With a new year upon us, there is no better time than the present to start actually abiding by that New Year's resolution to start reading more. If you are an entrepreneur, chances are you may feel like you simply don't have time to read for fun, but it is very important that you do what you can to start reading more. Reading is a great way to expand your mind, learn new things and read about skills that can translate into a more successful business. Here's a free guide to the stock market that I created.

Even if you only have time to read four books this year (that is just one book every three months), these are the four books that you need to be reading. These are four of the best books that every entrepreneur, in virtually every field, needs to read in 2016.

If you want to start understanding some of the new emerging technology in today's market, and most importantly how this emerging technology can benefit your business. This book is written by established billionaire Peter Diamonds, who knows a thing or two about utilizing technology to advance your business. Most importantly, this ultra-successful business owner takes this information and insight, breaks it down and explains it in an efficient manner that even the least tech-savvy people can understand. If you want to start introducing new technology into your business in the new year, this is your key to getting started.

If you want to learn how to build your business, build your brand and build your bank account, there is no better place to turn for advice than a self-made billionaire. No matter how low on the totem pole you are starting, this book can help you get that boost you need to start building your company and make the type of money you have always wanted to make. The great thing about this book is that Thief is all about teaching and all about sharing his knowledge. He breaks things down in an ultra-effective manner. He makes things simple and doesn't waste time getting to the point, making this a book that is chock-full of information you can actually use.

For many entrepreneurs, all they really need is that extra boost of inspiration in order to get things done. This is where Makers come in. This is single-handedly one of the best inspirational books out there and it is centered on self-made individuals who want to really inspire themselves to do something great. This book is literally inspiration 101 and if it doesn't get a fire going underneath you, then no other book will.

If there is one thing I will tell anyone who wants to make a lot of money, is that just focusing on the dollar amount will never get you to your goals. You need to dream about being successful enough to make the type of money you want. If it is all about the money and all about the dollars and cents, you aren't being authentic in your pursuits. This book is all about dreaming big and working to make the world better instead of just focusing on the money. If you adopt an attitude like the one depicted in this book, the money will come, you just have to put yourself in the right mindset first.
