Your Reading List

The Alchemist

Ok, this isn’t necessarily a “business book,” but it is a thought-provoking read about following your dreams and listening to your heart. I recently met a fellow boss lady who told me how this book changed her life and kick started her into opening her own business over five years ago. Enough said right?!
 
In case that’s not enough to get you to pick this up, here’s the blurb from Good Reads:
 
Paulo Coelho’s enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its powerful simplicity and soul-stirring wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried near the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles in his path. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.
