Goldman Sachs execs are opening up about their plans for Marcus, and they think it can do to banking what iTunes did to the music industry

Goldman Sachs' global head of consumer, Harit Talwar, recently said the banks' consumer finance business, Marcus, is inspired by how Amazon and iTunes disrupted their respective industries.  David Haber, Goldman Sachs' vice president of strategy and corporate development, spoke last month about how Marcus has a unique opportunity to serve as a distribution platform or back end for companies outside of financial services.   Both comments suggest executives view Marcus as eventually serving as a...

The Arizona Cardinals Now Give Their Players Phone Breaks

Should the NHL Bring Back Christmas Games?

The Pittsburgh Penguins franchise can always find a reason to celebrate. From Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve games to theme nights and victory parades, the organization — from the front office right down to the players — loves to find a way to make games fun and memorable for fans. There is one holiday that would make for an obvious party of Penguins proportions: Christmas. However, because of league rules, the idea of a Christmas game in Pittsburgh has never even been under consideration. May...

Now that you have a sense of the relative life investment required to learn the tongue or tongues of your choice, how about a few words of advice on how to start?

Producers showed a clip of how Joseline acts behind the scenes during the season 6 finale (click HERE if you missed that) and apparently Joseline feels it’s all a set up because she quit the show.

Why Did Joseline Hernandez Quit Love & Hip Hop Atlanta?

As you may (or may not) have heard, after six crazy seasons, Joseline Hernandez has reportedly quit Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Though nothing has been confirmed by production (we’ll have to wait and see what goes down in the two-part reunion), there are enough credible reports floating around — even words from Joseline’s own mouth — that we can pretty much concur that Joseline has really walked away from the show that made her a household name.

Since then, the show has grown into media franchise with two additional installments that have expanded the show from New York to Atlanta and Hollywood. There have been four spin-offs and three specials, in addition to an eponymous mobile game.Spearheaded by Mona Scott-Young, the show’s succe...

All Models Are Wrong, Some Are Useful

Even the best models of the world are imperfect. This insight is important to remember if we want to learn how to make decisions and take action on a daily basis. For example, consider the work of Albert Einstein. During the ten year period from 1905 to 1915, Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, which is one of the most important ideas in modern physics. Einstein's theory has held up remarkably well over time. For example, general relativity predicted the existence of gravitation...

About Things Not Going According to Plan

So things don’t go according to plan. Big deal; change happens. Does that mean your plans failed? No. Not if you understand planning and work it correctly; at least, not with lean business planning. I don’t know about diets and life plans, but business plans are always wrong, but still vital. It’s the fact that things don’t go according to plan that makes planning so important. I refer to a thoughtful post at Lifehack, from some years ago, titled at Why Your Plans Fail, written by Scott Young.  ...
