Twitter Link Roundup #251 – Cool ideas about Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | January 9th, 2015

Tragedy will not stop the creative mind nor the creative process.

It’s time once more for our weekly roundup! 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!
