Read All About It!

15 Feb

Our world changes faster than ever. News spreads like wildfire. The economy is a rollercoaster. Business is terrific one day, but sluggish the next. We try hard to anticipate changes – good and bad – and, even if some of us are not avid readers, reading up on all that’s relevant helps keep us on our toes.

Yes, you can look to top newspapers or finish breakfast with your morning news program or buy a bulky biz book. But what about blogs? As bloggers ourselves, we’d like to recommend you other blogs we browse – whether for laughs, inspiration, ideas, or advice. In our opinion, blogs can prove to be solid resources to keep your small biz trucking along. After all, information is power.

We’ve divided our picks into three categories. Enjoy!

Business + Other Seriousness

Duct Tape Marketing – This offers fantastic small business marketing tactics all available in one spot.

The Consumerist – We may all be business owners, but in the end, we’re all consumers. Know the facts and protect yourself.

Get Rich Slowly – As their website says, they offer tips so that “personal finance makes cents.”

Small Business Trends – Whether you’ve been in business for a year or a decade, this belongs in your toolbox.

*For more business-savvy blogs, we love this list.
