Streetonomics

Street names and titles don’t just serve a functional purpose of locating a certain place, but also reveal aspects of history, culture and character of the area.

Streetonomics, new research on location names, aims to uncover hidden facets and the identity of the places.

3 IDEAS

Evaluating company culture

Company culture is a necessary part to consider when evaluating whether a job is a good match for you. The work environment can have a significant impact on your experience and satisfaction in your role.

There are some pointers to help you understand the company's culture before you accept an offer.

Your values will affect your company culture

A company’s Vision and Mission define where your company is going. Values define how you get there - for example, "openness."

Defining your values becomes the foundation for your company culture, directing the decisions you make, and the people you hire.

Top business lessons to take away
  • Have a vision in mind, and let that steer your decisions. Belfort didn’t get rich by accident.
  • Sell Yourself. Belfort acted powerful and wore fancy suits, and people saw him as confident and successful. 
  • Find A Specialty.
  • Adjust And Perfect Your Strategy, Then Keep At It. Belfort came up with a strategy that worked for his target demographic, and he tweaked it until it worked perfectly.
  • Train People Well. He was able to train otherwise clueless people to sound like knowledgeable and experienced stock brokers.
  • Try, Try Again. Even Belfort managed to bankrupt his own small business before he went to Wall Street.
  • Provide A Solution. As Belfort himself explained, “At a certain point, one of the questions I always ask is, ‘What is your greatest headache right now?’” Find out how you can help your customers and then do exactly that.
  • Keep Employees Happy.
  • Take Your Time if you’re offered a deal and you’re hesitant.
A replacement for fountain pens

Fountain pens, although stylish, were messy and impractical.

In 1945, Gimbels started to sell a new kind of ink pen, made by the Reynolds International Pen Company. With its quick-dry ink and a rolling ball in the nib, it promised a steady stream of ink with no leaks, smudges, or pooling inkblots.

The pen was not the first ballpoint pen. But its evolution is an example of a game-changing design waiting for the right outside factors to achieve its full potential - in this case, the increase of plastics, mass-production infrastructure, and a brilliant marketeer.
