Why You’re Stuck In A Job You Hate

Let’s face it, if you’re like most people, you’re likely stuck in a job you hate. Even if you quit your job and start your own business, you could find yourself stuck in a job you hate forever?

A Business Idea You Can Steal – Radio Broadcasting

Periodically I post a business idea that I’d love someone to steal.  It’s usually something I would personal do if I had the time, talent, or knowledge.  But since I don’t, I hope to find someone who does, so I can fund them.

The One Reason I’m Keeping Meerkat and Deleting Periscope

Meerkat might have been the biggest star of this year’s South By South West (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas.  Just as quickly as it grew, it began to fizzle when Twitter launched Periscope a few days ago.  It doesn’t matter to me, I’m sticking with Meerkat for one simple reason.

Streaming through Twitter is a feature people have wanted for a while.  In January, Twitter purchased Periscope to bring the people what they wanted.  But Meerkat grabbed the first mover advantage by taking over SXSW.
