Stephanie McMahon , the daughter of former WWE founder Vince McMahon and now the company’s Co-CEO, began the company’s second-quarter earnings call with a tribute to her father as a “true founder and entrepreneur.” Earlier this summer, she and Nick Khan were named Co-CEOs of the company as a board-initiated investigation into Vince McMahon’s conduct began. After the probe verified claims from numerous women of sexual harassment, retaliation and payoffs, McMahon resigned in July. Along with its financial results, the company reported earlier this morning that the investigation is now “substantially complete.” McMahon and his wife, Linda “poured their heart and soul into building this business and taking WWE from a regional wrestling promotion in the 1980s to the global entertainment enterprise we are today,” Stephanie McMahon said. “He built the foundation we stand on and prepared us for the future.” Prior to the call, WWE reported strong results for the … [Read more...] about WWE Starts Post-Vince McMahon Era With Strong Q2 Numbers; Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon Lauds Father As “True Founder And Entrepreneur”

Opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not reflect the views of Rolling Stone editors or publishers. The entrepreneurial journey is tough — a real odyssey of challenges, difficulties, and failures. But like an odyssey, it is a beautiful journey, which asks of us mental endurance more than anything. Challenges, for entrepreneurs, are a sport, and like athletes, they go to great lengths to overcome them. People like Elon Musk have already tapped into the right mindset, founding successful enterprises one after the other with seemingly bottomless reserves of grit and intelligence. As the industry leader in electric vehicles, his ingenuity has brought great innovations to Earth, and with Space X, he is now reaching out into the universe. What the likes of Musk are capable of squeezing into a day’s work might seem almost supernatural. But if you look closely, their recipe for success is built around core mindsets that allow them to breeze through challenges and use … [Read more...] about 3 Key Ingredients for Successful Serial Entrepreneurship

Earlier this month, poliovirus was discovered in wastewater in counties outside New York City late last month, signaling the first domestic outbreak since the 1970s of that potentially deadly and crippling virus. Covid . Monkey Pox. Now polio . If it seems like infectious diseases are coming at us faster, spreading more widely and persisting longer than they have in generations—well, it’s because they are, health experts say, largely because one thing that we can do to reliably prevent an outbreak of infectious disease—get vaccinated—is the one thing millions of people in the United States and across the developed world are failing to do. For the first time since the early 1990s, life-expectancy is actually dropping for many groups in the U.S. A fifth of Americans have refused the Covid vaccines for themselves or their children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And just 65 percent of residents of some counties outside New York … [Read more...] about Polio Is Making a Comeback. Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers!
Long gone are the days of 55M people tuning in to see Johnny Carson’s final ever appearance hosting The Tonight Show . However, Jimmy Fallon’s iteration of the venerable NBC series has reached its own milestone – becoming the first late-night show to reach 30M subscribers on YouTube. “That is a crazy number,” said Fallon. “I’m so thankful for everyone who watches on TV but also online and subscribes to our channel, it means a lot to all of us so we’re very proud. Thank you very much.” It highlights the changes in the medium with many people, particularly younger audiences choosing to watch clips of the late-night shows online, on YouTube and via social media rather than tune in at 11:30pm or 12:30am at night. The Tonight Show’s closest rival in terms of YouTube subscribers is The Late Late Show with James Corden with 27.9M, highlighting how much that that these shows with viral segments and variety spots are watched in a non-linear way. Elsewhere, Jimmy … [Read more...] about ‘The Tonight Show’ Hits YouTube Milestone With 30M Subscribers

Well, you need to craft your job postings to appeal to your target candidates, but there’s a big difference between job ads that will simply get seen online, and ads that will actually convert to real applications. The best job listings keep in mind that when potential applicants look into your open position, they’re most likely going in blind with little knowledge of your company, its culture, and what’s required of your employees. In fact, research from the Candidate Experience Awards shows that 48% of all online applicants don’t have prior knowledge of your company — so it’s up to you to reel them in. That means you don’t want to go too generic when creating a job advertisement, as we know you want to reach as many interested parties as possible, but a listing is useless if it … [Read more...] about RS Recommends: These Are the Best Ways to Make Sure Your Job Listings Actually Get Seen
