Twitter Link Roundup #291 – Loads of Good Stuff For Small Business, Startups, and Designers! Mike | October 16th, 2015

Last week I wrote about how much Chicagoans love our city. This week we had another great reason to do so. What, you ask? The CUBS, I answer! For the first time in their 100 year+ history, our dear Cubs won a playoff series right here at home, in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Does this come as a surprise to us? Well not if you are a fan of the the 1989 film, Back to the Future II  which, actually, I am. The screenwriters Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale called it (we hope) and you can watch it unfold for yourself, right here!

Go Cubs!!! Now catch your breath, calm your beating heart and relax. It’s time for you to enjoy another fabulous set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We do love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
