John W. Collins, Founder & CEO of Omniix

“I just finished the book, and it’s called “Shoe Dog” by Phil Knight, founder of Nike. I think its such an amazing story. It talks about how he created Nike and how he had to travel to Japan and around the world back in the Seventies to create Nike.

Nike is doing the exact same thing we are doing today. Phil Knight was a private label guy–that’s how he started. And so he found a manufacturer who was already making shoes and he said, “Here’s a label I want you to put on it.”

It puts into perspective how easy we have things today and how much he put into what it means to build a brand.”

Nathan Resnick, CEO of Sourcify

“[I recommend] “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferriss. I know it’s a bit outdated nowadays, but when you think about the concepts that are presented in the book, it really teaches you to automate, outsource, and optimize your business. I looked at it from a higher level, took those key points and applied it to my everyday life.”

Sophie Howard, Founder of Aspiring Entrepreneurs

“I recommend a really, really good book just to keep it all into perspective and you focused. It’s called “The 12-Week Year” [by Bryan P. Moran and Michael Lennington]. This is a concept where you really knuckle down and get on with the work that really matters. You can achieve in 12 weeks what most people can achieve in 12 months.

And it’s also nice to arrange your work into little sprints. You can’t sprint all the time, and a really long marathon is pretty boring and a bit of a slog. It just really ups the work and gives a lot of focus and clarity. I’ve never worked as productively as when I’m following that, probably.”
