Book Trailer: "One More Thing" by B.J. Novak

Book Trailer: "One More Thing" by B.J. Novak

B.J. Novak's "One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories" (On-sale by Knopf 2/4/14) is an endlessly entertaining, surprisingly sensitive, and startlingly original debut that signals the arrival of a brilliant new voice in American fiction.

A boy wins a US$100,000 prize in a box of Frosted Flakes—only to discover that claiming the winnings might unravel his family. A woman sets out to seduce motivational speaker Tony Robbins—turning for help to the famed motivator himself. A new arrival in Heaven, overwhelmed with options, procrastinates over a long-ago promise to visit his grandmother. We meet Sophia, the first artificially intelligent being capable of love, who falls for a man who might not be ready for it himself; a vengeance-minded hare, obsessed with scoring a rematch against the tortoise who ruined his life; and post-college friends who try to figure out how to host an intervention in the era of Facebook. Along the way, we learn why wearing a red T-shirt every day is the key to finding love, how February got its name, and why the stock market is sometimes just . . . down.

Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, "One More Thing" has at its heart the most human of phenomena: love, fear, hope, ambitio

9 Things Adult Daughters Want Their Moms To Know

9 Things Adult Daughters Want Their Moms To Know

~ By Gaye Clark, Anna Clark Wiggins

“And Mom, for my eighteenth birthday . . .”
The rest of my daughter’s sentence sounded like an adult in a Charlie Brown special. Anna spoke clearly enough, but I focused on the impending reality of those last four words.
“Mom? Mom!”
I looked up at my daughter. “I’m sorry . . . what? What were you saying?”
She shook her head and her eyes narrowed. “You weren’t listening, were you?”
Anna, like many young women, was a self-proclaimed daddy’s girl. Throughout her life, he’d been the go-to parent for her. “I’m just like Dad,” she would explain. “Besides, Nathan is your favorite anyway.”
Ouch. I didn’t want to be accused of playing favorites. With my husband’s recent death, I held both my children closer than ever.

3rd Party Sellers Generate Over US$22 Billion Every Year for Amazon

3rd party sellers generate over $22bn in revenue every year for Amazon.

It feels like evvveryone is hopping on the Amazon train. With one-hour delivery, massive Whole Foods discounts, and near-instant drone delivery (coming soon), there's a lot to be excited about.

While every new feature Amazon rolls out generates massive news coverage, there is another side of Amazon's commerce platform that flies relatively under the radar. Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA)-- where thousands of independent shops, manufacturers, and distributors sell their own products directly on Amazon— has spawned a blossoming ecosystem where entrepreneurs are thriving.

FBA was born out of Amazon's own hyper-efficient fulfillment centers, which manage billions of items owned and sold by Amazon. Instead of purchasing new products themselves, Amazon allowed anybody to ship their products directly to their fulfillment centers. Items purchased by customers are fulfilled by Amazon, who takes a percentage of the sale.

FBA grew quickly: outside sellers accounted for 45%+ of all orders on Amazon in 2015. 😮

The Fulfilled by Amazon Ecosystem

Some businesses are thriving in the Fulfilled by Amazon ecosystem:

3rd party sellers: The most obvious category. Entrepreneurs selling goods through FBA, from paperbacks bought at yard sales to lip balm mass ordered from China, generate over $22bn in revenue every year.

Take Harsha Atluri, who sold over $200k working nights in college:

“Some sellers go directly to manufacturers or sign distributor agreements, but that's difficult as a solo operation. I source products from Craigslist, yard sales, thrift shops, and online auction sites.”

Angel List.
