Kashiff Khan Insights On Entrepreneurship

Being an entrepreneur is all fun until it hits that you are not as experienced as others in the field. Your knowledge might not be on par with others who have worked in the industry for twenty years and that concerns you.

When you are a young entrepreneur, it is easy to feel like the world is against you, or you’re just uneasy in the world. Everyone you meet is older, or you have the impression that you aren’t qualified to work in the industry. However, that simply isn’t true and during such testing times, you need a strong mentor.

If you are struggling to find the right mentor for your business who resonates well with you, go find a book that can be your go-to when you need the right guidance and direction in your professional life. What you read can give you access to untold knowledge. It is a secret weapon that has the power to alter and expand one’s knowledge and horizon. The world’s best books are often written by authors who have learned life’s biggest and painful lessons.

When words are woven together, they often have the unmistakable power to transform us and mold us into a completely different person. Some of the most successful business entrepreneurs in the industry often swear by reading a book or articles online to stay on top of their game.

In today’s digital day and time, reading books has been often overlooked especially at times when one needs some inspiration and push and the usual instinct is to open their Instagram explore feed for the much-needed encouragement. While those Instagram quotes might validate you with its two cents from time to time but what stays with you for long is that old-school book packed with wisdom.

If you are a non-reader, you can start with setting goals and timelines for the number of books to read in a year. Research well and make a list of books that is of interest to you. This list can start with basic, easy-to-understand books for starters, and then gradually you can move forward and start delving into deeper topics and issues.

Lastly, don’t forget that it is completely alright if you do not finish reading a book that you had started. Not all books are meant to be necessarily read from start to end, especially when they are crappy.
