For those of you who know me, this growth opportunity in the past year has been learning to ride and work on motorcycles. Thanks to a close friend, this past month we decided to try a Track Day at the Barber Motor speedway near Birmingham, Ala.
More than 30 million people could be denied entry, detained or deported from 45 countries worldwide. They are neither terrorists, criminals nor drug dealers. The reason? They live with HIV.
In the name of "fiscal responsibility," the self-interested CEOs animating Fix the Debt are pushing a deficit reduction plan that would lower taxes for corporations and the super-rich while slashing programs central to the middle class and those working their way into it.
Does the route to a company's top spot -- outside hire versus homegrown talent -- make any difference to a CEO's effectiveness and ultimate success? Let's take a closer look.
It's no surprise that CEOs are drumming up "fiscal cliff" hysteria to protect their wealth. But choosing Caesar's Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman to deliver their message on NPR demonstrates once again how shameless the very rich are in their contempt for the 99 percent.
Although the election is behind us, the Republicans and Corporate America have rolled out a front group that's promoting the proposals of failed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a way to resolve the fiscal showdown.

What do women bring to the table that makes their companies more likely to thrive? Is it just about women, or particular kinds of women? Are women a sign of something bigger at work in a company's culture?
Transitions almost inevitably will turn into steep roller coaster rides, but with thoughtful and forthright management, they can be turned into productive experiences for everyone involved.
Odds are pretty high that your favorite candidate, Mitt Romney, is going to lose, and the other guy will get re-elected. If I were you, I would start lowering the temperature now or risk getting on the bad side of the winner.
