This is definitely a big decision facing the young, new entrepreneurs of tomorrow- for so long going to college and earning a degree was the status quo and (for the most part) an essential step in being a successful business person. Now it seems as if having a degree isn't quite as vital in the minds of new entrepreneurs. What do you think?

I'm successful, and I have a lot of thoughts on the value of education. In the end, there are good things and bad.

Really enjoyed the flowchart/infographic in this article, "What Type of Entrepreneur Are You?" Apparently I am the napkin-writing-on, impact-measuring, not-work-for-the-man type entrepreneur! Definitely worth a look:

Are you more Zuckerberg or Branson? More innovator or opportunist? Take this fun flowchart quiz to find out.

I'm probably late to the party in posting about this(just logged on for the first time today), but have you guys seen this story?? Imagine taking a $30,000 pay hike overnight. I love #startup success stories:

A Seattle business owner is dropping his salary from about $1 million to $70,000 to help pay his workers a minimum of $70,000, too.

Great advice from +Peg Fitzpatrick. Which social media outlet do you find least responsive to your posts and activity? While some seems like hot spots, some never seemed to take off for me (I guess I couldn't personally get into Twitter :)
Peg Fitzpatrick originally shared:
 
Easy Ways to SUPERCHARGE Your Facebook Page
For social media managers and small businesses that manage multiple social platforms. Many tips will also work on your Google+ Page!

Your brand has most likely spent a considerable amount of time and money building your Facebook presence. With all the changes that Facebook has made, it’s become more challenging to do well on Facebook but it’s not impossible to stay in front of this group.

Facebook fans are a loyal group that consistently like, comment, and share their favorite pages content. Don’t give up on this targeted group of people interested in your brand, instead power up your Facebook presence to maximize your social media marketing efforts.

Story

Chief legal strategy officer and blogger of most things business, registered agent, nonprofit, and more
Introduction
I spent the early years of my life working at a locally owned sawmill and enjoyed living in the woods. My life experiences have crafted a unique real world perspective to the law and real world industries. The logging industry was effectively shut down from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); the mill closed, and the town basically died. NAFTA reinvented my career by paying for me to go to law school.

As the chief legal strategy officer, my role at Northwest guides our company and our clients through the vast bureaucracy we all deal with when running a business. I'm interested in helping people start and run successful businesses. I'm always learning and sharing. I have a special interest in nonprofits as well as registered agent services--have any questions? Ask away. 

I've recently begun authoring a blog housed on Northwest Registered Agent that covers a variety of topics concerning LLCs, incorporation, registered agents and registered agent services, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. It's all about solid, quality information and absolutely no filler:
