Four ​Motivational​ ​Books​ ​For​ ​Every Builder by Brindisi Olsen Bravo

Hey Builders!
We loved meeting so many of you last week at our 2nd annual summit. As you move on to your next adventure, we've decided to share with you four great books that can help inspire you as you work to build your dream. When it comes to building, there are endless obstacles that can keep you from reaching success. We could all use a little inspiration along the way and these four books are sure to do just that.


The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
You may have read this classic back in high school, but it’s a classic for a reason. The Alchemist is a narrative that follows a young shepherd who dreams of doing something more. It teaches that life is about turning lemons into lemonade and about the power of following your heart. If you’re having second thoughts about building your dreams, be sure to read this book .

The Dip by Seth Godin
Do you feel like your life has plateaued or that your career has hit a wall? The Dip provides a logical and methodical way of evaluating where you are in life and helps you decide what your next move should be. Whether it’s leaving your day job or sticking with your small business, The Dip provides helpful tools for making those big decisions.

The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp
Everything we do requires a little bit of creativity. From planning an executive meeting to painting a masterpiece, relying on our creativity can help us with our day to day needs. The Creative Habit inspires you to make creativity a habit and gives you great ways to get out of a creative rut. 


The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines
This fun and upbeat book dives into the lives of Chip and Joanna Gaines: husband and wife duo of the hit HGTV series, Fixer Upper. Filled with honest advice and hilarious hiccups, The Magnolia Story tells of Chip and Joanna’s journey as they work to build their dreams. It reminds you to take a step back, enjoy the moment, and believe that everything will work out.
