Summary

Steps is a business book, but it is more than an ordinary business book. It encompasses the concept of business + dance = brand philosophy, and yet the term branding is rarely mentioned. Here, in Steps, I am suggesting that you should not even consider building your professional brand unless you are willing to do the hard work the same way a dancer learns technique, movement and artistry. You can’t build a brand unless you are willing to explore excellence. 
Through hard work and devotion, I have come to know that dance is a great metaphor for life and for business. From my world view, I equate life with business. And good business practices are as essential to your lives as every breath we take. Good business means you are performing well—to the best of your ability. Whether anyone is watching you or not does not matter. What matters is you do your best to hit your own marks.

    ‘A story can lure us into gaps and spaces that feel sacred in their silence.’ —Kim Scott
    
    In The Best Australian Stories 2013, Kim Scott assembles the most exceptional short fiction of the last year and invites readers to build ‘a rare and intimate relationship’ with these talented writers, one that is ‘essential to storytelling in print, whether on paper or screen.’
    
    These stories conjure disparate moods, from delight to melancholy. A family Christmas lays bare a relationship grown cold. A father pursues the art of the birdcall in an effort to speak his son’s language. A cat becomes a conduit for a neighbour’s true feelings while Brisbane floods. Striking new voices blend seamlessly with those of celebrated storytellers to form a collection that will leave an indelible impression long after the last word is read.

    Katharine the Great - Katharine...

    In the early 1970s, Katharine Graham was one of the most powerful women on earth. The publisher of the Washington Post, she published the Pentagon Papers, which shed light on the darkest corners of the war in Vietnam, and she oversaw the investigation into Watergate that would bring down President Richard Nixon. Her story is one of the greatest triumphs in the history of American journalism, but she may have had a secret ally: the Central Intelligence Agency. In this stunning biography, veteran reporter Deborah Davis unearths the truth about the Washington Post and the family that ran it.
    
    Upon the first printing of Katharine the Great, the original publisher pulled the book under pressure from Katharine Graham and her editor-in-chief, Benjamin Bradlee, who demanded that it be destroyed. Nothing in the book was ever disproven, and it stands today as a testament to dogged reporting and the unmatched power of the intelligence community. 
    
    Don't miss the new Steven Spielberg film, The Post, starring Meryl Streep as Katharine Graham and Tom Hanks as Benjamin Bradlee.

    My Life During The OJ Simpson Trial

    The words “Not Guilty” set one man free, but somehow made all African-Americans, no matter their varied opinions, the enemy. 
    “… the defendant, Orenthal James Simpson, not guilty of the crime of murder…” 
    The Trial of the Century had come to an end. The verdict hit the airwaves and the eyes of the nation descended on the city that made superstars out of attorneys.  
    As an African-American recent college graduate living and working in the city, that verdict had a profound effect on me and the life I made for myself. The trial and the shocking verdict served as the impetus for what would be months of turmoil and unrest.  
    Protests, debates, and incessant banter from both sides of the aisle permeated in our membranes. Lives were changed. Alliances were formed. Mistrust became the rule, not the exception. The words “Not Guilty” set one man free, but somehow made all African-Americans, no matter their varied opinions, the enemy. No one cared to seek our perspective. No one bothered to ask the right questions. We were clumped together as if our stories were one and the same. 
    From the horrific Rodney King assault, to the unsettling residuum following the O.J. Simpson verdict, my life changed in profound ways.
