Here is a regular reminder of things that went on last week that you may or may not have heard about. Just about everything is fair game, but I mostly concentrate on business and marketing related articles, materials and interesting nuggets. I also add my own take on it so that you can quickly determine if you want to read it.
This week’s theme revolves around the new year and some mindset changes. Enjoy and feel free to share.
Simon Sinek – the problem with Millennials | YOUTUBE

Twitter to start 360 Livestream through Periscope | MARKETINGDIVE
My Take: Follow the money. The biggest platforms are throwing billions of dollars behind their “right here, right now” live video. You need to be there. No one is looking anywhere else.

My Take: How will President-Elect Trump’s interest in privatizing air traffic control effect drones and their use in marketing and real estate? Should be interesting and could be less involvement from the Feds, but in either case knowing the new rules and laws could get you a step ahead of your competition.

My Take: A little off topic, but since it is the beginning of the new year and everyone is on their “new year, new me” kick, this is a good quick list of things NOT to do to be successful.
STAT OF THE WEEK: As of January 2016, 70% of the U.S. population had at least one social networking profile.
