Business Articles 

Business articles can be extremely useful but there are so many of them so I want to write some and find some from around the web specifically for you as a novicepreneur.

You are in the early thinking stages so how to be fabulous on Facebook or tweak your Twitter feed will probably not be on your radar just yet and to be frank, you don't want to crowd your mind with too many things or you may suffer overwhelm and then feel you can't move forward.

I suggest as a general rule for reading business articles, just select the ones that are relevant to your stage of the game.

I spent years reading about business and not really getting very far because I was researching a lot but not taking much action.

I don't think stuff about marketing your small business will be much use either, you are far too early in your game, that can come later.

I am thinking more business idea stuff, early stages thinking, perhaps topics such as

Why do you want to start a business? most people don't even give this very important question the credit it deserves.

Find Your Strengths - If you work to your strengths your business life will be easier instead of being an uphill struggle. Don't confuse skills with strengths. Skills are what you do, strengths are who you are.

The Obstacle Analysis Grid (TM) - Are you finding yourself stuck when you try to go forward with your small business idea? Perhaps this grid can help? It's a synopsis from a great book I read, I shared it because I thought it was a really great tool to help you move forward.

To many ideas and you can't pick one? - Emilie Wapnick is a lady I believe you could learn an awful lot from, if you have a problem choosing what it is you want to do.

She has created a course and written a book about the tribe she calls Multi-Potentialites.

11 things to think about before starting a business - it is not enough to start a business because you hate your job this week, you need to give some thought to a couple of other things. You need to give some thought to what you are thinking about.

Have you chosen the right business - by that I mean, you might have the right  industry but are you creating the right business for you within it or have you just followed conventional business wisdom to follow your passion?

It is not always the right advice.

10 home business ideas - 10 evergreen industries that are booming but there will always be a place for your business. Evergreen business ideas never go out of style.

Service business ideas - if you search online for them, there are so many listed but to shortcut your search time, learn the formula for picking out the ones that suit you best. Just because you can type doesn't mean you have to offer typing services.

Writing a business plan - if you feel it is time, but you prefer the back of a cigarette packet or beer mat option way of doing it, try the modern business plan method, the business model canvas.

Writing a bit more about a business plan - this time I mention the simplest business plan in the world  I adapted from a book by the very gifted Paul McKenna
