3. One Thousand Ways to Make $1,000 by F. C. Minaker

Yet another favorite from Warren Buffet’s childhood library was One Thousand Ways to Make $1,000. The book was originally published in 1936, so some of these ideas may seem a bit outdated. However, this book still gives you a lot of amazing ideas on how you can make money doing practically anything, as long as you set your mind to it. The book is currently out of print, so if you want a physical copy, it’s expensive. However, if you get Kindle Unlimited, the e-book is available for free.

2. Jack: Straight From the Gut by Jack Welch

Jack Welch was the CEO of General Electric who helped build the company’s market cap to an impressive $450 billion. Instead of trying to change himself to fit the business work, Jack Welch brought his personality and unique perspective to his projects. Jack: Straight From the Gut is essentially an autobiography on how he started making just $10,000 a year to becoming a billionaire. It should inspire anyone who is trying to move forward in their career stay true to themselves, no matter what the circumstances. This is also a great book for anyone who is currently a manager or running a company, because his advice is so straight-forward, it almost seems like common sense, but it just may lead to a lightbulb moment.
