The head coach of a pro soccer team in a horrible slump asked me for help: “We have two weeks to turn this team around to have a shot at the playoffs. What can you do?” My initial thought was probably nothing; there wasn’t enough time. But the challenge was intriguing, so I said, “I don’t know if we can do anything, but we’ll spend some time with your players and staff to see what we might be able to do.” We soon discovered that although there was camaraderie among the players, there was also a palpable, collective negativity below the surface. We asked the players what they thought was causing their slump, but they didn’t trust us and didn’t have much to say. By TC North

Doug, Chief Market Strategist for Voya Investment Management, discussed his investment philosophy – focus on the fundamentals – as well as some of the broad, real trends that he sees going on in the economy. Here are some of the main points he made in his presentation. By Todd Hauer

Web design and complex development specialist booj, founded in 2005, powers the technology behind large business platforms, including The Enterprise Network and Waste Management. From the outset, booj offered clients exclusivity in each market and only partnered with independent real estate brokerages. This helped create a network of companies to combat the franchises in their markets while still flying their own flag. The model fosters communication and camaraderie far beyond a traditional business partnership. By Mike Taylor
