This Week In Review  

This week's top stories are about: Using LinkedIn correctly and not being a spammer & two stories on how to recruit franchises effectively.  

This was a bit of an embarrassing week - since both Mike and Joe took all 3 of the top stories.  

I promise to write about strategy & game theory next week & Joe promises not to write at all.  

That should give the competition the edge they need!
