Inspired by Ming-Zhu’s talk and her recommended reading list, Jennifer has posted her helpful branding & marketing-related reading list to her blog… Thanks Jennifer!
If you have any must-read titles or blogs, please add them in the comments. I’m currently enjoying Etsy’s Quit Your Day Job interviews, and thanks to MZ’s suggestion, The 99%! I’m sure there are many more out there so please share the link-love.

…Another major resource I use is The Australian Taxation Office – they have some fantastic booklets specifically on bookeeping that are great for basic, simple-as-pie understanding of the kinds of records that need to be kept and analysed. Call them and order as many booklets as you think would be useful – their range of resources is available at their website.”
Many thanks, Ms Hii, for your generosity!
