Beneficial Bits for Busy Businesspeople

It’s tough to find the time to learn how to start a business, discover new things to take your business to the next level, or in my case at the moment, how to increase efficiency and effectiveness of a small non-profit corporation. In the previous post, I mentioned a great workshop — but, it is only great if you were able to attend. However, there are other resources out there to help busy people succeed in business. The Small Business Administration (SBA) online training offers video courses. In addition, SBA offers podcasts that you can listen to on your computer or download to your MP3 player or iPod. Apple’s iTunes offers free and for purchase downloads of business information for your iPod. Some of the podcasts to which I subscribe (for free!) is a Internet business marketing podcast and BusinessWeek‘s entrepreneurship article. Since I spend a lot of time in the car, it is great to have these resources to make time on the road productive.
