    When I noticed the hashtag Grumpy Cat all over twitter I was wondering what the heck this new viral thing was. It’s actually a real live cat who made her owner rich. Well technically it was thanks to the owner’s brother who helped the cat go viral with a picture on reddit. How is this relevant to business. Totally so. It is why businesses from small to big cannot ignore the power of social media. We all secretly desire we could go viral. It’s big money.
