The Business Owners Bulletin Week 26

Margo Masri

Hi everyone and welcome to week 26 of The Business Owner’s Bulletin. There is a ton of great content in this week’s round-up for business owners of all shapes and sizes. We are so excited to share it with you!

Let’s not forget about The Business Owner’s Network. That’s where we keep the party going all week long. We are working on ways to increase the value of the group even more in 2021 and we can’t wait to share them with you.

For those of you who are new, here is a brief history. Chloe Longstreet started publishing “The Business Owner’s Bulletin” in July as a way to curate some of the awesome content on LinkedIn that is devoted to helping small and medium-sized business owners. She dreamed of creating a space where busy professionals could come and spend a bit of time learning how to improve their business while also being entertained.

Since then, The Bulletin has grown into quite the newsletter, but no worries. Each of the featured posts and people is accompanied by a summary so you only have to click through to the ones that interest you. Additionally, everything included here is posted natively on LinkedIn so you never have to leave the platform.

We warmly welcome you to dig in and enjoy. Please remember to take a moment to like, comment, and share the content that you enjoy to support these incredible creators and celebrate all their hard work. And thank you for joining us this week.

People to Follow

After putting The Business Owner’s Bulletin together for several weeks, Chloe began to realize that some people just kept showing up with great content regularly. That’s when the “People to Follow” section was born. Each individual has a summary of their overall work as well as a brief of their most recent work. Please like and comment on the articles and posts you enjoy to further support these thought leaders.
