    3. The Difference between Innovating in a Start-up and Innovating in an Established Company

      The Difference between Innovating in a Start-up and Innovating in an Established Company

      When people think about innovation, they're most likely to think of start-up businesses than established companies. It makes sense--start-ups usually have smaller teams with less rigid structures and processes that allow them to enact change quicker. But that doesn't mean that bigger and older organizations can't innovate--they need to, but just in a different way.

      This article from Leadership Now discusses how established companies can innovate:

      The good news for established organizations, however, is that nobody is more likely to succeed than they are in their innovation efforts. Unlike startups, established organizations have tremendous resources. They have ...

      The Connection between Zzzs and Thyroid Disorders

      Traditional thyroid treatments focus on diet, medicines, and exercise. While these have been scientifically proven to help improve thyroid conditions, there is an important component that appears to be missing: sleep.

      Gretchen Lidicker, M.S., writes for MBG Health on the connection between getting quality shut-eye and thyroid disorders:

      If you have hyperthyroidism, you're likely to be jittery and suffering from insomnia. And ironically, this lack of sleep can harm your thyroid even further.

      Why Women Are More Susceptible to Impostor Syndrome

      A significantly higher number of women suffer from intense and at times debilitating self-doubt due to a phenomenon called "impostor syndrome". If you've ever had the feeling that you're not really good at all and you've just somehow fooled everyone to think you are, then you might be suffering from impostor syndrome.
