Salary Story Of A Six Figure Tech Employee
Best Salary-Related Advice: “I’ve learned over the years to document all of the receipts so that you’re in a position to advocate for yourself. I repeatedly share my wins with my boss in my one-on-ones, or in other ways. I even Slack my CEO when I’ve had a big win. I used to let other people share my accomplishments, but I’ve learned to start sharing my own.”  salary-negotiations  profiles  work-receipts

Matthew Hussey: three tips to become more attractive - Business Insider
Show different sides of you. I always call them "unique pairings." If you have two qualities in you that you don't normally find in the same person - that's a unique pairing.

It's the combination of qualities that makes us really attractive. Not just being dominant in one area.

The trap of early feedback | Seth's Blog
If you’ve created something that will delight and astound 10% of the marketplace, there’s a 90% chance that the first person who encounters your work will dislike it. He might even hate it. In fact, if you do the math, you’ll see that there’s more than a 70% chance that the first THREE people will hate it. And if you give up then, you’ve just walked away from serving the people you set out to serve.

[Consider how much more resilient you might be if the first three people loved it. You might then persist in the face of 100 critics after that, simply because the early reviews were so positive. The order of feedback doesn’t change the ratio, but it certainly feels that way.]

Ramit’s 2018 manifesto: Rewriting your story
You and I like to believe that we make reasoned, rational decisions to do the things we do. In reality, lots of the things we do are driven by the stories we tell ourselves — the stories we may have never even thought about…and which might not even be real. This is extremely uncomfortable to contemplate.

Candice Payne Got 30 Hotel Rooms for Homeless People in Chicago During Severe Cold Snap - The New York Times
What started out as 30 rooms doubled to 60, Ms. Smith said. The rooms were only supposed to be occupied until Thursday, when temperatures in Chicago were expected to moderate. But with the donations Ms. Payne has received — more than $10,000 so far — she has been able to house the people in the hotel and feed them until Sunday.

“I am a regular person,” Ms. Payne said. “It all sounded like a rich person did this, but I’m just a little black girl from the South Side. I thought it was unattainable, but after seeing this and seeing people from all around the world, that just tells me that it’s not that unattainable. We can all do this together.”

Job Description ≠ Job Posting ≠ Job Ad

- teach recruiters copywriting

Opinion | The Biden Fallacy - The New York Times
But this is a faulty view of how progress happens. Struggle against the powerful, not accommodation of their interests, is how Americans produced the conditions for its greatest social accomplishments like the creation of the welfare state and the toppling of Jim Crow. Without radical labor activism that identifies capitalism — and the bosses — as the vector for oppression and disadvantage, there is no New Deal. Without a confrontational (and at times militant) black freedom movement, there is no Civil Rights Act. If one of the central problems of the present is an elite economic class that hoards resources and opportunity at the expense of the public as a whole, then it’s naïve and ahistoric to believe the beneficiaries of that arrangement will willingly relinquish their power and privilege.

Spotify’s Podcast Aggregation Play – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
The issue, as I laid out last year in Lessons From Spotify, is that Spotify’s primary cost driver is not, like most tech companies, fixed investments in R&D or Sales & Marketing, but rather marginal payouts to record labels. Basically, the more revenue Spotify makes the more its costs increase, which can be overcome at large enough revenue numbers — see last quarter — but limits the company’s long-term upside.

Meanwhile, for Spotify podcasts are fixed costs: that means that driving more listening flows directly to the company’s bottom line in a way that increased music listening does not. This is a very big deal — it is entirely possible that if Spotify succeeds in the space that podcasts will drive a relatively small percentage of revenue and a much larger percentage of profit.

This explains Spotify’s multi-prong approach:

Anchor provides a way to capture new podcasters, leading them either to Spotify advertising or, in the case of rising stars, to Spotify exclusives. Critically, because Spotify has access to all of the data, they can likely bring those suppliers on board at a far lower rate than they have to pay for established creators like Gimlet Media.
Spotify Advertising, as I just suggested, makes a strong play to be the dominant provider for the entire podcasting industry. Spotify Advertising is already operating at a far larger scale than Midroll, the incumbent player, and Spotify has access to the data of the second largest podcast player in the market.
Gimlet Media becomes an umbrella brand for a growing stable of Spotify exclusive podcasts. Critically, as I noted above, the majority of these podcasts come to Spotify not because Spotify pays them millions of dollars but simply because Spotify is better at monetizing than anyone else.
This will be the determinant as to whether or not Spotify’s podcast gambit succeeds: being an Aggregator doesn’t simply mean acquiring a large pool of captive customers, it means controlling the value chain such that suppliers come on to your platform on your terms because you monetize them better than anyone else, even as you capture the excess value.  gimlet-media  spotify  anchor-fm  ben-thompson  acquisitions  podcasts
