Launching and running your own business requires continuous self-education, as rising challenges demand creative solutions that may bump up against the limits of your knowledge and expertise. What's one new thing you've learned recently that has helped you solve a thorny problem or take your business to the next level?
I'm a web writer and social media specialist with more than 20 years in online publishing - a good chunk of which has been spent writing about business, entrepreneurship, and the scrappy innovators who took a chance and totally went for it. I've also been a small-business owner, publishing a popular local website geared toward kids and families (I'm a mom of two myself). I love stories about people who have found a way to play to their strengths and maybe uncover a few new ones in an effort to make a contribution and a difference.
