Twitter Link Roundup #242 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | November 7th, 2014

Here we go! Time once again for our 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!

We are so proud to be a part of the entrepreneurial and technology community in Chicago where we are based. Here’s a fantastic video that showcases one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Ours!
