The Award For Best Tip Goes To: Greg McKeown, "Why We Brag About Being Busy"


This is a great article written by Harvard Business Review Blogger, Greg McKeown, about how we have been overvaluing the notion of doint it all, having it all, and acheiving it all.

Our favorite piece of advice from Greg:

 "Essentialists are people who are designing their lives around what is essential and eliminating everything else."


Our 2 Runners-Up Are:

Our favorite piece of advice from Marie:

"Get ready for one heck of a ride because you're on it whether you like it or not."




#2 Crowdfunding Growing At A Startling Rate

This Entrepreneur blog article summarizes a report that says that crowdfunding on a global basis is doubling at nearly 10 times the rate of Moore’s Law.

Our favorite:

"As someone experienced with the field, not only can I now find promising crowdfunding rising stars or rocketing campaigns far before they've become obvious to the world, but I can do so by mining the live-data (registration is required) on active campaigns on a daily or even hourly basis."
