    How to Present Complicated Information That Anyone Can Understand

    We’ve become a world that communicates in two-minute sound bites and 140 characters, but how can anyone expect you to explain complex information so quickly and concisely?Well, they do – and you can.Many of those who work with complex information believe it can’t be done, and hence we have the mind-numbing, jargon-riddled, overloaded PowerPoint presentations that do little to engage or inform. That can be frustrating for everyone involved, and even disastrous for your career or company if a boss or customer ignores what you’re trying to tell them.So how do you present complicated information that anyone can understand?Just as you would any other information. It needs to be clear, concise and told in a compelling way. Just because the information is…

    What It's Like To Be Part Of New York's Most Renowned Public Speaking Club

    Every Monday night, a group of investment bankers, attorneys, entrepreneurs, and other aspirational leaders gathers in a quaint private social club in midtown Manhattan to go over the finer points of public speaking. They are members of the New York Toastmasters club, a local chapter of Toastmasters International, an organization of 14,350 speaking clubs across 122 countries. The group is currently 55 strong and has a large waiting list for new members. When asked how they found out about the club, most members mentioned a boss, coworker, or graduate school professor. Toastmasters provides amateur speakers a place to overcome the natural fear of public speaking and provides more confident speakers a chance to learn proper technique. "Toastmasters is where you go to screw up,"…

    Professional Networking: This Is How You Do It

    Sometimes the idea of professional networking is daunting. Emily demystifies this critical career development skill by showing us how it’s done. Her keys to success? Fearlessness and persistence. A winning combination. – InPower Editors Last week I spoke to 4,000 women. Two back-to-back sessions at the Massachusetts Conference for Women with 2,000 attendees each. It was incredible. Exhilarating. Amazing. And – I should also mention – the crowd wasn’t there to see me. They came for Cathie Black. New York Times bestselling author.

    29 Money Lessons Every High School Graduate Should Know

    A financial literacy test given by the National Financial Educator's Council found that test-takers from 15-18 years old scored an average of only 59.6%. No matter what they're learning in school, most young Americans are lost when it comes to managing their money. That's why we put together a basic guide to financial facts and concepts that will come in handy no matter where you're headed next. This list is by no means exhaustive, because there's no end to the things you can learn about money. It doesn't include points about considerations like mortgages and 401(k)s and long term care insurance, because those are things that can wait, at least for a little while.

    Why More MBAs Are Becoming Entrepreneurs Straight Out Of Business School

    A decade ago, nearly all b-school grads flocked to traditional corporate jobs in finance and management. Today, however, a growing number of newly minted MBAs decide to start their own businesses or go to work for Silicon Valley startups.  In one study of over 30,000 Wharton graduates, conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, researchers found that more than 7% of 2013 grads started their own companies right away — five times as many as in 2007. They also discovered that, since 1990, nearly a quarter of Wharton grads have been entrepreneurs at some point, even if it wasn't straight out of school.  Ethan Mollick, coauthor of the study and an entrepreneurship professor at Wharton, predicts that this growth is likely to continue. "MBA students are good at…

    Why is binge-TV watching worth your time?

    I admit, I'm perplexed. I'm constantly told by people that they don't have enough time to read newspapers, exercise, keep up with friends, travel. Yet, people who struggle to find work life balance have huge chunks of time to binge TV watch. I wondered how and why they are getting the time and I set out this week in my Miami Herald column to find out....   Binge-watching TV: an escape zone?       Many workers say that on their time off, marathon viewing sessions of television shows is a pleasurable way to keep the world at bay.   (Above: Breaking Bad) BY CINDY KRISCHER GOODMAN BALANCEGAL@GMAIL.COM On a rainy Saturday in South Florida, Gabriela Garcia lay in her bed watching another episode ofCastle.

    13 Things Successful Millennials Do In Their Spare Time

    We all define "success" differently, but most millennials associate it with happiness, good health, a strong social network, and a well-balanced life.   According to experts, how you spend your downtime as a 20- or 30-something plays a huge part in your ability to achieve these things.  "If you take time to recharge and pay attention to fitness and your diet, for example, after work or on weekends, you'll set the stage for great life habits that put you at the top of your game at the office," says Lynn Taylor, author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job."

    MOOCs: The Best Way to Learn Anything? And They’re Cheap or Free!

    Regular readers of this blog know that I believe that the most cost- and time-efficient way to learn is to read articles (largely emanating from Google searches) perhaps guided by a mentor.  I view the course, let alone the degree, as overrated because courses teach masses of content, much of which you don’t need or will have forgotten when needed, at a level and pace defined by the teacher, not you. That said, many people need the structure of school to stay motivated and/or want a piece of paper to show employers that they’ve taken X courses. For such people, I believe that  Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) may be a wise option. And that’s not…

    An alternative path to self-acceptance

    This post takes place in Beverly Hills. I’m just going to tell you right now that I go there to get Botox. If anyone is surprised, I’ll be surprised. The path to self-acceptance is paved with injectables. Step 1: Try to change yourself. I was going to write a big post about how I’m confessing to getting Botox and then I thought better of it, that it would make me look too old. Then I thought maybe it’ll make me look rich. Because honestly, Botox is really expensive and it’s not just Botox but also fillers. I don’t even know what the brand is. I just go to the dermatologist and say “make me look younger.” Well, actually it’s not the dermatologist. It…

    Women Are Already Underrepresented On Major Film Crews, And The Numbers Are Getting Worse

    Though female participation in the overall labor force has increased over the past two decades, Hollywood is still the boys' club it has always been. In fact, there are actually fewer women working on major motion pictures today than there were in 1994, according to a new report compiled by the writer and film producer Stephen Follows. Follows looked at the crews behind the top 100 grossing films in each of the past 20 years and found that female participation dropped from 22.7% in 1994 to 21.8% in 2013, without showing much fluctuation in either direction. Another troubling fact from the report is that the major creative roles — writer, producer, and director — continue to be dominated by men. In 2013, women accounted for just…

    The One Thing You Need To Know Before Choosing A Business School

    Associated PressThere are some 711 business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.  That's less than 5% of the worldwide total.  Clearly, not all b-schools are created equal, as you can see from the scads of rankings that come out every year.  But when you're winnowing down choices for where to nab that MBA, there's one crucial thing to consider: the networking.  In a Reddit thread titled "What you wish you had known before going to BSchool," user NWmba fills us in on why:  The difference between a cheaper and a more expensive school tends to be the prestige of the people at them (professors, students). A good chunk of b-school is the networking, so keep that in mind. The majority of your…

    This Mindset Can Prevent You From Succeeding At Work

    Whether it's graduating from law school, landing a new job, or watching your business finally turn a profit, almost everyone experiences that moment when they think, "I made it."  However, this mindset can actually be detrimental to future successes — especially at work. Philip Blackett, founder of Magnetic Interviewing, LLC, explains in a recent LinkedIn post that once you've achieved your ultimate goal, it's tempting to simply coast instead of searching for new goals. "The moment when you say 'I made it' ... is the moment that likely will lead you into complacency," he says. Shifting your mindset from constantly pushing forward to feeling like you've reached the top puts your career on cruise control. Instead of looking for ways to grow and improve, you're prone to sit back…
