Twitter Link Roundup #246 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | December 5th, 2014

Thanksgiving is past and Christmas, Hannukah, Kwaanza and New Years  are fast upon us, so what better way to prepare than with a taste of the toally bizarre. Yes, we do admit a fondness for Hasselhoff aroound the crowdSPRING office, and above is a video that simply could not escape our notice.

But enough about The Hoff – 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 do 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!
