“Knowledge is like money: to be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value.” - Louis L’Amour
As a business owner, it is vital to stay informed on changing business practices, upcoming business trends, and relevant business news. As important as it is to stay informed, it is also equally important to learn from the experience of business trailblazers. Whether it is business news or entrepreneurial success stories, the internet is full of resources for informing and educating business owners. We have compiled our list of favorite blogs and resources for entrepreneurs and business owners.
1. Gary Vaynerchuck
Gary Vaynerchuk is dedicated to sharing what he has learned from building multiple businesses with fellow business owners and entrepreneurial minded individuals. His blog tells the story of the background to his entrepreneurial success and imparts brilliant business advice he has acquired through his journey to success. The blog is introduced with a bit of Gary’s background. “Fresh out of college, Gary grew his family wine business from a $3M to $60M in sales. Now, he runs VaynerX, a modern day communications holding company which owns one of the world’s fastest growing full-service creative agencies.
