3 Must Read Blogs for Entrepreneurs and Startups

Today I’m sharing three of my all time favorite blogs for entrepreneurs and anyone interested in creating something unique and new.

I’m an entrepreneur at heart and I quench my thirst for knowledge about starting my own business by reading every resource available. I like to focus my reading on techie startups and how they are doing. These three blogs offer everything a budding entrepreneur needs to know about starting a business.

I want to stress that these sites will help you understand all aspects of running a business. It’s vital that you understand how to run a business before you dive in. It can help you avoid costly mistakes that could kill your startup.

Understanding how a business should run is just as important, if not more important, than creating your product or service.

Project Management and the Entrepreneur

Any entrepreneur will tell you that project management is a necessity. No matter the size of your project, you must stay organized.

Top 12 Most Influential Techie Blogs

Top 12 Most Influential Techie Blogs

I’m a techie blog junkie. On average I read five to 10 articles a day from a wide variety of tech blogs. My bookmarks have folders within folders of saved blogs and websites I like; not to mention my Evernote is full of saved articles.

Ten IFTTT Recipes to Improve Your Life

Ten IFTTT Recipes to Improve Your Life

IFTTT (If This, Then That) is a new app, and if you’ve used it already, you know how fun it is. If you haven’t had the pleasure yet, here are ten IFTTT recipes to get you started.

IFTTT creates connections between other apps. It’s great because it helps you improve the benefits and usefulness of your favorite apps.

I first started using IFTTT in conjunction with Evernote and enjoyed it so much I began looking for more ways to make my favorite apps work for me.

To create a connection with IFTTT you need to make a “Recipe.”

There are two types of Recipes; DO’s and IF’s.

DO’s are Recipes that enable you to create your own action button. This is usually an interaction from one app to another with a tap of a button on your smartphone. For example, when you press a DO button, a text is sent to your wife telling her that you’re on your way home.

IF’s are Recipes created to work in the background and automate a task between two apps. For example, IF you post (THIS) a new article to your WordPress blog THEN it will automatically post (THAT) to your Facebook page.

Here are ten of my favorite IFTTT Recipes…
