What’s the most serious threat to the country’s economic recovery? According to Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg, one possibility is breastfeeding mothers. He recently ranted about the fact that President Obama’s health care bill requires what Stemberg called “lactation chambers” for new mothers who need to breastfeed on the job. “Do you want [farming retailer] Tractor Supply to open stores or would you rather they take their capital and do what Obamacare and its 2,700 pages dictates – which is to open a lactation chamber at every single store that they have?” Careful, Tom.

Actress Cate Blanchett once said, “You know you’ve made it when you’ve been molded into miniature plastic.” She was referring to the figure Tonner Doll created to look like her character Galadriel in The Lord of The Rings movies. Sadly, most of us will never star in a multi-billion dollar box-office hit about hobbits. So, for us civilians, I’d say you’ve made it when you are given an assistant. More
I wake up most weekday mornings wondering where I am and who I’m with.
Where am I working today? In the office of the startup I write for? In a different office of a different startup I write (differently) for? Or am I working from home on different projects with the same deadline?
Even before I became a full-time freelancer, I considered myself a job slut. In my last year of college, I was accepted into Teach For America and committed two years to teaching in New York City. When I was told to accept a job without ever interviewing, I bailed. I went to a career fair and got my own teaching position, which I accepted after visiting the school. More
