Resources

I love learning and I love teaching people what I learn.  I thought it would be useful to create a page where you can come to to find out information for yourself on your bookkeeping/small business needs.  I will update this page as I learn more things, so please keep coming back to it.

Please note: some of the links on this page may earn affiliate income.  You can read my full disclosure here.

Learning

Recommended Books

I love reading, I learn so much from reading.  I want to share with you what books I recommend to read, so click on My Recommended Books page and have a look through.

If you are like me and don’t have time to actually read books you can also do what I do and listen to them through Audible.  I love using Audible and would love for you to Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks.

Some books that I highly recommend you read and need a special mention are:
Think and Grow Rich: Original Version (1937 Edition) You Were Born Rich: Now You Can Discover and Develop Those Riches The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It

My Mentors

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

I love this quote and it is quite true, but this doesn’t mean that you have to dump all your friends and find new ones 🙂 I have chosen to interpret this quote to mean that I needed to get 5 mentors to help me grow and develop my businesses.  Following are some that I chose.

Dan Miller

I have been listening to, reading and learning from Dan Miller for quite a few years now.  Dan is a Career Coach who helps employed/unemployed/self employed people. If you want to read to his blog, you can find it here or listen to his podcast here.  He has also written a few books that I would highly recommend you read.

Wisdom Meets Passion

Andrew Carnegie/Napoleon Hill

Andrew Carnegie was born into poverty in Scotland in 1835. His family moved to the U.S. in 1848 with barely a dollar to their name. By 1901, Andrew Carnegie was the richest man in the world.

He became an Industrialist who made his fortune in the American Steel Industry.

From 1901 to the time of his death in 1919 he was a Philanthropist and had gave away 90% of his fortune – $380 Million ($4.76 Billion in 2015).

In 1908 he started working with Napoleon Hill to document all of the strategies that made him a legendary business man and philanthropist.

When Napoleon Hill began his career writing about success, Andrew Carnegie gave him his “10 Rules of Success” that provided a foundation for much of his work.

I love reading anything what Napoleon Hill has written, but in particular his book ‘Think and Grow Rich’. I have also read Andrew Carnegie’s Biography by David Nasaw, simply titled ‘Andrew Carnegie’.

Both Napoleon Hill and Andrew Carnegie are inspirational and I encourage you all to spend some time reading their books.

Michael Hyatt

Michael Hyatt is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World it is also a Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon bestseller.

He helps high achievers acquire the leadership skills necessary to win at work, succeed in life, and reach their potential.

I love listening to Michaels Podcast and reading his Blogs.  They really help me grow and develop as a business owner and leader.

Pat Flynn – Smart Passive Income

Pat Flynn makes his living on the internet.  He is one of my main recourses when I am needing to know things for Ask the Bookkeeper.  From what to include in a website to how affiliate links work, Pat has all the answers.  He has a blog and a Podcast that I read and listen to every week.

He also has a mini podcast called Ask Pat where he answers peoples questions.  This podcast is 5 days a week and I make sure I listen to them all 🙂

Pat also runs a Facebook group called The Smart Passive Income Community that I am a member of.  It is so good to connect with like minded people, be able to ask questions and have them answered and also to read other peoples questions and realise they have the same issues/problems as you do and you solve them together.

John Lee Dumas – Entrepreneur on Fire
