I just returned from my first extended blogging vacation, and after taking the last 10 days to recharge my batteries I can earnestly state that I’m glad to be back. In my first post I thought I’d offer you a gift by providing a list of some of my favorite links. You can bookmark this post, and by adding this page to your favorites you will have a single location that will serve as a valuable list of resources which should be of interest to any CEO or entrepreneur. I hope you find this helpful
