Don't Worry, Make Money

I read a lot of business related books. Some are better than others, but they all repeat the same information. This book by Richard Carlson takes a completely different approach. Dr. Carlson is a motivational speaker and small business owner. Even though his business is about motivating people, he still has to deal with the every day, mundane details a business requires. Gaining new clients, balancing the books, developing new ideas. Anyone in business can relate.

It is the daily worries about starting or running a business that Dr. Carlson tries to help with. This book is divided up into about 100 small mini-ideas. If you need a quick boost, you can read a quick one page idea about how to worry less and focus on the task at hand. Read two or three chapters in about five minutes and feel good for the rest of the day.

Because of the style of the book, I have yet to finish it. I am still only on Chapter 34 after a month. It is not the kind of book that you can sit and absorb in a short time. Instead, I will list this as one of my business must-have books (someday).

Book Rating: 5 Stars

Up next: Children of Men by P. D. James.
