Often, we mistakenly attribute business success to the innate abilities of those who achieve it. We assume that the skills of a Henry Ford, a Steve Jobs, or a Jeff Bezos are somehow hardwired into their DNA. But neuroscience research suggests that such an assumption can become a major obstacle to high performance. As Steven Snyder explains in the excerpt below, the real secret of success resides in people’s mind-set. He shows how a “fixed” mind-set that ascribes success to innate qualities is less resilient and adaptable than a “growth” mind-set that connects achievement to continuous learning and persistence.

Bill Gates richest tech czar, Premji tops in India :- America's technology sector remained a driving force for the world's billionaires, led by Microsoft's Bill Gates and other familiar names, a Forbes survey showed on Monday. Gates, the world's second richest individual on the Forbes list, saw his fortune rise by some $6 billion to $67 billion, but the magazine attributed this to his private equity and other holdings, not to Microsoft. That allowed Gates to widen his lead among tech billionaires over Oracle founder Larry Ellison, with a net worth of $43 billion -- making him number five overall on the Forbes list. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, number 19 overall on the list, was third in the tech sector with holdings valued at $25.2 billion. Google's chief executive Larry Page and co-founder Sergei Brin were close behind with $23 billion and $22.8 billion, respectively. Despite his company's woes, Dell founder Michael Dell held a fortune worth $15.3 billion, making him the sixth wealthiest tech billionaire. Micro ...

Strategy: IN BUSINESS, strategy is king. Leadership and hard work are all very well and luck is mighty useful, but it is strategy that makes or breaks a firm. Of course, it is easier to talk a good strategic game than it is to execute one. But don’t let that stop you absorbing these pithy words of wisdom from some of the business world's great strategic thinkers. “Speed, Price, Quality: Pick Two” Anon business adage “In civil business: what first? boldness; what second and third? boldness. And yet boldness is a child of ignorance and baseness, far inferior to other parts.” Francis Bacon (pictured), philosopher (1561–1626), Of Boldness “There are two ways to extend a business. Take inventory of what you’re good at and extend out from your skills. Or determine what your customers need and work backward, even if it requires learning new skills.” Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon (1964–) “There is something about the way that decisions get made in successful organisations that sows the seeds ...

If you work your way down the Forbes 400 making an x next to the name of each person with an MBA, you'll learn something important about business school. After Warren Buffett, you don't hit another MBA till number 22, Phil Knight, the CEO of Nike. There are only 5 MBAs in the top 50. What you notice in the Forbes 400 are a lot of people with technical backgrounds. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos, Gordon Moore. The rulers of the technology business tend to come from technology, not business. So if you want to invest two years in something that will help you succeed in business, the evidence suggests you'd do better to learn how to hack than get an MBA. Paul Graham

9 reasons you might buy the Kindle Fire HD instead of the iPad Dual stereo speakers with Dolby sound The Kindle Fire HD is the first tablet to have dual stereo speakers with Dolby Digital Plus. This should provide more balanced audio when listening to music and when watching films, while it also means you'll be able to listen to Dolby Digital Plus stereo sound without having to wear headphones. HDMI output It’s not a big advantage, but having a direct HDMI output will make it easier to hook the tablet up to your TV for watching HD movies. Apple's iPad can of course do the same, but only if you have an Apple HDMI convertor ($39) or use AirPlay with an Apple TV. Better WiFi Jeff Bezos talked up the Kindle Fire HD’s WiFi performance at the launch event, and said that the tablet has a dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi chip and two antennas, which should mean you’ll not block the signal if ‘you’re not holding it right’. Bezos went onto claim that the mix of the improved processor and WiFi specs s ...
All Americans treasure our democratic right to vote and to be able to make choices freely. As consumers and shareholders in the marketplace, we exercise these choices everyday.

