This book has helped me understand what my business Arising Co should be focusing on to go from a good company to a great company.

The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley
Survey based book detailing the specifics of the Millionaire demographic. I enjoyed the focus on millionaire’s who were able to keep their lives in such a manner by low cost of living compared to others who although had riches, were not truly rich due to their high cost of living expenses. Provides perspective on how one can come to steward their lives in such a way so as to attain a millionaire lifestyle.

X: Multiply by John Bevere
Outstanding book on realizing that faithfulness means multiplication. Are we being faithful with the gift that God has given us? Ephesians 2:10 says we are His workmanship made in Christ Jesus for good works, that we should walk in them. It doesn’t mean that we will, however, and so how important it is that we surrender our lives and make use of our gifts for God’s glory.
