Do not read this if you are easily grossed out.

Last night at a party I met a woman who left San Francisco after her dog walker told her the dogs were getting addicted to meth-laced feces.

Apparently they were running around the parks looking for it and then getting high. This woman shared her story to a small crowd, so someone piped in.

"I left San Francisco after my second child got punched by a homeless man wielding a liquor bottle."

The third person in the group said "we left San Francisco after my business got robbed the 15th time."

Seeing a concerning trend but perhaps still too early to tell.

Of all the people I've asked to guest star for @GrowthPathLabs ~80% of the women I've asked have said no (all cited being too busy with personal life), and ~80% of the men have said yes. Guest starring requires ~2-3 hrs of work.

It can be a great way to share your expertise, build your personal brand, and pay it forward.

I wonder if women are typically more hesitant to offer support to colleagues... That may explain some of the mentorship gap.

This is why more companies are going to be leaving SF.

Advocates call it a "tiny half a percent".

I call it $39 million that could be given back to employees and shareholders. It's easy to say you "believe in higher taxes."

I too "believe in high taxes."

But facts don't care about your "beliefs."

And the fact is, company leaders have a fiduciary duty to their shareholders...

Controversial POV:

I think middle managers are the most undervalued employees in an organization.

They are the butt of jokes, people think they just want "more meetings" - but they are actually the bones & muscles of any functioning organization.

Do you agree? Name me a high performance organization - big or medium-sized - that functions without a strong set of middle managers.

People say that housing is a human right. Healthcare is a human right. Good jobs are a human right.

Think about housing for a second... What makes housing?

Is the left anti-capitalism? Is the average Democrat anti-capitalism?

Astounding numbers just dropped from the San Francisco Board of Education.

See "ready for high school" vs "chronically absent" and graduation rate. Image Also, this.
