1. Intuit Small Business Blog

The makers of QuickBooks have created their own blog full of advice for entrepreneurs.

A free Online Marketing Tool Kit is also available that will teach you all about email marketing and search engine optimization.

2. CNN Money- Small Business

By far one of the best ways to stay up to date on what’s going on in the entrepreneur world. Here’s you’ll find current event articles as well as entrepreneur profiles of those who found success. There also is frequently a feature on new startups forming that will give you new ideas for your own business.

3. Start Up Nation

Check out their searchable database to find information on everything you always wanted to know about business but didn’t know where to ask.

4. Small Business Association

No matter where you are in the lifecycle of your business you have an advocate. The Small Business Administration works on your behalf to make sure legislation is written in favor of entrepreneurs and also works to grant federal contracts to small businesses. This site provides advice on funding, finding a counselor and much more.

5. Inc. and Entrepreneur

These are two great magazines online with business advice, fun profiles (here Richard Branson talks about why he avoids ties) and great infographics. Great information told in a fresh voice.
