    Evidence and Your Instincts

    By Feb 21,2017

    Joshua Bell, one of the most famous violinists in the world, took a $3.5-million dollar Stradivarius Violin and played for 45 minutes in a Washington DC subway station. Despite more than 1,000 people walking by, only a three-year old boy and six other people stopped to watch him. Only one person recognized him. How could one of the greatest musicians in the world play for so long in a public place unnoticed? Imagine if you were Bell—you had incredible, world-class talent but no one saw it. Instinctually, you may have felt like you are...

    Athens, Sparta, America and Your Job Search

    By Jan 05,2017

    One of the greatest conflicts in the ancient world was between Athens and Sparta. In fact, the history of ancient Greece was dominated by the conflict between these two different cultures. Both cultures ended up leaving an important legacy to the world. On one hand, the culture of Athens left a legacy of art, drama, architecture, philosophy, the enjoyment of wealth and opulence, the idea of a governmental democracy, and a strong navy. On the other hand, the government of Sparta left a legacy of asceticism, military supremacy on land, and oligarchy...

    One of the stranger moments in my career came when I joined the now defunct law firm, Dewey Ballantine. I was in Los Angeles, and the firm flew us out to New York for orientation with all of the new associates in the firm.

    Jobs from Employers and Employer Websites

    By Jan 19,2017

    When looking for a job, as with anything you do, you get rewards only when you put work into it. Researching employer websites is not the easiest type of work to do. It requires more effort than simply going to a job site, as you may be accustomed to doing. Nevertheless, this is very important, and these are methods you can use to track down jobs pretty much anywhere. It will be worth your while to search employers’ websites for jobs. The small investment that you take right now in learning about this can really end up changing the...

    The Two Most Important Ingredients of Success

    By Feb 18,2017

    The day after September 11th, I was watching television when an official came on air to comment about the economic crisis that was about to unfold when the stock market opened. “We know that when the market opens it is going to be very bad. We also know that some of the greatest fortunes in a generation will be made over the next few weeks by people who have faith in our economy.” Over the next few years, I started reading all sorts of stories in financial publications about various people who had bought
