Twitter Link Roundup #169 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | March 8th, 2013

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The video above is a good look at the anxiety and dissatisfaction we feel when faced with limitless choice. Professor Renata Saleci explores whether too much choice actually hinders rather than helps us.
