Twitter Link Roundup #269 – Impeccable Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | May 15th, 2015

As a small business owner I worry a great deal about productivity: how to achieve it, how to maximize it and how to maintain it. This video shows how easily your productivity, whether work or leisure related can quickly be undermined by those we love most. Who you ask? Our pets, of course! These furry, warm, sweet funny creatures will do their best to undermine our focus, our output and our very efficiency in life. Have a look and you’ll see just what I mean.

So are your pets well secured? Leashed? Crated? Alright, in that case you’re ready for our weekly Roundup! This week’s set of endearing links and mouthwatering articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account) is keyboard perfection! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
