Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
My No.1 favorite book of all time is 'Think and Grow Rich' which my father gave me at the age of 14 years old. I believe great books should be able to outlive their author and continue to inspire others.

My No.2 book is 'The E-myth Revisited' by Michael Gerber this book taught me that I could be a successful female entrepreneur and still put my young family first on my terms. Recommended by a young entrepreneur 20 years ago who went on to become a multimillionaire in the boom and expansion of'mobile phones'.

No.3 Dame Anita Roddick's 'Business as Unusual' a book by the most influential British female entrepreneur of the last century with principle and ethics at the core of her passion and thinking .

No.4 The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale- my mantra in life.

No.5 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki the book everyone of our children should read.
