7 Extremely Successful People Reveal What They Learned From Failing — Before I wrote my first book, I went to a half dozen writers conferences trying to learn how to "land the book deal." Most of the advice was pretty generic save for one. The author was no JK Rowling, but she had moderate success and was seen by us in the audience as the person to aspire to.

7 Times It’s Perfectly OK to Lie At Work — Lying seems like a crisp black and white matter, at least the way we tell it to our kids. In other words, don't do it! And yet that's just not reality. Lying is a part of our development-learning how to fib is considered a growth milestone in children the same as learning how to walk or feed oneself independently.

Living The Global Dream: Relax On the Beach While Working a Full-Time Job — The days of me backpacking across the world are over. Even if I was given the choice, I'd likely say "no thanks" to traipsing the globe with a suitcase and round-the-world ticket.

Don’t Even Think About Starting A Business Now Without Reading This Advice From A Dot Com Survivor — Chet Kanojia is used to taking on the big guys. A few years ago, he found himself embroiled in a Supreme Court fight to shake up the broadcast television world through his startup, Aereo. He lost that fight against media giants like CBS and Comcast but like a true-blooded entrepreneur, he's back with a new company called Project Decibel .

3 Things To Make You Feel Better About The Stock Market Turmoil — 2016 has not been kind to our bank accounts. As we lumbered back from our holidays, the Dow slapped us with a 1,400-point drop.

The Hard Truth About Success From a Fired CEO — When I first started in business news twenty years ago, I was afraid the content would be boring. I'd have to write endless articles about earnings, capital markets and more earnings.
