What Obamacare's Supreme Court Victory Means for Small Businesses — Obamacare is here to stay--and some entrepreneurs are thrilled. In a 6 to 3 decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that health insurance subsidies granted under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are legal, even when the people claiming them are using the federal healthcare exchange instead of state-run ones.

Not Just Uber: How Lawsuits Will Transform the On-Demand Economy — What once looked like a competitive advantage for the on-demand economy may actually turn out to be its Achilles' heel. Companies such as Uber and Instacart stand to save a ton of money on labor costs--up to 40 percent, according to one study--by continuing to classify their workers as independent contractors rather than as employees.

Where Amazon, Uber, and Instacart Are Going to Crash Together — So, how's that new drone initiative going over at Amazon? The one where octocopters the size of pizza boxes are going to wing lightweight packages directly to your front steps? My guess is meh. At least if today's Wall Street Journal is to be believed.

How to Wow Them in a Web Meeting — When you're asked to make a big pitch via conference call or a web meeting, it can be hard to tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing. On the one hand, you may be relieved that you can now be productive during what would otherwise have been travel time.

How to Get the Most Out of Every Dollar You Pay Employees — How do you make sure your workers are as committed to your company as you are? There's no sure-fire solution, of course. But recent research from Harvard and Wealthfront suggests that seemingly-insignificant changes in how you dole out the cash can lead to big changes in productivity.

How Melissa McCarthy Plans to Disrupt the Fashion Industry — Melissa McCarthy wants to change the way clothing is sold. That might seem like an odd goal for the movie star and comedian, who's starring in the new comedy Spy. But McCarthy comes from a fashion design background: She studied clothing and textiles as at Southern Illinois University, then moved to New York to study at Fashion Institute of Technology.

Why Collaboration is Useless for Problem-Solving — Collaboration is basically the grown-up word for "playing nice together." That makes it easy to assume that more collaboration has got to be better than less. Unfortunately, collaboration doesn't always work. Sometimes, it actually shackles your ability to solve a problem.

How to Radically Simplify the Management of Your Startup — Kathleen Eisenhardt is a big believer in the power of radical simplicity. She's literally written the book on it. Eisenhardt, a professor at Stanford University's school of engineering, and the co-director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, is also, with Donald Sull, co-author of Simple Rules: How to Thrive in a Complex World .

The Right Way-and the Wrong Way-To Brag — We all know that humblebrags are irritating, but how irritating, exactly? Finally, a team of Harvard researchers have stepped in to answer this pressing question. The researchers defined a humblebrag as a boast couched in a complaint. If you've ever said something along the lines of, "It is so tiresome to be constantly mistaken for a supermodel," then you've committed a humblebrag.

How Warby Parker Took the Risk Out of Its Business — Italian company Luxottica pretty much owns the eyewear business, controlling 80 percent of the industry through brands that include Prada, Ray-Bay, and even Sunglass Hut and Lenscrafters. So how did Warby Parker decide it made sense to compete against them anyways?
