Certainly, they aren’t exactly the same (resumes shouldn’t be written in a narrative style), but both share a few similarities: They tell the truth, differentiate you from others, highlight your most unique qualities and capture readers’ attention.

Oprah to the Class of 2019: Don’t wait for your ‘big break’

When Winfrey spoke to the Colorado College Class of 2019 on Sunday, she again gave practical advice. Yes, you need to look people in the eye when you speak to them. Winfrey also gave the students a sober reminder that their dreams won’t come true overnight. “I’m here to tell you that your life isn’t some big break, like everybody tells you that is,” she told the crowd. Winfrey stressed to the students that success, and service, takes time.

Oprah to the Class of 2019: Don't wait for your 'big break'

Oprah Winfrey has given a lot of graduation speeches.

In 2018, the media mogul emphasized to the University of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Class of 2018 the importance of working hard in their first jobs. When Winfrey spoke to the Colorado College Class of 2019 on Sunday, she again gave practical advice.

“Yes, it does pay to floss. Yes, you need to look people in the eye when you speak to them. You need to keep your commitments, you need to make your bed every day because when you do, it makes your whole house look better. And you need to leave your cell phone away at the dinner table,” she said.

Winfrey also gave the students a sober reminder that their dreams won’t come true overnight. “I’m here to tell you that your life isn’t some big break, like everybody tells you that is,” she told the crowd.

“It’s about taking one big life transforming step at a time,” said Winfrey. “But the truth is you cannot fix everything. What you can do here and now is make a decision — because life is about decisions — and the decision that you can make is to use your life in service.”

Winfrey stressed to the students that success, and service, takes time.

“The truth is, success is a process — you can ask anybody who’s been successful,” she said, pointing to successful restaurateur Danny Meyer, whose son was among the graduates.

After Trump tweet, UK spy agency says claim it spied on Trump is utterly ridiculous

Britain’s main eavesdropping agency on Wednesday said allegations that it had been asked by the Obama administration to spy on Donald Trump after the 2016 presidential election were utterly ridiculous and should be ignored. Trump on Wednesday tweeted that a former CIA analyst, Larry Johnson, had accused Britain of spying on the Trump campaign.

Hudson Yards may be the moment of truth for how online brands compete in the real world

At Hudson Yards, an 18-million-square-foot real estate development on the New York’s West Side, 1 million square feet will be devoted to retailers like Lululemon, Sephora, Louis Vuitton and Fendi.

Hudson Yards may be the moment of truth for how online brands compete in the real world

Brands born on the internet will have a home at Manhattan’s new mega mall.

At Hudson Yards, an 18-million-square-foot real estate development on the New York’s West Side, 1 million square feet will be devoted to retailers like Lululemon, Sephora, Louis Vuitton and Fendi. It will also include a space dedicated to brands that started online and are now starting to open storefronts, like shoemaker M.Gemi and sock retailer Stance.

In many ways, this will be the first time a shopping center has been built from ground up with online brands top of mind, giving them permanent and not just pop-up space. It will be a test to see if these brands have enough clout to generate buzz outside of their websites, lure shoppers and keep their landlords happy. On what Hudson Yard is calling the “Floor of Discovery” on the second level of the building, visitors will find all of these digitally savvy brands in one place, neighboring one another.

“The opportunity to construct a new retail development today does allow for the developer to logically lay out spaces for present times,” which includes these online brands, said Mark Kaplan, principal and chief operating officer at Ripco Real Estate, a New York-area brokerage firm. He views Hudson Yards as a “new-age mall,” where shoppers who have been seeing some of these up-and-coming retailers on their Instagram feeds can test products before buying them. “The internet can be a cheaper way to grow a business from 0 to 15 miles per hour, but you need a bricks-and-mortar strategy to supercharge it,” he said.

The born-on-the-internet brands — including men’s athletic apparel company Rhone and trendy beverage brand Dirty Lemon — opening up shop this week at Hudson Yards look at it as an opportunity to test the waters before they decide if they want to grow further. Men’s underwear brand Mack Weldon, for example, will be opening its first bricks-and-mortar store ever.

“We think about this as a long-term deal,” said Mack Weldon founder and CEO Brian Berger. In opening this first store, Mack Weldon “wants to build a sound case to do a handful more” locations, he said.

A bonus: “The statistic is in the markets where you have physical retail, the [e-commerce] business in that market increases by about 30 percent,” Berger said.

