When you have a new passion that it can be a challenge to figure out where to find the right resources. Here is a list of blogs that have helped me expand my interests in entrepreneurship, philosophy, self-learning, and free-living over the last couple years. I’ve learned more about the world of entrepreneurship and life in general from these resources then I ever did from school.
Four-Hour Work Week: Tim Ferris is a machine. He’s a top angel investor and has travelled the world numerous times. He talks to everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Peter Thiel on his podcast. Has been very helpful for building strong daily habits and designing a lifestyle that suits working for a startup.
Brain Pickings: Maria Papova probably consumes more content than anyone I’ve come across and her blog has been amazing for finding new ideas to chew on.
James Altucher: Quickly challenging Tim Ferris for my favorite podcast host, James brings on interesting people with various backgrounds and his writing is hilarious and insightful. Has been extremely successful in business, but isn’t afraid to discuss where he has failed along the way.
Ryan Holiday: Ryan dropped out of college at 19 and hasn’t looked back. Through his mid-20’s he has published three books and was the director of marketing at American Apparel.
Farnam Street: Filled with interesting ideas. Farnam Street has been another go-to when I need a creative kickstart.
Sam Altman: Another successful young entrepreneur to learn from. Sam isn’t as well known as Ferris or Holiday, but his writing is thought-provoking and a lot of his posts are aimed at young people just getting started.
The Middle Finger Project: A good blog to keep up with for those on their way to starting a company. Talks about the ups and downs of life as an entrepreneur, good advice for sales and marketing, and always gives it to you straight.
Econlog: An old favorite. While I have discovered a lot of excellent resources on entrepreneurship, I find myself coming back to economics a lot. One of the best tools for gaining insights about the world and sharp thinking.
