So much so, the cost of unhappy, unengaged employees in the workforce is up to $300 billion in the U.S. annually. This is not a…
I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.

Companies with a diverse workforce perform better. A 2009 study by McKinsey shows a connection between gender diversity and financial performance of a company: a company in which the management is gender diverse (more than 30% women in top management of the company), for example, had a 53 % better EBIT margin. So far so good.
So how do you get a more diverse workforce? Well, you probably already know it: it all depends on fair personnel selection. Fairness…Continue

I thought about this a while, and came up with a rebuttal of sorts:
"Please excuse me for being a middleman while I sell you down-river, to someone important, then..."
The very word "entrepreneur" is at…Continue
