1. Lifehacker

One of the best places to get both personal and business advice, suggestions, solutions, tips and hacks is Lifehacker. It’s one of the few places that always has practical advice daily.

2. Inc.com

Inc.com is a great resource for quick reads on practical business advice. It’s designed in a way that makes finding content to suit your needs extremely quick and easy, and again, it’s very easy to read.

3. SaaStr

SaaStr is a great blog for SaaS businesses that want to stay on top of best practices and industry news.

4. StartupDigest

StartupDigest’s reading list is one of my favorite resources for advice. The content each week is diverse — spanning business and technology — and comes from thought leaders across industries. The articles all address issues in startups in real time, so readers have a great sense of trends in the space. The articles also all have highly actionable steps.

5. US Small Business Administration

The U.S. Small Business Administration is a great resource for practical business advice. It offers clear and unbiased advice on how to start a business, ways to obtain financing, how to manage a business and more. It also offers ways to find in-person local assistance should you need extensive, personalized advice.

6. Seth’s Blog

He might not be direct with his writing, but the points that Seth Godin makes every day on his blog are always meaningful and relevant to business and marketing. He has a way with metaphors that put certain concepts in thought-provoking and actionable formats. It makes for a very entertaining and worthwhile daily read.

7. ShoeMoney

ShoeMoney is not a business blog per se, but it’s all about business. I can relate to Jeremy’s Blog since he started small and made it big with the help of the Internet.

8. Blogcast FM

Blogcast FM publishes lengthy audio interviews with business owners on a regular basis. It’s an easy way to learn about how a number of different companies operate daily.
