When running your own business you constantly have all sorts of questions. Many of them… you don’t have the answer for. You can either ring some you know that might be able to point you in the right direction, you can do hours of research trying to find the answer or hiring the right professional… or you can simply use the right online tools, throw a good question there and expect dozens of qualified business professionals around the world answer it for you 🙂
Twitter has helped us many times but people only have 140 characters.

With the current economic climate these are paths that will make you connect and network with more business professionals and what’s best, get the best advise for free!

One of my answers got featured in a very important online publication in Norway and Sweden back in June. Also, a few weeks ago, a publisher in the South of Florida was so happy with my answer that she’s now putting together an e-book about LinkedIn and she’ll feature me there. Her e-books are downloaded by a few thousand people. Not bad. All this happened because I took the time to answer a question…
