Zenefits - Reality bites for yet another startup high flyer

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The question, of course, is can this high flyer even lift off again. Meanwhile that other high flyer Theranos looks like it may never have the resources to regroup. The organizational culture at Zenefits was found to be short on ethics.

"Pulling a Price - Who Will Next Be Targeted Allegedly Doing That?

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

He was the $1 million flyer. But instead of lots of frequent flyer miles, he got forced out of his job as Secretary of Health and Human Services.    That's because he billed back his travel to the U.S. taxpayers. That didn't sit well. And, now he is gone.

Crime and Punishment - Beyond the Legal System for Jeffrey Epstein

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

But, given that Epstein has been denied bail and given the way his one-time allies are distancing themselves, the one-time high-flyer might have run out of hope. The history of art and ideas is jam-packed with explorations of alleged crimes and suitable punishments. "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoevsky is a classic in that niche.    That concept dominates because there has never been 100% confidence in or satisfaction with the nation's official legal system.

THE NEW YORK TIMES - 3Q Loss

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Will it wind up on the block like that other digitally-challenged high-flyer NEWSWEEK? Not only has THE NEW YORK TIMES not made a successful leap into the digital era.    It has not got its fixed costs down to where it can be profitable in the age of frugality.    As expected, it's reporting a 3Q loss.  There is simply no space for fat overhead in a media business. Gawker pays peanuts.

But an ugly girl might get more attention & put in more soul

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  In its Craigslist ad  it states it is seeking a pretty girl with a nice smile to get attention for the company by giving out flyers etc.  Presentation is a tricky business.    This enterprise in Rhode Island might not realize this.    But an ugly girl might attract more interest.    Also, take it from a female who never fit with fashionable beauty criteria, we put more soul in our work.

Drug Dealers Killing Repeat Business

And then a month later you received an adverting flyer in the mail trying to entice you back into the store to buy something else. Drug dealers, what are you doing? Selling your customers such bad s**t that it’s killing them? Don’t you know, dead customers can’t buy more drugs from you! And that kills your repeat business. I used to work in advertising for Radio Shack (now The Source).

Theranos - The (Alleged) Sins of the Founder Result in Massive Layoff

  Once a high-flyer, Theranos began its downward trajectory after The Wall Street outed the problems with its supposed revolutionary technology. Yesterday, most of the remaining employees at blood-testing firm Theranos were laid off. That's how the severely distressed startup is struggling to hold onto cash and duck the bankruptcy bullet. Here is the coverage by The Wall Street Journal. Its founder - Elizabeth Holmes - already had left.

Conde Nast - Cuts Custom-Made

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Conde Nast had been known as a high-flyer, pulling out all stops to get just the right writer and the perfect photo shoot. One-size cut won't fit all.    At Conde Nast, post-McKinsey review, budget reductions will be done on a publication to publication basis and not in a single timeframe.    That's what CRAIN'S NE W YORK BUSINESS reports.    What will be universal, at least for a while, is the mindset of frugality. 

Is WIRED Next to Get Cut at Conde Nast?

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  But, let's hope that management consulting firm McKinsey, which is now on-board advising the media high-flyer, can come up with recommendations that save a bit more than that and bring the company into the digital age. Things keep looking worse for the future of WIRED.    Its ad pages for this year, reports  Jason Turbow in Mediabistro.com, were down 44% and it has canceled annual special event NextFest.

Elizabeth Holmes - Iron Lady of Tech

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Many remember the days when Theranos was a high flyer. One thing about Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes is that she is determined to stay in business. Despite all the near-death experiences for that startup, Holmes continues to take even the small steps necessary to save the company - and herself. But the odds are against that. The latest move, reports MarketWatch, is agreeing to accept the feds' two-year ban on being part of the blood-testing industry.

Never can say goodbye

Speak Schmeak

You might want them to donate money, call their congressional representative or hang flyers advertising a local festival. Do you ever go to a party or family gathering and find it hard to leave? You start saying goodbye to people, and it's inevitable that there's someone you didn't talk to enough. So now you're getting caught up, and the clock keeps ticking. You try to say goodbye to everyone you know, here you are, 30 minutes later, still trying to leave.
