To drum new business opportunities, now is the time to mine your social network, both online and offline.
Check out Meetup.com for meetups in your city. There are several entrepreneurial, tech, fashion and other meetups where you can connect offline with people in your industry.
One business social networking site that I recommend is Biznik. It has informative articles as well as you can contribute content. There are also local events in different cities.
To deal with the financial crisis, it is prudent to minimize expenses. There is a new website, BillShrink, that compare rates of both wireless plans and credit cards to find the best value. BillShrink offers saving based on either your current wireless carrier or your current credit card company.
