    That is, if you choose the right ones.

    Are you looking for some fresh new reads that can improve your business and profits? Then put these five books on your reading list this fall.

    The 4-hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss

    Want to work more efficiently and effectively and avoid burnout? Check out “The 4-hour Workweek.” You’ll learn about outsourcing, time management, and more — all the things you need to reduce your workload. 

    Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson

    This one is in the same vein as “4-hour Workweek,” offering a play-by-play strategy for streamlining your work and getting the most from your time and efforts. As the description explains, “The truth is, you need less than you think. You don’t need to be a workaholic. You don’t need to staff up. You don’t need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don’t even need an office. Those are all just excuses.”

    Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss

    If you need help in the negotiating department, pick this one up. Penned by a former FBI hostage negotiator, this book’s all about navigating conflict, discovering motive, and getting one you want out of negotiations — both business and personal ones. 

    Atomic Habits by James Clear

    Set yourself up for success by creating simple, intentional habits in your daily life. As the book explains, “If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.” Clear’s book helps you build the systems that can get your business going on the road to improvement. 

    The Millionaire Real Estate Agent by Gary Keller 

    Written by well-known real estate great Gary Keller, “The Millionaire Real Estate Agent” can help you take your business to the next level. The piece debunks myths, provides tips, tricks, and strategies, and shows you how to maximize your potential. Best of all? It’s available in audiobook, so you can listen on your morning commute (or on the way to showings).
