Our CEO Bejay Mulenga has given us his top book recommendations for new founders to read when growing their business.

“I had a think about the things that would be most efficient for the topic of building a six-figure brand”

Here are his 4 top picks off the bookshelf!

1.📗Profit First by Mike Michalowicz

Mike Michalowicz’s guide to running your business focussing on keeping profit priority is top of Bejays list.

“One of the biggest teachings is having different pots for different parts of the business,” Bejay explains.

The book talks at one point about splitting your money into different accounts or pots for operational expenses like staff and freelancers, tax, your profit, and innovation. It’s a great book if you’re looking at how to better manage money in the business.

2. 📘 Simple Tips, Smart Ideas by Erica Wolfe-Murray

In the second spot is Erica Wolfe-Murray’s creation. The book teaches you how to find extra and alternative ways to produce revenue with the skills you already have. For entrepreneurs wanting to expand their existing roads to revenue.

“It breaks down very simple analogies around how to find more interesting ways to make revenue from to break down the skills that they already have,” says Bejay.

Focussed on growth and “new approaches to old problems”, founders should definitely give this a go.

3. 📕 E-Myth by Michael E. Gerber

E-Myth is the third book backed by Bejay.

“It’s a good book to enable you to expand your thinking about ways to bring a franchise mindset into your business, so if you weren’t there for a day, or two days or three weeks, the business would work without you,” he says.

If you are stuck in a rut with your future plan for your startup, this is a great pick for you.

4. 📙 The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan

The last book of Bejay’s choice is The One Thing.

“For me has been a really awesome book in enabling my mindset in understanding that these big goals that you set up as an entrepreneur can actually be brought down into targeting today, this week this month and break it into a year” says Bejay.

“This would be a really top book I would recommend,” he concludes.

Thank you Bejay for recommending such great reads! Entrepreneurs, if you haven’t set your eyes on these pages yet, get your bookmarks back out. 🔖
