Twitter Link Roundup #252 – Sweet resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | January 16th, 2015

Open office plans work for many small companies but some teams just do not function well no matter what the office looks like. Here is one company (and one worker) that struggles with the issues common to all of us. Just with some unique personality twists – enjoy!

But enough about office life – it’s time 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!
