I often find myself in need of some bit of information about some thing or another as relates to my business. Sometimes I need to know about what trends are building up on the stock market, other times I need to know about what industry leaders are up to in their RandD departments. Either way, I often find myself turning to business magazines to find whatever information I am looking for. Whether it be online or paper format, business magazines give me the advantage when it comes to being savvy in a 21st century global economy. As a small business owner, I am constantly perusing various business magazines to find all the small little advantages that will put me over. There are even small business magazines specifically designed to cater to those of us in small business. One small business magazine, Fortune Small business, I find particularly insightful. It provides me with well written articles focusing on the aspects of small business ownership that appeal to me. But there are also big business magazines (or maybe just business magazines in general) that also provide valuable information. Forbes, for instance, has great advice on different money making ventures and how they compare to each other. That is really one of the best things to look for in my opinion, a business magazine that will give you two different ways of making money (say different ways of investing), analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each of those methods, and ultimately show you which one will help you the most depending on your situation. And remember, one of the most important things to keep in mind with any business venture is how it will affect your specific situation. The best advice I’ve received from business magazines has always centered around what my specific investing range is, my age range, my field, what my goals are, what my spending style is, how big my family is, what I want to be able to put away for my wife and kids, and a few other items which really help me narrow down exactly what my investment choices are. This sort of fine tuned investing is all thanks to the business magazines I peruse and the insightful articles and knowledgeable columnists who write them. If you are thinking of investing, then flip through some business magazines and find the strategy that is right for you.
