Davos 2017 - Highlights - Day 1

China’s President Xi Jinping said:
“It is true that economic globalization has created new problems. But this is no justification to write off economic globalization altogether. Rather, we should adapt to and guide globalization, cushion its negative impact, and deliver its benefits to all countries and all nations,”

Joseph Stiglitz argued that fading out currencies like the dollar in favour of a purely digital economy would cut corruption.

Preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, said:
“We must ask how it will help the average working man for the future.”

Just eight men own as much wealth as half of humanity, said OXFAM executive-director, Winnie Byanyima.

Trump's aide:
''Trump was not the enemy of globalization, that he sought a strong bilateral relationship with China rather than a trade war, that he wanted to reform NATO, not tear it apart, that he wasn’t opposed to the European Union, and that he sought to build peace.''

CEO ready

Top executive responsible for a firm's overall operations and performance. He or she is the leader of the firm, serves as the main link between the board of directors (the board) and the firm's various parts or levels, and is held solely responsible for the firm's success or failure. One of the major duties of a CEO is to maintain and implement corporate policy, as established by the board.

The responsibilities of an organization's CEO are set by the organization's board of directors or other authority, depending on the organization's legal structure. They can be far-reaching or quite limited and are typically enshrined in a formal delegation of authority. Typically, responsibilities include decision maker on strategy and other key policy issues, leader, manager, and executor. The communicator role can involve speaking to the press and the rest of the outside world, as well as to the organization's management and employees; the decision-making role involves high-level decisions about policy and strategy. As a leader of the company, the CEO/MD advises the board of directors, motivates employees, and drives change within the organization. As a manager, the CEO/MD presides over the organization's day-to-day operations.[4][5][6] The term refers to the person who makes all the key decisions regarding the company, which includes all sectors and fields of the business, including operations, marketing, business development, finance, human resources, etc. The CEO of a company is not necessarily the owner of the company.

Having a degree from an elite school and an exceptional knowledge of the industry in which the company operates are excellent credentials to have. However, those qualities in and of themselves don't guarantee that a person will make it to the top of the corporate ladder. Personality traits may also play a role in an individual's ability to attain chief executive status.

Typically, CEOs are:

Expert communicators, deal makers, and managers

Extroverts who are eager to go out on the road and tell their company's story

Individuals who are able and willing to present a cohesive vision and strategy to employees

Individuals who are decisive, adaptable and forward-looking.

A CEO’s responsibilities: everything, especially in a startup. The CEO is responsible for the success or failure of the company. Operations, marketing, strategy, financing, creation of company culture, human resources, hiring, firing, compliance with safety regulations, sales, PR, etc.—it all falls on the CEO’s shoulders. Being responsible means that the CEO is the one held accountable for the success of the company’s efforts, across the board. But of course, the CEO doesn’t actually do all that work.

Capital allocation is the CEO’s #4 duty. The CEO sets budgets within the firm. She funds projects which support the strategy, and ramps down projects which lose money or don’t support the strategy. She considers carefully the company’s major expenditures, and manages the firm’s capital. If the company can’t use each dollar raised from investors to produce at least $1 of shareholder value, she decides when to return money to the investors. Some CEOs don’t consider themselves financial people, but at the end of the day, it is their decisions that determine the company’s financial fate.

Easiest to measure is a CEO’s capital allocation skill. In fact, financial measures are the ones made public: earnings and share price. But how can a CEO link those to her actual decisions? Working with her CFO, a CEO can devise financial measures appropriate to her business. Sometimes traditional measures are most appropriate, such as economic value added or return on assets (for a capital-intensive company). Other times, the CEO may want to invent business-specific measures, such as return on training dollars, for a company which values state-of-the-art training for employees. By monitoring several such measures, a CEO learns to link her budget decisions with company outcomes. Ultimately, the CEO’s should be creating more than a dollar of value for every dollar invested in the company. Otherwise, her best bet is to return cash to the shareholders for them to invest in more productive vehicles.

Blogger 2017 Edition

I will be blogging in 2017.

I used to blog in 2001.
Blogger 2001. - Blogger 2017.

Some thoughts:

- Facebook ate blogging and microblogging
- Facebook should buy Medium and Wordpress
- Facebook should buy Twitter
- Facebook should buy Netflix
- Facebook should buy LinkedIN
- The disadvantage for Facebook content is that it is invisible to Google Search per entry basis
- everything should be mobile-first ( Google indexing changes and AMP project )
- voice queries growing in importance ( Google Home, AMZ Echo etc. )
- don't produce spam through so called content marketing
- subscription lists still relevant
- blogging + curated content in the context of e-commerce project has value and it can generate income for the publisher

Basic income in Finland

Free Cash in Finland.
Must Be Jobless.

“People in a disadvantaged position, they use a major part of their cognitive ability worrying about their lives, worrying about where they will get their next meal,” says Mikko Annala, a researcher at Demos Helsinki, a think tank. “What if we have this potential there that is continuously worrying about life, about making it? What if we can get that into use by giving them something? That is a hypothesis that we should absolutely test.”

“Basic income is kind of a symbol that we believe in your capacity and we think that you are actually able to do things which are beneficial to you, and also for your community,” says Heikki Hiilamo, a professor of social policy at Helsinki University. “It’s built on a kind of a positive view of human beings. People want to be autonomous. They want to improve their well-being.”

Memphis - The capitol of rock'n roll



We shall fly directly to Memphis Tennessee with the private jet.
Our first stop will be Reykyavik to add some fuel to our engines.

The flight will last a little bit more than 16 hours.

Here we come Memphis to see the roots of rock n' roll.

Simple SWOT




How we shall think today ? Positive or negative ?

If we're positive than we are able to see our strengths and opportunities coming our way.

If we're negative we might see only weaknesses and threats.

We can influence by default our inner experience ( strengths and weaknesses ), but not our outside experience ( opportunities and threats) .

Fair Trade Principles

It makes you feel good in your skin when selling

The life is what you make out of it. You can be noble and wise trader/seller/salesman.

Generally, I don't like selling and trading. There's some psychological barrier in my head that subconsiously connects the craft of trade with something dishonest and negative.

If you don't like selling stuff, then don't do it and leave it to folks who are born salesmen.

But there is solution to your sales worries. You can actually be successful in selling if you connect selling with something that is honest and truthful.

Your answer to this is FAIR TRADE. It will make you peace of mind. No bullshit and no fake intentions. Be transparent and open. Make the process and price fair.

The principles of fair trade


Fair trade definition:

'' Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South.

Fair Trade organisations have a clear commitment to Fair Trade as the principal core of their mission. They, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade."