Bill Gates’ response to a stranger’s email reveals a hilarious truth

Bill Gates' response to a stranger's email reveals a hilarious truth

Imagine a world where you could e-mail Bill Gates…and actually get a response.

One would think that someone like Gates, the billionaire tech entrepreneur who co-created Microsoft, does not have time to spend hours and hours monitoring his inbox, let alone answer messages from strangers.

That’s something I would have placed money on — that is, until I recently came across a profile of Gates published in a 1994 issue of The New Yorker, entitled “E-Mail From Bill.” Reading the article, I was certainly impressed, not least by how accurate one of the most important thought leaders of our time was at predicting that digital communication would one day come to entirely rule our lives.

It’s also mind-boggling that John Seabrook, a relatively unknown journalist at the time, could fire off an email to the Microsoft co-founder (and, in 1994, the richest man in America, according to Forbes), and got a response – from the man himself – within 18 minutes after hitting the “send” button. It even led to a month-long digital relationship between the two.

But the most surprising (and pretty hilarious) discovery from the profile is something you never would have guessed about Gates.

In his initial email to Gates, Seabrook asks: “What kind of understanding of another person can email give you?”

As it turns out, the answer is a lot.

Warren Buffett: This is the greatest measure of success in life

Warren Buffett is no doubt one of the few business icons who can deliver the gift of wisdom and truth when we need it most. And those truths, when you really stop and consider them, are always spot-on.

In her biography of Buffett, “The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life,” author Alice Schroeder writes about a time when Buffett gave a presentation at The University of Georgia. The students asked him about his definition of success.

When you’re nearing your end of life, your only measure of success should be the number of “people you want to have love you actually do love you,” he answered.

“I know people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them,” said Buffett. “If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don’t care how big your bank account is, your life is a disaster.”

That’s right, a self-made billionaire says that the amount you are loved — not your wealth or accomplishments — is the ultimate measure of success in life.

Warren Buffett’s career advice will transform how you approach your job

“This may sound like straight-up business advice,” Welch says. These “good people,” she explains, should be the “bosses, co-workers and employees you choose to work with.” Even if you’re a good person, she says, associating yourself with people who “are found out to be jerks,” can result in “collateral damage” to your career.

Warren Buffett's career advice will transform how you approach your job

“This may sound like straight-up business advice,” Welch says. “Like, ‘Don’t sign a join venture with a shady CEO.’ But it’s so much more than that.”

Though some measure of luck plays a role in every professional journey, “there is one thing you can do to nudge your luck in the right direction,” says Welch. “Make sure you associate yourself with good people. People who tell the truth and honor commitments. People who have emotional intelligence.”

These “good people,” she explains, should be the “bosses, co-workers and employees you choose to work with.”

“Yes, choose. Because even though it can feel as if you have no control over who you work with, you do have say in where you work.” If you find yourself in a situation where you’re working with people who lack integrity, regardless of how great the job is, Welch says emphatically, “you must move on.”

“The truth is, you can’t learn anything positive from negative people,” she says. “And strategically, you need to protect your professional reputation.”

Even if you’re a good person, she says, associating yourself with people who “are found out to be jerks,” can result in “collateral damage” to your career.

“Do no let this piece of Warren wisdom go unheeded,” Welch emphasizes. “You cannot build a good career with bad people. The Oracle has spoken.”

Here’s why people don’t get a flu shot and why you should

Every year, health officials warn people to get their flu shots. Meanwhile, the CDC estimates the flu killed more than 80,000 people and caused more than 900,000 hospitalizations last year. “Getting the flu vaccine is better than getting the flu,” said Dr. Deborah Lehman, a professor of pediatrics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. “As someone who has watched children die from the flu and heard of adults dying from the flu, it’s hard for me to re

Here's why people don't get a flu shot and why you should

Every year, health officials warn people to get their flu shots. Every year, people ignore those calls.

Just 37 percent of U.S. adults were estimated to have been vaccinated last flu season, down 6 percentage points from the year before, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meanwhile, the CDC estimates the flu killed more than 80,000 people and caused more than 900,000 hospitalizations last year.

“Getting the flu vaccine is better than getting the flu,” said Dr. Deborah Lehman, a professor of pediatrics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. “As someone who has watched children die from the flu and heard of adults dying from the flu, it’s hard for me to reconcile.”

Here are some common misconceptions people have about the flu vaccine and the truth behind them.
