12 книг для начинающих бизнесменов
Всем привет. В библиотеке LightSail представлено порядка 50 книг бизнес-тематики. Вероятно, их больше, но алгоритм поиска по названиям и описаниям пока не научился анализировать весь смысл произведения.
В основном они биографичные, и это оправданно: если у тебя получилось, расскажи об этом тем, кто пойдет подобным путем. Это сэкономит массу ресурсов новым бизнесменам. Меняются технологии, но принципы человеческих отношений, важность упорства и труда в достижении целей остаются неизменными. И представленные ниже авторы и герои являются отличными доказательствами этих тезисов.
Да, все книги на английском, ведь LightSail — один из лучших источников бесплатной литературы для изучающих английский.
