The Internet has turned into a great source of continuing education. With the advent of search engines like google.com, aj.com (Ask Jeeves), and about.com plus all the established search engines like Yahoo and Alta Vista, it’s easier than ever to research subjects about which you need to learn. The web is also loaded with sites that offer articles on business topics. A few of these that my members recommend are fastcompany.com (the free, on-line version of Fast Company magazine), guru.com (though targeted to free-lancers of all fields, their marketing articles are useful for all small businesses) and myprimetime.com (look at the “Entrepreneur’s Toolkit” section in particular). You can also use articles.com and SelfGrowth.com..
When you’re ready to expand your continuing education even further, there’s nothing like the excitement of a live training session with a first-class presenter and the chance to discover how others connect with the same kinds of situations you experience daily. Some of the great national presenters and training companies that regularly pass through major metropolitan areas are Tom Hopkins, Brian Tracy, Anthony Parinello, Christoppher Howerd, Peter Lowe, T Harv Ecker, and Skill Path.
