1. Sensible financial advice to keep mindful of, especially the one below.

Buy a collection of low-cost investments like index funds, which will track different certain segments of the stock and bond markets, that provide exposure to businesses around the world. The most important factor is coming up with the right mix of aggressive investments (stocks) and conservative ones (bonds) that you can stomach…

1. Hollywood is starting to re-examine the stereotypical bad feminist boss — but jury’s still.

Often they are conceived of as good at their jobs but bad at being human, like Miranda Priestly of “The Devil Wears Prada.” Though they are pitched as evidence of feminist progress, they don’t act like feminists. And their preferred targets are young women who hope, some day, to claim power, too.

Trying to catch up on all the reads that are bookmarked before I go on vacation this year. There’s something about the year ending and starting the new year that makes these posts a bit more urgent and time-sensitive.

1. Appalled to see how much digital strategist / influencer makes on a weekly basis.

2. Long story about hidden e-commerce network with an unsatisfying ending. Maybe this is why white collar criminals are rampant with their schemes – the consequences of their actions is nothing compared to the potential gains.Read More »
