1. Here’s just a fabulous list of ten marketing lessons. The stories are about big companies but there are gems in there for little ones. And if you need a giggle just head to the quote in number 4 by P T Barnum.


2. Is there something that you’re trying to to turn into a habit?  Like a daily dose of marketing, say. Well here’s a great thought – create Energy Rituals. The phrase alone is enough to get me (thinking about) going! If you’ve got time read the whole article here. My favourite tip? “Reduce the challenge, but stay the course.”


3. Are you doing your work to the best of your ability or are you ‘phoning it in’. I love this little article and, hey, you don’t need to be a big movie star to have one of those ‘just enough’ days.


4. Ever thought about hiring a freelance designer but not known how to? Here’s a super-detailed article on what to think about.  I think one of the trickiest things to do is to hire a specialist – after all when you don’t know what to do you don’t know what to ask for. Agree?!

5. And finally, how to take a break from your work. You wouldn’t think you’d need ideas on how to spend a ten minute break, but then again, these are ways to make sure you return to work energized!
