Twitter Link Roundup #294 – Terrific Reads For Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers and Designers! Ross | January 22nd, 2016

When it comes to business, just as in our personal lives, we tend to quickly stereotype people when we meet them. Often, these stereotypes often get in the way of business and personal relationships. Here’s a humorous and unfortunately, not entirely untrue look at what one might see if they put on “racist’ eyeglasses.

The lesson here? Be open minded when you meet new people and suppress your urge to stereotype everyone you meet.

Now it’s time for you to enjoy another great set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our crowdSPRING Twitter account (and on my Twitter account). We regularly share our favorite posts on entrepreneurship, small business, marketing, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
