From Around the Web

A selection of posts that I came across from around the web this week that I wanted to share with you. Let me know what you think in the comments below and any interesting articles you came across.

Social Media

  • Don’t believe the hype from the ‘social media snake-oil salesmen’. Here are SEVEN ways your small business can generate revenue with social media RIGHT now. Go read it (but make sure to come back!)
  • Oh look! Facebook has done it again. A new button and another way for you to share with your friends.

Personal Development

  • “Where do you want to end up?” Start from the end and work backwards says Fabrice in his thought-provoking post-Pick your next job.
  • On Patience & Persistence-I stumbled across the Skool of Life a few weeks back and really love what I’ve been reading. In his latest post, Sirinivas talks about his non-linear path to accomplishment and how he went from being a digital baby 2 years ago to now a Blogworld speaker. Patience & persistence is key!

Lastly, some tips from Mars Dorian on how to be different online.  Go be epic!

    Rats! The words in the graphic are too small for me to really read them, even when I enlarged it. I want the details on those prices!

    Thanks for including the Facebook send button post. I really appreciate that and hope that you have a fantastic weekend!
