1) The Blog of Tim Ferris
Tim Ferris is the author of The Four Hour Work Week and The Four Hour Body. His blog is pretty awesome as he has tons of older posts related to starting a business that requires little managing once it is up and running. He is famous for coining the term “muse”: a low-maintenance business that generates significant income.
He teaches you how to create a muse, outsource your business (and life, if you want), automate your business, and eliminate the clutter in your life - All with the hopes you will have more time, tons of it, to do what you truly love doing and travel. Check it outttt! (click the box below)
2) College startup
Okay – This is an awesome site for student entrepreneurship. This is THE site I went to almost 489578745 times a day when I first wanted to learn about how to run a business while in college. It’s great for those of you wanting to start an internet based business – but is applicable for any type of business.
The blog was started by Ben Bleikamp, who graduated from Ohio State University. It’s been up and running since 2005 and has tons of posts related to all sorts of topics, such as marketing, business ideas, e-commerce, blogging, networking, social networks and more. If you’re serious about starting up a business while in school this is a no brainer. It’s a great supplement to Start It Up TV. Click the banner below and get ready to be on the computer for a while…
3) Life Design Project
In Robert Granholm’s words, The Life Design Project is “raw real life dismantling of efficient living, automating income, entrepreneurship, and living your dreams.” This blog is insanely useful if you are trying to build a business around a muse (you know, what I was talking about with Tim Ferris and the Four Hour Work Week).
Rob basically took what Tim Ferris teaches in the 4HWW and documented his experiences in creating a muse around his IT company, IT Arsenal. Rob’s blog is full of detailed information for each stage of creating a muse: Definition, Elimination, Automation, Business. Once you read the 4HWW, have an idea of what your muse is, and are thinking “now what?” – this is the place to go for a step by step “how-to” for getting your muse off the ground!
4) Tech Crunch
If you have never been on Tech Crunch before, do it now. Don’t even bother reading this text. Just go.
But if you do want to read some text for whatever reason, Tech Crunch is a kickass recourse that offers information related to tons of information about Internet technology startups doing big things. They talk about mobile startups, social startups, and gadgets. I love going on Tech Crunch just to see what other startups are doing, which ones are being bought out or releasing an IPO, and for some simple inspiration.
“Mashable is the largest independent news source dedicated to covering digital culture, social media and technology. Mashable reports on the importance of digital innovation and how it empowers and inspires people around the world.” I can’t say it better – so I won’t try.
Just a really cool site that talks about everything you’d want to know about that happening in the digital world.
