As the father of three daughters and the husband of an entrepreneur, I expect that these women can and will receive equal earning opportunities.
Are there places where women earn more than men?
In an article in on FastCompany.com it states, “The financial literacy website Nerd Wallet recently analyzed data from the U.S. Census, comparing the median salaries, cost of living, income equality between the sexes, and population growth of 522 cities: 61 large cities with populations over 300,000, 241 medium-sized cities with population from 100,000 to 300,000 and 220 small cities with populations under 100,000. The result is a comprehensive list of the top cities for women to work in America.”
Hiring the right people is everything in building a winning team. If you learn how to hire the right people, you will spend less time managing and more time guiding and leading. When I had to hire a key member of my team as a new publisher, I hired the person with the most experience. […]

Ever wish you could take a car ride with some of the funniest people on earth just to hear the banter?
Remember the guy that tells Jerry Seinfeld to “Take the pen!” at his parent’s retirement community only to double cross Jerry. The double-crossing pen character’s name was Jack and he was played by New York comedian Sandy Baron. I took a ride with Sandy and our agent once to get coffee. I laughed and learned as I listened to this classic comic tell stories. Now one of America’s premiere comic minds lets you take a similar ride.
Starting June 19, 2104, Jerry Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” begins its fourth season. Jerry Seinfeld picks up where Sandy and I left off as a choice number of today’s best comics minds go for rides in cars that are absolute classics to get a cup off coffee.
Each episode is a chance to see what makes the comic mind function and to also see what comics find funny. I learn something from every episode as Seinfeld asks everything from the most mundane to some penetrating questions. Some of past favorite guest have been Howard Stern, Larry David, Louis C.K., Tina Fey and David Letterman. Each guest hops in a classic car with comic superstar Seinfeld and takes a ride to everything from New Jersey diners to hipsters hangouts.
Put a date in your calendar for Noon each Thursday beginning on June 19, 2014. Episodes launch Thursdays but can be viewed at any time.
Enjoy the ride as you expand your mind. After all, cruising with creative minds isn’t a bad way to take a midday break.
Throughout my career there is one thing that makes me the most proud. It is when a person on my team tells my wife how much I am respected as a boss. Driving home from picnics, Christmas parties or other events, my wife often takes the time to tell me about what my team members […]
Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day. I am honored to know a man who landed on the beach that day. Morley Piper was 19 years old and was a second lieutenant in the 29th Infantry Division. On D-day he and his platoon of 30 men landed on Omaha Beach. I have heard him speak […]
When you walk into a company where disengaged employees dwell, you can feel it. Disengaged employees provided a palpable sense of disconnectedness from the company and its mission. They don’t care about what goes on around them. You could be there or not. They are indifferent. The buzzkill a group of disengaged employees brings to […]
Recently people gathered in a hotel ballroom to watch and hear speakers in a different city talk live about leadership on a simulcast. The day, Leadercast, was amazing and featured some of the top speakers in the world (Simon Sinek, Malcolm Gladwell, Andy Stanley, Dr. Henry Cloud, and even Archbishop Desmond Tutu). There were only […]
Jennifer Lee has arrived. She is a historic woman. She is the first female film director to surpass $1 billion (billion, with a B) is box office sales. She is the first woman, in fact, to direct a Disney animated feature film. Jennifer Lee is the reason I have listened to the soundtrack to the […]
