With the weather warming up, many of us are looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors, fresh air, and sunshine. Whether it’s sitting in a park, enjoying the view from a porch, or curling up on a couch with the windows open, relaxing with an inspiring book is a perfect way to spend an afternoon. If you’re looking for something to read, this list has a few of my recent favorites for creative entrepreneurs.

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown

I’ve just started reading this after several people recommend it to me. Knowing how passionate I am about taking a less is more approach to life and work, it’s easy to see from the title alone how in tune it is with Marbury’s values. Having just finished another book about boundaries, this has been an incredible resource for focusing on what’s essential in your daily life and eliminating superfluous noise on a daily basis.

Brand Brilliance: Elevate Your Brand, Enchant Your Audience by Fiona Humberstone

This book is a comprehensive resource on the branding process that I’ve found myself recommending to a few recent Afternoon Tea clients. The prompts within it are particularly helpful for asking yourself the right questions about your brand and business, and uncovering your “why” during the brainstorming process.

#ANOTE2SELF Meditation Journal by Alexandra Elle

I recently discovered Alexandra Elle through Instagram, and was immediately pulled in by her way with words. She created this diary to give journalers an outlet for their self-care, healing, and emotional evolution. Each day, you use it as a meditative aid to set your intentions, answer a thought-provoking prompt, and write yourself a note—what better way to begin your day?

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

This is a novel that I really enjoyed reading recently, and think you will too. If you’re looking to dive deep into a captivating fiction, this book explores themes like motherhood, identity, secrets, and the danger of following rules too closely.

Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook by Alice Waters

I’d like to end with an inspiring story for fellow creative entrepreneurs, and Alice Waters feels like the perfect candidate. A pioneer of “California cuisine” who has redefined American cooking over the course of her career, Waters shares how her upbringing and surroundings ultimately led to the culture of Chez Panisse.

  1. Great list! I have Little Fires Everywhere checked out from the library, can’t wait to dive in. Adding the others to my list. What is the other book on boundaries you mentioned in the paragraph about Essentialism? Thank you!
