$100 start up is a good book. Currently reading that now. Mark Cubans book was good as well.

Rich dad poor dad was good. This is one if my favorite quotes lately:

Jim Carrey said this in his Commencement Speech.

"You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts.
Worrying about the pathway to the future,
but all there will ever be is what's happening here
and the decisions we make in this moment which are based in either love or fear.
So many of us choose our path out of fear and disguise it as practicality.
What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect
so we never dare to ask the universe for it…
I'm saying, I'm the proof that you can ask the universe for it.

My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn't believe that, that was possible for him.
And so, he may a conservative choice. Instead, he got a "safe job" as an accountant
and when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that "safe job" and our family had
to do whatever we could to survive.

I learned many great lessons from my father.
Not the least of which is that can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance
on doing what you love."
