Natalia Wentworth's curator insight, July 24, 2013 5:39 PM

This is so unbelievably important, especially if you have employees! Even as a dedicated entrepreneur, though, I find myself struggling with distraction. I know it's even worse for people who don't have as much motivation to perform.

 

Plugins that shut off access to certain sites are helpful, but I often find I get the most done when I block my internet access completely (though that's not an option for every type of task).

Silvano Bonini's curator insight, July 16, 2013 10:11 AM

Ogni nuova Azienda deve essere riconoscibile con un logo ben studiato, per sviluppare una forte presenza sui social network, un logo accattivante incoraggia la condivisione di contenuti e di conseguenza la crescita della presenza nella comunità social.

Amanda Groover's curator insight, October 28, 2013 1:42 PM

Your brand awareness is important!  Everywhere your logo appears is an opportunity for your business to succeed or fail.  Great article on logos and social media.
