How to get funding from deluded, self-congratulating investors

Penelope Trunk

From 1997 to 2012 just 1% of VC funded companies had female founders. Three of those companies were mine. People tell me it’s much better for women now, but statistically , this is BS. I raised money for a startup recently, and here’s what I found works best for female founders: Get a male cofounder.

Think Reliablility

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Correlation does not imply causation.” It’s an old adage, and a true one. Correlation is an association between two things. Causation is when one thing causes another thing to happen. Of course, if one thing causes another to happen , those two things are associated. Causation always implies correlation, but again, correlation does not imply causation.

Introspection means continual expression, not continual analysis!

ReNew Business

I borrowed the title from the beautiful “A life of one’s own” by M. Milner published in 1934 and today difficult to find. The book is the result of a meticulous “recording” of Milner’s introspection over a period of seven years. This is a passage I truly love and that, today, seems relevant and a cautionary message in a society so “focused on purpose”. “ I had been continually exhorted to define my purpose in life, but I was now beginning to doubt whether life might not be too complex a thing to

An Invitation to feel: poetry

ReNew Business

Do not act as if the poem itself has an answer- that it is a question to be solved. Poetry doesn’t have clean answers. It doesn’t have a clean narrative. It’s about the mess. It’s about the emotional impact. It’s about making space for complex ideas all in one place. It’s not an invitation to solve a math problem. It’s about instead an invitation to feel.

Top Techniques for Coaching Your Contact Center Agents

Speaker: Francoise Tourniaire - Founder of FT Works, Omid Razavi - Chief Advocacy Officer at SupportLogic, and Gregory Walker - Senior Product Manager at SupportLogic

The 'great resignation' and the 'great talent reshuffle' have impacted contact center and customer support staff as much, if not more than, any other part of the workforce. Couple that with a potentially volatile economy and it's clear that organizations must invest in innovative approaches if they want employees who are engaged and informed enough to significantly improve the customer experience and eliminate the high costs associated with agent attrition.
