Twitter Link Roundup #253 – Wonderful resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | January 23rd, 2015

The Super Bowl is one week away and boy are we excited! Not so much abut the game, or the ads, or the half-time spectacle, but rather for the inevitable swipes, jokes, and satire that will follow. Get warmed up with this video and learn what the players, coaches, and officials are really saying down there on the field!

So… read my lips: 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!
