How to make yourself unforgettable
Fast Company
Deep down, we all just want to be remembered. In today's distraction-filled world, it's easier said than done. The average adult has 360 messages coming at them each day via TV, radio, Internet, newspapers and magazines, according to a study by Media Dynamics. Less than half are noted and far fewer make enough of an impact to be recalled. If you're trying to stand out in the midst of that chaos, you've got your work cut out for you.

Women entrepreneurs don't need to go at it alone
CNBC
Even before starting a family, Brittney Castro worried that someday she might feel forced to choose between her career and her children, a dilemma to which many working parents can relate. So in late 2012, she left her job as a financial planner at an advisory firm and launched her own practice. Castro has a lot in common with other female entrepreneurs. Women are starting businesses at a rapid rate these days, and many are partly motivated by a desire for greater control and flexibility in their work lives.

How customer interaction can improve your business
Business 2 Community
No plan survives first contact with the enemy. Similarly, few businesses can survive the first contact with a customer if they aren't well-prepared. Smart entrepreneurs and business owners should know that as soon as they open their doors to customers, they are subjected to changes in the very fabric of their business. Customers will call, customers will interact and customers will even vent at you. But the truth is, each interaction provides information about how your company can do better.

2015's best and worst cities for starting a career
WalletHub
The struggles endured in recent years by America's young people pale in comparison to those suffered by their peers in Spain and Greece, where youth unemployment in excess of 50 percent has spawned great social unrest. Still, finding a job in the U.S. — let alone laying the foundation for a long and prosperous career — is far from simple. But there's reason for optimism among the graduating class of 2015 and the scores of young people so disillusioned with the job market that they've given up their search for employment.

Women started smaller percentage of US businesses in 2014
The Wall Street Journal
The share of new businesses started by women fell last year to its second lowest level in nearly two decades, a sign that the entrepreneurial gender gap widened last year. Women opened just 36.8 percent of new U.S. businesses in 2014, according to new data. That is down from an average of 40.7 percent over the last 19 years — and almost at the low point of 36.7 percent reached in 2007.
