Ezine Articles for Authors

I had to include an article directory in
this compilation simply because of the huge amount of material

you‟ll find on any one of these sites. For me, the best article

directory by far is Ezine Articles, run by Christopher Knight.

This site is mind-bogglingly massive. Here are a couple of
statistics. It has over 100,000 articles (and probably growing all
the time). And over 25,000 authors (also probably growing all
the time).

What makes Ezine Articles the best of a big bunch is that it

doesn‟t just allow anyone to stick any article on its site. It
reviews everything that it archives which means you‟ll get only
good stuff. I‟ve spent many a valuable hour or two here and

come away with ideas that would make my head burst.

In the business section, there are all the categories you could
wish for if you are looking to extend or update your knowledge,
including: Customer Service, Change Management,
Teambuilding, Presentation, Negotiation, Communication, and
Top 10 Tips. In the Self-Improvement section, you‟ll find
Leadership, Time Management, Coaching, Goal Setting,
Motivation, and Creativity. The list just goes on and on.

See you in a couple of hours‟ time!

Summary of Free Resources:

massive article directory.

34. Fast Company

How Smart People Work

Fast Company is one of the
original business information
websites. I first came across it many years ago when the

Internet was still relatively small and it‟s nice to report that it‟s

still going strong.

Essentially, of course, Fast Company is a monthly business print
magazine that you can subscribe to. But on the site you can see
the current edition for free and read selected articles. You can

also browse their massive archive of past copies. But that‟s

nowhere near all they do.

For a start, you can subscribe to some very useful newsletters.
The one I like most is Fast Take, which is a weekly roundup from
the Web. For those of us too busy to spend every day surfing.

Then, there‟s the Fast 50 which are 50 portraits of businesses

that are writing the history of the future; a directory of
businesses in your area (States only unfortunately); and a series

of slide shows which includes: Six Jobs That Won‟t Exist in 2016
(I‟m OK, mine‟s not there) and Top 10 Bosses From Hell.

All in all, a fast feast.

Summary of Free Resources:

35. Fenman

Your One-Stop Shop For All Your
Training Needs

Fenman is a UK company with a
long and successful record of creating training resources for
management and personal development. They are now a
formidable presence on the Web.

The beauty of this site is that you can access all Fenman‟s offline
products and at the same time instantly download free samples.

There‟s so much information that if you downloaded everything
that‟s available, you‟d have a huge library of valuable material.

As an example, this is what I did. I clicked on just one of their 25
categories, Recruitment, Selection and Induction. That took me
to a page with 8 big products of which I was able to download
samples from 4. As a result I had free access to over 70 pages of
really excellent material including an exercise on Tackling
Bullying, How to run an Assessment Centre, an Induction Toolkit,
and an exercise on identifying employees with talent, called
Danger – Talent Zombies!

Thank you, Fenman!

Summary of Free Resources:

huge range of training products with many free samples.
