Top 3 Right Now: Emily’s Top 3 Books for Business-Minded Teens

This week we’re featuring a Top 3 List from Emily, our brand-new Business Services Librarian (and the former Teen Services Librarian at our Monroe community library.) This is her farewell post, (*sniffle*), so we hope you’ll enjoy her suggestions.

Take it away, Emily!

Emily hanging out on Mt. Baker

“Hi, Sno-Isle Teens! I have loved being a teen librarian for the past several years. I’ve truly enjoyed writing blog posts, sharing great reads, developing fun science programs, visiting your schools, and meeting you in our libraries. Now that I’m Lead Librarian for Business Services, I won’t be writing blog posts anymore, but I can still help you with your business ideas! For my final blog post, I’d like to share some of my favorite business reads and resources for teens.

Teen Guide to Starting a Business  by Gail Snyder
One of the reasons I like this guide is that it includes discussion of a business plan, which is an important tool to help you plan, fund, and market your business. Business plans can seem intimidating, but they don’t have to be. This guide will introduce you to starting a business and business plans, and when you’re ready to write your own, you can check out all our resources on them!

Careers – The Graphic Guide to Finding the Perfect Job for You by DK Publishers
If you’ve read some of my other teen blog posts, you already know that I always like to include a graphic novel or graphic guide, so here’s a lovely full color graphic guide to careers!

The Turning Your Tech Hobbies into a Career Series

One of the things I’ve really loved about being a teen librarian is learning about technology from teens. Thank you for teaching me how to use a hashtag! Did you know that you can get paid for these skills? Why not get Paid to Produce Videos? Or Paid to Blog and Vlog? (I didn’t even know what “vlog” meant until I became a teen librarian.) You taught me how to use a Snapchat filter, so I think you can definitely Get Paid to Manage Social Media!”

Thank you for the thoughtful and super useful suggestions, Emily!
