Okay unless you have been under a rock this week, I am sure you have heard the noise about SOPA. I’m not going to repeat what SOPA is because mashable already did an excellent job of explaining SOPA here: http://mashable.com/2012/01/17/sopa-dangerous-opinion/. What will this mean for small business owners? Well if the sites that you use to get traffic from go down, how will you promote yourself? If SOPA passes, every file sharing site you can think of would have to shut down because they could be sued for facilitating copyright infringement. I know some of the supporters have pulled support away from this bill – http://mashable.com/2012/01/18/pipa-sopa-abandon-bill/. However, the main supporter still thinks this is a good idea (don’t know why) – http://mashable.com/2012/01/18/sopa-not-over/. So keep contacting your representatives. It looks like this battle is not quite over.
I found this article on twitter today while I was trying to figure out what to write about. This got my attention because there are so many self proclaimed gurus trying to get you to buy into their methods, it’s downright scary. This article gives you some ways to know if the person you are dealing with actually knows what she is talking about. Here’s the link to the article: http://darrenhardy.success.com/2010/08/dont-trust-experts/
