Starting a company is hard, so you’re going to need a lot of advice along the way.
There are many entrepreneurs, investors and bloggers who churn out business advice daily, but it’s a pain figuring out which sites are worth reading.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite sources of small business and tech news for entrepreneurs.
Running the gamut from hilarious, to informational, to controversial, to thought-provoking, these blogs are all must-reads for anyone who’s running a business.
Here’s some things that can help you connect:
- Listen. If they say your idea sucks, listen to the feedback, take notes, and ask for contact info. Then go fix the problems, or come up with another idea and demonstrate you listened.
- Get to the point. People like Ron Conway are busy. They are wildly rich, so the only thing that is limited in their life is time. You are taking away some of their most precious resource, so get to the freaking point. Don’t try to chit chat or ask about their kids or make small talk. Go right for the big ask. They are used to it.
