1. 11 Mar 2020 STRIM S-LOG Doyeon Kim — Founder and CEO at STRIM My Top 3 Books To Read for Entrepreneurship
2. What I do. I’m a female entrepreneur, voracious reader, and wine enthusiast living in San Francisco, CA. Those three roles are the fuel what keeps me going. Other than that, I try to automate everything.
3. What I love. I put books almost everywhere around the house to automate my learning moment. Whichever page I ﬂip through, there is always a quote I can relate to. I love sitting down with thought leaders listening to their ideas and insights. Also, it takes almost no eﬀorts to carry their brains out via paperback.
4. “Did you hurt your knee?” I love the Arnold Schwarzenegger’s episode from Tools of Titans, where he talks about how he engaged with competitors to get into psychological warfare. He asks intentionally “Did you hurt your knee?” to his competitor athlete. Basically, he has primed the competitor’s mindset to his vulnerability, then it really threw him oﬀ in an unbelievable way. That simple question displays his true warrior mindset. Arnold says, “I wasn’t there to compete. I was there to win.”
5. Highlighting keeps me awake, involved, and mindful of what the book is oﬀering.
6. My Top choice #The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz If you want to engage in a true venture backed fast growth technology startups’ story, don’t watch Social Network; rather, listen to Ben’s voice.
7. My Top choice #The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz There are pages I’d like to get back to. Storytelling is very personal. Ben just shares his own experience, including mistakes and painful moments.
8. 2nd Choice #Common Stocks and Uncommon Proﬁts by Philip A. Fisher Fisher is the king of qualitative analysis of stocks. Why am I reading ﬁnancial gospel? Well, you can really see diﬀerent point of view of management.
9. 3rd Choice #Think Like Your Customer by Bill Stinnett This old book has full of applicable advices. It spells out speciﬁc strategies on developing value and goodwill towards your prospects and customers. I love the diagram too. ◼
10. “Not what you know, but what you do matters the most.” #entrepreneur #voracious_reader
