Are you ready to grow?
Having a fixed mindset or a growth mindset on IQ determines how you respond to failure. This determines how well you learn and gain in performance and skill.

"good speakers for your sessions already have exposure—they aren’t relying on free speaking engagements. "
“All I want is not to be insulted by the people I'm serving by them paying me less than they pay their kids' piano teachers or their own hair stylists. They can say all the nice things they want when I'm finished. But when they hand me a paltry check, what are they really saying?

Great to see American Made companies growing. 
 
“Marketers at different companies and organizations have found ways to work together for years. They frequently call it by different names but fundamentally, it comes down to one or more marketers collaborating on marketing campaigns to reach additional segments and extend their reach. I like to call it Together Marketing.”, said +Kurt Uhlir, +sideqik co-founder. “The strategy lets each marketer reach a broader audience than they otherwise could alone.”

Pinterest sent out a warning email to influential pinners that they were going to “automatically remove all affiliate links, redirects and trackers on Pins.”

Pinterest's affiliate marketing surprise is not necessarily a welcome one. See who is targeted in the affiliate crackdown introduced last week.

Startups have a host of inherent risks, adequate funding being among them. But access to investors with money isn’t the only money concern startups should have. Finding the right investors for your startup is just as critical.

What is the single best place small business owners should invest or re-invest capital to get the biggest bang for the buck for their business? 

Great to be included in this article - 
"There are so many places a business owner could invest. However, it really comes down to one question that should drive the decision on where to invest or re-invest"
