5% of People Need to Earn over $200,000 a Year to...Good to know WSO firmly represents that 5% (Granted, not sure how many monkeys on here are actually on CareerBuilder). @"AndyLouis" This had to be a poll on here at one point, right? It always amuses how different industries breed different levels of income as 'successful', even though it's been... 43 1 year 9 months

Is Allegiant Air the Future for Airlines?Today might just be as un-productive as the day after the Super Bowl. My office is a ghost town, and that is putting it mildly. Luckily, first day of NHL free agency is providing some entertainment. Anyway, as yields soar into the stratosphere again today airlines are again getting lambasted over... 3 2 years 9 months
Sean Parker Biting the Hand that FeedsIt's Friday. I'm struggling to find anything that interests me enough to post about, certainly not anything else about Hernandez... god knows there has been enough media coverage forever on that one. So I settled on a few interesting quips from Sean Parker regarding the current state of social... 2 2 years 10 months
When Will the Chinese Learn? Apparently, someone forgot to pass along the message to the Chinese that the most important part of government bond auctions is making sure they can't fail. Bond auctions should function more like Storage wars, where there is always a buyer, than what happened in China. Here's the story out of... 3 2 years 10 months
Looking Through the PRISMIf you haven't heard some leaked NSA documents show that they have been getting direct access to large tech companies servers to gather data on their customers i.e. citizens of the united states and, well, everywhere for that matter. Here's one story for you. On it's face i want to scream,... 47 2 years 10 months
Would You Cancel Your Home Internet Service?

ESPN and the Business of Sports Sports is a fascinating business to me. It is truly amazing how quickly sports have grown into billion dollar franchises with top end players making up to $30 million a year. Baffling. On top of it, the numbers for broadcasting rights keep climbing right along with them and frankly seem to be... 14 2 years 11 months
Counterfeit Condoms From China... Who Would Have...Look, I can understand counterfeiting Gucchi or Prada stuff and even electronics like Iphones. But Condoms... Really?? That is just... absolutely absurd. [quote]The police did not specify whether the condoms seized in the raid were faulty. Another recent case, however, gives reason to worry.... 20 2 years 11 months
Private Equity Taking Over the Housing MarketThis doesn't seem like it should end well. Large amounts of institutional money coming into the housing market, pushing prices up. Blackstone is apparently getting into it in a big way. [quote]Our bet right now is the scale of the opportunity is very big, and the pricing seems quite compelling... 23 2 years 12 months

Great Post. One note for people reading number 5...Great Post. One note for people reading number 5, a big personality does not mean that you need to be boisterous, loud, obnoxious and way over the top thinking that you are impressing people. Don't try too hard. Generally, if you are able to do 1-4, you end up being thought of as memorable without... 10 2 hours 48 min

Memorizing all these specialized GAAP and IFRS rules when, in reality, they do whatever they want and come up with all kinds of reporting measures and justifications. Honestly, I think this is why so many of... 10 5 hours 9 min
I think you underestimate how many people...I think you underestimate how many people struggle with personal dynamics and interaction. Candidly, I think it is a skill that is on the decline. There are entire highly ranked podcasts nowadays that are built around, "Here's how you talk to people. Here's how you talk to a girl." I think that if... 24 1 week 1 day

I'm working on that, and if you aren't I encourage you to do so as well. 2. Take a vacation and/or just quit. Sometimes, and not always, the best way to... 23 4 weeks 1 day
There are no thoughts, discussions or other...There are no thoughts, discussions or other opinions. Go talk to your boss, let him know you are interested in the opportunity and plan to apply. Imagine what will happen when your boss gets blindsided by someone calling to get an opinion on you? That's a quick way to torpedo the opportunity before... 13 1 month 1 week
Here's what you do. Put your actual GPA. Period....Here's what you do. Put your actual GPA. Period. Just put it. If you feel the need to round it, do it in the mathematically acceptable way and call it a day. You are candidly wasting your time worrying about whether 'lying' or omitting it will serve you better. Neither will. Take your time and... 36 3 months 5 days

I think that if you start out with a suit that fits you well (see: tailored or altered) your already above 90% of people. Hell, probably 95% from what I've seen. If you... 157 3 months 5 days

To go along with your first point, please don't put what you are going to say on your power point slides. It's painful to watch and frankly it doesn't serve you or the audience. At best, it creates a crutch that you lean on and at worst it is... 1 5 months 1 week

Your stock price has had a pretty good run up over the last 2 years, you are paying little in cash and you get even greater scale in large markets. Plus, as you noted, it increases their ability to consolidate rewards programs and attract more business travelers. As far as... 8 5 months 1 week
