Good entrepreneurship blogs
« on: June 14, 2018, 10:18:07 AM »
My wife is fed up with working to someone else’s schedule and wants to start her own business, but feels overwhelmed and gets discouraged when she actually tries to think of ideas and how to get started. Anyone have suggestions for blogs that are geared toward giving someone the confidence to start a business?

Side Hustle School and Side Hustle Nation - they're podcasts, but fun and encouraging, with lots of good ideas.
