How grandma’s advice became a business in the 21st century – BNI case in point

Remember Scarlett O’Hara before her official outing getting advice on behaviour of a proper lady? Not to eat (only married women were allowed to, because they already caught their fish), how to speak, to whom, order of dances etc? You know, whatever a girl from a good home should do to attract the right husband? […]

Why Russians will have it all 3

Well, 2 years ago I wrote my first bulletted thoughts on why Russians will have it all.  That post didn’t leave readers indifferent – I was either supported or derided. Then another one followed, complementing the information. So I decided to add some more now, because media coverage of Russia seems to be horrendously narrow and limited […]

Professionals are expected to work for free ……בעלי מקצועות חופשיים מצופים לעבוד בחינם

A short practical joke, these are the best. Had a coffee yesterday with a couple of friends, and we were also discussing business: marketing, business development, fundraising/investment.

Cats as true moral validators…..LOL!

Well, all this motivational moral verbal chaff of hard work,  PC culture and closets…Nothing like your home grown fur to attest to their real value in an every day application. Really, the CAT-WISDOM is the true litmus test to their practical worth. Judging from my own cats, they do know the best – I totally trust their instincts…. […]

On Failure and Success in the Internet era – the twisted marriage of modern perceptions

Have been reading Forbes and Fortune today and they are all with their different “lists”. Forbes – updating the rich (gender, age, trade etc..), Fortune – going for leadership and failures. Especially how the successful ones (who also happen to be rich) relate to failure. 10 Wildly Successful People on How They View Failure And here […]

Easter – the thoughts on modern Resurrection

Just had this thought, following Brussels terror attack – is there a chance for Resurrection of Europe? Will there be a true soul searching process and discussion of the European identity? Beyond the shallow Brussels’ rules and mandarin speak…..Will this current death hype and porn lead to an effective shift in the mindset….Or will it […]
