LinkedIn Turn-offs You Should Avoid

LinkedIn Turn-Offs You Should Avoid

|
We can probably agree that LinkedIn is a powerful tool for building your network and perhaps creating social capital, however, there are undoubtedly good and productive ways of doing this as well as turn-offs that you should avoid. Note, these are subject to interpretation and therefore based purely on my own preferences and perceptions.

We've Got Your Lucky Number

We’ve got your lucky number: 50-8-4-9

|
Have you noticed it? There is a distinct sense of spring in the air. Not just the season, mind you, but the spasmodic heave of the economic engine… with a tang of ozone… Business optimism is growing, feeding off increasing vaccination rates, economic stimulus, pent-up consumer demand, and loose monetary policy… There it is again… the unmistakable aroma of executive opportunity. Naturally, many…
RETURN OF THE ROARING TWENTIES

Return of the Roaring Twenties

|
Mix low inflation, government largess, easy money, pent-up consumer demand, low business investment, and vast amounts of hoarded cash… and what do you get? Once the pandemic eases, we predict a return to the Roaring Twenties. Economic news outlets such as Kiplinger may highlight higher inflation in 2021, but the picture is mixed when you look at specific sectors. For example, used c…
Economic Cycle- FREE YOURSELF FROM THE ECONOMIC CYCLE

Free Yourself from the Economic Cycle

|
There seem to be two prevailing theories on offer at the moment regarding the economic cycle: A) Too much fiscal stimulus will ignite inflation and lead to recession.; or B) well timed and adequate stimulus combined with the broad success in vaccination will allow for a sustained and full-throated return to something approximating economic normalcy.

The Oil Industry on a Slippery Slope

|
Crude oil has recovered somewhat from the Covid-19 shock to consumption.  This reminds me of Jonathan Swift’s famous quip: “Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.”  But is the recovery in oil prices reason to cheer?  In the short term, perhaps, unless you focus on climate change, but let us consider the oil business’ broader future. There are multiple signs that a tectonic shift is ta…
Overcoming challenges at a major pharmacy retailer

Overcoming challenges at a major pharmacy retailer

|
Here I am continuing my interviews with a number of retailers.  All of them have interesting stories to tell about how Covid-19 transformed their businesses.  None of them are willing to state their names.  So we’ll handle these stories anonymously. Let’s continue with a major pharmacy retailer — a household name — selling billions of dollars to consumers in the US.  I spoke with their VP for…
