Within one week’s time, two veteran journalists have lost their jobs over sexual harassment claims – first, CBS This Morning’s Charlie Rose, and, more recently, The Today Show’s Matt Lauer.

Looking Forward to 2050

Mark Zuckerberg was still in high school and was a good four years away from starting Facebook. Heck, even Myspace hadn’t been invented yet. Obviously, a lot’s changed since then, and it’s…

Marketing for Locations, Locations, Locations

When a business does its marketing well, it’s nearly impossible to hear that business’s name without automatically thinking about its brand identity. For example, Southwest Airlines is practically shorthand for great customer service.
