The New Normal? Five Questions That Will Reinvent Business Decision Making After COVID-19

“Business decision-making has changed more in the past six months than in the previous sixty years,” said Eugene Roytburg, Ph.D., decision science expert and Managing Director at Fractal Analytics, in our recent conversation. “The COVID-19 crisis forced every executive to make rapid decisions with previously unimaginable impacts, while everyone switched to online remote work at the same time. It’s astonishing.”

Recent statistics support his insight. A McKinsey study found that 82 percent of executives said they make decisions faster now, and half say much faster. Simultaneously, the number of meetings required to make decisions plummeted — major business decisions are now half as likely to need six or more meetings. And all this is happening with almost all collaboration now mediated by technology.

But Dr. Roytburg’s more significant insight is about what’s missing from

‘Ando Saves:’ Sudbury’s Jesse Rich raises money by making stops as a hockey goalie to help children of late Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer – Sports – MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA

Now, it’s Jesse’s turn to help by doing the one thing he likes most: making saves.

WESTBOROUGH — Jesse Rich wants to make a lot of saves this year.

That’s because the 12-year-old ice hockey goalie from Sudbury is stopping pucks for a good cause.

From Sept. 15 to Dec. 15, Rich, who plays netminder for two club hockey teams, is asking people to donate money for each save he makes. Those funds will go to the family of former Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer, Yoshitaka Ando, who died from esophageal cancer last year, in order to raise enough money to send all four of Ando’s children to college.

“I want to give back to Ando and his family in the same way he gave to my community,” wrote Rich in an online pledge last month.

“(My dad) would appreciate it so much,” said Marcus Ando, one of Ando’s three sons and

Making A Career Pivot From Ballet Dancer To Business Development

“Once you begin to feel a sense of success and accomplishment in a new role, you begin to build more confidence, which will only keep you going in the right direction. Life is a journey and there are many layers so just keep going!” – Angessa Lynn Hughmanick

If you have followed my column in the past, you know I love to share real-life examples of people changing careers – like this non-profit professional who become an independent film producer or this management consultant turned journalist. Sometimes the pivot is more entrepreneurial – like how this brand marketer disrupted toilet paper. Today’s career pivot goes from arts to business, as a professional ballet dancer finds a new career in marketing and communications.

Economic downturns make it more important than ever for entrepreneurs to secure the marketing support they need to sustain profitability for their small businesses. Jennifer Kem, CEO of The Master Brand Institute, knows from experience the pain of losing everything due to the drastic shift in the 2008-2009 financial crisis when she was forced to close her brick-and-mortar retail business. Within a year, she was bankrupt, borrowing money from her mother, and knocking on literal and proverbial doors to see where she would find the next best opportunity to finance herself and her two daughters. 

Today, she is the CEO of two future-proof, eight-figure earning enterprises, both of which focus on brand strategy and marketing consulting for corporate and small businesses. As she watches the economy struggle and small business leaders pivot from the potential of

It seems everywhere we look, we see another brick-and-mortar brand closing down for good. Since the early 2000s, the rise of the internet and ecommerce platforms like Amazon and Shopify have fundamentally altered the way we shop for goods, and this trend has accelerated since the shutdowns earlier in 2020. With more brands moving online, it’s not enough to have an online presence anymore, because there’s too much competition. To rise to the top in eCommerce, you must not only know the right strategies, but also the major barriers to entry and how to work around them.

Robinhood Markets is weighing whether to restore public access to data on its customers’ trading activity after pulling it about two months ago.

“We’re looking into it,” Robinhood co-founder Vladimir Tenev said in an interview with Bloomberg reporters and editors.

Customers of the online brokerage have expressed interest in being able to monitor what their fellow investors on the platform are buying and selling in real time, and the firm is exploring its options, he said.

“We hear the desire to have some of that data available again,” said Tenev, who’s also co-chief executive officer. “We want to make sure we have all the proper safeguards and the data is actually being presented in an accurate way that’s not confusing or misleading.”

Companies are making some changes for employees health insurance amid the pandemic

More coverage for virtual doctors’ visits. Expanded mental health benefits. Access to on-site health clinics.

As employees sign up for job-based coverage for 2021, they’ll find the coronavirus pandemic has changed some of the benefits that their companies are providing, experts said.

And they’ll also see their premiums and out-of-pocket costs increase about 5%, which is more than wages and inflation have been rising, according to the Business Group on Health, which surveys large employers.

This bump comes on top of a 4% increase in premiums this year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s annual employer health benefits survey. In 2020, the average annual premiums hit nearly $7,500 for single coverage and $21,500 for family coverage. Deductibles stayed roughly the same at about $1,650 for a single person.

One of the biggest changes for 2021 will be a growth in the number and types of virtual care options, said Steve

Cardi B, Bella Thorne, Blac Chyna and Other Celebs Are Making Insane Money From OnlyFans

Cardi B WAP

Like Instagram, adult site OnlyFans could be helping celebrities like Blac Chyna, Bella Thorne, Cardi B and more accumulate insane supplementary income. Online casino SlotsUp attempted to calculate the the paywalled platform’s potential top earners with some wildly speculative methodology: 

“We’ve combined their Instagram followers with the average monthly subscription price, and taken off OnlyFans 20% commission to estimate what each of these stars could be earning,” the SlotsUp website reads. 

Thanks for watching!

The exact formula wasn’t explained explicitly, but the general idea seems to be that those with massive Instagram followings could make huge money by driving a fraction of said followers to OnlyFans. BroBible notes that a sufficiently popular celeb could make $12 million in a year if just 50,000 paid $20 for a monthly OnlyFans subscription.
