Twitter Link Roundup #312 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

I have often wished I could cram for exams (when in school) and important meetings by taking a very long nap. Unfortunately, that strategy never worked. But, it turns out that you can learn while you sleep!

A new study has found that the sleeping brain can learn new information during rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep, the point in your sleep cycle when you typically dream. The study focused on memories for acoustic patterns (which leaves hope that anyone can learn to play a musical instrument just by sleeping).

Now, we hope you enjoy another great set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our crowdspring Twitter account (and on Ross’s Twitter account). We regularly share our favorite posts on entrepreneurship, small business, marketing, logo design, web design, startups, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
