Happy New Year 2016
As 2015 winds to a close, it's time to look at some simple strategies for improving various areas of your business operations.
Narcissistic handsome young man
You might’ve seen the latest news/study about the “Generation of Narcissists“ in your social media feed or favorite time-killer media site. It’s exactly what it sounds like: Due to too much coddling by parents, the trend of participation trophies, and basically every child being told they’re a unique snowflake, we might just have a whole generation of narcissists on...
failure in business, no promotion
Let’s say you or someone you know at a start-up wants a promotion. Entrepreneurs often stay motivated to grow in their careers, and promotions are part of growth in the workplace. There are differences between someone who simply wishes to be promoted and someone who is actively seeking a promotion. Many times, someone with more merit will...
The line between work and play is blurry in the tech world. So, as more young people flood into the city for work and look for friends, networking events have become a new sort of party circuit.

He did this one night when he started the Late Late Show by explaining, in a very succinct manner, why...
If you are active on Digg.com you receive a steady stream of email notifications telling you that people are now following your account, because they are “interested in what you are up to on Digg!” or some such. Well as if that steady stream of “fan following” wasn’t enough… it’s apparently started coming from the...
