13 Great 'Take Action' Books Every Real Estate Investor Needs

Posted by Chris Clothier on Wed, Jan 2, 2019

Whether You Read Books or Listen to Audio Books, You NEED to Add These Books to Your List!

Every year I try to put together a list of books that I enjoyed reading the previous year. If you have read my lists in the past, you know that I often list books that I read over and over again because they are that impactful!

This year, I wanted to share the books that had really impacted my thought processes and even inspired me to take action.  As usual, not all of these are real estate books nor are they all investing books.  I strongly believe that in order to succeed, you have to surround yourself with the right people, the right resources, and the right attitude and these books are a great place to get started! If you're wanting to become a more successful investor and entrepreneur, I hope you check these titles out - each book image is linked to Amazon for easy shopping! 

Rest assured though, we do not have a sales account with Amazon so we are not sharing links where we make money.  These are just for easy access for you!
