NO HATE – Time to work

The elections are finally over, and we have a new President, Donald Trump. Whatever you thought it might not happen, happened. A candidate outside of the political arena won and became the most powerful man on earth. Regardless if you are a liberal, conservative or non-partisan you have to agree, the comparisons cannot be made with Donald Trump and any other President, such a candidate has never been seen in the history of the United States nor any other country.

To my mistake and surprise, Mr. Jones is actually one of the founders of Travelocity and Kayak; so in a sense, he has developed businesses that market travel. Mr. Jones is in the business of facilitating the where and the when behind consumer choices, but he discussed the increasing importance for businesses to assess the self-reflexive why that drives consumer decisions. Businesses must break down … [Read more...]
