Business is a lot like dating. Like cold-hearted, competitive dating among people who don’t love each other. In other words, like awful, awful dating. Once upon a time, when I was considering moving to New York, I looked for jobs. A Director of Marketing position was available at a company I’ll call QuixoticIdea.Com. I was an unconventional candidate — I’d…
I once put up an ad on Craigslist for a personal assistant. I’m not very good at managing people, and I know that, so I wouldn’t want to mislead anyone. The ad basically said, “I’m a big idiot with lots of stuff going on. Here are fifty things I need to do (send press releases, make hardboiled eggs, wait in…
How wealthy you are doesn’t have all that much to do with what’s in your bank account. It also has to do with where you’re reading this from right now, and whether it’s possible for you to get “in trouble” for reading TheGloss during “work hours.” It has a lot to do with how much of your time you have…

From a former head of research of a pharmaceutical company, as quoted in a scare-tactic-filled article on The Daily Mail: Today, we know that…
At the age of 25, I donated eggs to a gay man in California in exchange for $8,000. In order to do this, I was put on a schedule of drugs and hormones, many of which I injected into my own stomach. During this whirlwind tour of human hormonal states, I got a pretty good idea of what it might…
Every time I go on vacation, I pack a bunch of “casual clothes.” Then, walking around Mexico City in a sundress (for instance), I feel that I am not conveying a sufficient level of gravitas. I then iPhone my way to the local Zara and buy a blazer, after which I get better service absolutely everywhere, or at least everywhere…
Welcome to a new column on TheGloss! Every Tuesday, “Bullish” will take on issues related to the workplace, money, and entrepreneurship. Why “Bullish”? The bull has long been the totem animal of Wall Street — the snorting, aggressive paragon of masculinity associated with rising financial markets. I live three blocks from the Wall Street bull (which, technically, is located on…
