No, this isn't a personal finance blog post. You can find that type of info HERE.
This post is about giving credit as opposed to using a card.
When you're getting something off the ground, you are usually scarce on resources. There is never enough money to pay your people, enough time to get things done, or enough connections to move things forward. In these instances, much like someone who uses a credit card to pay for things and then pay them off later, the only way we can thank the people who help us is to give them credit for their work.
The main difference is that unlike a card, credit that you give to others has no limit. You can say as much or as little as you like about the people who you work with and often it has a significant impact on them.
So how do I feel about it?
I think that you want to give credit where credit is due as often as you can. I think that if people work hard for you, they should always be recognized for that work. This is especially true if you are in a leadership position.
So here's something I'd like you to try today:
Give those who are working with you or for you credit. You can do it via Twitter or Facebook or any other public platform you like, but let the world know how much they mean to you.

Thanks to @RittOnTwitt for being a beyond amazing summer intern #Creditisdue
Now you give it a shot.
Every day tons of people do a ton of work and receive no credit. Let's not let today be one of those days.
