12 Books to Read for the SLPreneur

I have made quite a few lofty goals for myself in 2019.  A book a month is just one of my goals this year.  Actually, I am shooting for two books a month.  But I did not want to get too crazy because I know life will happen.  Most are business books because I want to continue to grow my practice as well as my TpT store and blog.  If you are a SLPreneur, this is the post for you!  Each one of these books I’ve seen recommended time and again on other blogs or Instagram profiles.  At the end of each month, I plan to write a review on how the information in the book helped me as an SLP.  Hopefully, you’ll stick around with me and find you a FABULOUS book that changes your world!  Ok, that might be little too dramatic but you know what I am saying.  Not quite sure what an “SLPreneur” is?  Simple!  It is an SLP who owns a business, whether it be a private practice, TpT store, blog, podcast, YouTube channel-WHATEVER!  That makes you an SLPreneur.  Welcome to the club!  (Sorry, we don’t have cool jackets or anything!)

To start January, I’m finishing a book called “The Sweet Spot: How to Accomplish More by Doing Less.”  Have you ever read a book and wished the author was sitting right next to you so you just give them a big ol’ hug?!  That’s me with just about every chapter in this book!  I am over halfway through the book, and there has been (not joking) a BAZILLION TIMES I’ve said “Oh MY GOSH!  You are so right, Christine!!”  Because at this point, the author and I are on a first name basis in my head.  She talks a lot about habits and ways to form good ones.  The author also has an entire part dedicated to overwhelmness!  That’s a word, spell check!  And can I get an “AMEN” on feeling so overwhelmed you have no clue where to start or what to do except cry?  So if you are looking for a great book to get you started in the new year, check this one fo’ sho’!!

There it is!  My list of “What I am Reading” for 2019.  I still have a couple of “fun” reads that aren’t on the list like “The Good Neighbor.”  My goal is to at least read this list by the end of 2019.  A few of these are already on my shelf at home and most were already in my Amazon wishlist.  I listened to Christy Wright’s podcast before the holidays and really enjoyed it!  Definitely a recommendation from me.  I listened to Donald Miller and Jen Sincero as guests on other podcasts.  Don’t worry!  I am working on a list of my favorite podcasts to listen to for the SLPreneur.  If you are reading along with me, I would love for you to take me on Instagram!  Maybe we could start our own little SLPreneur book club!

From one SLPreneur to another, crush those goals in 2019!!
