Show notes:

Backup and Save–Don’t do as I say, do as I do. Save your work regularly and whatever you do, backup your files and store the backup media away in a location away from your computer. Mine Your Own Business is the Tacony Corporation blog.

Here’s something free from your favorite uncle, Uncle Sam. Good consumer advice available by mail or download.

Keith Burtis’ Magic Woodworks
Keith used the power of social media to sell out of his hand turned wooden bowls and earn enough money to pay off his fiancee’s engagement ring, just in time to pop the question at Podcamp Toronto.

Joseph Jaffee is a social media guru, and author of Join the Conversation.
