The world's greatest entrepreneurs all have a common thread, they've made reading a daily habit. Books hold a wealth of knowledge and perspectives that build entrepreneurs to help better prepare them for the entrepreneurial world and greater success. Wondering what books would be a great gift? Here are some ideas below:
The Common Path to Uncommon Success
This book provides a clear outline of the steps entrepreneurs can take to claim financial freedom and uncommon success in today's society. The author, John Lee Dumas, has interviewed many entrepreneurs through his successful podcast 'entrepreneurs on fire'. Through this he has received a lot of knowledge from others in the process. This book ultimately outlines a roadmap for entrepreneurs to not only remain focused on their vision, but make it become a reality.
The author, James Clear, outlines successful and practical strategies to habit building and breaking. Success ultimately lies in ones daily habits, so ensuring that ones daily actions are setting them up for success will massively impact the outcomes in their life. Atomic Habits will help and inspire motivation for any entrepreneur on a daily basis and help them to become the person required for their business to thrive.
Building a StoryBrand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen
Donald Miller, the author, essentially provides a solution to the issues that many entrepreneurs face: the ability to articulate what they do and how they can help, in a way that connects with their audience. The methods outlined in this book use story points to teach entrepreneurs how to thrive with their messaging and simplify it in a way that others can understand it. Miller, also delves into the reasons behind why customers make certain decisions. This book is another gem for any entrepreneur or small business owner.
In order to cut down on costs of buying multiple books, you could also consider investing in a kindle for them. This way, they can read more for a lot less. Kindles also suggest books, which could further expand their reading world and introduce them to books they wouldn't have found otherwise.
Office items & tools
From one small business owner to another, getting new office supplies make the world of a difference especially when you're an entrepreneur. Here are some items that I recommend:
Small business owners and entrepreneurs can find their schedule getting very busy, so time management is key. Planners can help them to organize their schedule as well as ensuring that they don't miss out on any important dates or tasks. This will enable them to better organize their time and complete work in advance to avoid unnecessary burnout.
Convertible desks are great way for the entrepreneurs that work from home and often find themselves sat at their desk for the majority of the day. There are multiple health benefits but additional to this, they are also proven to help boost focus and creativity. Not to mention, it provides a great solution to increasing blood circulation while working but can never beat a walk or alternative forms of exercise.
The digital age is expanding and the popularity of video content is increasing. With that being said, having the right equipment when filming videos is essential, it's important that footage is clear, at a good angle and the right height. Therefore, investing in a tripod for an entrepreneur could be really handy.
Alongside the setup, the right lighting is essential to the quality of videos and pictures. Ones that are simple and easy to set up, while offering control settings are a great way to help enhance video quality without much hassle.
If that entrepreneur in your life is a visual person, a whiteboard could really make the difference in their workspace. It's the perfect place for them to run in their creative zone during brainstorming sessions, or even plan out their week and craft their to-do lists.
Additionally, coffee makers are an efficient way to get a quick and needed boost especially in the mornings. This gift idea would certainly not go unnoticed as a fresh cup of tea or coffee in the morning with little time wasted is definitely a treat. Not only does a cup of coffee or tea help boost productivity, it also boosts moods and creates better atmospheres.
We work hard and we also deserve the time to relax. Here are some perfect gift ideas that will help you and your clients relax and unwind after a long day:
Alongside day to day work it's important that small business owners and entrepreneurs give themselves time to relax and rejuvenate. Care packages are a great way to encourage and remind them to take time out for themselves. Fill them up with anything relaxing such as: bath bombs, candles, face masks, body scrubs, natural oils, whatever you can think of and tailor it to them.
Diffusers are a great way to relax an unwind the mind but can alternatively enhance blood circulation, therefore impacting focus and concentration depending on the oils used. They are a great way for entrepreneurs to soak up the health and skin benefits whether they are at work or away from the desk. Some popular oils to pair with a diffuser include:
Spa Day Passes
Another great way to treat that entrepreneur in your life, is to further relax them with a spa day. Maybe it's a solo trip just for them or you could grab a couple so they could go with family or friends (entrepreneurship can feel quite lonely at times so this would be appreciated).
Courses and softwares
Is there an area that they'd like to know more about. There are various places such as Udemy, Teachable and Skillshare that sell courses that can help to further broaden their skillsets. Alternatively investing in a software subscription that can help make their business life easier such as project management systems, accounting softwares and productivity tools can make all the difference.
