As an entrepreneur, one of the biggest challenges you will face will be building your brand. The ultimate goal is to set your company and your brand apart from the crowd. If you form a strategy without doing the research, your brand will barely float - and at the speed industries move at today, brands sink fast.

Working with lots of old media clients, I've had a front-row seat on the ascension of new social players and the decline of traditional news outlets.

It may be coincidence that the decline of newspapers has corresponded with the rise of social media. Or maybe not.

Companies and managers that find a way to harness social media stand to gain.

Providing better computer science education in public schools to kids, and encouraging girls to participate, is the only way to rewrite stereotypes about tech and really break open the old-boys' club.

As technology has improved, our digital lives have only grown more tangled and cluttered.
