beansBOOKS pages just launched

beansBooksBluescreenPicWe have just launched the beansBOOKS pages for the secBEANS network.

This online bookshop, powered by Amazon.co.uk, provides everyone who visits us with access to carefully chosen titles to help establish, develop or manage your community enterprise.

You can buy with confidence from Amazon, book distribution you can trust.

(We never see your personal or financial details…ever).

We have a regular monthly selection of useful resources, along with strong sections on being a female entrepreneur, small business finance and marketing ideas for smaller enterprises.

We also have sections on community business specifically, explaining how sustainable community enterprises can change the vitality and view of community landscapes – philosophically speaking.

Have a look at beansBOOKS – every purchase you complete using the links on our pages sends 5% of the transaction directly to SEC to help with our charitable activity.

The business bookshop – a service from the secBEANS network and its members.

Could you be a community entrepreneur?

pileofLearningPicStanford University in the USA is committed to putting learning online for free. Offering you access to great thinkers (…and doers), to help get your enterprise idea started.

In February 2012 Steve Blank, a serial starter of successful companies will, as part of his teaching duties at Stanford be launching an online Lean Start-up course.

You can register with your email address here.

Don’t be put off by the technical content of the course, or the fact that it comes from a prestigious university. Simple business ideas, clearly expressed, will be the source of your community enterprise success.

The course is free, built around a series of online videos, which you can watch at your leisure and supported by some interesting quizzes.

Why not do the course before you start your enterprise, or begin to expand your existing enterprise idea.

You never know what might happen. Good luck if you do try out something new.

The beans team.

(Watch out for the new secLEARNING web pages too – access to free knowledge, learning and skills from a variety of providers – coming soon).
