First up this morning: 10 Crucial Business Questions To Ask Yourself.

According to this article some of the more crucial questions include: what problem does your business solve, how does your business generate income and which parts of your business are not profitable.
Next this morning: 5 Essential Steps to Building Community Online. If you know anything about me by now you know just how crazy I am about building online communities through social networking. This article caught my attention as soon as I saw the title mention building communities online. I can’t say that there was any phenomenal information in this article but if you are new to building online communities then this might be more applicable to you so give it a read and see what you think!
