Google vs. ad trackers, Facebook's staying power, and the TV giants' dilemma

Google stands to win since it has reams of its own data across its own search, ...

Taking Big Action – For The Big Dreamer

by Jay Bedi, founder of Nylero Entertainment In the modern entrepreneurship era, words such as ‘hustle’, or ‘grind’ may seem like just words being thrown around with no weightage anymore whatsoever. It’s an almost omnipresent frame of mind nowadays – that starting your own business means you are a proactive, independent thinker. Sadly, it’s just people ultimately seeking to conform to the trending label of a self-entitled ‘business owner.’ However, amongst this crowd are the rare entrepreneurs ...

The Importance of Discipline

--> One of the most popular misconceptions in the world is that those who end up being the most successful somehow achieve this success through shortcuts, not through working hard. Each time someone is able to achieve incredible success without a lot of work and with some luck, multiple news stories are generated about it and the person becomes almost legendary for their instant success. Why? Because it is so rare and it gives people an incredible amount of hope. People want to feel they can get...
