    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.

    Why your business should use social media!
    
    We are connected 24/7 and social media has become an integral part of our life. It is changing how we communicate with each other and share information. We connect on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Even as consumers we are discussing buying decisions, sharing experiences and directly getting in contact with brands, products and services online. 
    
    Businesses and marketers need to understand this shift and find the right channels to open a dialogue with their target audiences.  Regardless of industry, consumers flock to social media to inform themselves, often with an actual intend of buying. They are no longer passive consumers who get besieged with newsletters, emails, banners, print and television ads, but now are actively searching information and reviews online to make an informed buying decision. 
    
    Social media should be part of the overall marketing efforts no matter if you are a B2C or B2B company. It should be viewed as an additional element of an integrated marketing campaign, which can provide a great opportunity to increase awareness, generate buzz, customer loyalty and acquire potential new customers.
