‘Be Brave and Follow Your Dreams.’ That’s the motto of the youth today. But being brave doesn’t mean going in search of trouble, or that’s what The Lion King has taught me at least. Let’s say you want to be an Entrepreneur but you don’t know how to proceed. How about gaining a little knowledge about entrepreneurship and then proceeding? After all, there are tons of successful ones. Here are 8 twitter handles you have to follow as an entrepreneur-
8. James Altucher
Failure is the stepping stone to success and James Altucher is not in the least bothered by his list of failures; which is probably why he’s so successful. He serves up a daily dose of brutal honesty and simple success stories along with motivational speeches for soon to be entrepreneurs in what he calls “the daily practices”, which he draws from his personal examples. He has a list of book titles under his name, not to mention a slew of successful investment companies. His words are blunt and to the point, which is a refreshing breeze compared to all the deceit people try to throw our way on a daily basis.
Twitter Handle: @jaltucher
7. Jack Dorsey
You know what’s more impressive than the 250 million users on Twitter? Being able to connect with its creator, that’s what. Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter and founder of Square, is a highly successful entrepreneur who looks at innovating on a daily basis. You can reach him and ask him whatever you like on his Twitter account, and although he may not be able to answer all your questions, you’ll get exposure to one of the most innovative minds to have been born in the 20th century.

6. Tim Ferriss
What makes Tim Ferriss worth following is his way of living. This tech, design and life guru devotes himself to bringing you the best of what’s to follow on a daily basis.

If you’re looking for something beyond just the scope of your narrow minded business idea, Tim Ferriss is worth a look into.

5. Jillian Michaels
Businesses don’t always have to be run from huge buildings and massive number of clients, employees and suits. A business is a business as long as an idea works, and that’s what Jillian Michaels is, a hardcore personal trainer and fitness guru. Her twitter handle is flooded with tons of motivational tweets. She posts frequently and replies to personal message as well. Her quotes and workout techniques are designed to get you up and moving. She even provides life lessons and expects you to fight for what you believe in, yourself. She’s definitely a must follow.
