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... 1 year 4 months
Upstart to Monetize Your Future PotentialWant to sell a future portion of your income to fund a business idea? Welcome to Upstart . [quote]After passing a rigorous background check, would-be entrepreneurs build a fundraising page with their business proposal and credentials laid out, just like an artist might raise funds on... 2 years 4 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... 2 years 4 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 years 5 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... 2 years 5 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,... 2 years 5 months
Would You Cancel Your Home Internet Service? Somewhat interesting article in the journal regarding cutting internet service in favor of using their wireless connections on their smartphones combined with wireless hot spots in places like starbucks. [quote]For all the fuss over Americans dropping their cable subscriptions in favor of... 2 years 6 months
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... 2 years 6 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.... 2 years 6 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... 2 years 6 months

These are all very useful. Thanks for posting...These are all very useful. Thanks for posting these. 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 week 2 days
Why not do this? Your stock price has had a...Why not do this? 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... 1 week 2 days
Golf can quickly ruin your budget as rounds add...Golf can quickly ruin your budget as rounds add up especially if you play at decent courses and once/twice a week. That's when memberships suddenly don't seem as expensive. I'd also save an incredible amount of money if I didn't go out on weekends and stayed local rather than visit friends.. but... 2 weeks 4 days
I'm not really sure how this helps matters at all...I'm not really sure how this helps matters at all. If you now have direct promotes, you've just added a layer of associates and cost that you didn't have before. I'd suspect the top talent, who you are so concerned about losing, aren't going to suddenly say, "Yippee! Another 50 to 100k" since where... 3 weeks 1 day
To add to your point, I think that as it grows...To add to your point, I think that as it grows rapidly it becomes harder and harder for regulators to just shut it down. That, to me, is why people are willing to funnel all kinds of money into it and it's what is driving the immense value. It's going to entirely upend an industry and the more... 3 weeks 4 days
Frankly, watching 'The Smartest Guys in the Room...Frankly, watching 'The Smartest Guys in the Room' is better than any possible dramatized movie they could come up with about Enron. 3 weeks 4 days
In regards to security... if people haven't...In regards to security... if people haven't figured out yet that everything they do on a computer is going to be monitored, I can't help them. Period. End of story. If you are really concerned with company communications being tracked, build your own internal system that is housed entirely on site... 2 months 2 weeks

You need to get out there and grind your way to a job. Since you have some experience I would leverage those networks to try and get your foot... 2 months 4 weeks

I could be wrong though, I have no idea what the breakdown of the watch sales are. I've seen a few people with them but generally I think the real value is in the establishing the category and then... 3 months 2 days
