In this gift guide are my absolute must read books for bloggers, entrepreneurs, girl bosses, and creatives. Bloggers who are either starting their own business online or are in the midst of running a business and need to know the best business books out there will benefit from at least one of these books.
If you’re looking for a gift for your favorite entrepreneur, you literally can’t go wrong with a book! Most entrepreneurs LOVE reading and learning as much as they can. It’s vital to their success, too! Grab ’em a book and maybe some slippers to curl up and read on those winter nights!

This book is my number one choice for bloggers. Sally Miller interviewed 17 very successful bloggers to find out what made them successful! Highly, highly recommend reading.
“Ever wondered why some bloggers earn six- or even seven-figure incomes while most struggle to make their first $1000?”
Meera Kothand, a successful blogger in today’s blogging world, creating the One Hour Content Plan, to help you write an entire year’s worth of posts in 60 minutes, while staying cohesive and building a beautiful brand for your audience. If you want to be successful in planning and writing content quickly while blogging, read this one!
Branding is all about telling stories, and that’s what Donald Millers’ Building a Story Brand talks about. Learn how to tell stories that your customers can’t pass by, making your customer the hero, and you the guide. His Story Brand guidelines have helped me listen to my own stories that I already tell my customers, helping me refine my marketing message and telling the stories I want to portray to my customers, for them!
Gary Vaynerchuk is the online business world’s guru on all things social media. Gary knows how to fight his competition and hook his customers with his mad social media skills. Learning how to connect with your audience using social media is vital to any company’s success nowadays.
I also decided to put Crush It! By Gary Vaynerchuk because of his trailblazing expertise. Written before the Jab Jab Jab Right Hook book, but no less powerful, Gary shines in this book on teaching you how to cash in on your passion using online strategies and start making money.
Crushing It! Is the companion book to the Crush It! Book by Gary. After publishing the first Crush It! Book, Gary had numerous entrepreneurs talk about their story and how they created their dreams online and make money by taking care of their customers by being an influencer. Entrepreneurs such as Amy Schmittauer (now Landino) who is the boss of Vlog Like A Boss, and Lewis Howes tell the story of how they started their online empires using the same methods that Gary Vaynerchuk teaches.
Great for beginners, and another great book by Sally Miller: “In this book, the authors teach you everything you need to know to start a blog and earn your first $1000 (or more). If you love writing and are passionate about a topic then blogging is the perfect work-at-home job for you.”
This book shows you the 7 steps to hopping onto the Influencer Fast Track by taking you from zero to top of the pack in 6 months! Even Gary Vaynerchuk says it’s the best marketing ever on the Amazon product description! Now that’s saying something.
“Whether you’re an individual or you’re representing an organisation or a movement, a city or a country, Story Driven gives you a framework to help you consistently articulate, live and lead with your story.” From the Amazon description. I’ve heard fantastic things about this book, and even Seth Godin gives it a raving review!
