A job without a boss

Are you a freelancer or an entrepreneur? It’s not simply semantics, your answer changes everything. Freelancers get paid when they work. We’re not focused on scale… and we’re not tiny versions of real entrepreneurs. Freelancers do the work for clients who need them. Hiring employees to scale when you’re a freelancer can be a bit of a trap, because you are likely to give up the very thing you set out to do in the first place. Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, are organized for growth. The job of ...

Human rights activist Amira Yahyaoui is battling the US college financial aid system

Tunisian human rights activist Amira Yahyaoui couldn’t go to college. Not because she couldn’t afford it; where she comes from, college is virtually free. She lost the opportunity to pursue higher education, to finish high school, even, when she was exiled from Tunisia at age 17, under the repressive regime of the country’s former President, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. As part of the Tunisian human rights diaspora, she was inspired to build Al Bawsala, a globally renowned NGO that fights for govern...

Mary Barra's impatience could save GM

Mary Barra, the boss of General Motors, didn't win friends in Washington when she announced the company would shut down four US plants and lay off thousands of employees. The move seemed heartless, especially since GM had just said it could take in record profits, a decade after its bankruptcy had been funded by taxpayers.

Detroit and Silicon Valley are racing to roll out fully self-driving cars, and the winner will be decided by one key factor

Investors are betting the real value of AV companies will come from the estimated 4 terabytes of data each car will generate per day. And based on the way they’re valuing the major AV players, Wall Street seems to think tech companies have a better shot than Detroit at capitalizing on that data. There's a growing realization on Wall Street that self-driving cars are still many years away. That pessimism is weighing far more heavily on traditional automakers than technology companies. The bi...
