A quick glance at most postgraduate studies on income seems to confirm what most people already believe; that STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) majors are by and large the most profitable fields of study. Inversely, many humanities majors such as English, History, Philosophy, and Religion, often struggle to find both employment and higher paying salaries by comparison. In line with these benefits, the popularity of STEM majors is skyrocketing, experiencing rapid growth in the...

Entrepreneurs have always been important drivers of change in society. Hewlett-Packard was started in a small Palo Alto garage by two enterprising engineers. We already know the story of Facebook being started out of a college dorm room. Today, media has turned into a noisy environment. Media companies are driven by clicks (which in turn drive revenue). They put “Trump,” “Tesla,” “Facebook,” “SpaceX,” etc. in their headlines; they cover companies that are already well-known, companies...

There are thousands of articles that touch on the skills necessary for success in the business world. By now, you’ve learned countless times over that resilience is crucial to progress. You’ve learned that domain expertise is important to being genuinely good at what you do. You’ve learned that networking is important in the business world. These are pretty obvious, and you don’t need to read another article to understand the importance of hard work. An...

One of the most frustrating scenarios that entrepreneurs encounter is not being unable to sell their products or services. After constant attempts at running advertisements on Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms, entrepreneurs commonly go back to the drawing board and ponder why their prospective clients aren’t interested in what they’ve built. But the truth is, sometimes the issue of not being able to convert on advertising doesn’t actually even come from not having a good...

Steve Jobs is undoubtedly one of the most influential people of all time. Having started Apple in a time when smartphones seemed ridiculous, Jobs was by all means practically a man with a crystal ball. Steve said many interesting things, but perhaps the most profound of them all is “stay hungry, stay foolish,” as a part of Stanford University’s commencement speech back in 2005. Now, this saying is one of the most widely-recognized. So what...

As you progress in your career, you’ll find that you spend more time asking other people for information. At one moment you might find yourself requesting the status of a project from a project manager; at another moment you might be asking your team what they think about launching a new product idea; the bottom line is that you’ll be asking questions wherever you go, and it’s important that you make the most out of...

Principles are concepts that can be repeatedly applied across various situations. The most successful players in every game of life apply a core set of strategic principles that they use to win. In other words, principles are a set of methods used to deal with specific rules and directives of life. That’s why “the grind” is somewhat cliche; it places the emphasis on the work you’re doing, not why you’re doing it. Your principles are...

Technology and entrepreneurship are changing the world at a blistering pace. As startups and large corporations alike continue to have a large amount of funding and talent backing their work, it is easy for young entrepreneurs to lose hope in themselves ever developing something of value, something that’s capable of changing the world.  But at the same time, it is increasingly important for young people to hedge big risks in creating businesses that tackle some...

From time-to-time, I hear the saying “Your network is your net worth”. Though I do not completely agree with that statement because I do think that your “net worth” should be more so defined compositely by one’s competencies, domain knowledge, and their network, I do believe that networking and peopling are undervalued notions when business is initially introduced to students. Today, I share why it is important to foster long-term business relationships and how young...

In business, particularly with regards to startups and entrepreneurship, people learn by doing. Experience is what drives positive outcomes – it is what distinguishes one entrepreneur from another, what allows one entrepreneur to avoid pitfalls common to those who are inexperienced. But though it is important to gain experience from actually doing, another way to internalize experience is by learning from that of others, people we like to call mentors. These people could range in...
