I recently began compiling lists of some of the best personal and corporate blogs on growth hacking and lean marketing. What I forgot to include in those lists are the networks and resource sites in the growth marketing community where ideas are shared, great posts are passed around, questions are answered and where folks chat about the secrets to their success growing start-ups.
