As an entrepreneur starting out there’s a lot of things you need to know. And the best way to learn is reading books. I have been to university, I have been to ,000 dollar seminars I’ve been in masterminds I have mentors, you know where I have learned most of my knowledge is definitely from books and this is awesome because books are readily accessible from anywhere in the world and you can buy them for each on amazon and everyone has access to them and there is so much knowledge to be gained through books. A question that came up a lot after that, the audience was writing to me saying, “Sam that’s awesome but what books would you read specifically?” It’s a very good question and in today’s video I’m gonna share with you the four books that I believe every entrepreneur must read.


Sam Ovens is an entrepreneur from Auckland, New Zealand who dropped out of university and started 2x million dollar companies by the age of 24 working out of his parents garage.

Sam started as a digital marketing consultant helping businesses generate more sales online and then used the cashflow from that business to startup a software company SnapInspect that licenses a property inspection app to the global property management market.

Today Sam’s consulting business has grown from a one man operation to a multimillion dollar digital agency that manages millions of dollars worth of digital adspend each year and guarantees real business results. Today SnapInspect has grown from a scrappy garage startup to the global market leader in property inspection software with over 2,000 clients in 16 different countries.

Through his journey of failure and success Sam has learned many things and believes that none of his success was due to “good luck” but rather an understanding of a few key fundamentals and believes that his success is fully replicable.

Sam’s story is unique and his advice to other entrepreneurs is clear and practical. Sam’s interviews, online courses and posts have inspired over 200,000 people around the globe and hundreds of people have started successful businesses with his advice.

    wow, watching old vids – interviews with you etc, (if someone is dominating – learn from them right) you have lost a lot of weight. Well done – that in itself is a mission.

    another good sales book: sell or be sold by grant cardone

    You know Sam, I prefer you to Tai because you hold yourself more professionally and you don’t sound condescending. Although both you and Tai both have every reason to talk down to your audience, I’ve yet to see you do it while Tai does it in 70% of his videos.
    Well anyway, thank you for sharing, and I hope your business lives long and prospers!

    Do you think you can recommend me a book on consulting?

  • February 26, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    Great information to assist entrepreneurs. Thank you Sam.

    Thank you Sam. Any other reading recommendations of late. Malts is excellent, I agree!

    Just as a heads up… They do not refund you as they lead you to believe. As a college student, I signed up and quickly realized this was not for me. I am sure there is some value but they will NOT give you your money back as promised.

    They gave me 50% back so now I just lost $1000 for nothing.
