There are quite a few entrepreneur sites out there with tons of helpful information about building your business or client list. Here are a few of them that I frequent:
Tuts+ is a website catered to entrepreneurs and freelancers with chock full of information like tutorials, videos, articles, jobs, and courses. The site is broken down into different sections like business, crafts, music, and game development.
I get weekly email blasts from the business side of Tuts+ and they are always full of information. And weirdly enough the timing of the article is always right. For instance I could be thinking about staying more productive then bam! Here’s and article called How to Start Every Day with a Productive Mindset.
Tuts+ is part of the Envato websites and was previously known as Freelancer Switch. They only recently revamped their site so take a look and check back for continued updates.
Springwise is amazing not just because of its helpful articles but because its continued promotion of cool start-ups and inventions. On there you’ll find a jewelry maker who hires blind people, a cloud service that allows graphic designers to rent fonts, and a pen that vibrates when you make a mistake. So many cool things they have on there from all over the world. This is another that I get weekly in my email and I love to see what’s being invented next.
This is also a great platform for would be investors. Looking for a cool startup to invest in and make a difference in the world? Check out this site. You can also submit your own company to be featured on their site.
Entrepreneur is mostly known for the magazine it puts out but it also has a lot of great articles and resources within its site. Also if you don’t want to spring for the magazine you can read some of their articles on the site and even sign up for their newsletter. One of the main things that I like about them is their app E Startups. It is specifically targeted to starting a business.
This is another blog that came out of the revamping of Freelance Switch. This is Mircrolancer which is geared towards designers and developers. It features new talent all the time and gives you ideas for projects and client needs. Their main site also offers services so that you can find a reliable person to get the graphic side of your business done.
Know of any other amazing sites that are great for entrepreneurs, let me know!
