If you really want to cut through the clutter and land that VC funding, launch a perfect product or secure that sometimes-elusive media placement, maybe it?s time to try something new: plain English.

New Jersey's Governor has bashed the tax revenues that can come from legalizing marijuana as 'blood money.' Is he right that the businesses go to cash and avoid taxes?

Do you need more time? For most people, the answer is a resounding yes. Yet many of us waste time every day, or spend it on things that don?t make us satisfied. Time is a precious resource, so it is worth checking up our spending now and again. By doing a time audit we can boost our productivity. Do you know exactly where your time goes?

China?s online retail sales grew 49.7% to RMB 2.79 trillion last year, prompting Ma Jiantang, head of the National Bureau of Statistics, to comment: ?This is where our hope lies.? It was by far the most high-profile signal that China?s leaders, perhaps helped along by the successful IPO of Alibaba and many other Internet companies, recognize the potential of China?s 780 million online users. It is a sign that they embrace the benefits of the Internet which is expected to create 46 million new jobs in China by 2025.

Change isn't anew phenomenon, in fact the only thing we can be certain of in this world is that change is going to happen all the time. So then why are the discussions around the future of work taking center stage at so many organizations, conferences, media publications, etc around the world? Aren't we just going through another cycle of the same old? Absolutely not. It's true that change is a constant we should all be used to but the type of changes we are seeing in the world are unlike anything we have experienced in the past for three reasons: 1) the world is now connected 2) the pace of change has never been greater and 3) every industry and every company in every geography is being disrupted. Look at how Uber is disrupting transportation and logistics, Square’s disruption of payments, Fitbit’s impact on medical devices, the freelancer and sharing economies impact on traditional models and forms of employment. New marketplaces, platforms and technologies are disrupting pretty much every industry you can think of. As the saying goes, “Either you disrupt or get disrupted,” and this is what we’re starting to see. In the latest episode of the #futurein5 I talk about this in more detail and help explain "why this time it's different."
