Business and Marketing Article Roundup – September 21

It’s Friday! You made it through another week (although, as a small business owner the weeks really never end. But, congratulations anyway!) I’m bringing back an old friend – the article roundup. I’ve had the chance to read lots of great articles this week and I’m happy to share them with you.

First, I want to share a little more about the Young, Female Entrepreneur event I spoke at last week. I love this group and was honored to share the spotlight with the fabulous Nailah Blades to talk about the 5 Not-So-Sparkly Truths of Entrepreneurship. Erin, the YFELA hostess, wrote a great recap of the event with all the details and testimonials. If you missed the event, but would still like the PDF download of my talk, just head over to my new site – more details about this coming soon – and get on the VIP list.

About Donna Queza

I'm an optimist grounded in realism. That's what I love about working on the web -- the possibilities to be creative and distinctive are endless, but there's always a need for those reality-driven, data-fueld folks who make our dreams into realities. I like to think I hover somewhere in the middle - creative, quantifiable internet marketing solutions.
