Tremendous Resource for Small Business

The Australian Business Podcast is full of actionable advice for business owners. The (free) Rask Business course that it is apart of is also excellent.

I’m a long time small business owner and it took me years to learn this stuff. A must listen if you are thinking about starting a business.
