It’s time to ditch the American obsession with meritocracy

Americans have an unwavering belief in economic mobility. Most people in the U.S. think they can work hard to get ahead, even though economic mobility is . Americans underestimate the importance of luck and believe that people who are ahead got there from hard work and intelligence. Even something like a good photo is statistically just luck based on how many photos we take. But when we get a good photo we feel skilled. Economists have found that the bigger a gap there is between rich and po...

The Rationality of Emotions

Emotions have gotten a bad rap these days. We’re frequently told we should mistrust them, ignore them, even f**k them. It may seem that humanity, especially the male segment of it, has always evinced this level of skepticism towards our feelings, viewing them as unreliable guides — womanly disrupters of our happiness and tranquility. But the role of emotions in the lives of men and women alike has not always been viewed so dubiously by everyone, in every time; instead, distrust in feelings waxe...

I Went to New York and all I got was this lousy tee-shirt

Hey – me again. Today I thought I would review New York City for you. I went there for the first time when I was 12 years old. Back then I was more interested in what new games I was going to get for my GameBoy (Bubble Ghost wasn’t available in Europe and I was very desperate to go to FAO Schwarz and get my hands on it). Fast forward 28 years, I find myself on a plane to the Big Apple where I am going to spend a few days with some friends from London. It’s my life and I’m living it! NYC and ...

Victoria’s Secret Tease Heartbreaker Review

Founded in 1977, when big and obvious equalled successful and alluring, it’s no shocker that Victoria’s Secret has been struggling to stay relevant following fourth-wave feminism and #MeToo, with sales nosediving across the board, compounded by a string of corporate resignations. The beauty side of their business has clearly adopted the same strategy as the rest of the fragrance industry, des...

Four Weeks from Today! by The Pioneer Woman

I received the very first copy of my new cookbook a week or so ago. It was so hot off the press, I burned my hand! Just kidding, I didn’t burn my hand. Only my index finger! Okay, it wasn’t really hot and I didn’t burn anything. But I was burning with excitement! Does that count?     Four weeks from today (if you have preordered the cookbook, anyway!) this will be burning a hole in your mailbox. And four weeks from today, I’ll be on the TODAY Show, probably shaking from nervousness since sti...

How your salon visit contributes to your carbon footprint

As the services available at salons evolve, waste, pollution and exposure to toxins have increasingly become part of the experience. When one considers that the beauty industry creates 420,000 pounds of waste every day in America alone, it’s not difficult to see why we should be aware of the carbon footprint your hair services actually create. One salon is hoping to change that to help clients feel their best without increasing their carbon footprints. Benjamin Novak Hudgins of Novak Hair Studio...

The Story of Mäurer Wirtz: A Soap Company That Became a Fragrance Giant

One of the fondest memories of my childhood was the passion with which my grandparents groomed themselves. They paid impeccable attention to their toilette, rendering their habits a wonderful springboard for falling in love with fragrance. In fact, I attribute my yearning for interesting smells to their vanities groaning with mysterious and eye-catching bottles of fancy products with beckoning liq...

Essex, Somerset, 27 Dresses and “Pou-Pou”

This article is pinned to the top of the page. New articles will appear directly beneath it. Have you ever seen 27 Dresses? Your most likely answer to that question will be, “I think I’ve seen some of it, but I can’t really remember it.” 27 Dresses is the kind of film they broadcast on ITV3 on a Sunday afternoon. You might have happened upon it halfway through, watched 20 minutes and then drawn your conclusions and flicked to something else. It is a about a woman (Katherin...

The Difference Between Branded and Nobody #personalBranding

Almost two years ago I hung my shingle out and looked for a full-time job. I had JibberJobber at a point where it didn’t need (or want) my full attention, Pluralsight wasn’t ready for anymore of my courses… and I had time. I also needed a change of scenery. And heck, if I had time, why not look for something where I could get paid, and create one more income stream? So I did what I had been talking about others doing for years and I became a job seeker. It wasn’t as fun as it sounds, but it was ...

You Can’t Be Present and Busy

I rushed to a conference last week. I was leading a workshop the next day and didn’t want to be that guy: the guy who only shows up for his workshop but skips everything else. Truthfully, though, I didn’t have the time. I wished I could have skipped the evening and stayed at home. But I was there and started to listen. It turns out that I needed to hear what the main speaker, Karen Reed, had to say. Reed spoke about her ministry in East Vancouver. She spoke about living faithfully in a com...

Are You Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic?

You have probably heard before that people tend to be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. In my experience, this is true and it is something you can generally pick up on within just a few minutes of meeting the average person. Understanding whether or not you are one or the other is something that can help you understand what sort of work you should be doing, the sorts of people you should be working with, the people you should be spending your time with, and the type of environment that will make...
