Leaders are readers… But of the thousands of business management, home business, wealth building, and network marketing books on the planet… which ones can have the biggest impact-right now-on your home business?
Learning how to prospect and find leads, train team members, and build an explosive network marketing organization, are the biggest challenges to success you will ever face.
I know, because I’ve been there. I know how it feels to lie awake at night wondering… where can I find leads? And, what am I going to do when my warm market dries out?
We all face these challenges-and while a single book may not hold the answers to your problems, they can inspire you, help you to develop new marketing strategies, and motivate you to press on towards your goals-despite the challenges.
After ten years of working in the home business industry, I’ve found success in this business can be tagged to three common factors…
1. Having a burning desire to succeed
2. Having the courage to act on your dreams
3. And, having a tightly focused strategy to guide your efforts
Knowing that, I have categorized the top 10 network marketing books according to how they can best help you in each of those three areas.
Top 10 Network Marketing Books: Building Your Desire
Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki
While not strictly about network marketing, this book is important because it teaches you about how wealth is created-and how your network marketing business is a perfect way to create passive income.
Cashflow Quadrant, by Robert Kiyosaki
This book is like a sequel to the one above, but details how money is earned, and how owning your own business is the only sure way to create what Peter Drucker called, sustainable and profitable revenue growth.
Millionaire Fastlane, by MJ DeMarco
This book is becoming a cult classic among wealth builders. DeMarco cuts through the B.S. and lays it all on this book. If you are serious about building wealth in your network marketing business, read this book, get fired up, realize the potential of your opportunity, and take action.
The Parable of the Pipeline, by Burke Hedges
This is my favorite. It is an inspirational and informative read about how passive income is created-and how passive income is the only true route to time and financial freedom.
Top 10 Network Marketing Books: Finding the Courage
Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill
This is a classic, and generally makes every “success” reading list out there. Napoleon Hill had unfettered access to the inner sanctum of the richest men in the world back in the early 1900s. His observations about what drives people to achieve success are recorded in detail in this book.
Awaken the Giant Within, by Tony Robbins
You’ve probably heard of Tony Robbins… he’s a world famous motivational speaker and writer, and has changed thousands of lives by simply showing people how to believe in themselves, and how to build self-confidence.
The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferriss
Timothy rocked the world with this book, and demonstrates how he earns money from various automated business-working just a few hour per week.
Top 10 Network Marketing Books: Building a Strategy
Your First Year in Network Marketing, by Mark Yarnell
Mark is a master at network marketing, and walks you through the crucial steps to success in your first year in the business. Even if you’ve been around longer than a year, this is a great book to read and share with your team.
Go Pro, by Eric Worre
Eric is best known for his mountain of network marketing videos he has produced. But, he is also a raging success in network marketing, and shares his wisdom in this A-Z guide to marketing.
My final suggestion is not truly a book-it’s YouTube.
While you have to be careful not to get distracted, you can find tons of advice, marketing tips, and ideas on how to market your business.
