In today's economy, things are always changing at a rapid pace -- from how people shop to how they pay for goods and services. Many people have the idea of running their own business.

Whether they're stay-at-home moms or people who just don't want a 9-5 job (which is fine and great), they have questions as they dream about a more independent future. Questions like, "How do I start my own business?" "What do I need to do?" Or "Who can I talk to?"

I turned to books. Specifically books on how to be an entrepreneur in today's economy. These are my top five recommendations for entrepreneurs. These authors have a reputation for building their businesses from the ground up. Especially in today's economy. You can also get these books in audio form for free via the Audible App.
