The Books That Inspired Me to Quit My Job

I like this picture because the scene of this guy reading on the beach makes him look like someone who just quit his job. If he did, he would be reading one of these four books.

I quit my job nearly 18 months ago.  I tell the story of that exact day here.  As I look back, there were four books that inspired me to take action.

Book 1: Tony Dungy’s book The Mentor Leader

Book 2: Seth Godin’s Manifesto about Starting… Poke the Box 

Book 3: The Lean Startup by Eric Ries

Book 4: Walter Isaacson’s biography on Steve Jobs

I highly recommend these four books to all entrepreneurs.  Especially, first time entrepreneurs.
