Success seems to come easy to some, while the majority of us struggle to make it to the top of ladder. People who strive to be successful know to follow in the footsteps of those folks who are “living the life” we are working hard to achieve. Following in their footsteps and acting on their recommendations is the best way to learn and grow into a successful entrepreneur. It only makes sense that these people have experiences that are of great value to those who want to succeed.
Jessica Mah is one of those successful persons we need to follow. Incredibly, she started her first business when she was eleven years old and began coding at the early age of eight years old. It seems this lady was born with the destiny to succeed in business. She is the co-founder and CEO of inDinero: a free online financial dash board that synchs data across financial accounts. Jessica and her co-founder have smelled the sweet scent of success, and have had their share of ups and downs.
Jessica makes it a habit to read books, especially the books that will inform and inspire her. Jessica would like to see other entrepreneurs who want to succeed get the tools needed to do so and recommends the following books that are loaded with information and inspiration for entrepreneurs to be successful.
