CTB recently partnered with Dakota CDC to bring Pat McGill to Bismarck and Fargo for Dakota WE: A Gathering of Women Entrepreneurs. At the session Pat had a wonderful display of books she felt were essential for women in business. Here is a combination of her list along with a few more that I felt should be added to the mix. These are listed in no particular order.
