  1. Very cool list! I love learning about new writers. As one myself, I am always seeking out new tips and tricks to becoming a more established writer and blogger. Maybe one day I will make this list! Thanks for sharing I enjoyed the read.

  2. I really enjoyed Ashley Zeckman’s article on customers. People tend to forget how to care and nurture their customer relationships which often results in a loss in business. Being personal, approachable, and eager to listen and learn are such great tools any business man or woman needs in their back pocket!

  3. Since I am in the content marketing business. This list has been very helpful to me. Each of these articles is well worth the read, in fact, I enjoy this feature on your blog! Keep up the good work!
