Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about the concept of solo entrepreneurship and I’m all over it for a number of reasons. One of the biggest reasons is because I really, truly, in my heart of hearts believe our economy will continue to sputter until we find a way to get all of this knowledge […]

What Makes an Employee Productive?

There are three elements that help create a motivational environment: autonomy, mastery, and purpose. Let’s dig a little deeper.

Want The Best That Money Can Buy? Consider Fractional Ownership

Here’s a little piece of trivia for you. Do you know the name of Warren Buffet’s private jet?
