Jonathan Ive and the Future of Apple | The New Yorker
In recent months, Sir Jonathan Ive, the forty-seven-year-old senior vice-president of design at Apple—who used to play rugby in secondary school, and still has a bench-pressing bulk that he carries a little sheepishly, as if it belonged to someone else—has described himself as both “deeply, de

Create & Cultivate's Jaclyn Johnson Talks Money at The Riveter - The Riveter
Raising funds for the sake of funds isn’t always wise.

“We’re a completely self-funded company. Everyone was raising money, five million, ten million, and I was like, ‘Yes, absolutely, that’s what we’re going to go do.’ All these people offered to give us a lot of money, and we turned it down because at the end of the day we were profitable and we knew what we were doing. If you can’t say, I need money for X, Y, and Z, you should not be raising money. You need to know exactly what you’ll be inputting that money into, and for us, I couldn’t really figure it out.”

Communicate with your business partners about where you want your money to take you.

“If you have a co-founder in a company, have those conversations up front… ‘What do you want out of life? Do you want to be very rich?’ And people have very clear answers about that. I’m very much a businessperson, like, ‘Let’s do this. Let’s make money.’ And I love seeing other people making money as well. But, I think there are different ways to run companies. You can be very conservative fiscally. You can be very liberal with your money and your hires. And, you can not care about being profitable and really try to break even-like. Whatever it is, you have to have those really hard conversations upfront.”

Profile: Tulsi Gabbard and Her 2020 Presidential Campaign
How far does our commitment to religious diversity extend? Is it weirder to follow the dictates of a surfer guru who believes the moon landing was a hoax than to claim, as does Evangelical Mike Pence, that the establishment of Israel represents biblical prophecy? Georgia representative Jody Hice believes you can predict major political events through a succession of “blood moons.” A recent member of Congress claims pregnancy by “legitimate rape” is impossible. Because he believes bee pollen cured his allergies, former Iowa senator Tom Harkin has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars failing to prove the legitimacy of various alternative medicines, pollen among them.
