So what words of wisdom helped me run my small business this week? Thoughts on the fiscal cliff, the president’s tweetchat and of course, the holidays. Here’s a few I liked.
@tedalexandro My notebook says "College Ruled." Bit of an overstatement.
@robdelaney Kickstarter campaigns make me think “Good for you; power to the people!” & “Have you NO shame?” at the exact same time.
@thesulk "Eh, I'm runnin' outta money there, Normy." (Fiscal Cliff Clavin)
@dmscott Inbound marketing success comes from acting like a publisher, not an advertiser.
@johnhawkinsrwn My thoughts on the fiscal cliff: A good deal is better than no deal, but no deal is better than a bad deal.
@johnhawkinsrwn It's possible to justify working insane hours to yourself when you're succeeding, but not if you're failing.
@larry_kudlow Once again I ask, why is everybody talking about higher taxes in the fiscal cliff story instead of lower spending? It's a spending problem.
@cstross I use the word “computer” to indicate a useful work platform, not a toy/ebook reader/content browser.
@dennis_crystal An idea is just an #idea ...when it makes an #impact on an organisation ..that's #innovation@BarackObama Why not just raise taxes on the top tax bracket (income > $388,350) instead of income > $250,000? #FiscalCliff#economy

@Shama I heard of a new phenomenon today. Low Battery Anxiety - feeling anxious about your draining battery. Do you suffer from this?
@JenKirkman I hope Ashton Kutcher goes so method act-y in his role as Steve Jobs that he invents a way to make Siri more functional.
@profsufi we have TON of high quality evidence on effects of fiscal stimulus that rely on careful counter-factual estimation, not silly simple graphs
@justinwolfers I was about to look up this morning's ADP report, but fortunately, just in the nick of time, I remembered I don't care.
@econjared Jeez...If the Wizards can beat the Heat, surely the rest of us can resolve the fiscal cliff.
@jimcramer Can GOP reps actually violate the No-Tax pledge and get away with it? The futures say yes
@timhawkinscomic Call Me Maybe nominated for song of the year. Fiscal cliff one day, musical cliff the next.
@birbigs Grover Norquist is making up for a lifetime of being mocked for his name.
@Nouriel Bearish ECB forecasts for 2013- EZ recession & below target inflation - imply a Dovish ECB in 2013. So Scrooge pospones Xmas gifts to Easter
Hey politicians, instead of "my way or the highway," how about "let's travel TOGETHER!!!" #thinkaboutit
@TheNardvark If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of this meeting.

@JenKirkman If meeting Zeppelin last week doesn't inspire Obama to start his State of the Union with: "This year, America got the Led out," I'll be
@Bill_Gross "Why do we exist & why should anyone care?" Key question every #startup should ask according to #LeanStartup @nicolatillin "he uses statistics like a drunk uses lamp-posts - for support rather than illumination" @CMBernard3 Beware of social media buttons that ask you to link with your other networks - this is not always a good thing! #SMM #marketing @ValaAfshar "we have Twitter, we're a social business" is like "we have an oven mitt, we're a gourmet restaurant" @Chande in 2012, people are sending sales emails like: learn #seo in 2 days. yes. and pigs fly @StuartAllenFCMIThe most important person in a businesses organisational chart is the CUSTOMER! Do they feature in yours? #bizitalk #business #custserv @MooreWhen it comes to amazing support it takes these qualities in this order: 1) personality 2) empathy 3) accuracy 4) speed #custserv
