What is your best advice to a budding entrepreneur?
I believe that one of the biggest challenges in starting out is the actual pulling of the trigger.  People always have tons of ideas and drive, but when it comes to sitting down and figuring out how to press forward they are gun shy.  My best advice would be to: 
1. Carry a notebook around with you and write down all thoughts that you have about your business.  It will become the "meat" for your business plan
2.  Give yourself a deadline to have the business up and moving

3.  Register your business as soon as you can.  This will make the business feel "real" to you and will motivate you to move forward.
What is a must-have site or resource all entrepreneurs should know and follow?
TWITTER!  Why do you think Google cache's tweets now?  It is important to be in the now.  Master Twitter and you will always be "in the know".
Quote or Book ‘to live by’

The Millionaire Zone:  7 Winning Steps to a Seven-Figure Fortune by:  Jennifer Oppenshaw is a great resource for people when they are starting out.  She breaks down how to use your connections to get to where you want.  Its not one of those vague books that promise to enlighten you, yet lacks specific instruction.

How to Swim With Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive:  How to Outsell, Outmanage, Outmotivate and Outnegotiate Your Competition by:  Havey MacKay is an old book with some very basic principals that are necessary for success.
