Last week, Donald Trump officially clinched the Republican nomination for President at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. While Trump and his family were at the convention, a story was making the rounds on social media, eventually landing in my inbox. The shocking allegations? Trump and two of his children were facing tax evasion charges
It’s a pretty sensational story and given the amount of attention heaped upon Trump’s reluctance to disclose his tax returns, (you can read my take on that here), it definitely attracted attention. There’s just one problem: it’s not true.
What is true is that Trump is involved in a civil tax fraud case. But his involvement, and that of two of his children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, is this: they are named as material witnesses in a case focusing on a man named Felix Sater (more about Sater in a moment).
You finish work at 6 pm, go to bed at 12 midnight.
Within these six hours, how do you spend them?
In fact, the activities you do between 6 am and 12 midnight,
the importance of it is beyond your imagination. Too many people believe that,
your career is determined by the 8 hours of hard work and effort you put at work,
and your future and career progression depend on the boss and the company.
But the reality is that for most people, this thing, you are on your own…..Read on…
Kearns was thrust into full-time childcare duties, after his wife, Sarah, fell sick with liver failure.
“Hold onto your bootlaces because I’m about to take you on a ride that could only be likened to a backwards 100 mph roller coaster that takes you through waterfalls of vomit, shit and lots of tears,” he wrote on Sunday. “And once you’re finished with yours you will move onto the children’s.”
Racing home from work, he discovered the house in a bad state, with no more than biscuits, gravy stock, tea bags and “a clear lack of defrosted meat” left to eat in the house.
Kearns’ 2-year-old boy, Knox, screamed at him to watch a DVD, while his 6-week-old son, Finn, cried irrespective of being either too hot or too cold. Amid the crying, a sumptuous feast of instant noodles was fed to his 2-year-old, while Kearns tried to figure out how to keep both kids quiet……..read more
Working for a startup has its perks: The excitement, energy and satisfaction of building a business from the ground up is extremely rewarding; but it definitely comes with its own unique set of challenges.
One of the most common difficulties is finding the right talent. I studied team-building while working as a manager in corporate America, and it’s clear to me that the biggest asset to a company is its team.
Many startups can’t afford to hire full-time employees from the onset, so the go-to strategy is to find the best freelancers for your company. The question then becomes: How do you build a team around people who aren’t committed full-time?……...read more
By now, most digital-savvy startups are not only popping up on Pinterest and Facebook, but also on Snapchat and Instagram. Visual and video-driven storytelling give startups a tremendous opportunity to reach new (and younger) customers. But how can entrepreneurs take full advantage of the live video platform, Periscope?
To find out, I asked 13 entrepreneurs from Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) what strategies are most beneficial for companies using the popular social app. Their best answers are below….read more
I’ve had to make some tough decisions in my career. For example, should we institute a big lay-off in 2010, or double-down by hiring more trainees? (More trainees.) Should I fight my boss to return client funds, lost in poorly constructed products in the 2008 downturn? (I did, and lost my job over it.) After that, should I return to big business or start my own business? (I’ve started Ellevest, a digital investment platform targeted to women.)
I’m sometimes asked how I work through tough, high-stakes decisions. I do all of the analyses you might expect; I work though all the pluses and minuses. But here are three questions that I always ask myself, and always give me some clarity:….read more
Careers are unpredictable and go through many kinds of changes. There is no single path that works for everyone and no single strategy that can insure a perfect career arc. Despite all the advice about what makes a person successful, there is probably more to be said about avoiding the things that undermine success. Some of these actually are predictable, and three are important for everyone:……..read more
LONDON — A woman who recently found herself without a roof for the night after missing the last train home from London was so inspired by how her evening was transformed by a homeless man that she took to Facebook to share her story.
After spending the day in London, Nicole Sedgebeer missed her last train back to Milton Keynes — leaving her without shelter until the next train the following morning……read more
I was 17, fresh out of high school, feeling completely out of place in a Washington, D.C., newsroom stacked with grizzled editors. It was my first day.
My boss, Reginald Stuart, told me he needed some papers faxed. Seeing as I’d just left the 12th grade about a month before, I’d never had reason to use a fax machine. He handed me the papers and the cover sheet, and continued typing.
“O.K.,” I said. “Where’s the fax machine, and how do I work it?”
He glanced up briefly. “Ask somebody.”
Months earlier I’d won a national competition sponsored by Knight Ridder, a corporation that owned the newspapers including the Detroit Free Press, the Philadelphia Inquirer and the San Jose Mercury News. Along with a much-needed scholarship to help with college costs, I had a guaranteed paid internship every summer, starting with this one. It was a big step up from the summer job I’d had the previous two summers, a day camp counselor for elementary schoolers…..read more

At a time when the global economy shows no signs of revival, and with Russia and Japan faced with recession, emerging economies like Brazil and South Africa in dire straits; and with no silver lining visible as far as domestic industrial growth is concerned, all eyes are on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on how he plans to sustain economic growth that eventually leads to a job-led growth.
Growth without jobs is meaningless. For the past 12 years, despite a high growth rate, it has largely been a jobless growth with only 15 million jobs created during the 10-years of the UPA regime…..read more
