Twitter Link Roundup #223 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | May 16th, 2014

spacefelix

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 above image shows Felix Baumgarnter before his famous jump from a helium balloon in the stratosphere (where he set an altitude record for a manned balloon flight, parachute jump from the highest altitude, and greatest free fall velocity). You will find more examples of epic photos in the Other section below.
