Books for Your Niche

I’ve had the honor this week to be this week’s guest on a discussion involving finding your niche and building your niche, on the Ryze group Women in Networking

Today I listed some books that I’ve found helpful to me, and decided to share this list with my blog readers. I’m sure there are many other book books out there, many of which I’ve not read yet. Add books that you’ve read, which help you build your own niche to this list.

8th Habit by Stephen Covey
Years back I took classes from Stephen Covey and have enjoyed his books. When I read his 7 Habits book, it was deja vu, stories and examples I heard in class. 8th Habit is different, takes things a step further. Shows the difference when someone finally finds their niche, where their unique talents and needs of the world line up together.

E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber
You want to own your business, not have your business own you. This book will take you through the steps of getting a new business off the ground to where it is up and running, where it can grow, without overwhelming your life.

Endless Referrals by Bob Burg
Once you decide your niche, building through referrals is my favorite way, beats cold calling and advertising any day. Both this book and the next one are great resources if you love referrals too.

29% Solution by Ivan Misner
Gives you a whole year worth of things to do to build a better network.

Tribes by Seth Godin
Very intersting book. With the internet, word travels quickly and through the use of Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. One can lead and create movements easier than any time before. Movements are needed, leaders are needed. Not whoever is the smartest, but whoever is willing to step out of comfort zone and do something different.

ProBlogger by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett
The internet is a great way to market your niche, learn from some pros who are making a great income throught their niche using blogs.

Go for No by Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz
Short little book, couple hours to read tops, once your read it you will understand why we should be collecting no’s, not avoiding them. Helps you make money with your niche.

  1. Thanks for the book recommendations. You always recommend the best books! Problogger being one!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. I always like to know what books others read and enjoy, and what they liked best about them.

  3. Great list of books. I’ve met both Michael Gerber and Ivan Misner – great people in person as well as in the written word.

  4. Those books sound like a wonderful way to build on your niche and market your services/products/ideas in ways that will truly get noticed. The Internet is still opening up in so many directions and there are only 24 hours in a day, so helpful strategies such as these books present are a realistic and targeted way to move forward.

    Thanks, Heidi, for that great list!

  5. Kathie, Always nice when in person, you see more of the person behind the book, especially when they practice what they preach. I took classes from Stephen Covey once upon a time, listened to Ivan Misner speak. Would be nice to meet you sometime.

    Eileen, I so agree, we are in an information overload. Much of what I read is because someone else pointed me in that direction. Nice to have directions from someone who has been there, done that.


  6. Heidi,

    I just received Grow Rich with Peace of Mind by Napoleon Hill as a gift so I’m starting on that. For me, my all time favorite was Speak & Grow Rich. It did wonders for my speaking career. I want to read The Go Giver by Bob Burg.

  7. Bev, you will love the Go Giver, and it is short and easy to read. I should have added it to the list.

    I’ve read Think and Grow Rich but didn’t realize he had several other books out. I will have to check into that.
