As entrepreneurs, we look for inspiration, advice, and instruction everywhere. We find that we can learn and adapt something from every business we encounter. Given that our business, In Good Company, was a first-of-its-kind community, learning center, and co-working space, we knew we had a lot to learn. In addition to our peers, key industry magazines, and increasingly, social media, books have been important teachers. A good book challenges your thinking and encourages you to try something new or do things differently. Here are a handful of the books that inspired, improved, and influenced our business, our growth, and our own book, "The Big Enough Company: Creating a Business that Works for You."
