What books have you already read?
I'm not sure if you've Read "The Millionaire Fastlane " or "Unscripted " those are more mindsets.

I'll just drop this here as well
Books Fastlaners Recommend

Business in itself is also a very broad topic. So what are you wanting to learn IE (Finance, management, sales)?

The 80/20 Principle, Zero to One, The Lean Startup, The E-myth Revisited. Not quite the same as getting an MBA but you're learning from VERY successful 'do-ers' in these books.

Warning: some of them have conflicting ideas. This is important.

You won't find "exactly" what they're teaching. You will find many books that are teaching better lessons than I learned through my formal education. As I read, I love the books that are referenced in the books that I'm currently reading. I go on-line and buy them. It is an endless source of new reading materials.

Also, are you aware that the case studies and a lot of info from the Harvard Business School are available on-line too? And many other resources are there for your taking. There are libraries and libraries of videos, blogs and lectures available for free or close to free.

Try to read a whole range of ideas and different points of view. One thought leads to another. You never know where you'll end up from following those thought chains.
