A funny thing happened about 3 weeks into my internship at Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. There I was, tweeting away like a good social media intern, when one of our supervisors got all our attention. She told us that at the end of each day, we were to email her (or tweet at her, [...]

Story Telling Might Make Your Business

Last week a group of interns from the office attended The Moth, a themed story-slam, in Los Angeles. Not familiar with The Moth?

Mentorship is the New Black

From Plato and Aristotle to Gandalf and Frodo, the historical narrative surrounding the nature of the mentor/mentee relationship is very straightforward; young people fair better in the “real world” when they have expert mentor input readily available. Whether it’s advice on how to solicit funding for a start-up, or instructions on how to destroy the [...]
