There is no Minor League in business.
— 

A cruel truth about business: different to the world of sports there is no fairness. 

If you start a company in your garage - you don’t compete with all the garage companies in the town or the country…

From the first day on you swim with the sharks. 

All unicorns, Fortune500 enterprises, old money, the syndicates and undercover organizations, … - they all operate right next to you. 

Most of the times you might get away by being overlooked. But once in while you might find yourself eye to eye… 

Try to be aware of - but not intimidated by that.

How to still have a chance:

  • don’t panic.
  • find your niche and exploit it.
  • understand your customer better than anyone else.
  • be fast and really good.
  • build a love band.
  • Understand staying in business as a form of success.

Not too sure what happened to this spread, but it reminds me of the stickers that I give my younger tutoring students… 🐚also, why did I think that I would have less to write in my bujo in the summer?? I have SO much going on that I can hardly keep track! Thursday alone I had two interviews (one for part-time nannying, which I pretty much got on the spot, and one at Winners that I will hear back about next week)… next week I am meeting new tutoring students on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, plus I recently got the opportunity to do some promotional work for really good pay but super long hours in the hot sun. At this point I’m not even sure what to say yes and what to say no to!!!

Curiosity Stroked the Cat

Request: “Ok ok hear me out, what if Peter is out with Ned, and comes back home later to see that the reader is wearing his suit, and gets immensely turned on. Is this even possible to make? Cause I’d live for this!”

Pairing: Peter Parker x Reader

Word Count: 2.7k

Warnings: Smut

Snuggling a little tighter into your jacket as the chilly breeze sifted through the streets of Brooklyn, you turned the corner to find yourself in front of Peter’s apartment block. It was becoming a common occurrence to end up here after you had decided to get fresh air to think, your feet always managing to lead you to the greatest source of comfort in your life. After learning about his big secret, it had just felt so much easier to lay your own out on the table, since there was nothing in your life that surpassed the severity of holding on to a secret identity that important.  

So, tugging your heavy boots into the front foyer and up the stairs, with a light rap at the door, Peter’s Aunt was greeting you with a warm smile.

THE BEST FRIENDS

Meryl Streep, Penny Marshall, and Carrie Fisher

Photographed by Art Schreiber at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles on December 2, 1996.

Friendship is the recess from the graduate school of life. My friendship with Penny and Meryl has the sense of a secret handshake of shared sensibility, of shared history. Penny is disgruntled, courageous, and funny.
Meryl is maternal, grounded, funny, and so loyal it’s impossible for you to hate her for her talent, her long marriage, her many children, or her beauty, which seems unlikely to dimish anytime soon.

We three are in the same business in three different ways, though we originally started out in the same union. Penny and I changed careers in midstream around the same time and branched off into work behind the camera; Meryl remains luminous and astonishing before the lens. Penny and I are suspicious party throwers, exhausted workaholics who understand each other through various overlapping idiosyncrasies; we finish, if not anticipate, each other’s sentences.
Meryl’s empathy runs rampant; she never loses faith in her friends’ ability to bend back into shape. Or her ability to speak in shorhand and silence. I have been sustained by these women through adverse times and personal difficulties. We play for fun and for keeps till the bell rings.

My friend Ed Moses said years ago that there were tribes who roamed the earth and each one ahd a magic person, even in as unlikely a place as show business, the capital of opportunism, ulterior motives, what someone can do for you instead of with gratitude. My friends, my close friends are my family, my kin. We worry when we feel that one of us is not doing well; we revel in one another’s successes. Both these broads wear my ring, share a mutual masseuse and, yes, even a tendency to gossip. These chicks are born stars. And their aim is true.

Frank Ocean's dad sues him over his Tumblr response to the Pulse shooting
The singer claimed his dad directed a homophobic slur at a transgender waitress.

Last summer, after 49 people were killed at Pulse in Orlando, Frank Ocean wrote a Tumblr post in response detailing his experiences with homophobia. In the post, he alleges that his father called a transgender waitress a “f*ggot” when Frank was 6 and “dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.”

Ocean’s father, Calvin Cooksey, has filed a defamation lawsuit against his son over the post, seeking $14.5 million in damages.

Cooksey reportedly claims that Ocean fabricated the incident and that the note cost him business opportunities in film and music. This isn’t the first multi-million lawsuit Cooksey has pursued. In 2014, he filed a $142 million lawsuit against hip-hop entrepreneur Russell Simmons for characterizing him as a “deadbeat dad” on the website Global Grind.

Thinking Like an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurial thinking requires that you view the world differently. You can learn to view situations from a different perspective by observing and listening carefully. Business opportunities are everywhere; you just have to learn how to recognize them when you come across them.  How would you solve these three problems?

