Resources for Startups – a list by Dan Lewis (as stated on Quora)

I was going hrough Quora when I found this really great answer by Dan Lewis on how to generate new ideas. The reason why I liked it so much was because he focused the post on people like me.

People like me are the ones who don’t have a business idea but are trying to come up with one, so we can build something that would help solve a problem (& maybe generate some cash too).

The full post can be found here:

However, I took a small section which lists some important resources that I thought would be helpful to all.

First I’d sit back and read…

Startup advice and stories

Checklists

Finance and Legal

Hiring

Blogs by entrepreneurs:

Blogs by VCs:

Quora entrepreneurs to follow (there are a lot of ‘must follow’ lists of entrepreneurs on Quora, of which many aren’t very active. These people are)

A little help Please!

I need your suggestions/ideas on how should I go about my current situation.

After unsuccessfully spending the last two months, looking for a business idea, I now stand in the same place where I started from.

I am so tempted to find any full time job and to start earning some money like I used to. But strangely every time I sit down to look for a job, I am not able to find anything that suits me. It has gotten to the point where I can point out atleast 100 things, that might be wrong with a particular job position and therefore, 100 reasons why I shouldn’t go for that position – a hazard for dreaming too much about having your own business.

So, I keep hopping in between the two options. I keep looking for things to sell and I also try to find places/positions where I can sell myself (not literally but you know what I mean).

The result has been complete wastage of the past few weeks. But I will turn it around. I don’t exactly know how, but I will have to.

What do you guys think!

From Mindshare in London, Nik Gill poses a challenging question: Can first world countries spend their overseas aid budgets more effectively?

On March 20th, 2013, Great Britain’s government firmly backed a legislation that would ensure that 0.7% (~£11 Billion) of Gross National Income will be spent on Overseas Aid.

With many skeptics feeling that this money is often wasted or better spent in more important areas, how would you like to see this money spent to change the perception that International Aid…
