My top three marketing books for authentically building your authority, audience, and business

Recommended Reading

I have a BFA and began my career as a designer pre-internet. I have never taken a traditional business course. And now I do more website design and marketing consulting than I do traditional graphic design.

I really love to read and reading books has been crucial to my development as a designer, marketer, entrepreneur, and, well, human being.

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.” – Mortimer J. Adler

The three books featured in this post really had an impact on me and I find myself referring to them again and again. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Happy creating!
Jodi & Kim
