Twitter Link Roundup #244 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | November 21st, 2014

Today is Friday and I am off to pick up a new puppy! Yep, you heard me right, new addition to the family! Well enough about cute little balls of fluff – it’s time for our weekly roundup of the great links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  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, economics and other interesting stuff! I hope you enjoy!

The will to survive is an amazing and powerful thing. Speaking of new puppies… the young elephant in this video has a powerful instinct that all of us can admire! The lesson for me? Stay away from lion packs!
