This is why we have put together a list of books, courses and other resources that we feel will lead your down the right path towards your entrepreneurial glow up this month!

Book recommendations For Creative Entrepreneurs

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

“LAW 25
Re-Create Yourself

Do not accept the roles that society foists on you. Re-create yourself by forging a new identity, one that commands attention and never bores the audience. Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define if for you. Incorporate dramatic devices into your public gestures and actions – your power will be enhanced and your character will seem larger than life.”

“When you show yourself to the world and display your talents, you naturally stir all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity… you cannot spend your life worrying about the petty feelings of others”

Do What You Love: And Other Lies About Success and Happiness by Miya Tokumitsu

“As long as our well-being depends on income, and income, for most depends on work, love will always be secondary”

“Passion is all too often a cover for overwork cloaked in the rhetoric of self-fulfillment”

Courses We Think You Should Take

With the abundance of courses out there targeted towards creative entrepreneurs, it can be hard to tell which ones are actually worth it. With most of these classes being hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars, you may be hesitant to take any course. A few months ago, I came across CreativeLive and it has literally saved my business life. The classes are all professionally created and most are around the $99-$199 mark.

1. If you are hoping to enhance your photography and videography skills, here are a few classes that might work for you:
