The Top 10 Blogs For Entrepreneurs That You Never Heard Of But Should Have…
There are some great blogs for entrepreneurs out there and when you do a search online for the Top 10 Sites for Entrepreneurs the usual suspects pop up:
- Entrepreneur Magazine
- Gary Vaynerchuk
- Business Insider
- Guy Kawasaki
- 4 Hour Work Week
- Inc. Magazine
- Seth Godin
There’s plenty of lists on the internet of the best blogs for entrepreneurs, so what makes this one any different than all the rest?
Well, top ten lists and lists of any sort are an interesting thing on the internet…
You see, some people use them as search engine ranking tools, or as a device to increase web traffic and as a result don’t put much time or energy into checking the blogs they put on their list.
If you go through some of the lists that have a larger number of blogs listed on them you’ll find that there will be links that don’t work and many websites which don’t seem to have a great deal of helpful content.
So, I decided to do things differently.
My criteria for inclusion on this list:
- Have excellent content that is easily accessible for entrepreneurs
- Have advice that can work for the solopreneur
- Not already widely known or have written a bestselling book
- Not pull you into sales funnel hell at every opportunity (if you don’t know what a sales funnel is, it’s a marketing tool designed to bring you, the consumer, along the path of buying a product through sophisticated sales and marketing processes – some marketers have read Dr. Robert Cialdini’s books far too many times)
So, in no particular order here are the Top 10 Blogs For Entrepreneurs. These are what I consider to be the BEST blogs out there for entrepreneurs that you probably have never heard of…
Top 10 Blogs For Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurship Life is a terrific blog and website which has great articles and information for entrepreneurs. From the website,
“Entrepreneurship Life, the place where entrepreneurs, start-ups, and business owners can find wide-ranging information, advice, resources, and tools for starting, running and growing their businesses. Our goal is to provide you with insights into entrepreneurship, business finance, leadership and management, and emerging technologies”
The website is cleanly designed and incredibly easy to navigate making it a true pleasure to find the information you need as an entrepreneur.
The frugal entrepreneur is the place to go if you are looking for free resources for your business. They have an extensive list of online resources and great articles as well. Definitely worth checking out.
Solo-E is a great site for the solopreneur who is looking for advice and tips for their journey. This is another fantastic website chock full of tools including audio and video information that you’ll find worthwhile.
Smart Passive Income is the blog of Pat Flynn. An excellent, clean website with a great blog full of useful advice. Pat is someone who knows what he’s talking about.
Copyblogger – The name says it all. This is the go-to website if you want to have a better understanding of writing copy and producing content in general. Check it out, you won’t regret it.
ThinkEntrepreneurship is terrific and has a ton of great content for entrepreneurs on just about every subject you can think of… From the website,
“The mission is to help and inspire as many other entrepreneurs as I can. You are here because you are passionate about life and are either thinking about starting a business or learning more about how to grow it. As entrepreneurs, we are always learning and improving ourselves, our businesses, and our lives. To find success, we need to learn from each other and help one another. Thus, the Think Entrepreneurship community is a place for entrepreneurs to connect and grow together.”
Ok, ok, so I put Chris Ducker on the list and his website says that his book is an Amazon bestseller… Well, so sue me… He’s got some great advice and thinking through using virtual assistants is well worth doing as an entrepreneur. Check out the information on his website.

The same bad habit that stalls huge companies for years can sabotage your career Resistance to change is the “Achilles heel of big firms and sepsis for careers.” So says Scott Galloway, a clinical professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business, the founder of the digital intelligence firm L2, and the author of the new book “The Four: Or, How to Build a Trillion-Dollar Company.” Most of the book explores the factors that have made Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook so powerful — but Galloway also takes a chapter to explore the factors that will make today’s professionals wildly successful. Interestingly, Galloway says that individuals can take a tip from The Four: Be curious and be open to change. Amazon, for example, is constantly running experiments — from the failed Fire Phone to a floating warehouse — to see what will pan out. Zara is similar in its chameleon-like approach to business.
