These five books will teach your child more than any college degree ever will

The whole student loan mess and the cost of higher education is a tired conversation. Everyone is having it. I did the formal education thing. I have three degrees and lots of certifications and training and they all have helped me be successful during my career.

However, I have to ask the question to myself? Could I have earned the same outcomes that I have today if I didn’t get those degrees? It’s a valid question. Obviously there is no way to know the answer to this question because we can’t go back in time.

What I do know for sure though is most of the calculations, knowledge around marketing, sales, leadership, business accounting, business strategy, etc. came from reading the right books and putting the knowledge from those books in to real world applications immediately.

I have read 600 + books since I started tracking them over a decade ago. Yes. I track them in a spreadsheet and I rank them and then take my notes from the book and put them in my journal. Yes. That’s how it is done if you want to use what you learn.

From these 600 + books these five are the ones I believe when applied and the information and knowledge is used in a real world application along with the right mentors is worth more than any college degree I have. And I have the receipts to prove it.
