Here’s How Bloomberg Should Have Spent His $1.8B For Economic Mobility – Allison Dulin Salisbury

1.jpg

As soon as news hit of Michael Bloomberg’s latest donation to Johns Hopkins University, the praise—and the critiques—started rolling in. If you missed it, the billionaire and former New York City mayor announced last week that he would be giving $1.8 billion to his alma mater to increase need-based financial aid for low- and middle-income students. Bloomberg’s goal, he wrote in The New York Times, was that “no qualified high school student should ever be barred entrance to a college based on his or her family’s bank account.” That’s a well-meaning goal, but it misses the mark on promoting economic mobility more broadly, his ultimate aim, and the purported aim of much of education philanthropy………….

Visit One Of The Best (And Tastiest) Symbols Of A New York Neighborhood – Gerald Eskenazi

1.jpg

You catch the aroma on Arthur Avenue as a happy shopper opens the door, left arm holding a huge, bulging bag of bread and cookies. Yes, this is the Madonia Bakery, in its way a symbol of New York as much as the Lower East Side, the High Line, and Rockefeller Center. New York, to New Yorkers, is the neighborhood, and increasingly these areas are being discovered by visitors to the Big Apple. And Madonia Bakery, on one of the iconic streets in the borough of the Bronx, makes the list……..

6 Ways Tech Has Reinvented Holiday Shopping – Mark Stone

1.jpg

This year shoppers will go about their business in a retail environment where online commerce has taken a bigger piece of the holiday sales pie. Customers are clearly appreciating the frictionless shopping experience that online platforms and payment providers can offer. It also doesn’t hurt that 59 percent of people, according to a PayPal study, would rather do almost anything than deal with holiday shopping crowds. That includes shoveling snow for a quarter of that group……..

Why Investing In Your Employees Is The Future of Work – Drew Holler

1.jpg

As we look toward the future of work, it’s becoming more important than ever for companies to understand the needs of their teams, and to build solutions and products to help serve them—whether that’s through training, healthcare, or other investments. At Walmart, we’ve been very deliberate about investing in our associates, particularly over the past three years as we’ve thought about new ways to improve their lives and careers. Education is the latest iteration of that commitment. Between historically low unemployment rates in the US and innovative technologies reshaping jobs, all businesses have a lot of work to do—both in terms of recruiting and upskilling  ……..

Billionaire technology titans Marc Benioff and Jack Dorsey don’t exactly see eye to eye on how to fix the homeless problem plaguing San Francisco.

Salesforce cofounder and CEO Marc Benioff, who has been outspoken about the need he sees for tech companies to play their part in addressing homelessness in San Francisco, has come out in support of Prop C and tweeted on Frida…..

How To Effectively Determine Your Market Size – Alejandro Cremades

One of the most crucial tasks an entrepreneur has is to calculate the size of their market, and the potential value that market has for their startup business. Without this data you can’t create a viable business plan, or be taken seriously when approaching potential investors. As described in my book, The Art of Startup Fundraising, the market needs to be in the billions. Otherwise, even if you have the perfect team and product the returns will be limited for potential investors making your investment opportunity less attractive……

If You Want To Be A Great Mentor Do These 5 Things – Carrie Kerpen

1.jpg

While having a mentor can make a significant difference in your career, being one can also be a valuable experience—that comes with a lot of responsibility. A great mentor doesn’t just provide guidance and answers during career transitions or sticky situations; she also provides motivation and inspiration to help her mentee get to the next level and fulfill her potential.

Want to be a great mentor? Consider these five key skills.

  1. Listen.

“Listen first,” says Whitney Gonzales, marketing manager at Liingo Eyewear. “Think of yourself as a life coach. A good mentor always navigates the mentee to a solution or a next step; they don’t solve it for them. Help to remove roadblocks for your mentee, and alternatively, create bridges for them. Also understand that your mentee is not you, so they will want or need to carve their own professional path. You don’t need to be a perfect, shining example either. Your failures and hardships throughout life and your career are just as valuable to your mentee as are your successes. And realize, sometimes you are just there to listen.”

A good listening tip is to take notes during your mentoring sessions to stay actively engaged. If you can give your mentee some direction, make sure to follow up on that direction the next time you meet: “I remember you were going to ask for the promotion. How did that go?”

  1. Deliver honest feedback.

“I love mentors that keep it real and give honest feedback, including pointed criticism,” says Coral Chung, co-founder of luxury handbag brand Senreve. “While it’s wonderful to get support and be cheered on, it’s also important to hear things that other people are not willing to say. In the early days of Senreve, some of my best mentors were also my harshest critics, but that was okay because it helped me improve, and it showed that they have high expectations from me. Ultimately, their early feedback allowed me to have a very successful launch and first year of the company.”

“A mentor’s job is to provide knowledge, inspiration, and feedback to help light way,” adds Demi Marchese, founder of 12th Tribe. “You have to be comfortable enough to be constructive and not be afraid of critiquing their work. Don’t beat around the bush. Understand who you are speaking to, their needs, their strengths and where they want to go.”

  1. Motivate and inspire.

“The key for me personally is to influence and inspire the next generation to become strong, motivated, confident, and thoughtful leaders,” says Laurel Berman, founder and creative director of Black Halo. “If I’m able to accomplish that, I consider the mentorship a success.”

Adds Marchese, “Part of your role is inspiring your mentee to reach their fullest potential and challenging their comfort zone. Help them achieve the uncomfortable.”

Pro tip: A little goes a long way. Send an article when you see something relevant for your mentee—you’ll see how a small act can have a tremendous impact.

  1. Establish mutual respect.

“The relationship should be based on mutual respect, trust and support,” says Maryann Bruce, former president of Evergreen Investments Services. “The partnership needs to foster acceptance and safety where both parties feel safe enough to communicate openly and take risks without the threat of being judged, ridiculed or condescended to.”

One of the biggest ways to show respect for someone is by valuing their time. When you mentor someone, the truth is, you may be in a position of power and your time may be in fact more valuable—but that’s irrelevant. To you, this may be a quick call, but to your mentee, this may be the most important meeting of the day—so treat it as such.

 Be present and open.

“Show up, engage and participate,” says Berman. “They say that showing up is half the battle, but when you do show up, it’s crucial to be fully present, proactive and take initiative. Be prepared to share your experiences, both positive and negative.”

“Mentors should be open and honest with their mentees,” adds Melissa Musgrove, vice president, head of social media at Regions Financial Corporation. “Be willing to make time to offer advice, but also realize that no two career paths are the same, and the mentee’s decisions and career path are ultimately up to them. Oftentimes, mentors have just as much to learn as mentees. So look not only for what advice you can give, but also use it as an opportunity to learn from someone who has a different perspective and background.”

If everyone who read the articles and like it, that would be favorable to have your donations – Thank you.
