Sobre los libros y los emprendedores

Algo que tienen en común todos los empresarios y emprendedores que conozco es que son ávidos lectores; Sin importar el momento en el que te topes con ellos, seguro comparten alguna o todas de estas características:

  • Están leyendo uno o más libros en ese momento.
  • Te pueden señalar el(los) libros que han marcado su vida.
  • Te pueden recomendar algún libro para tu situación en particular.

No intento que esta lista sea una de libros recomendados. La verdad es que dependiendo del momento en el que estés tú o tu empresa, los libros que te puedo recomendar varían; Más simple que eso: la idea atrás es simplemente enlistar los libros que he leído por si alguno te pudiera interesar.

Si buscas alguna recomendación en específico, no dudes en enviarme un mensaje y con gusto podemos platicar al respecto. Por lo pronto, comencemos:
