The Secret Silver Bullet for Entrepreneurs

Welcome to June and the start of summer!  I turned 40 yesterday, and in our last issue of 12Lite, I shared some of my favorite life insights from the last 40 years.  At the top of my list is that it takes years to become an overnight success.  Anyone successful would tell you this, and they would also tell you that it doesn't happen by accident.  It's about intention and just figuring out the next best step that you can take to get there.

CEO Intervention: Save Your Summer

Drums please!  Summer, summer, summertime!  Time to sit back and unwind!  To me, it’s never officially summer until I hear The Fresh Prince’s summer anthem, Summertime!

Apple reportedly launching subscription news service - A premium Apple News app

Texture, which currently offers 200+ magazines for $9.99 per month, will be rolled into Apple’s News team with a new app with subscription option is expected to launch within the next year.

There was also a previous partnership with News Corporation to create an iPad only news publication called The Daily. The Daily was discontinued after less than two years with the explanation of a lack of audience to create a sustainable business model.

Rumors point to cheaper iPads and MacBooks this year

Rumor has it that Apple may lower prices on iPads and MacBooks this year. The MacBook Air is also rumored to be receiving a less-expensive refresh. The latest report comes from DigiTimes, which has reported that Apple will launch a new 13.3-inch “entry-level” MacBook late in Q2 this year, though its screen size suggests it may be an updated version of the Air, since the MacBook only comes with a 12-inch display. The timeline also matches with WWDC in June.

The Year of Hyperfocus

Happy Friday and welcome to 2018!  What a fun year we have in front of us!  As entrepreneurs, we are inherently excited by all of the opportunities, ideas and projects that surround us almost by nature.  Because of our open minds, it's as if the universe dangles these sparkly goodies in front of us, knowing that we possess the required chutzpah to make it happen!  The hard part is, all of that distraction diffuses our energy and focus.

Facebook adds a Snooze button for muting people, groups and Pages for 30 days

Last week Facebook launched a Snooze feature that gives users another option to limit what they see in their news feed. This new feature allows users to mute content from any person, page or group for 30 days without having to go to the extreme of unfriending or unfollowing someone they may want to keep in touch with later. Don’t want to see a month long stream of political rants or baby photos? Temporarily block that group or person by using the new snooze button in the top right dropdown menu on a post.
