On The Hustle – don’t settle for mediocrity
Finkelstein believes the real path to success and upward mobility stems from merit and an ability to better execute. While with experience comes expertise, organizations shouldn’t focus solely on longevity criteria when evaluating team members, projects or your organization’s future. The person or company with the best product, service, or offering will ultimately win. So hustle, execute and win!
For Campuses: Textbook to Checkbook
Finkelstein was an entrepreneur even while in school. Among the lessons learned, he talks about balance, networks and the value of failure along the way. “Balance is everything, you need to give 100% to both your education and your business;” this is a skill set that he continues to work on daily.
The Future of Retail & E-Commerce
The view of the future is not one where online and offline are separate, but it all being commerce. Whether you buy it in a store and have it shipped to you, or you buy online and pick it up in a store, the future of retail is going to be in commerce in general, not a separation of online and offline. Right now 5% of retail sales are done online in Canada, and that’s going to grow very rapidly. Currently we have brick and mortar and we have “click”. Finkelstein shows how the future is “brick and click” whereby retailers sell online and off-line. Are you ready?
