Getting By With a Little Help from Our Friends

Your entrepreneurial path is likely to be a strikingly individual one, because it’s driven by unique-you. That doesn’t mean there aren’t different types of support along the way. In this article we share six Thought Leader websites which inspire or help us – we hope you receive value from their content too.

Simplicity of thought often makes for the most resonant writers on business or life. If you’re looking for snippets of wisdom, common sense and sometimes inspiration try Seth Godin’s blog.

2)When you’ve created a real business, good advice starts to really matter.” Peter Shallard

Mr Shallard’s blog is called The Shrink for Entrepreneurs which about sums it up. Articles with depth that are blissfully SEO waffle free.  You’ll find wisdom here and (hopefully) be encouraged by some of the things he has to say.

The FNB Blog’s many Thought Leaders disseminate solid, up to the minute financial information with the writers casting their nets across topics from African economics and investment news to financial planning.

4) “Management books and commentaries often oversimplify, seldom providing useful guidance about the skills and behaviour needed to get things done.” Getting Beyond the BS of Leadership Literature by Jeffrey Pfeffer

The Mckinsey website is like a learned, well traveled and brilliant friend who is there to visit, day or night. It might be a slightly one sided conversation but it is good to listen to the sublime business voices of these writers.

If someone isn’t making you stronger, they’re making you weaker.”  Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

We can’t promise you’ll love Tim Ferris, or even like him – but anyone who envisaged and created a hugely successful and sustainable 4 Hour Work Week deserves some of your time! He lives life as an experiment, doing the seemingly impossible, both intellectually and physically. Just reading his website will leave your adrenalin levels higher.

6) “If you concentrate on what you have, you will always end up having more. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey is powerful platform with many different areas to visit. The Career section alone should keep you busy for some time. Oprah and her network focus on instilling confidence and bringing about transformation, making you feel capable of achieving anything – which, of course, you are!
