LinkedIn is widely known as the professional social network. So, it would make sense for people to assume that it is largely for B2B companies. While it is true that LinkedIn is one of the most beneficial social networks when it comes to B2B, the Social Equity a brand can garner as a result of having a LinkedIn presence - whether it is B2B or B2C - is quite high.

It is not required to reach those questions in the case at bar, however, since the short answer to the District Attorney's contention is that grand larceny in the second degree has not been joined with anything either in the waiver of indictment or the superior court information in this matter; rather, it has been substituted for the offense for which the defendant was held by the Long Beach Court.

The Oregon Bankruptcy Court’s recent ruling in In Re Watt requires a mortgage holder to accept title to a home surrendered in chapter 13 bankruptcy. Prior to In Re Watt, a borrower could surrender a home in Chapter 13 bankruptcy but wait for months, if not years, on end while the mortgage lender took its time foreclosing on the property. This was a particularly cruel fate for Oregon debtors with ongoing HOA obligations, but really a hardship for just about any Oregon homeowner/Chapter 13 debtor hoping to walk away from a property and really start over. Oregon… [read post]

WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU ABOUT EGG-FREEZING: “I am a former patient of three clinics in the Bay area, all of which were happy to sell me services as long as I could pay the bill. I had multiple fresh and frozen embryo transfers. Instead of taking home a baby, I came away with tremendous heartache. And my experience is not unique. Around the world, there are an estimated 1.5 million IVF procedures each year, and 1.2 million fail.” Related: “Women are now using technology to try to make themselves seem as much like man as possible…” [read post]

A lot is written about the first mover advantage – identifying trends early and pursuing them before competitors.   It’s a great concept and makes for some great consultant and academic articles (I know, I’ve written some of them).  But saying it is one thing, doing it is another.
