We featured New York Times best-selling author Ashley Merryman on our September 2013 show (click here for that video).

Her latest book, "Top Dog" is about the science of winning and losing. Here's a few suggestions gleaned from their research.

If you're trying to launch your own business or startup, you can learn a lot by watching the Friday night ABC reality show in which people pitch their inventions and biz ideas to actual investors. Good article from Fast Company magazine.

Just thinking you have an edge, can actually lead to better performance on certain tests, according to this article in Scientific American magazine... which is similar to what Ashley Merryman's "Top Dog" book says. Here's the SA link -- fascinating stuff!

Remember That Funny Drunk Photo of You?
Yep... Your Prospective Boss Saw It Too!

That's the gist of a recent New York Times article, which says nearly half of all employers are now checking social networks such as Facebook, Myspace and Twitter when screening potential hires.

Out of 2,600 managers and human resource workers surveyed, over one third said they REJECTED job candidates because of content they found on the web related to that person. Provocative photos were the number one reason they chose not to hire someone. Many cited references to drinking and drug use on web sites as red flags.

Another red flag was bad-mouthing former employers or colleagues online, and poor spelling or grammar. So if you must vent, at least make sure you display decent writing skills in your talk-stink posts, eh?
