8 People That Student Entrepreneurs Should Follow on Twitter

As a student entrepreneur or student in general using Twitter, there are a few people that I think you should definitely be following and reading their tweets, to pick up great bits of advice or to be able to read articles that they may share. Here they are.

  1. Ramit Sethi@ramit of IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com and PBWiki.com – Ramit is a personal finance guru and shares lots of tips for saving your money, reworking your finances, and negotiating your bills. Following his site and twitter updates is a huge benefit for when you are out of school and into the “real world” with lots of bills to pay!
  2. Guy Kawasaki@guykawasaki of Alltop and HolyKaw.com – Guy is currently recognized as the creater of AllTop.com but is probably better know as the person who coined the word ‘evangilist’ within a company while at Apple. He is also the author of many top selling books and writes for many different blogs and websites about technology, entrepreneurship, and more.
  3. Venutre Hacks@venturehacks of Venturehacks.com – great site and twitter to follow for content relating to venture capital, entrepreneurship, and business.

  7. Ian Fernando@ianternet of IanFernando.com – Ian is an “out of the box” affiliate marketing and PPC wiz.

    Chris thanks for including me in the list.

    I’d also suggest @GaryVee, @ducttape and @MarketingProfs

    Looking forward to seeing you all on Twitter!

      Thanks for the comments guys! It is definitely hard to keep a list small like this, so I’m going to be expanding on it with some more people to follow, including @garyvee and others.

    My site just started utilizing Twitter and has seen the opportunities associated with it, very nice. It’s kind of hard to gasp the concept and advantages of Twitter at first (as an individual) but once you test it out, and see your Follower count pickup, you will be hapily impressed with the results.

    Great post, I agree. I think a great addition that might help others would be learning how to outsource. It’s really helped my business. I found a free outsourcing mini coarse and I learned a lot from it. It’s amazing what you can do when you can hire someone for $4 per hour to help you run your business.
