window to someone’s expertise, skills and life experience and can (and often do) drastically change our mindset in life and in this case, in business.

When I started my web design business, I didn’t read at all. I thought that was for high school or higher ed. I fumbled into my business with no mindset for running a successful business and caused myself endless hardships in the early days. It’s honestly a wonder that I made it through the first few years of freelance web design.

Then, things started to change for me when I started reading some business books. Suddenly, I felt empowered, learned at an exponential rate and had proven processes and strategies to implement in my sales, services, deliverables, etc. And best yet, these books actually made me enjoy reading for the first time in my life.

In this post, I’ll share with you some of the top books that had the biggest impact on me, particularly in regards to growing and scaling my web design business to 6-figures. Important to note as well is that the lessons I’ve learned in these books, many that I read early on in my journey, still resonate and make a big impact on me daily right now and as I’ve grown my brand here at joshhall.co to multiple 6-figures.

Important note: While there are endless books on business, sales, work-life balance, etc (many of which I can’t wait to read myself), these are just the handful that made the biggest impact on me πŸ™‚ I hope they will encourage and empower you as well!
