Last January, I took a (huge) leap of faith and added “work at home mom” to my personal bio. 🙂
Since I’m a homeschooling mom with five, young kids and a busy pastor’s wife, fitting an at-home job into my life hasn’t exactly been a cake walk.
Working from home takes a lot of motivation, a lot of discipline, and a truck load of organization.
Okay… to be honest, a lot of days I find myself under that truck instead of driving it. But, what was I saying?
Building and running a business from home has been both a tremendous blessing and a fun challenge for me.
In many ways, I feel like I’ve discovered a very satisfying personal niche. Nutrition, health, communication, leadership… who knew I would love doing this so much? 😀
One of the goals I’ve set for myself, both in my personal life and as an aspiring mompreneur, is to spend time reading every single day.
Some days I read a lot.
Other days, I might have time to squeeze in just a few pages.
Over the years, I’ve become a firm believer in the importance of personal growth, and the power of Biblical, inspirational messages to change and shape our lives.
With a brand new year upon us, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite books on the topics of personal growth, leadership, and finances.
There are just five books on this list, so I hope you’ll feel like this is a doable goal for you to tackle in the New Year!
If you’re a fellow entrepreneurial mom, I think you’ll find these books especially helpful as you plan and organize your busy life.
(For a full list of my favorite reads, check out this post.)
I buy most of my books from Amazon.com, but a local library is a great place to check for these titles too.
