Remember a few years back when it seemed like everyone and their mother's hedge fund manager were being busted for insider trading?

Are Humble CEOs More Successful?

Although I've never come across a study measuring CEOs' success against their level of humility, I'd wager that there's a strong positive correlation between the two. And so, I'd wager that what this recent Wall Street Journal article points to is true: that braggart CEOs with big egos do not perform as well, nor do their staffs perform as well, as CEOs who've been schooled in the fine art of humility, and that, as a result, boards of companies are beginning to hire accordingly.

Rihanna, Hillary, and JLaw: Hardworking Women of the Week

Although there were many haters (in the comments section) of filmmaker and author Miranda July's New York Times piece on music icon Rihanna, I found it to be one of the better celebrity interviews I've come across in a long time. And what struck me most about the interview, along with the satirical approach July seemed to take when executing the all too often bland and formulaic celebrity Q&A, was the fact that Rihanna is likely working harder than all of us.
