This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 4/20

In planning your calendar this week, please be sure to leave time to vote in Tuesday's primary election. No excuses!

This is a busy week for networking, with events for the Third Annual Entrepreneurship Week and all sorts of other events exploring new tech entrepreneurs, the business use of social media, and the power of carrots. There are several events that are pretty far from Philadelphia, but the content was such that I thought them worth including.

I'm also speaking twice this week. First on Tuesday at the Delaware Valley Law Firm Marketing Group, discussing how lawyers and law firms can best make use of LinkedIn and other social media sites to market themselves. Then on Thursday, Todd Cohen and I reprise our discussion on the Strategic Relationship between Sales and Marketing at the Drexel University for the Professional Selling class. We had a lot of fun last time.

All your votes are belong to Obama
