One way to test the waters of entrepreneurship is to talk with people who have started a business. Where better to get advice, technical help or a real-life perspective than from entrepreneurs who have lived through the startup process?
Social media provides plenty of opportunities to find entrepreneurial types who enjoy helping others. This week, I hosted an online interview about my book, Late-Blooming Entrepreneurs: Eight Principles for Starting a Business After Age 40. The interview was for Yabbly, an “Ask Me Anything” site where readers can find interviewees of interest and ask them questions about, well, anything.
While interview hosts come from all walks of life, a large percentage of them are entrepreneurs, career changers or others connected to business. The interviews aren’t in real time but readers who ask questions usually get answers from the hosts within a few hours.
Here are five Yabbly interviews that readers of this blog might find especially interesting:
Other “Yabblers” include the cofounder of the Xbox and a top executive with Bing. They’re are on the site because they’re willing to share what they know. Why not ask them a few questions?
