That Franny Oxford. She's so smart. And long-winded.
If you own a small business, where every hire counts, or if you are hiring someone for a key role, don’t get complacent

Researchers in the fields of business, economics, and psychology maintained their relentless pursuit of knowledge in 2011, discovering, among other things, that a joke can get you a raise and that it's OK to mimic your customers. In my search during the past year for statistics to publish in HBR's Daily Stat newsletter, I found a few memorable pieces of research-based advice on how to get ahead in an unforgiving world: First, remember "A-B-D" — ...

"People who cohabit with just one person and then marry that person go on to accumulate wealth at double the rate of people who marry without cohabiting, according to..."

Someone is confusing correlation with causation. Probably, people who live together before marriage are smarter overall.

VibrantNation.com is an information website for older women. Its editorial director, Susan Lee Ward, works hard and produces a lot of the content herself. But she doesn’t exist. She’s a profile under which the other site authors publish. Susan Lee Ward is “a summation of what our members tell us about themselves”, so she serves as the embodiment of the site’s target market. Virtual employees could be everywhere on the web, even here. For example,...

Like Schmutzie my Klout score suffered (and my client's) when the new algorithm was put in place October 25th. I was disappointed to see the drop but I saw it as an opportunity to rethink and improve what I was doing. Klout simply provides another lens from which to assess comparatively your level of engagement. Personally, I cringe a bit at the way they loosely throw around the term "Influence" as I don't think they can really measure that (at least not, yet) but I do think they do a good job of tracking engagement. It's not the only assessment tool out there but it does provide some information. It's free. It's just one tool in the toolkit. So I'm not quite sure what the fuss is all about. I guess it's a matter of perspective.

Frankly, I would have preferred Schmutzie to have asked to be on a client advisory council for Klout to improve their offering within the context of small to medium sized brands rather than "taking her ball home and ending the game". I bet Klout would have taken her up on it and we would all be better for it.
