Book recommendations for a successful practice

If you are anything like me, you love to read books that expand your library of knowledge. I always feel so empowered when I get done with a book that allows me to grow my business. It is my form of motivation. I have put together a list of books I have found useful for my business. Read what you need and take notes.

Clockwork by Mike Michalowicz- This is a great book to help you understand how to create systems that allow your practice to run itself. It also gives great insight into who your client audience should be. This is an excellent book if you also feel stuck in your practice. It will help you to identify why you feel stuck and to come up with a plan to overcome that feeling.

The E Myth by Michael Gerber- This book points out all of the reasons most small business fail. It really helped me to understand that Processes and Procedures are the secret sauce for my business. It also explains to you how to overcome business challenges.

Atomic Habits by James Clear- This book is more of a recommendation on a personal level that will eventually feed over to your practice. For example, I started reading this book to make meditation a habit. Once I used the information I learned from this book to achieve my new habit, I realized that I could also do the same regarding business. Before I knew it, I had new business habits that transformed my business completely.

Profit First by Mike Michalowicz- The title says it all. This book gives you a unique view on methods for managing your practice finances. You will start to understand that the typical method may not be for you. It is a bit of a mindset shift to understand why putting your profit first is necessary.

It leads you to the perfect email marketing plan, and it will give you the confidence needed to be a leader and create a following that is needed to yield the results you are looking for.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey- This is where I learned all about values, personal, and business. This book taught me that as long as my values were first that everything else would align. I read this book at least once a year as I am always learning something new each time.

Perfectioneur From Workaholic to Well-Balanced by Khara Croswaite Brindle - This book is written by a therapist and gives you the true perspective on how to run a practice without burnout. It provides you with the skills needed to have a well-balanced home life and work life.

The Profitable Private Practice by Melissa DaSilva- This book is perfect if you are just getting started. It helps you avoid the most common mistakes when starting your practice. You will learn how to start, grow and scale your practice.

If these books were helpful for you, let me know. If you have any other book recommendations, please feel free to comment. I love adding more books to my collection.

PRO tip!

Create a book journal. Get a journal that is designated for books that you are currently reading, and write down the portions you plan to use or areas you know you need improvement on from reading the book. I have read many books and often forgotten what the book was about, or I just can't remember the useful tools the book provided. I go over my book journal often and use all of the tools that have been given to me through the book to help make business decisions.
