5 Must Have Books for the Black Woman Entrepreneur Soul 

Being an entrepreneur isn’t an easy feat; and in this pandemic it surely can feel like an uphill battle. However, Black women know how to get it done and make it happen. As a creative and entrepreneur it’s imperative to seek out resources to keep you  encouraged and motivated in pursuing your dreams and goals. One way is to read books by Black women to keep us uplifted in pursuit of the entrepreneurial life; check out these three must have books: 

  1. The Big Stretch: 90 Days to Expand Your Dreams, Crush Your Goals, and Create Your Own Success  By Teneshia Jackson Warner  

Warner offers a blueprint to strategically mapping out your dreams in 90 days through her twelve week boot camp program called The Stretch. I had the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Jackson-Warner speak regarding The Stretch, “What is the stretch? The distance between your comfort zone and dreams. You are stretched beyond your familiarity. There is another version of yourself waiting to meet you on the other side of your stretch. The best version of you counting on you to say yes to the stretch.” If you’re wanting to stretch your goals and dreams to new heights this is for you! 

2. Your Next Level Life: 7 Rules of Power, Confidence, and Opportunity for Black Women in America (African American Women in Business, Be Unapologetically You)  By Karen Arrington 

Level up, Level up...Your Next Level Life will give you tips to tap into ways to elevate as an entrepreneur. Arrington focuses on helping you generate more money, positioning yourself as the boss you are, and networking with other like-minded women. Level up your Black Girl Magic with this powerful read. 

The entrepreneurial life can be challenging; however, Banks provides a devotional to keep you inspired to create, dream and keep God at the center of your journey in Big Idea Food.  

4. More than Enough by Elaine Welteroth

This book is relatable for many black women both climbing the corporate ladder and navigating certain entrepreneurial spaces. Elaine gives some very real accounts and insights about race, identity, friendships, dating, and taking up space as a black woman in a predominantly white workspace. Welteroth reminds young Black girls and women that they are more than enough!



5. Everyday Magic by Mattie James 

Lifestyle Influencer turned author, Mattie James shares her perspective on how to balance and crush it as a mom, wife and entrepreneur in her debut book Everyday magic. She shows how a  “regular black girl” can start in whatever stage of life she’s in and still achieve her dreams!  

No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey these books are sure to enhance your creativity, ingenuity and passion. HAPPY READING!
