We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world. This year my book tour is taking me to a lot of colleges, and my first piece of advice is to start by defining success for yourself -- by being clear about what you want, what you value and what you are about.

The good news is that we have an invaluable resource that can help deliver the world-class job training that prepares workers for the jobs that need to be filled: our community college system.
Schlafly's suggestion that women should make less than their male counterparts demonstrates not only that she is still living in the 1950s, but completely out of touch with the demographic and social realities facing American women and families.
These victories are a step in the right direction. So now the question is, will Walmart also require their suppliers to institute these same policies -- and more?
Go into Jamba Juice today and you'll find something new. Your drink will be served in a specially designed double-walled paper cup.
The old adage is, "Everybody has two businesses: their own and show business." If we don't pay better attention to the middle-class jobs generated by the entertainment industry, Los Angeles will be down to only one business.
In the small business sphere, ironically something that may have been erroneously considered as a job-killer has been found to be a catalyst for creating jobs: technology.
Saving up your hard-earned cash to stash away an emergency fund? Well, it can be a hard sell. Spare cash can be hard to come by, and, after all, taking a vacation is a heck of a lot more fun. Or at least a lot of us seem to think so.
