How stories influence work & play (Molly Zeff, CEO Flying Leap Games + Rich Lovejoy, Actor)

Imagine that you live in a home that’s all synced up to the Internet of Things. You can turn on the lights with a snap and use your voice to control anything in your house. The only problem is….your vacuum has started going haywire. The whole house is going nuts, and you’re pretty sure your neighbor is to blame. Well, technically you might be to blame since you’ve been using his wifi, although that’s a technicality. But the question is….what do you do? And how is a human pancreas...


How to work from home productively (Hilary Sutton, Author and Host of "Hustle and Grace")

Why should men advocate for women in the workplace? (Krystina Banahasky, CDO & Zephan Fischl, VP Sales)

Every single professional woman I know has at least one story about being treated differently in the workplace because of her gender or ethnicity.

The wage gap is real. I could go on, and it’s easy to think that if it hasn’t happened to you, it’s not your problem. How can YOU make a positive difference as an...


How can I negotiate my salary? (Krystina Banahasky, CDO & Zephan Fischl, VP Sales)

How confident are you in a salary negotiation? Most people shy away from negotiation out of fear. Fear of losing the job, fear of being seen as pushy, fear of rejection….the list goes on.

But I know it’s much easier said than done, which is why I’ve...
