The start of a new year....You likely have a million ideas right now (Start a podcast! Spend more time on Twitter! Run a contest!), and while you can't do all the things, you should do some of the things. What will be tough is deciding which projects to take on, and where to spend your all-too-limited budget.
If you are looking at this time of year as your end/beginning, we invite you to take a bit of a perspective shift.

With many free options available, there’s a perfect fit for every type of business.
