What’s on your summer reading list?

 

Now that the July 15th deadline is behind us, hopefully you have a bit more discretionary time to read the latest releases on finances. Now, I don't need to tell you why to read books, but I will anyways: because you want to work smarter. You want to set yourself apart and you want to find forward-thinking ways of adding high value to your clients so that you can start working less and earning more.

In my reading, I learned that double-entry accounting dates from 14th-century Italy. Who knew. And that’s really cool, but here’s the thing - your clients don’t give a hoot about double-entry accounting. What they care about is how you can help them grow their earnings while protecting more of what they make. 

And YOU learning more about double-entry accounting won’t help you get them there. But HERE are 5 books that will:

 

  1. Subscribed by Tien Tzuo

Read Subscribed if you want your mind expanded - it’s full of forward-thinking ways you need to be accounting for clients with subscription revenue. 

 

  1. Fix This Next by Mike Michalowicz

Read Fix This Next if you want to add value to your practice by helping your clients know what they need to fix next in their business. Plus, it provides a simple framework to apply again and again.

 

  1. How Finance Works by Mihir Desai

Read How Finance Works if you're wanting to get into more vCFO - type work, and if you need to bone up on finance terms and concepts.

 

  1. Million Dollar Consulting Proposals by Alan Weiss

Read Million Dollar Consulting Proposals if you want to get more yesses on high-value proposals. Creating great proposals is a key to a high-margin practice.

 

  1. The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss

Read The 4-Hour Workweek if you want to live a rich life while working less. 



If you enjoyed one of these books, please comment or shoot me an email! Happy summer reading outside the accountant box!
