Question: Which bloggers should young entrepreneurs read for inspiration and advice?
Fred Wilson at AVC
"Fred Wilson is a legendary VC and the Managing Partner of Union Square Ventures in New York City. At AVC, he writes one of the most popular startup blogs and covers issues from negotiation to hiring to fundraising. He's a machine for dispensing helpful advice and insightful commentary for those in our industry."
Neville Medhora at Neville's Financial Blog
"Neville's Financial Blog is a really fun and entertaining blog that shows the power of "hustle." The author experiments with selling bottled water, crashing high-end parties, reselling confiscated airport stuff and even trying out being homeless to see what it's like being at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder."
The Art and Science of Making Irresistible Requests
"I love The Art and Science of Making Irresistible Requests, a site dedicated to teaching how to request what you need from colleagues, team, mentors and clients. Whenever I get stuck on an email or am resisting making a call to ask a favor, I review the principles. It's truly is an art and science!"
Ramit Sethi at I Will Teach You To Be Rich
"Ramit Sethi at I Will Teach You To Be Rich is great at teaching people how to negotiate, and the mental barriers that we all experience in life. He's also got a course and free articles on starting a business and following your dream, or your dream job."
Amy Hoy at Unicornfree
"Many of the 'follow your passion' bloggers out there fail to give actionable advice. Amy Hoy at Unicornfree is a clear example of someone who has effectively built the business she wanted, and is willing to share clear information on how readers can do the same thing. She doesn't want you to build a business on glitter and rainbows."
The Toren Brothers at Blogtrepreneur.com
"Matthew and Adam Toren of Blogtrepreneur.com create fantastic content for young entrepreneurs around funding, inspiration, motivation, negotiation, and much, much more. It's a fantastic online resource, and a great community as well."
