Resources > Entrepreneur Development

Every successful business starts with a seed - a business idea - that needs hard work and nurturing. It also takes a generous amount of entrepreneurship before that seed can blossom into a growing, thriving, successful business. Entrepreneurship isn't something you're born with - it's a skill that you can learn and hone and once you've built it, you can never lose it. We've compiled what we believe is an excellent list of resources to help you build your entrepreneurial skills.

This website is an excellent resource for people who are seriously considering starting a home based or small business of their own. They offer FREE quizzes and a comprehensive 14 part online course.
Their focus is clear and simple : Help people succeed in business.

This is a global network of business owners with over 140 chapters in 40 countries. EO's 3-pronged approach to entrepreneurship development is Peer to Peer Learning, Once-in-a-lifetime experiences and Connection to Experts. The only reason we've given EO a 4-star rating is because membership is on an annual subscription basis, which may exclude small-budget home based business owners, but like anything in this world, sometimes you have to give to receive.
