Old school is in session…

Old school is in session…

Communities matter when belonging is about the community and not “me”

Invest in relationships. Appreciate people who bring value to you and your network. At the same time, ensure you’re surrounded by people who also appreciate you. It’s how you’ll get to where you’re going whether solo or with a little help from your friends.

1) Embrace technology to lead it rather than react to it.

2) Build meaningful relationships, don’t just network to work your way upward.

3) Become part of the community, invest in it and don’t just take from it.

4) Give freely because you want to…because it’s where you can add value.

5) Earn what you deserve.

Please take a moment to watch what I hope is a refreshing discussion…

Taxi drivers claim to have lost 30 to 40 percent of their business because of Ridesharing

Just received this note from a team representing the taxi industry to highlight their side of the story…

A chosen group of licensed taxicab drivers in Palo Alto are expected to gather today at city hall to protest the April 2nd public hearing that will determine whether or not “ridesharing” companies such as Uber and Lyft will be allowed to operate. Since the launch of these “ridesharing” companies in Palo Alto, taxi drivers claim to have lost 30 to 40 percent of their business.

Some key messages that the drivers would like to express include:

What’s your take?
