Innovation right here. It’s not about inventing the wheel, but adapting from other industries and fitting it to yours. Excited to see how this Netflix-like innovation pays off in the long run.
Failure (or just not perfection) is part of the process. Facing adversity young is key to success moving forward. I was never a straight A student (or even close) and that taught me so many of the lessons I needed to succeed today.
It’s all out there anyway. We’re already stuck in the system. Getting out isn’t realistic, so the question is: how do we live and learn with it?
Walmart, regardless of what you think about it’s policies, has been great about hiring people who might have a difficult time getting hired elsewhere. And now, they’re hiring robots. It is the future though.
Genius marketing and strategy here. Not too often we see a “first of it’s kind” anymore.
I saw a Prudential billboard recently that said “They say 1 in 3 won’t retire. They haven’t met you.” The working population is aging, and retirement is becoming a choice - one not taken as often. Prudential’s campaign ignored that fact, but I’m glad this article highlighted it.
I’d argue that it’s not as cool to be the entrepreneur, but the culture of a start-up and working for a successful entrepreneur remains an enticing option for millennials who don’t want to consult or work in a cubicle.
Businesses don’t have a choice but to stand for something anymore. People buy based on who you are, but also who you support. Toms knows their audience, and knows they can do this without losing that core base. Smart move
“Consolidation in digital media is something that is going to happen.” I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s about them being the disruptor, rather than being disrupted. They’re at the tipping point right now, and this decision will send them one way or another.
Always been a fan of the fun job titles. The old fashioned ones promote hierarchies and separation among employees.
