[Twitter] The 3 Dimension's of Great Business Ideas
BUT people say.if I share ideas on social media then they won't want to use me.well if you only know enough for a 140 characters on Twitter or a couple of paragraphs in a starting a blog and blog posting consistently.then you are in trouble!! Too often people feel as though they need to protect ideas. They feel those ideas give them control. As I always say it is not the idea's that give you control, it is the sharing of idea's that give you control. Imagine if Einstein had kept all his ideas to himself? It is the sharing that brings the ideas to life.
