Patagonia’s Billionaire Founder To Give Away The Millions His Company Saved From Trump’s Tax Cuts To Save The Planet – Angel Au-Yeung

1.jpg

Yvon Chouinard, billionaire founder of outdoor apparel firm Patagonia, has traditionally shied away from politics. But things have changed for the rock-climbing, fly-fishing outdoorsman since Donald Trump moved into the Oval Office. On Wednesday, Patagonia announced it has an additional $10 million in profits on its books for 2018 as a result of Trump’s “irresponsible tax cut” last year, which lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. Instead of investing the additional dollars back into its business, Patagonia said it would give $10 million to grassroot groups fighting climate change, including organizations that work in regenerative organic agriculture to help reverse global warming.

How Kara Swisher Is Holding Tech Titans Accountable – Moira Forbes

1.jpg

“You don’t get a medal for not doing a good job,” says Recode’s executive editor, Kara Swisher. Known as much for her brutal honesty as she is for breaking big news, Swisher is outspoken in her ongoing scrutiny of Silicon Valley, adamant that leaders there could and should be doing better when it comes to moving the needle on diversity, on and off their platforms. “They have a quantum amount of money, a huge amount of power and impact and influence. If you want to live in those worlds, you have to take responsibility,” says Swisher……..

Want To Sell More? Keep Your Mouth Shut – George Deeb

1.jpg

I have written dozens of useful how-to lessons for driving sales, but perhaps none is more important than this one.  This is the day that you learn that driving sales has very little to do with what YOU have to say.  And, it is everything to do with what YOUR CLIENT has to say.  The magic sauce to closing the transaction is knowing how to ask probing questions, sit back and LISTEN.  Keeping your mouth shut is typically a really hard concept for a salesperson to grasp.  But, if they do, jewels of insights and real pain points of your customers will quickly surface to the top the more THEY talk……..

American Express, Amazon, And Barbara Corcoran Partner To Help Small Businesses – Jaime Catmull

1.jpg

As of 2016, there were approximately 28.8 million small businesses, which accounted for 99.7% of all U.S. businesses, according to the Small Business Administration. That’s a tremendous economic force that is fueling the country’s growth and framing opportunity for more entrepreneurs and freelancers to join the ranks. Even with positive signs that point to the ongoing growth in small businesses, challenges remain. For those already operating a business, the National Small  Business Association found that growth can be slowed by economic uncertainty and limited access to credit…….

Here’s a question I hear a lot from young women: “How do I leave my job that comes with benefits and direct deposit paychecks and become an entrepreneur?” There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. So I share stories of what I did and what other women are doing to give them perspective, context and color to help them find their answers.

How This Millennial Came To Realize The Value Of Old-School Management – Chris Myers

1.jpg

Youth is a funny thing. No matter how many mentors you have, classes you take, or books you read, you always think you know better. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about business or simply life in general, the young are genetically programmed to reject the wisdom of their elders. It’s only when you accumulate enough life experience and begin to become an elder yourself that you begin to realize that much……
