I just started to receive Make magazine. It`s great. For an inventor, this is great inspiration.I also subscribe to Business 2.0 and Forbes. And I check out the Investor`s Business Daily every chance I get.What magazines do you all think are can`t-do-withouts for entrepreneurs, small biz owners, inventors, etc.?

    I like entrepreneur.com and pinkmagazine.com for women (I really wish they chose a different name).  I come across many biz mags like these at my day job so I don`t subscribe.  For me, the opportunity to `speak` with people and get feedback is very important at this stage in my startup so SUN is my number one choice - Ladies Who Launch (.com) use to have a forum on their site but no more which is too bad, I thought it was one of their best aspects.

    I also love Entrepreneur and Fortune Small Business.  Great topics, ideas and inspiration in both. 
    Helen, you mentioned LWL...I joined a while back and noticed that their fourms were not very active which was disappointing to me as well because it could have been a great aspect.  Along that line though, there`s another forum that might interest you that you should check out if you haven`t already heard of it.  It`s theswitchboards.com, their tagline - Connecting Creative Women in Business.  The forum is very active and is a virtual goldmine for women owned creative businesses looking for tips and support.

    Thanks JIOT - I will definitely check them out.
    LWL forums were a bit bare but I felt it had a lot to do with them not being as well known at that point - I still like reading their Featured Ladies section to gain insight and motivation.

    I like Crain`s New York. It gives a lot of information on trends throughout many industries. They sometimes list trade shows and events. I know that they have other location based issues too.

    Fortune Small Business and Fast Company are my favorite generic business magazines.  I tend to check out Business Week`s web presence on a regular basis.  My favorite design industry business publication is HOW Magazine (I`m a bit biased as I am on the magazine`s Editorial Advisory Board)- J.

    We have a local (Richmond, VA) business magazine called WORK Magazine that is doing real well. We also recently started a business resource center, The Work Factory, as an outgrowth of the magazine. We`re hoping the branding will be complementary.

    have any of you picked up a copy of "Worthwhile Magazine"?
    it mixes in some entrepreneurial "i did it myself" stuff with other lifestyle stuff. pretty cool concept and pretty good execution.

    if you visit eBaY, there are college students selling mags. - i got thirteen editions for $10/3 yrs. / another trick is join a catholic college library(or visit), they have all kinds of trade journals and periodicals on newstand / see which you like. I found some interesting ones besides the popular kinds / and `Time` etc. even offers great articles on biz from time-to-time...those popular biz ones are sometimes not better choices!!
