I'm writing about EEP because the people mentioned above are family and friends. Vince is my son. It breaks my heart to see
PARIS - At the COP21 Paris Climate summit I attended a remarkable event by two young polar researchers. From the north, Dr
But there’s a problem with all those scenarios: The lawsuit predates the raise.
As I read through the court record and media reports, I began to see how Price was writing his own origin myth one interview
"Everybody's an entrepreneur and can be innovative."
The truth is, our peers, friends, family and staff can provide helpful insight, and you don't want to discount the importance of their advice. But, you also want to seek out formal trusted advisors who have a deep understanding of your business, along with the wisdom you need to compensate for your blind spots.
It was a noble idea, but folks aren't buying it.
My advice for newcomers: skip the pundits and lean in to innovative change agents -- the "makers" who work across the spectrum of business, arts, education and politics. You know an event is a success when your hope for the future is renewed.

April 2015 was noteworthy for reasons having nothing to do with the income tax. On April 19, 2015, Dan Price, the CEO of a company called Gravity Payments, a credit card processing company located in Seattle, Washington, announced that he was cutting his own salary.
We share Rush Limbaugh's fantasy that one day Dan Price's decision to drastically cut his own pay will be written up as a case study for MBA students. The difference is that we hope that it will be taught as an example of visionary leadership in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
By the end of this year, no Gravity Payments employee will make less than $50,000 per year, and by the end of 2017, that number will be $70,000. While there's no doubt that there will be unintended consequences of this bold move, it's important to workers everywhere for a number of reasons.

When a business owner decides on a wage policy for his employees, that is something that only happens in capitalism. In socialism, the government doesn't just set a minimum wage; it determines all wages.
You've undoubtedly heard that CEO Dan Price recently decided to cut his own salary in order to help finance a radical experiment in employee pay: everyone who works for Gravity Payments, based in Seattle, will now make $70,000/year.
