Becky’s Favorites: Best Personal Development Books for Direct Sellers
In full disclosure, some of these are affiliate links, which means that if you make a purchase, I’ll earn a commission at no additional expense to you. I recommend these books because they are useful and helpful in my business, not because of the small commissions I earn if you decide to buy.
As a direct seller, network marketer, home-based business, small business owner or entrepreneur, you’re often also the head of the Training and Development in your business. Finding ways to carve out time for personal development can feel a little crazy when you’re juggling 352 other things to do. Sharpening your leadership skills and self-development is incredibly important to prioritize.
While I love taking courses, listening to podcasts, learning by networking with others, picking up a good personal development book is still one of my most favorite ways to grow. As a self-proclaimed training junkie, I gain so much inspiration and motivation by reading.
Since I get asked what my favorite books are (like A LOT), I’ve put together my personal list of the BEST personal development books!
