A NYLON Affair
Huffington Post - over 3 years
So, here I am, at an Italian café at London Heathrow terminal one, waiting for my flight to Greece. I arrived a couple of hours ago from New York and I managed to fit a mini vacations trip to my home country before going back to London to start my new job. New York... What a city to live in, what an adventure! I spent my last 14 months in New York after graduating from Wharton School and taking a risk by choosing to start my own company when most of my classmates returned to the grown up life and got a corporate job. However, the entrepreneurial path allowed me to put into action all the knowlede from my MBA. I was productive and creative, full of energy and courage to start things from scratch and feel the magic as they grew, self-taught news things, learn how to manage my resources in the most efficient way and inspire everyone involve along the way. A year ago, on September 13, I launched Lady and Lara in my apartment's kitchen and it was the most scary thing I did; yep, it beats ...

The Business That Didn't Go According to Any Plan
Inc. Magazine - over 3 years
An entrepreneur who had to pivot more times than he'd like to admit explains how to keep up your confidence when the unexpected happens--again and again. For all the work that goes into crafting business plans, it seems--at least based on the entrepreneurs I meet--that very few start-ups wind up being the business that was first imagined by its founders. Art Papas, co-founder and CEO of Bullhorn, a recruiting software company, is a great example. Here's another in my series where I pick a topic and connect with someone a lot smarter than me. (There's a list of some previous installments at the end of this article.) I'm not a huge fan of the word "pivot," but clearly you've done that more than once. Bullhorn has an interesting history. We're not that start-up that had an idea, went out and implemented it, and found success. We were much more the product of iteration and failure. You always hear that failure is so wonderful, but I beg to differ. We had raised angel investment on an ...

The Quest to Be the Biggest Little Hometown Brewery
Inc. Magazine - over 3 years
L.A.'s Golden Road Brewing Company makes wildly successful brews. But to get big, they're not leaving their hometown--not yet anyway. Sometimes when potential retailers call begging to sell your wildly successful product, it's better to say "no"--at least for now. Meg Gill, co-founder and president of L.A.-based Golden Road Brewing Company, knows this lesson well. Here's another in my series where I pick a topic and connect with someone a lot smarter than me. (There's a list of some previous installments at the end of this article.) This time I talked to Gill, who, at under 30 years old, may be the youngest female brewery owner in the world. (In case you're wondering: I really like their Wolf Among the Weeds brew; tastes great and for an 8-percenter is very smooth, even for far-from-a-beer-guy me.) Most entrepreneurs who start a craft brewery are brewers--but you're not. I had worked in the beer industry but no, I'm not a brewer. What I realized is that craft brewing is a passio ...

Still Partners (in Life and Business) After 20 Years
Inc. Magazine - almost 4 years
Thinking about starting a business with your significant other? Read this first. Becoming business partners can sometimes ruin a great relationship that exists outside of that business. So how can you optimize two major aspects of your life without killing your relationship--or each other--in the process? Here's another in my series where I pick a topic and connect with someone a lot smarter than me. (There's a list of some previous installments at the end of this article.) This time I talked to Jim Burba and Bob Hayes, co-founders of Burba Hotel Network, developing and producing worldwide conferences for the hotel and tourism investment community. They've also been a couple for over 20 years-- so yeah, they know a little about balancing personal and business relationships. You were a couple long before you became business partners. Do you think that helped? JB: When we met at a fancy black tie fundraiser, going into business together was absolutely not on our minds that evening ...

Train vs. Hire: Best Way to Get Talent
Inc. Magazine - over 4 years
When it's time to fill a key position, should you look inside or outside your company? Here's a look at the pros and cons of both strategies. One universal issue every business faces, regardless of the industry: When you have an opening, should you hire ready-made talent or should you work to develop your own talent? Here's another in my series in which I pick a topic and connect with someone a lot smarter than me. (There's a list of previous installments at the end of the article.) This time I talked about hiring talent versus developing talent with Sinclair Schuller, co-founder and CEO of Apprenda, a computer software company that allows organizations to bring cloud DNA to their existing applications. In effect, Apprenda creates a bridge over an existing application river that would otherwise be expensive and time-consuming to ford. (Who says I don't love a metaphor?) Let's start with the basics. Which do you prefer: hiring talent or developing talent? Both can be great. But I ...

