5 Great Online Resources For First Time Entrepreneurs

“To any entrepreneur: if you want to do it, do it now. If you don’t, you’re going to regret it.” – Catherine Cook

I starved my entrepreneurial hunger for years before I ever decided to feed it. That starting point for me was not just being made redundant, but dropping out of college for good.

And it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I have no regrets.

Though I’m no veteran in the world of entrepreneurship yet, there are resources you absolutely must check out if you’re dying to make the jump.

They’ve been helpful to me, and will most definitely be helpful to you.

1. Whatever It Takes Network.

Whatever it takes network is a digital business network owned by Grant Cardone. Grant Cardone is an international sales expert.

It features interviews, business, sales, branding and marketing advice from entrepreneurs across different industries.

And you can sign up for more exclusive content, which is also free.

This resource wasn’t around when I first started out in business, but as of recent I wish something like this would have been around.

You’ll learn more about sales and marketing on the whatever it takes network than anywhere else. The content is packed with ridiculous amounts of value.
