About Us

They see their role as enabling others productivity not necessarily protecting their own.

They take things too personally.

For example a basic principle in most management books is that you should never embarrass an employee in a public setting.

Through that process eleven companies made acquisition offers of some form.

The lesson learnedthat animal lovers are welcome or that employees can live however they wantmay provide some societal value but it does not connect to your business in a distinguishing way.

Forcing content producers onto social media also has negative effects on the ability to go deep.

To return to our question about why cultures of connectivity persist the answer according to our principle is because its easier.

What you can do even a child can do what you cant do even Einstein couldnt have done.

I had a CFO who didnt know software accounting a head of sales who had never sold software and a head of marketing who did not know our market.

Part of what fueled social medias rapid assent I contend is its ability to short-circuit this connection between the hard work of producing real value and the positive reward of having people pay attention to you.
