I think it would be useful to conglomerate or connect all the pieces of knowledge everyone has about businesses into one big piece so that everyone has a quick tool they can go to to find resources on starting a business. I am putting this out there ahead of time; I have never started a business of my own; I am in high school. However, I would like to learn as much as possible which is why I think it would be neat to put everyone's knowledge into one big lump of knowledge, resources, etc.
To make things a little organized in our posts of resources, here is a simple format:
National Resources go first
State Resources go second
City Resources go third
I am looking to try and catalogue all the information and advice out there about businesses and how to start and manage a business. I am looking for every resource people can advise. I am looking for how to start a business anywhere.
There are a couple of problems with the premise of this thread. First is the idea that we could possibly aggregate all of the knowledge and information about starting a business here. The subject is huge. Libraries are filled with attempts to cover it, piecemeal. Scores of major universities have massive programs in Business Administration, with loads of professors with opinions on this subject.
It is just a huge, huge subject. Then there are all the differences of opinions among "experts". People with great track records and antithetical approaches to business.
And then all the differences among different kinds of businesses.
And then the differences between conventional, traditional business models and the models being driven by the internet and online shopping.
Then the differences between both of those and a permaculture business paradigm. On this last, I do not know if anyone has yet attempted to seriously address it. I have not seen any books that appear to do so. Of course that does not mean they do not exist, just that I have not become aware of them to date.
Yeah, I guess narrowing the scope would best to make this thread more useful. If you find out about a permaculture business get-started book, article, podcast, video, etc, please post about it! I would love to know more!
