By Ivani Greppi
In his bestselling book, "Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success," Adam M. Grant writes that success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others.

The book highlights the effectiveness of networking and collaboration versus individual focus on success.

This workplace advice for women is actually a terrible idea
Business Insider
A couple of weeks ago, Business Insider published a post by Ellen Petry Leanse, a former Apple and Google employee. The gist of it was that people (read: women) should stop saying the word "just" so often because it hurts their credibility in the workplace. So far, the post has more than 3 million views. Unfortunately, research doesn't bear out her conclusion, and the advice might hurt women more than it helps them.

Entrepreneur
The National Sleep Foundation, along with numerous sleep specialists, have a bevy of hacks up their sleeves to help you achieve better, deeper, higher-quality sleep. Unfortunately, not all of these tricks are suited to the entrepreneurial lifestyle. For example, you may find it impossible to stick to the same sleep schedule every night, especially when you sometimes work five hours, sometimes 20, and like most entrepreneurs are traveling all over the world trying to secure partnerships and investors.