  1. Check out your community. Are there problems that people are always complaining about? Can you think of a creative way to resolve the problem?
  2. Check out your friends. How do they use certain products? Do they have to make adjustments? Do they use them for other purposes? Do you have an idea for a more convenient use?
  3. Do you have younger brothers and sisters? What annoys them? Is there a business idea that would meet their needs/wants that would also meet other kids their age?

anonymous asked:

What do you think slytherins would be like finding out their friends ditched them on an important date to go do something else? (for instance a milestone birthday or a celebration of success being ditched for another birthday or even just other people) Im just curious

• they’d try to act like they don’t care first, cos we gotta uphold that No Emotions™ image

• so they’d like smile and be like ‘yeah sure no problem, I’ll just go by myself’ but they’re actually super pissed about it

• pettiness level 100000. literally whenever that friend wants something from them in the future they’ll bring up how they ditched them on that important day.

• may or may not unfollow their friend on every social media (‘oh i see, NOW you care about what I do’)

• will not text the person back for at least a week, because they’re 'busy’

• gleefully awaits the opportunity to ditch their friend, because paybacks a bitch

• will not tell their friend they’re pissed off like EVER even though everyone can clearly see that they are

• they will get over it at some point, but don’t expect it to happen anytime soon

Harry Styles’ Natal Chart Analysis

So many of you have been asking me to do this forever and I finally finished it and decided to post it! It’s quite long but quite worth the read.  (And very interesting.  Especially if you want to see what you have in common with him!) 

A general note: none of this is written from any bias or from what we as fans already know. It was taken from websites and books that I own, as well as my own knowledge of the signs and how they affect a person.  Read this willing to note the positive AND negative aspects of his personality. 

Please feel free to ask me any questions about my own personal feelings/interpretations of this, or chime in with your own! 

Without further ado and below the cut, here is… the Natal Chart of Harry Styles.

anonymous asked:

I came to ask for hartwin fic recs and saw your ask box caption and now I'm laughing while typing coz I finally decided to descend into hartwin hell after sitting in sidelines for years and appreciating artworks, so this will be my first time reading hartwin fics, and your dressing room #1 is free, yea, what are the absolute must read hartwin fics? (fandom classic or not, doesn't matter) Thanks in advance :)

Dressing Room #1 is always free, oh yeaaaah. ;)

And welcome to the wonderful world of Hartwin fanfic! You are in for a treat. I went on a massive Hartwin binge when I first got into fandom and literally failed to bookmark anything I read, so sadly my list will be fairly small.

First, I am going to start by suggesting you read anything and everything by: AnnaofAza, futuredescending, fideliant, and missbecky. I can’t even choose my favourites among them–all are beautifully told renditions and views of Hartwin, ranging from the downright angsty to bittersweet to fluff-filled toe-curling happiness we all want for them. Close your eyes, pick a fic from these four and I promise you will be happy with your choice :)

I don’t know about fandom classics: I know there are a few that have become quite popular but sadly I haven’t read them (mostly because of time–some of those guys are massive) so I can’t vouch for them but their popularity gives them credence :) 

Here are a few of my current faves:

Pin-Up by moonflowers

Rated M. Harry falls in love with a pin-up model from one of those cheesy calendars. He ends up meeting said model and promptly loses the ability to function like a normal human being. Hilarious, sweet and a wonderful slow build that had me giggling and squirming in my seat.

Follow Me Out, Across The Stars by sassafrasx

Rated M. Eggsy has some serious hero worship for astronaut/explorer Harry Hart. This all comes to a head when Eggsy is picked to join Kingsman in their next mission. Copious amounts of flirting, getting caught masturbating and mutual pining galore. Excellent pacing and humour and SPACE!!

Buy Me Something Pretty by Regency

Rated T. Sugar Daddy Harry and Sugar Baby Eggsy but with a twist. I love their dynamic in this, how they approach it as a business opportunity and how they catch feelings in the aftermath. An interesting dynamic and Roxy and Eggsy’s friendship in this is great.

cannon fodder by ViolyntFemme

Rated E. What if Eggsy was sent to Kentucky instead of Harry? What if it was Harry left behind, thinking Eggsy was dead, ruminating with grief and regret on their last fight? An excellent retelling of canon events that sheds light on Harry’s vulnerability, employs excellent use of side characters and traitorous agents, and Harry and Merlin’s dialogue is superb.

