New Year, New Read: 5 Books To Start Off 2018!


If you're taking the time to read this blog post, it's safe to say you might enjoy reading in general. If you're a book worm like myself you probably ask yourself quite often, "what should I read next?". Well what better way to start off the new year then a new book and some inspiration to get those resolutions off to a great start!

I have compiled a list of the top 5 inspirational/self-help books that we're the highlights of 2017. Some of which literally gave me the tools and confidence to start this blog and The Working Millennial brand! With these recommendations, I'm hoping that you find the same value as I did. Direct links will be available for you to purchase them online via Amazon. You might as well treat yourself, you deserve it! (Think of it as professional development)

1. Side Hustle by Chris Guillebeau

This list isn't compiled in any specific order but this book is purposely listed as #1. Side Hustle is the book that gave me the push to start The Working Millennial. For any individual with great ideas seeking ways to make extra income or start a side business, this book will give you a step-by-step guide, inspiration and resources. If you're an aspiring entrepreneur or just thinking of ways to establish additional streams of income I highly recommend owning this book. Yes, not just read but to own this book. This not a one-time read but a resource for your personal toolkit.

2. You are a Bad Ass by Jen Sincero

A nice, quick and easy read that gives you a dosage of inspiration to get sh*t done! If you are a believer in the Laws of Attraction, this is definitely a refresher to the concept which is also written in a bold and youthful tone - great for millennials. Jen Sincero was able to share her personal experiences and provide tips and advice that can easily be applied to our personal lives. She addresses various aspects such as positive thinking, spirituality, money, gratitude, fear and procrastination. Saying that, if you've been looking for something to get you back on your toes this read is like a glass of iced tea and a scorching hot day.
