It isn't the work... It's the place
by Kimberly Schneiderman - May, 2011
Have you ever started a new job that was supposed to be great only to discover that while the work was fine, the place was just awful? Perhaps the budget for marketing was nil. Maybe the boss gave no direction…or too much direction! Did they move from downtown to uptown within a couple months? Wouldn’t it have been nice to know some of these things before you accepted the job offer? Here are some questions you can ask, along...
The garden and the network
by Dawn Bugni - May, 2011
I worked in the yard this past weekend. Truth be told, a well-manicured lawn and perfect landscaping hasn’t been a priority for many years. Combine five dogs and two growing businesses (up until 2009) with country living and no homeowners association to tell me weed whack and it got a little shaggy around the edges.

10 Dollars and A Laptop
by Steve Farber - May, 2011
Last weekend at the always inspiring SobCon event in Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet Greg Hartle, the itinerate business consultant and philosopher. He’s on a mission to visit 50 states, collect 501 stories, and demonstrate that it’s possible to make a living starting from scratch–even in this new, challenging (to say the least) economy.

College finals are rapidly approaching and marks the end of that anxiety-filled college freshman year. Once students put that freshman year behind them, they now join the ranks of "rising sophomores."
