My favorite articles are their interviews with young entrepreneurs. The information is priceless. Nowhere else can I converse directly with a CEO of a new startup business. Talking with them about their business model and the emerging market that they are pursuing is like a virtual mentor. For example, in this article, Derek Johnson Interview a young entrepreneur who has build an online business. The interviewer asks questions like
- To what do you attribute your company’s recent achievements?
- What three pieces of advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?
- What have been some of your failures, and what have you learned from them?
- Describe/outline your typical day?
- What stops you from throwing in the towel and giving up during those frustrating days of running your business?
My favorite is, what three pieces of advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?
1) Be Available
2) Start Small
3) Seek out advice
These three are key.
My second favorite articles’ are the ‘Entrepreneur University’ series, where they feature advice from an expert. Many of the experts that share advice are internationally recognized authority. For example, in this article, 7 Myths About Successful Selling - Entrepreneur University. Donald F. Pooley, an expert on marketing of financial services gives his advice about selling, which is a major part of any new startup.
