Happy Friday C615! Here’s a Friday Five round-up filled with some inspirational tips to end this work week on a high note!

2) Buffer studied over 16 million social media posts and learned a few surprising lessons about posting schedule frequencies, brand awareness and other tips to help up your social media game!

3) Do you have a scattered brain with lots of ideas constantly colliding with one another? Research shows that our disorganized thoughts actually lead to increased creativity.
