Mindset work takes time and there seems to be a lot of book our there for this. But these are my top 3 books for Mindset Work!I have a bookshelf in my bedroom FILLED with books I’ve read, going to read and cannot wait to read! I have LOVED reading for a long time now, but I haven’t had the time to do so. This year I have taken the time after clocking out for the day, or just a few moments after lunch to read.

These 3 books have changed how I think about things.

All of these books made me think about why I feel the way I feel, especially about money! You are a Badass at Making Money helped me change how I go about my feelings with money. It gives you exercises to do to help along the way!

Most of our money issues come from how we grew up.

I grew up in a large family on a dairy farm in rural Wisconsin. My parents always found ways to make extra money. We sold sweet corn from our yard along with having a rummage sale every year.

We saved money by shopping 80% of the time at rummage sales and thrift stores. With 6 kids it was a struggle to pay for everything, not to mention feed us all! We were that family at Sam’s Club with 3 carts of food!

By the time I made it college, I became a shopaholic and a little bit of a hoarder. As I felt free to spend but was afraid I was going to be poor all at the same time.

When I first started my business I was terrified I wasn’t going to have enough money. Justin and I were nearly evicted once.

Now, I have put so many things in motion that have helped me save money, not spend like I used to and have a life I love. You are a Badass at Making money has helped in a MAJOR way with all this too! I couldn’t recommend this book more if you own a small business!

** related – what growing up on a farm taught me **

Big Magic is probably my favorite! The way it’s written and how honest it all is so refreshing! It doesn’t read like a self-help or business coach book. It’s like you are reading a personal life story.

Big Magic has changed how I feel about a lot of things! Making me more open to ideas, creativeness and just new ways of thinking! This is a book that EVERYONE should read! Especially if you are a creative!

While I read books like these I put bookmarkers for the portions of the books that I want to look back on. All three of these books have A LOT of them! Some of these are quotes that I love, some are things I want to pass on to others at Rad Photogarphers Retreat and other small businesses.
