It doesn’t matter if you prefer ultrabooks, tablets, or MacBooks, you’re not going anywhere without a smartphone. It is definitely a requirement for every entrepreneur. But a tech entrepreneur needs one because it's web enabled. The Samsung Galaxy S III is a great example. The latest in the Galaxy S series offers more than most smartphones. It has one of the most sophisticated mobile experiences to date. It’s light, thin and can fit right in the palm of any hand, plus the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system makes multitasking simple. You have the option to watch HD videos while emailing or texting, if you so choose.

ADD ALL YOUR SOCIAL PROFILES, ESPECIALLY FACEBOOK 

Everyone has a Klout score automatically generated from Twitter, which serves as the primary account. Up to 12 social media profiles can be linked to your account, with at least 6 more being added in the near future. Including more profiles creates a clearer picture of your brand’s total social impact, especially if your strongest platform is not Twitter.
