Twitter Link Roundup #241 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | October 31st, 2014

People. Are you ready? It’s time for another weekly roundup of the articles, videos, posts and quips that we shared with you over the past week on our very own crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We like to talk about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and various random stuff! Enjoy!

Be sure to watch the video above; great leadership is about so many things, but nothing that happened this week serves as a better example of the impact a great leader can have on their own company and the world around us. Here’s to Tim!
