When you live or work in the incredibly vibrant San Francisco, in terms of real estate news, the glass is always half empty or really, really empty, especially if you are a new home buyer.
Hey? Get a larger glass, right? Maybe.
But then again, maybe not.
That just means the water is so deep, you might have to swim in it.
Here is some recent news from an informative source that speaks through a clear glass.
On March 7, 2019, the knowledgeable business team at businessinsider.com educated, “By the end of 2019, San Francisco may be seeing an influx of newly minted millionaires, reported Nellie Bowles for The New York Times. Fueling this heavy cash flow, she wrote, are several tech start-ups hoping to go public, amongst them Uber, Lyft, Slack, Postmates, Pinterest, and Airbnb.”
Conservative estimates predict hundreds of billions of dollars will flood into the greater San Francisco Bay Area in the next year, creating thousands of new millionaires and new home and condo buyers.
Can those who work traditional 9-5 jobs compete?
How is that glass looking for them?
San Francisco is full of female entrepreneurs who are making the glass filled with dynamic green energy. It seems like at least every other time we look up rising female entrepreneurial stars, their company is based in San Francisco.
Great minds think alike.
Rashmi Sinha is one such entrepreneur.
Rashmi Sinha went to University of California, Berkeley for a postdoc where she switched her focus to human-computer interaction.
She also earned an M.A. and a B.A. in Psychology from Allahabad University.
Her company is thriving and provides an incredible benefit to professionals who need to connect, communicate and often sell to others.
LinkedIn has just acquired her professional content sharing platform SlideShare for $119 million in cash and stock.
Incredible. Great job Rashmi.
SlideShare was officially launched on October 4, 2006.
In December 2013, SlideShare revamped its site, offering more of a visual spin on the homepage, including larger images.
LinkedIn SlideShare is a hosting service for professional content including presentations, infographics, documents, and videos. Users can upload files privately or publicly in PowerPoint, Word, PDF, or OpenDocument format.
Content can then be viewed on the site itself, on hand held devices or embedded on other sites.
The website is considered to be similar to YouTube, but for slideshows.
The website was originally meant to be used for businesses to share slides among employees more easily, but it also has expanded to become a host of a large number of slides that are uploaded merely to entertain.
Although the website is primarily a slide hosting service, it also supports documents, PDFs, videos and webinars.
SlideShare also provides users the ability to rate, comment on, and share the uploaded content.
The website gets an estimated 80 million unique visitors a month, and has about 38 million registered users.
In February 2011 SlideShare added a feature called Zipcasts.
A Zipcast is a social web conferencing system that allows presenters to broadcast an audio/video feed while driving the presentation through the Internet. Zipcasts also allows users to communicate during the presentation via an inbuilt chat function.
Here is what her team have to say about themselves and they say it so well at slideshare.net, “Build your knowledge quickly from concise, well-presented content from top experts. Instead of scrolling through pages of text, you can flip through a SlideShare deck and absorb the same information in a fraction of the time.
Get up to speed on any topic. You’ll find content from experts in every imaginable field.
Show what you know through a presentation, infographic, document or videos. Visual formats help you stand out and resonate more with your readers. When you upload to SlideShare, you reach an audience that’s interested in your content – over 80% of SlideShare’s 80 million visitors come through targeted search. This can help you build your reputation with the right audience and cultivate more professional opportunities.”
Look at some of the names of consumers that uses SlideShare’s services.
Ms. Sinha continues to impress.
SlideShare continues to grow.
Both continue to greatly impress.
Rashmi represents a growing trend in female entrepreneurs who are swiftly and powerfully changing the business landscape.
There are a growing number of groups that hope to inspire and organize them across the globe.
One of them is the eWomenNetwork. They are amazing.
At ewnconf.com they share, “We are the Premier Success System for Women Entrepreneurs. If you are looking to launch, grow and scale your business you have found the ultimate resource. We are a network of over 500,000 women connected through 118 chapters across North America. We conduct nearly 1,500 events and host the #1 women’s entrepreneur Conference, of its kind, in North America annually. We are dedicated to helping one million fulfilled women achieve one million in annual revenue. CNN recognizes the eWomenNetwork Foundation as an American Hero as a result of our philanthropic outreach to those in need.”
Very good to know. What an exceptional service.
The team at mbda.gov add, “The conference attracts the crème de la crème of business women, ranging from those who are just starting their business to those who are scaling and reaching or exceeding the million dollar mark. The education, opportunities, collaboration and connections offered at the eWomenNetwork Conference serve business owners and entrepreneurs in all phases of business.”
High praise indeed.
The business world continues to be an incredibly exciting place. Especially with the infusion of new female business leaders and entrepreneurs like Rashmi.
As their numbers increase and their innovations grow, please remember, the glass that they provide for us as consumers is always half-full.
