One entrepreneur says Facebook is a bottomless resource for first-time business owners. You just have to know where to look.

I now generate 95% of my consulting clients through Facebook groups. But even before I built up my business on the social network, I relied on a handful of Facebook groups to learn the ropes as a first-time entrepreneur. In fact, I quickly discovered that there's a group for everything. Whether it's focused on automated software for "solopreneurs" or on tips for building your first sales funnel, Facebook groups are a hugely helpful resource for new business owners who are just getting started.
That is, if you know where to look. Even a year ago, I had no real idea which Facebook groups to join. But since then, I've become much more savvy about hunting down groups that'll be useful to my business and skipping those that won't. And while it isn't comprehensive or an endorsement of individual groups by Fast Company, this list might prove a great starting point for new entrepreneurs who are looking to tap into the power of Facebook groups.

Screw the Nine to Five Community. Are you fed up with your nine-to-five job and ready to have a go as an entrepreneur? If so, this might be a great group to join first.

And the types of discussions that take place are all animated by the goal of giving two weeks’ notice and designing a new lifestyle instead.
