Recommended Reading: Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Personal Development, and the Internet

Posted in Small Business and Web Industry.

Marketing, entrepreneurship, personal development, and the Internet. These are my interests and the subject of this blog. I’m also insatiable in my curiosity and learning, so I spend a good deal of time reading on these topics. Of the hundred or so RSS feeds I monitor, these are a few of my favorites.

  • Jason Calacanis Weblog

    Jason is a highly-successful, savvy Internet entrepreneur. I see a lot of myself in him, both good and bad. He’s always looking for the next opportunity, growth area, or innovation. And his site is full of these observations.

  • I Will Teach You To Be Rich

    They don’t teach you what you need in school. Saving money, investing in the future, managing your finances, growing your wealth—the “boring” stuff you need to know. Ramit Sethi will teach you what high school and college didn’t. Start your reading here >

  • Chief Happiness Officer

    Be happy at work. In starting my own company, I discovered that happiness is up to me. Since then, I’ve shared this site with a lot of people. Alex just put out an excellent book, too. Read it for free on his site.

  • Seth’s Blog

    Seth Godin is the author of several books on marketing. I have yet to read any of them, but I’ve been reading his site for some time now. My reading list has a few of his works at the top.

  • How to Change the World

    Guy Kawasaki: Developer, marketer, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, writer, and many other things. A talented blogger worth observing and emulating.

  • gapingvoid: “cartoons drawn on the back of business cards”

    One of my favorite blogs right now. I first got hooked because I got a kick out of the weird cartoons, but Hugh MacLeod brings a fantastic perspective to marketing. This is also how I discovered the cluetrain manifesto.

    I’m proud to have been linked up from Hugh’s site, too… my manifesto made his cut.

    Definitely Ramit’s, Seth’s, and Guy’s blogs are not to be missed. As a marketer myself, Seth always serves to spark new ideas. He is one of the foremost marketing gurus out there.

    Thanks for visiting!

    I’ve been adding a few new blogs each week. I also try to remove at least one or two as well, of the ones that are nothing but distractions. It always astounds me when I just discover blogs that everyone else has been reading for a year. I get this “Where have I been?” feeling.

    When I get my blog design done, I’ll have a reading list section to share all the stuff I keep an eye on.
