Top 5 Online Resources for Personal Growth and Development

Generally Speaking, as an entrepreneur time is a valuable commodity that one simply cannot afford to waste. One of the key aspects of living an entrepreneurial lifestyle is constantly trying to find helpful resources for personal growth and development. Below I have compiled a list of online resources that have inspired me a great deal to research, develop, and expand my own professional life. I genuinely would like to see anyone gain as much possible benefit from these 5 resources as I have.

1.) IWTYTBR (I Will Teach you to Be Rich) Personal Finance Blog

Since finding out about Ramit Sethi and his highly beneficial personal finance growth strategies as well as his other areas of expertise I now find it strangely exciting to read about financial development strategies. Ramit has the unique ability to make seemingly boring topics come to life by understanding his audience and somehow has managed to inspire me to enjoy personal finance development. Dive into his world and see what it does to you, for me personally his material has jump started my drive for personal success like a defibrillator

2.) Fidelity Investments

From the millenials I have spoken with about how they feel about the stock market, the general consensus is that many haven’t the slightest clue on how to invest or what kind of affordable investment channels and resources are available to them. Fidelity Investments is a straightforward, user friendly way into the stock market for younger people. Easy to set up an account. Easy to start investing. Not intimidating once you get started. Although I do not advise investing unless you have what you already need for up to six months of regular expenses set aside in a savings account.

3.) Twitter

Yes Twitter did make this list. The super fast paced social media outlet allows you to customize and quickly connect with current news, celebrities, and everything else. Staying up to date on current events has never been so convenient. I also find the twitter update atmosphere slightly more positive than that of Facebook (depending on your friends) but I see more proactive information streaming down my twitter feed although LinkedIn is unmatched in this regard. Twitter is my top pick for customizing online profiles you want to follow and staying engaged via information overload.

4.) 60-Day MBA

Student loan debt is simply crushing our society and there has always been a way around it for those with that entrepreneurial spirit. Working for yourself can be an intimidating undertaking but with the right tools and step by step development you can make more money by becoming your own boss than at a 9 to 5 and the best part is you get to choose what you do to earn a living. 60-Day MBA is a sixty day course that lets your work one-on-one with successful professionals out of silicon valley. The course provides you with the answers you need to work for yourself and leave your financial worries behind. Becoming an entrepreneur, living the American dream, and gaining valuable hands on experience is the new college degree.

5.) Your very own online, profiles and websites!

What can possibly be more important for an online personal growth and development resource list than your own digital footprint?! Nothing! The image you present to other people on the internet can be a valuable asset and create long term professional connections. Sometimes reading a person’s LinkedIn profile can encourage you to reach out to that person on a professional level. The way you express and present yourself online is the ultimate way to let the world see through a window of what you want them to see of who you are. The easiest way to meet people you would NEVER meet otherwise. We live in a generation where every opportunity imaginable is only a mouse click away.

A book that gives you power over your finances

How many of us often feel trapped by our own financial situations?

Overwhelming debt, worrying about credit scores, unexpected fees from big banks. The number of concerns created by personal finances can be overwhelming and often our financial situations control our lives. How would it feel to take back control?

Ramit Sethi’s I Will Teach you to be Rich is like that little logical voice in your head telling you to stop rationalizing financial mistakes that you have the power to change. The book makes it easy to tell the lazy rationalizations to take a hike and begin your path to regaining control of your personal finances.

I first started following Ramit’s blog January 2013 and I have been hooked on his advice ever since to my own benefit. Within a month of reading his free material online I had higher levels of confidence in negotiation, job hunting, financial awareness, and personal branding. This post is by no means to promote a great book although it does naturally but instead it is meant to motivate you to read something that can improve your future without overwhelming you. You will feel empowered by realizing that you do have the power to improve your financial situation no matter your current financial state.

I also recommend Ramit’s free material and YouTube videos which can be easily found online.

The benefits of free Coffee Club Networking in Clarkston Michigan

How do you currently spend your Thursday morning?

From 7:30 am to 9:00 am every Thursday morning at Clarkston’s United Methodist Church you may be missing a free networking opportunity. Small business owners, job seekers, employers, entrepreneurs can benefit by expanding their local network at Coffee Club.

Sometimes people like to know what they are getting into before they show up at a networking event so allow me to go over the basics.

Clarkston’s Coffee Club consists of free networking, coffee, donuts (sometimes cookies) and an optional dollar donation to the church each week for allowing us to use the space. From 7:30 am to 8:00 am people can exchange business cards, make introductions, and leave a pile of their business cards on a table where the cards are displayed each week indefinitely (we never discard business cards on the table, even if you only show up one time). At 8:00 am each attendee is given one minute to share in front of the group with their website displayed on the projector. Once everyone has been given the chance to speak generally an additional 20 minutes of networking will then ensue.

Attending a free networking event not only benefits you and everyone else in attendance but it also creates the opportunity for individuals to expand coffee club by inviting everyone within their network to coffee club which expands the overall network for everyone at Coffee Club. The opportunity then becomes limitless and creates a weekly networking event that becomes as valuable as the amount of effort the current attendees are willing to put forth to expand the network. Plus the the additional business they already generate from existing attendees.

Coffee Club is a win win and if you believe your business could benefit from free networking with highly motivated individuals then join us next Thursday at 7:30 am.

Coffee Club address: 6600 Waldon Rd, Clarkston, MI 48346
