My name is Sumit and I am the founder of Trump Excel, an online platform that trains people in using Excel spreadsheets efficiently. I was in a fulltime job till 2015 but quit to work on my own online business.
One of my favorite books is ‘Rework’ by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. It shares tons of golden nuggets on what a business should and should not do to grow. It doesn’t dwell on a concept for pages, rather covers it in one or two pages. It’s a ready manual for startups and can even be used by established tech businesses. The book doesn’t talk about any ground-breaking concepts, but emphasizes on simple stuff and explains why it matters.
Undoubtedly a book that should be there is every entrepreneur’s shelf.

Without question, I have to recommend Rework by Jason Fried and David Hansson of Basecamp fame.
They were light years ahead of thinking of certain concepts (like working remotely, and not *having* to work 9-5 to get the best work in) and I have no doubt it will help future business owners start on the right track, rather than following ingrained (and often wrong) strategies from the past.
