If You Can’t Explain What You Do in a Paragraph, You’ve Got a Problem

I so loved the title of Brad Feld’s post, that I just had to copy the title. This is an important one.  We live in a world of personal branding, quick online reputation checks and a lot of noise.  Authors, Entrepreneurs and job seekers get less and less time to explain themselves. This morning I was […]
