While texting on Tinder, she suggested I might get to play with her kitty. We agreed that we would take her cat out to the park some time but that we would start with dinner and a drink. There were no other hints to me that anything thrilling might happen beyond my riding my motorcycle from Denver to Boulder for the meeting. Sitting together at an Italian restaurant, we got past the cat conversation and progressed to politics and music, jokes and laughter.

As the waitress picked up the check, my date invited me back to her … [Read more...] about I’m a Veteran With PTSD. The Medication I Take Makes Dating Difficult.

Two-year-old Kayden Elijah Kinckle had his right foot and left leg amputated in January. But the little boy certainly hasn't lost spirit. Kayden recently took his first steps on his new prosthetics with the aid of a walker. In a YouTube video posted by his mother, the little boy bears a huge grin, exclaiming "I got it!" with each step he takes. Along with the YouTube video, his mother posted the story of Kayden's spirited triumph over a series of health problems. While in utero, Kayden developed a condition called omphalocele, a kind of abdominal wall defect that causes the intestines, liver, bladder and sometimes other organs to develop outside the body.

I'm grappling with a question of our times: When does something splashed on Facebook or broadcast via Twitter become bad for my company? The problem is not with my staff but with me. Specifically, photos that I posted on my Facebook page in September after returning from Burning Man, the weeklong anything-goes festival. Yes, I know it isn't the typical CEO getaway. That's part of the problem. First, a little bit about me. I run Joie de Vivre, a company that operates a collection of boutique hotels in California. I founded the business 22 years ago, when I was 26 and a freshly minted MBA from Stanford. The first property I bought was a pay-by-the hour motel in a seedy part of San … [Read more...] about Chip Conley: Should I Take My Burning Man Pics off Facebook?
