The Cardinal Sin When It Comes to Leads

There are many mistakes on might make when provided with a . You could believe that the lead isn’t qualified simply by looking at the company’s name, the size of the company, or the person’s role within their organization, projecting your experience—and your bias—onto the lead without so much as a phone call. You could also be too slow to respond to the lead, believing that you have higher value activities, and since most leads aren’t great, that there is no rush, even the evidence is to the co...

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had a snappy response to the notion that his naked selfies showed poor business judgment (AMZN)

Jeff Bezos says that the National Enquirer argued that it would be in the public interest to publish intimate private photos of him, because they reflect on his judgment as the CEO of Amazon. Bezos had a snappy response: He personally built Amazon up to become one of the most valuable and important companies in the world. "I will let those results speak for themselves." Despite Bezos' snappy comeback, it's worth noting that his divorce from wife MacKenzie Bezos does carry some risks for Amazon...

Project A119: Inside the United States’ secret plan to blow up the Moon

It was the height of the Cold War. At odds were the United States and the former Soviet Union, both attempting to posture and propagandize their way to a win in a geopolitical dispute that dragged on nearly 50 years. Complicating matters was a burgeoning space race, one the US was losing after the Soviets launched their first satellite, Sputnik 1, in 1957. To avoid losing the propaganda war, the US went into scramble mode. First it launched a satellite of its own, Explorer 1. Then it assembled a...

Jeff Bezos essentially accused the National Enquirer of having a political motive for exposing his affair, and insinuated a Trump connection (AMZN)

It looks like the National Enquirer is using Amazon's cloud to host its website (AMZN)

The National Enquirer appears to host its website with Amazon Web Services, the cloud-computing arm of Amazon. The pairing is an awkward match. The Enquirer last month exposed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' affair with a former TV anchor. On Thursday, Bezos accused the Enquirer of attempting to 'extort and blackmail' him, using intimate photos of the executive as leverage.  Politics, as they say, makes for strange bedfellows. So too, it seems, does web hosting. The National Enquirer, which Amazon CEO...
