The best book to start with is The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber. His book lies the foundation of a great business as he describes each and every business’s fundamentals. I read this book several times. First, to remind me of the building blocks, and second, while re-reading it, I find more and more wisdom in it.
To see Michael E. Gerber’s description in action, the book Built to Sell is highly recommended. Warrillow provides a step by step approach to get your business ready for sale. But keep in mind. You don’t have to sell your business. But without preparing for it, you just create a job for yourself.
Early Exits by Basil Peters describes the process of selling a business through the eyes of an entrepreneur who sold his business and through the eyes of an investor. After reading this book, you will understand why Michael E. Gerber and John Warrillow wrote their books the way they did.

Besides, Wickman provides many templates that will help you to build your dream mushroom farm.
