Where do entrepreneurs hang out on the net?

Or do they? Just curious if, for instance, Subway shop franchise owners hung out at www.jareds-fave-sammich.com/discuss or something...

They don't - they're too busy running a business. :)

Good ideas, thanks.

>> They're probably too busy.

I think I qualified this question for the mild self-evident absurdity...

If somebody doesn't want to get $50 worth of books in order to study entrepreneurship, then I seriously doubt that he or she will succeed.

In entrepreneurship, getting information is VITAL. It's not optional, but VITAL.

So - entrepreneurs are busy, but getting information about their market, trends, etc, is a very high priority activity.

He wants to know if there's any discussion forums or blogs for entrepreneurs.  He didn't ask about business books.

ANSWER:  Check out the carnival of the capitalists.  You'll find links to a bunch of blogs:

HTH,

Thanks, that does.

Right. I've collected all of the foremost consulting and many business development books and read a majority of them. I'm looking for observations and discussion on business operation by real people doing it.

Just as the JOS forum is no replacement for serious study in CS or actual practice.

Bored,

I'm an entrepreneur myself and have been looking for similar resources.

JoS and SoftwareCEO.com are the best I've found to date.

Let me know if you find anything else.  (I'll check out COC)
