I left high school a full year early, and as a condition of early graduation my parents had to sign off on it being under 18 years old. They had another condition too, that I attend the local junior college and take at least two classes. As a master of the minimum, that's just what I did, took only two. I took Intro to Business for exactly what it was and Criminal Justice out of curiosity.
I got lucky with my Intro to Business class, the professor was a self made millionaire teaching for only a dollar in salary per year. He had quite an opinion and one of the best pieces of investment advice that I picked up came from him. Simply put, to make money in business you need to look for trends.

StartupNation.com is one of my favorite reads and one of the regular sites that I frequent for news and ideas when it comes to helping small and emerging businesses, like my own. They are sporting a new look that makes it easier to read and keep up with the latest topics on my iPad.
Sections I enjoy are Getting More Sales, Leverage Business Technology and the general spirit of entrepreneurship that StartupNation.com promotes. You'll never get rich working for someone else, so start and build your business around something you love to do and take the advice of other business owners that have traveled the same roads.
A little insight might just make the difference between being successful or making a costly mistake.
