My Top Business Books For Retailers, And a Chance For You to Win Them | Episode 98

Show Notes:

Even if you are not a reader, try the habit of reading for 15 minutes a day. It’s all it takes to open up your mind to new concepts and new things, new mentors and bigger ideas.

Here are some great business books that I love and their “highlight reel”:

  • The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan – easy-to-read and will help you decide what’s truly important.
  • Sell the Way You Buy by David Priemer – dives into how we are selling to our customers and how our brand story works with our customers.
  • Superfans by Pat Flynn – all about building a brand that your customers love. Build your fanbase!
  • Get Different by Mike Michalowicz – Learn how to stand out amongst the crowd. Mike also wrote Profit First.
  • The Self Employed Life by Jeffrey Shaw – Truly understand the mindset of self employment. You can also read his book Lingo or listen to his podcast!
  • I’ll Be Back by Shep Hyken – How to excel at customer experience. Also wrote Be Amazing or Go Home.
  • Atomic Habits by James Clear – I read this one a lot! Learn how to create small habits that will compound and progress.

WELCOME

Hi there! I'm Wendy Batten, and I'm obsessed with helping independent shop owners like you achieve success.

With over 20 years of experience as a small business owner, I've owned several retail businesses along the way including a cafe, two retail shops, and a studio (and even a tae kwon do studio), learning first-hand the art of juggling all the balls.

I now dedicate my time to coaching hundred of retailers all around the world, sharing my expertise to help them organize their businesses and maximize profits, paychecks, and JOY in their day-to-day lives.

I created the support, programs, and community that I wish I'd had.

Whether you've been in business for years or are just starting out with your brick-and-mortar venture, you've come to the right place.

If you're serious about your business and ready to stop winging it, I'm here to inspire and guide you toward success.

I'm so happy you're here, and I can't wait to support you on your journey to thriving in the world of retail!
