For those of you keeping track, there was no Something for the Weekend last week. Quite simply, I didn’t read or watch anything business-related online. I was away visiting family and friends and stayed offline as much as possible.
This week it’s the opposite…I have have been inundated with fabulous blog posts. Most of them are below but I will save a few for next week’s round-up. I’ve tried to group them together into obvious categories.
