RESOURCES FOR THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER
Making it in traditional small business or the internet business today is a tough job. The competition is fierce and the business-world is a vast environment to operate in. However, for the serious entrepreneur, help is always at hand. The enourmous number of e-books, book, newsletters and online forums available, make the finding of information easy and effortless.
Sifting through the information to find the real "golden nuggets" is a totally different story. The abundance of free e-books on offer makes it confusing and a daunting task.
It is my experience that the best information is the information that comes at a price. Just think about it: "Why would a guru give away his secret plan to become a millionaire overnight?" It usually is just the bait to lure the unsuspecting victum into his website to sell him another worthless outdated "secret" and making a few buck of you.
Being prepared to pay for valuable information is a way of commiting yourself to your business. Let us face it: "Everything comes at a price!"
On this page, I am putting together a list of resources, consisting of books, E-books and valuable websites that I think is worth it. Most come with a pricetag, but a some are free.
Consider your choices carefully. Remember it is your money! Most books are available through Kalari.net or Take 2 online shops (see the adverts on this page for the links). Compare prices on these two networks for the best deal.
