The journal, Computers and Human Behavior, points out that they surveyed nearly two thousand young adults using the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System. The study revealed something that I think most would assume.

It’s kind of a proud moment when rugby gets national exposure like that. Although NBC has been airing rugby matches ever since 2009 in the US, ESPN has marginalized the sport behind basketball, baseball, and football.

Snapchat just released a new update that allows for users to open up what they are calling a “Snap Map”.

This new feature is going to be huge for local businesses for a host of different reasons. Number one being that users can now look up stories by location. This means that if your company is streaming stories, a potential client of yours that’s nearby can open up their snap map and tune in.

I’m pretty sure Jeff Bezos is a genius. I mean when the guy was 3 years old he would take a part his crib in protest so that he could sleep in a real bed. At a young age, he built everything from robots, to crafts, to toys. Even today, he’s building a 10,000 year old clock (if you don’t know what it is check it out!).

You know what they say? “If it tastes good, it’s not good for you”.

Well a PepsiCo brand supposedly taste way too good for its own good! They have just been sued by CSPI, America’s food watchdog, on the basis that their marketing tactics were misleading to the general public.

Only recently, I came back to manage the Marketing Eye business, something I haven't done in more than 6 or 7 years.

It's a daunting task because all of a sudden you have responsibility and there are new ways in which you need to navigate how you lead the team, and take them where you want to go, but also, where they want to go.

So, a young guy applies to be the Director of Sales and Marketing for a fast growing startup in the Fintech space. His name is John Doe. He had experience as a sales manager and he wants to test the waters in the fast-moving environment of the startup life. He’s a natural born salesman. He’s very charismatic and outgoing and seems to just say “yes” to every opportunity he comes across. So, John doesn’t think twice when taking on new challenges. He applies to that job with the prospects of huge earning potential and a great learning experience. When he gets called in for his interview, the entire team loves his energy. The hiring manager pretty much makes up their mind the minute he leaves that they’ll offer him the position.