9 Questions for Ashley Madison's Founder
Inc. Magazine - over 4 years
Noel Biderman built a business everyone loves to hate: a dating website for cheating spouses. Here's what you can learn from it. Here's an entrepreneurial challenge for you: Build a business and a brand based on a service that many people would reject as "wrong"--at least publicly. And just to make it tougher, do it without most of the traditional advertising vehicles--because they won't come anywhere near your brand. Here's another in my series where I pick a topic, connect with someone smarter than me, and we discuss. (There's a list of previous installments at the end of the article.) This time I talked to Noel Biderman, former sports attorney and current president of AshleyMadison.com and Avid Life Media. Ashley Madison, which has 15 million members in 25 countries, bills itself as the "most successful website for finding affairs and cheating partners." (There is no "Ashley Madison," by the way. Those were two popular female names when the site was created.) I would have no i ...

One Word That Defines a Great Personal Brand
Inc. Magazine - over 4 years
Julia Allison, one of the Web's biggest self-promoters, explains how to define your brand before others do it for you. I was convinced that trying to build a personal brand, especially for the average small-business owner, is a waste of time. And I was admittedly kinda smug about it. Then Julia Allison put me solidly in my place--in the nicest possible way, mind you. Here's another in my series in which I pick a topic, connect with someone smarter than me, and we discuss. (There's a list of previous installments at the end of this article.) This time, I talked to Julia Allison, Elle columnist, speaker on all things branding related, and star of the Bravo series Miss Advised. She was also profiled in Wired a few years ago for her personal branding savvy. Jeff: If I say the average small-business owner shouldn't worry about personal branding, what would you say? Julia: I would start by laughing. Founders are the best advertisement for their companies. The best ROI you can get is ...

Comments of the Week: Endless GUTS bus rides and sexy reality stars
Georgetown Voice - over 4 years
Campus news has been slow these past few weeks, but that hasn’t stopped commenters from finding something to be angry about. Since our last comments of the week, Vox reported on the extended GUTS bus route and let you know how a Georgetown alumna was doing. Here is the finest of what showed up in the comments section. In response to the possible rerouting of GUTS buses, d00$h had this suggestion: maybe we could just have the guts bus drive to dulles, then everyone gets on a plane which flies to Reagan, making sure not to pass over Georgetown of course, and then from there we can take the metro to dupont or wherever. Some of the responses were slightly angrier. This, by Broya Saxa: If I ever grow up to be like these neighbors, any and all of you can slap me in the face and tell me to grow a pair. Seriously this is the stupidest shit I have ever heard. If neighbors can’t deal with a bus driving by their house or college kids having fun, then they need move out to the ...

On Tonight: America's Got Talent, The Glass House and Miss Advised
Branford Patch - over 4 years
Monday, June 18 America’s Got Talent, 8 p.m., NBC I am trying to perfect my Sharon Osbourne laugh. This includes the facial expressions. My son says I am not even close to getting it. The Glass House, 10 p.m., CBS “Seven teams of two work to solve a wall puzzle based on information about their fellow contestants; two players end up in limbo and make a plea to viewers in hope of being voted back into the house.” It’s Big Brother, except with the Abraham Lincoln speech built into the theme. Miss Advised, 10 p.m., Bravo “These single relationship experts can’t seem to practice what they preach as Amy Laurent in New York, Emily Morse in San Francisco, and Julia Allison in Los Angeles struggle to stay afloat in the deep end of the dating pool.” Apparently this is a reality show, not a sitcom. Hard to tell the difference. Tonight, in the premiere, “When an old flame comes to town, Julia has trouble following her own rules; Emily's happily married brother comes to visit.”
