How To Keep It Together At Work When Your Personal Life Is A Mess

How To Keep It Together At Work When Your Personal Life Is A Mess | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

We’ve all been there, even if you don’t want to admit it. It’s life.

Invest in Your Network and Your Network Will Invest in You

Invest in Your Network and Your Network Will Invest in You | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

In this 99U talk, hacker and author Joshua Klein shares how technology and growing “black markets” are optimizing our world for relationships. But building authentic relationships takes work. As a result, we need to be generous with our talents and time and invest in those around us (and then they’ll invest in us).
