The Weekly Independent: November 20, 2017

   |   MBO Partners   |   November 20, 2017


Staying on top of your field means staying ahead of the biggest news stories. That’s why each week we bring you The Weekly Independent, a quick-hit digest of news of note from around the web.

  • At the recent Dreamforce conference, Salesforce CEO Mark Benioff discussed the future of work with IBM CEO Ginni Rommetty. They hit on a number of future trends, including the rise of blockchain, AI, and the importance of data responsibility. Rometty also gave valuable career advice for independents and the traditionally-employed alike. You have to get uncomfortable, she says. “It will make you take risks. If you are not getting nervous something is wrong.” We encourage everyone to take the time to watch this valuable discussion.
  • The Senate’s tax reform bill may include language around a worker misclassification safe harbor for businesses, Lexology reports, but others say this language may shift classification issues in favor of businesses rather than contractors.
  • The New York Times provides insight on how to design a home office space.

Should you have any questions, we’re always here for you.

Of course, we’d love to talk virtually as well. Share your thoughts with us at MBO Partners on TwitterFacebook and LinkedIn, and we’ll see you again next week!
