Some of our clients whose enterprises have taken off since they adopted -and now swear by- the xSuit, have approached us to seek business advice. The fact that we have mastered the future of men’s pants and jackets; created the perfect, most comfortable suit for business and travel, does not certify us as seers, nor does it grant us business consultant status.
However, we did a little research and came up with a top list of blogs and online publications that reveal useful information directed at entrepreneurs who move in specific industries or need certain general pointers. Here is the list:
Available in Kindle as well as other printed forms, is the largest news source dedicated to digital culture, social media and technology. Headquartered in New York City, it is basically the blog that follows and reviews other blogs relevant to its wide field of interest, from Facebook to Netflix to TV programming and the business aspects of entertainment.
Fast Company performs similar services but from an Advertising mindset, with a unique view at tech innovation, leadership and design, and emphasis on first-person, interactive communication among companies, employees, vendors, and the public. Through online dialogue and feedback, they may promote products, conduct market research, attract collaboration from outside and even engage in internal contact between your business and its partners or staff. Its blogs are praised for their friendly style and clarity. Commercial enterprises of all sizes need to assess whether blogs are worth the time and effort invested in their creation and sustainment. Fast Company works especially for medium and smaller businesses.
The global media brand that celebrates capitalism and the enterprising spirit, recently introduced a welcome, informative addition. “The Entrepreneurs of Forbes” is an internal video series highlighting rising stars in American business (remember it’s not so much what you know as who you know). The pilot video featured a prestigious attorney who co-founded a high-end jewelry line inspired by her late grandmother. Needless to say, Forbes should be read and/or watched consistently, and you might do so in corporate outerwear from our collection, just for ambiance.
