Twitter Link Roundup #303 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

Growing up, my parents always taught me that showing initiative is one of the best ways to achieve success – at work, or in any area of your life. Understanding that you have to take a risk – ask questions, make a recommendation, pitch an idea – is the first step in becoming someone that influences their surroundings, and doesn’t simply sit back in the safe zone watching things happen. If you’re looking to further your goals and extend your reach in your life, start practicing being more proactive by engaging with the world around you. Start initiating change, and watch as the world starts changing with you.
