Make Your Blog The Hub Of Your Business

“Just as a living room is the center of your home a blog is the hub of your business.”   This quote comes from: https://www.thewealthyboomers.com/top-10-blogging-mistakes/ a blog written by Mike Gaudreau.  I got to thinking about these 2 synonyms and how they compare.  Its pretty easy when you think about it.
