Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄
This episode is going to be a small experiment. In this Christmas special, I'm introducing you to 5 of my personal and my podcast guests favorite business & startup books. Hence, I give you a crowd-sourced reading list from some of Europe's top up-and-coming entrepreneurs and VCs. I'm convinced that these books can help you to bring your business / startup to the next level, or to get motivated to "take the leap" yourself! It's also the perfect activity to read on a cold wintery day at home.
Since it’s Christmas, I'm also doing a little giveaway and will send to some lucky winner a book of his or her choice from this list. All you got to do is to review the Leap Takers Podcast on Apple Podcast (or your favorite podcast app), give it a 5 star rating, and send me proof (screenshot / link) to remo.kyburz1[at]gmail.com.
I'll then randomly draw a lucky winner. Deadline is January 1st 2021.
This is just a little thank you & Christmas gift from me to the listeners of the Leap Takers Podcast. 🎁
Thank you for your continued support and I hope you get some benefit and motivation from listening to this podcast.
I'm wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021!
Please follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and my Website, where I post new episodes and share resources & tips for anyone interested in entrepreneurship in Europe.
