Twitter Link Roundup #243 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | November 14th, 2014

Today is Friday – end of week and ready to relax; anyone gonna see Interstellar this weekend? Anyhow, it’s time for our weekly roundup of the cool, intriguing, and compelling links and articles 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!

Ever think about trekking in the Himalayas? Ever think about that bus ride to the trailhead? Check out the video above and (my advice?) think twice! (thanks @chrisdetmer)
