If you are a Facebook user, it is very likely that you spent the majority of the time you have wasted on the Facebook news feed. The news feeds of every social media platform is designed as an endless collection of news, links, photos, and videos.
If you would have asked me four or five years ago whether I like Instagram my answer would have been: “I love it!”. However, ask me today the same question, and my answer is quite more complicated.
Greed – Or Why Is There No Real Progress? Today’s society is driven by greed. We want more: more money, more likes, more time. In our society, we never have enough. We always want more. I think that the more-attitude is actually also damaging to our human progress.
Content Marketing in a Content World We live in a content world. Gary Vaynerchuk is only one internet personality who underlines the importance of content. Whether you want to build your personal brand or push your company’s brand to the next level, content creation is a critical factor to success.
Who Is At Fault? If you look at Germany’s startup landscape as an outsider from the U.S. or the UK, you might ask yourself: “What’s wrong here in Germany?” While Germany has the talents to build great things – as you can see in the automotive and aviation industry – there is no real tech […]
I am a music lover. When it comes to innovations on how we are consuming our music I am the first one to try out new music services and concepts. Now – in January 2018 – I can honestly say that I tried (probably) every single music streaming service out there and every radio app. […]
Is There a Perfect NYE? It seems that every year everyone wants to experience the best NYE party ever. People look for fancy places to go – whether they are looking for fantastic city trips, a super expensive wellness hotel, the best club in town, or the most fun house party.
Sorry – Not Available “Sorry, the device you’d like to have is currently not in stock. It is already ordered, and you can pick it up within the next 5 to 10 days.” This is a sentence I hear way too often as I am currently working a few days per week in a customer […]
Ever since I first tried Audible, I am a big fan of audiobooks. Audiobooks are an excellent expansion of your book or e-book collection. However, not every book will suit as an audio version. Why is that so?
Sales and Consulting – Two Contrary Disciplines? The scenario is the same everywhere: Clueless customers seek an expert consultation, and then they come across a commission based salesperson. Apparently, there is a conflict of interest.
Work more to get more done? According to Mark Manson, this is an entirely old advice – I agree and here is why.
During the last months, I joined a group of four other passionate fellows to compete in an Accenture case competition. Our goal was not to compete but to win.
The Go-Giver written by Bob Burg and John David Mann is a short parable pointing out the importance of the saying “Give and you shall receive” in the business and your private life.
Already a few weeks ago I finished Tim Ferris’ latest book which is called “Tools of the Titans”. Now that I have finished the book I am highly surprised by the extremely positive feedback it has on Goodreads and Amazon. That’s why I decided to order it and see if there are really so many […]
Is Artificial Intelligence the greatest threat to our human species ever? This is a question which is dividing many well-known figures in the tech industry. With this short post, I want to share my thoughts that maybe the smartest in the field of AI has a limited awareness of risk.
I felt overwhelmed during the last weeks. I was running a business, writing three exams, participating in a case competition, and preparing a few presentations. Last Friday I felt totally exhausted and I didn’t know what to work on or what to focus on. One thing was clear: I must have some time for myself […]
Since a few months, ICOs or Initial Coin Offerings are the hottest and most discussed topic in the area of investment and blockchain technology. An ICO is basically a crypto and blockchain based Initial Public Offering. You can refer to ICOs also as IPCOs – Initial Public Coin Offerings.
Why it is difficult to compare the German Mobile Payment Landscape with the U.S. The first time I came in contact and worked within the mobile payment industry in Germany was in spring 2014. Together with a friend of mine I freelanced and promoted a mobile payment application called kesh in Düsseldorf and the surroundings.
Artificial intelligence is usually used together with other big terms like big data. But besides handling and making sense of huge amounts of data what else is AI technology capable of when it comes to the workspace?
If you spent the last 6 months watching at Initial Public Offerings (IPO) only, you missed out a huge trend. More and more startup teams – who develop software for blockchain platforms – decide to raise capital through an initial coin offering (ICOs).
Artificial Intelligence is about to change the world. While smart assistants have already conquered our smartphones – they are about to conquer our workplace as well.
How bad are the consequences of smartphones? Every day we see the same scene, people staring at their smartphone everywhere and all the time. At home, in the restaurant, on the train, plane, school, at work, and basically everywhere. And we all know how unbelievable distracting and addicting smartphones are.
There’s a philosophical question I asked myself today. There are many people you truly love. You value them and you really like them. In return, they love you too. But somehow, there are some people you truly love but hate spending time with. They might be friends from school or work, parents, or relatives. There […]
My Thoughts on Praising Children, Students, and Employees Why praising the greatness or intelligence of your children, students, or employees might actually lower their chances for success.
Since day one, Instagram is a popular marketing platform. Even before Facebook officially opened it to advertisers. So, from very early on, the first brands and businesses started to use a “follow-unfollow” strategy. Combined with the continuous liking of random Instagram posts, the spam was perfect. Follow-Unfollow describes the continuous following of random Instagram profiles […]
