Weekly Small Business Roundup

This week’s Small Business Roundup includes my recap of International Freelancers Day, Facebook changes, and how to work with a web designer/developer.

International Freelancers Day 2011 Recap – My recap of today’s International Freelancers Day presentations. It’s hard to beat free, especially when you get good information out of it.

4 Secrets Happy Entrepreneurs Know – Or, how to run your company and not go insane. These 4 secrets are so very true.

Sleep = Productivity – I’ve talked about the power of sleep and napping here before. I’m a huge fan because sleep fixes things. It can help you solve problems. It can wipe out stress. It can give you distance and perspective. It can keep you healthy. It can be like a huge reset button. And so much more. What can you do next week to get a little more sleep each night?

Facebook wants to be big among small businesses – Facebook is going to give away free $50 advertising credits to small businesses. It might not go very far but it might be enough to make a difference. Can’t hurt to try, right?

How To Work With A Website Designer – This is one of the best articles I’ve read on hiring and working with a web designer/developer. The author really nails every point and I could not agree more.

“The bottom line is that unless you are that rare creature who possesses an extremely good sense of design combined with a highly evolved programming prowess — you should not be creating your own website.”

Five things to know about the new Facebook – If you’re on Facebook you saw the big changes they released this week and probably had an opinion about it. Whether you like the changes or not, it’s just the first in a long line of changes announced yesterday. If you really, really, really hate the changes to the news feed, here’s how to change it back: How to restore Facebook’s Most Recent news feed.
