  • My Pivot Point Led to Better Work-Life Balance

    By Christine Lam, Country Business Manager, Global Consumer Bank, Hong Kong, Citi March 04, 2014 11:32 AM

    To celebrate International Women's Day, Christine Lam, Country Business Manager for Citi, shares her pivot point.

  • Meet Adam Goldstein of Hipmunk on #StartupLab

    By The Young Entrepreneur Council October 10, 2012 02:00 PM

    Meet Adam Goldstein of Hipmunk on #StartupLab. Entrepreneurs are a special breed: they're employers, managers, innovators, risk-takers, negotiators, presenters and salespeople -- all at the same time.

    They just have a hunch -- and sometimes, that's enough.

    Take this week's live chat host (RSVP here) Adam Goldstein. An MIT grad and debate champion, Adam fielded headache after headache while booking travel accommodations for his debate team at MIT. He then expressed his frustrations to his good friend who was a Reddit co-founder.