Broken Crown by Damned_Writers

Rated M (warning for depictions of war and PTSD). I haven’t yet finished it (it is so dense and really heart wrenching so I am still taking my time with it) but literally one of my favourite fics I have read in a long time. Harry is prince-turned King of England, Eggsy is the gardener. They meet when Harry thinks Eggsy is trespassing on royal property. What follows is a whirlwind romance set agains the backdrop of WW2, misunderstandings and uncertainties, how duty and responsibility and war draw them apart and back together. The writing is masterful, lyrical and the way they write Harry and Eggsy… it has literally made me cry. I adore it so much, even if it kills me. Influences from The King’s Speech and Testament of Youth.

under my skin (tried so not to give in) by venvephe

Rated E. Eggsy uses kissing Harry on missions as a diversion tactic. Then it stops becoming a diversion tactic and just an excuse to Eggsy to snog Harry. 

Okay, so my rec list is hella lame and I apologize. But I am going to tag @thisbirdhadflown for two reasons: so they can give more recs if they so wish and for everyone to check out their blog because they are doing the lord’s work. They rec Kingsman fics a lot. In separate posts and in once-a-month posts. They don’t just focus on Hartwin either so you get a bit of everything. I hope my paltry list gets you started! :)

It’s Deeper than Some Damn Tee Shirts*********


It seems as though all anyone is ever talking about these days are the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The family rose to fame through a series of public moments, including a sex tape featuring the most talked about daughter, Kim Kardashian. Perhaps the most influential source of their fame stems from their reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s.” Additional business opportunities, like cosmetics deals and clothing companies, have emerged through the success of their show, which leads us to where we are now. Although the girls have always been discussed in some manner, lately the conversation has turned from how outrageous their antics are to highlight, what many believe to be, their blatant and unrepentant attempts to seize much of the black culture.

Recently, Kendall and Kylie Jenner posted vintage style musician tee shirts to their online clothing site, with the likeness of artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Ozzy Osbourne. It would have been a harmless, even reverential gesture had they not decided to place photos of themselves over the images. Not only did they receive a massive amount of backlash from Hip Hop fans in particular, the move provoked a counter blast from Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace. She took to Instagram, along with Suge Knight, to express her immense feelings of disgust towards the Jenner’s for failing to contact her, or Tupac’s estate, for permission to create clothing that features her deceased son. Suge Knight chimed in to support Ms. Wallace, also taking the time to send a direct message to Kylie’s ex Tyga about his uncondoned use of Knight’s ‘Death Row’ logo for his own personal clothing line. After witnessing such a catastrophic out poor of negative feedback, it’s very hard to believe that the two didn’t see this one coming.

In an effort to stop the bleeding, the girls pulled the tees from their online site and had their attorney’s draft a formal apology, which they promptly posted to their social media outlets. Unfortunately for Kendall and Kylie, the damage had already been done, and on one too many occasions. If we have ever given them the benefit of the doubt, how long should that courtesy be extended? If it’s not defacing black icons, it’s using lingo and wearing fashion (not to mention companion preference) from the heritage. It can often be difficult to use the word ‘appropriation’ in a situation like this because it implies that another’s culture was “borrowed” when, in fact, it was taken without notice and devoid of acknowledgement for who gave birth to it. Now, the idea that one must clear permission to utilize a fashion statement from a specific culture is ridiculous, but what’s even more preposterous is trying to rename and rebrand that which was never yours to begin with. It’s like using toilet tissue for the first time and loving it so much you decide to call it “ass paper” and tell your friends you invented it. There is no way this world would allow anyone to overlook Joseph Gayetty’s contribution to society. Sounds like a good old fashioned double standard.

As often as African-American’s love to invite other races to “the cookout,” it has remained obvious that many of us enjoy seeing others properly appreciating our culture, but when they become too bothered by the idea of acknowledging where their inspiration originated, many will feel the need to question that individual’s underlying issue with voicing their admiration for what we do and how we do it. As for the rest of us, that courtesy was short lived and passed long ago. We peep the process.

Song Challenge / Avengers / Full Masterlist


“Three…two…one,” You smiled when the alarm started to go off. You were already blocks away from the alarm, and it was one of the easier robberies. That store gets robbed a lot, they should really look into security.

You stopped when you landed on the roof of the place you claimed as your home, not that it was much, though. You watched the sun rise and took a bite from the bread you just stole from the store, the amusement of seeing the cop cars coming around the corners to get to the blaring alarm. You’ve got to be the best thief New York has ever seen. Young enough to pass off as a million characters, easy to hide, and you know everything there is to know about New York.

You jumped down the hatch to your small home that no one knew existed. It was the attic of an apartment building that has restricted access at the door, but no one went in the doors anyway; so you have heat, air conditioning, and if you sneak around, a bathroom.

“Getting into trouble a little early today, aren’t we, (Y/N)?” You heard the cunning and deep voice who loved to tease you.

You laughed and split the bread in half. “You’re only in trouble if you get caught,” You snapped, a smirk on your face. “Want some bread?”
