Business articles can be extremely useful but there are so many of them so I want to write some and find some specifically for you as the new novicepreneur.
You will be in the early thinking stages so how to be fabulous on Facebook or tweak your Twitter feed will probably not be on your radar just yet and to be frank, you don't want to crowd your mind with too many things or you may suffer overwhelm and then feel you can't move forward.
I suggest as a general rule for reading business articles, just select the ones that are relevant to your stage of the game.
I spent years reading about business and not really getting very far because I was researching but not taking much action.
I don't think stuff about marketing your small business will be much use either, you are far too early in your game, that can come later.
I am thinking more business idea stuff, early stages thinking, perhaps topics such as
Why do you want to start a business? (most people don't even give this very important question the credit it deserves)
How to start a business (it is probably so much easier than you think. More often than not the problem is not money or lack of it, the problem is you!)
Writing a business plan (you will learn my thoughts about business plans and they are probably not what you are expecting).
Free business ideas (entry to business these days can begin almost for nothing but I have my own views about how to start a business on less than half a shoestring and you might not like them).
Recession proof business ideas (some things just never go out of style no matter what the economy is doing)
Business name ideas (I love coming up with ideas, I will show you a formula)
10 home business ideas (I think this wil be a series because there are of course so many more than 10. Could be by industry)
I often chat to people randomly about them coming up with their own business so I though I would just quickly write a business article about the thought process when they uttered those wonderful words to me that I love, "I would really like to work for myself but I don't know what to do" or "I have an idea I would like to pursue but I don't really know how to get going with it"
And then the conversation starts and we come up with some ideas together, very quickly.
Here are some examples
Sometimes I will write about trends I think are relevant to you as you start thinking about what kind of business idea you might like to come up with.
Trends are a great area to tap into for ideas, for example:
