Inside the INCubator: Reading Roundup

Kristyna Bronner

A famous man once said, “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” You probably know that the famous man we’re referring to is renowned children’s author and illustrator, Dr. Seuss. While his message was likely intended for beginner readers, we think it applies to everyone, especially business owners.

Go online and you’ll find a slew of studies about the positive effects of reading on your brain, your writing skills, your mental health, etc. So, how can reading benefit entrepreneurs and business owners?  Reading allows you to learn without experiencing something firsthand—providing valuable insight for running a business and forming connections with customers.

We frequently go inside the INCubator to chat with our entrepreneurs about their businesses, goals, #startuplife and even their recommended reading. Here we’ve pulled together some of their recommendations in one place. Happy reading!
