Reading Business Tips

Most small business owners will attest that running a business takes up most of their waking hours. When they’re not physically at their desk or in front of a laptop they’re thinking about some aspect of the job. It’s easy to become bogged down with the day-today practical elements of managing staff, going to meetings, keeping an eye on finances and answering the relentless flow of emails. Working “on” the business rather than “in it” can seem like an impossible task. It’s also easy to forget what first drew us to running a business in the first place. But often when we are able to take a step back and it’s at those points we find nuggets of information or advice that is helpful, or sparks a new idea. To take some of the legwork out of this, we have put together a list of practical, engaging and sometimes inspiring posts, podcasts and articles on the subject of business. They have been selected to offer useful business tips, provide insights, or spark ideas. Enjoy.
