It might seem overwhelming to add another social media or news site to your lineup, but understanding the current political, economic, and social climate should come from a variety of sources. One source to consider, if you haven’t already, is Reddit, the “front page of the internet.” There are subreddits for everything from cute puppies to home improvement, but I also especially like the /r/smallbusiness/ subreddits. Users hop on to discuss using Quickbooks, POS systems, consulting, taxes, and everything else you might want to know about running a business. Real business owners talk with their peers all around the world about practical logistics and philosophical approaches to management. Therefore, I would highly recommend creating a Reddit account and subscribing to /r/smallbusiness/, because I can guarantee you’ll learn a lot.