Remarkable business leaders like Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates generously support this and LGBT rights. Companies like Starbucks, Amazon, Nike, Google, General Mills and others in this guide are aligned with equality for everyone. Take the time to enact your power with your wallet. Please do not support businesses, churches, or organizations that spend their time spreading hate. Support businesses, churches, and organization and spread equality and love.

technology giant Amazon has devised a new motion-sensor technology for an airbag that can protect your gadgets including smartphones, cameras and tablets from cracking when dropped. The system uses motion sensors, already built into most smartphones, to detect when a phone has been dropped and the mini airbag is then deployed before it hits the floor. A traditional airbag in cars is deployed upon impact, cushioning the passengers' heads as they are thrust forward. The phone system hopes to use similar techniques to prevent damage to the mobile upon inevitable impact. The idea is the brainchild of retail and technology giant Amazon, which has patented the protective system for mobile phones, electronic readers such as Amazon's own Kindle, computer tablets and cameras. This week the company won approval for the patent, which was filed in America by Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, 48, a self-made billionaire who has forged a career from pioneering ideas.

Just thinking... maybe we should be looking at resumes for a new person to run the federal budget. You know, someone who has been successful (Bill Gates, Steve Balmer, Jeff Bezos, the Waltons). I'm fairly certain that they have figured out that spending more than you take in is not a sound business decision. They also most likely don't print money in their basement (Federal Reserve) whenever they go broke. Just sayin. I wouldn't hire any of the current government people to handle my money (had I any).

These are possibly the five best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this country's current predicament 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

From Christian literary agent Chip MacGregor ChipMacGregor.com My Publishing Predictions for 2013 Posted: 31 Dec 2012 11:33 AM PST Okay, time for my big publishing predictions for 2013… 1. Some of the large publishers will buy up the smaller micro-publishers who have succeeded in niche markets. (This only makes sense. Penguin/Random House are merging, and want to expand their reach. Hachette is perhaps the most forward-thinking of the companies, and must see the opportunity. It’s possible HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster will combine forces, and they are two companies who have always sought to maximize niche markets. MacMillan does as well. So look for some of those guys who started in their garage a couple years ago to cash out.) 2. Literary agents will re-define themselves. (This has already begun to happen with some multi-person agencies. The growth of e-books and the opportunity authors have to self-publish means an agent, to demonstrate value, has to prove he or she can assist with self-publish ...
Jeff Bezos, who founded Amazon 16 years ago, is the second-best CEO on the planet, according to Harvard Business Review's latest rankings. Last month Fortune named him its Business Person of the Year.
Analysis: Amazon, Google on Collision Course in 2013 AN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – When Amazon.com Inc CEO Jeff Bezos got word of a project at Google Inc to scan and digitize product catalogs a decade ago, the seeds of a burgeoning rivalry were planted. The news was a “wake-up” call to Bezos, an early investor in Google. He saw it as a warning that the Web search engine could encroach upon his online retail empire, according to a former Amazon executive. “He realized that scanning catalogs was interesting for Google, but the real win for Google would be to get all the books scanned and digitized” and then sell electronic editions, the former executive said. Thus began a rivalry that will escalate in 2013 as the two companies’ areas of rivalry grow, spanning online advertising and retail to mobile gadgets and cloud computing. It could upend the last remaining areas of cooperation between the two companies. For instance, Amazon’s decision to use a stripped down version of Google’s Android system ...

Dear Amazon Fresh, I guess the question is this: How much does an individual customer mean to you? You answered it for me today and I MIGHT be overly angry, but I'll review after a bit and get back to you on that. Today, I am vowing to never use your services again. I ordered things for a very important gathering and the ONE THING that was very special wasn't included in the delivery. Late last night, I checked and the Trophy Cupcakes (chocolate with salted caramel) were there. I'm having a party for a much loved person and the cupcakes were a big deal. When I called you, you offered to see if you could get them delivered but sadly no. I bet if Jeff Bezos didn't get his important cupcakes, you would have found a way to deliver them, so see? It's the issue of how important I am/am not. I am reminded almost hourly that I don't matter much, and I am fed up to here [author points to her forehead] with feeling dismissed, so this is goodbye. I'm breaking up with you. It probably won't matter to you, but it's al ...

Like it or not we ALL change our mind, some more often than others... and it's NOT a bad thing. It's called learning and it NEVER stops... unless YOU make it stop. :-)
