12 Books Every Female Founder/Entrepreneur/CEO Should Read

 

Dearest Reader,

We believe books are incredible agents of change because they show us what is possible, not just to accept what is.

We only have one life, and yet we can live a thousand through the experiences of others who have walked the same path we’re traveling, perhaps in different shoes. In books, we find the mentors, friends, and business partners that are necessary to our success as entrepreneurs.


Sometimes you meet these people in real life too. One such entrepreneur I’ve been inspired by recently is my friend, Suzanne Vetillart. Suzanne is the CEO of Boma Jewelry, a Seattle-based, family-owned company that sells ethically made jewelry and advocates for the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profits. 

 Suzanne and I often get asked what we’re reading, so we’ve curated a special list of recommendations from books that have helped us on our own journeys, ones that have piqued our curiosities, as well as upcoming new releases that...
