Hsieh would give out that new version of the Zappos Culture Book to prospective employees, vendors, and even customers.

For financial advisors, this can be a time to pause and think about the lessons we have learned in 2020. Investors and advisors gained a dose of humility this year as predictions and forecasts were thrown out the window. This horrible pandemic has one unexpected upside: It is causing people to want to get their financial houses in order. As an advisor, expect — and be prepared for — the unexpected and be ready to spring into action to help your clients. Financial advisors have an opportunity to reimagine their client experience around a willingness of their clients to adopt new methods, not resist them.

Heading into his administration, the relationship between President-elect Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is taking center stage. Those talks often took place by phone and with only the two men and staffers present, sources familiar with their relationship told NBC News. "But President-elect Biden — or, at the time, Vice President Biden — is quite opposite," the person continued. Reflecting on his dealings with Republicans, Obama this month expressed amusement with recent coverage of the relationship between Biden and McConnell. "I'm enjoying reading now about how Joe Biden and Mitch have been friends for a long time," Obama told The Atlantic.

Slimmon told Business Insider about what he's doing in his portfolios, including positions in cyclical and Asian stocks. "With the dollar depreciating and Asian currencies appreciating, it means that money is flowing back to Asia and that will lead, in our opinion, to a valuation closure between Asian tech, Asian growth stocks, and US growth stocks." "It could be problematic for some of the tech stocks that are trading at very, very high, very, very high multiples." "The equal-weighted S&P should outperform the cap weighted, because the cap weight is so heavily in the mega-cap tech stocks that are really lagging here." And ultimately that's going to run out of steam at some point next year."

While new revenue streams from destinations like the Caribbean will help, they won’t be enough to put airlines in the black for the year, analysts have said. The holiday period is traditionally when airlines thrive ahead of slow months in January and February. Still, demand is down by around 60% and airlines say it’s too soon to know how Christmas travel will play out. Still, airlines are hoping to build up a base of customers who feel comfortable about flying before a COVID-19 vaccine becomes widely available, eyeing the typically lucrative summer travel season. Airlines are trying to reboot overseas travel through bilateral bubbles - deals between countries on COVID-19 testing protocols that would replace or reduce quarantines - though programs have been slow to take off.

Pedestrians are reflected in the window of an Abercrombie & Fitch store in New York. Abercrombie is calling for sales in the fourth quarter to fall 5% to 10%, which would be a steeper decline than in its latest quarter. CEO Fran Horowitz told CNBC in a phone interview Tuesday that it has a plan in place to soften the blow of the closures. Abercrombie's digital sales were up 43% during the fiscal third quarter, driven by demand for its loungewear and cozy accessories. The global health crisis is also impacting Abercrombie's stores outside the U.S. As of Monday, roughly half of its stores in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region are closed due to lockdown restrictions, the company said.

Founded in 2019, Retail Ecommerce Ventures has acquired a number of distressed retail brands in recent months, including Pier 1 Imports, Modell's, and Radio Shack. Pier 1 Imports, Modell's, and Radio Shack have at least two things in common: their previous operators have all filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and they're all now part of Retail Ecommerce Ventures' growing portfolio. There are still several hundred Radio Shack stores, for example, which are operated by independent dealers and will pay a commission of their sales to REV going forward. Radio Shack was founded in 1921 by brothers Theodore and Milton Deutschmann. But, REV has high hopes that this reincarnation of Radio Shack will be successful.

Mr. Trump has frequently maligned Black leaders and cities. He applauded Black voters who chose not to vote in 2016 even as he has claimed to have done more for Black Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln. And Michigan’s four-member state canvassing board has its deadline to certify the state’s election results. At least one of its two Republican members has indicated he may not do so because of minor irregularities in Wayne County, which includes Detroit. But the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the nation’s oldest civil rights law firm, is not taking any chances with the votes from Detroit, with a population that is 79 percent Black.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

Sidney Powell, an attorney on the Trump campaign legal team seeking to subvert the presidential election result, has a history of spreading conspiracy theories. While representing Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security director, she alleged, groundlessly, that he was being persecuted by "deep state" officials. Sidney Powell, a Trump campaign attorney, shot to prominence on Thursday, alleging at a press conference that a vast conspiracy was working to steal the election from President Donald Trump. The fondness for conspiracy aligns with Powell's previous work as a lawyer for Michael Flynn, and a public supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

While agencies have been weakened by consolidation in recent years, advertising competitors are skeptical that Edelman can be a serious contender. Their pitch is that Edelman can not only come up with a big idea but also carry it out using its PR expertise that a traditional ad agency would lack. "That's where we can win against an ad agency. If you're doing something like Buy Back Friday, you need so many competencies you won't find at an ordinary ad agency." "This idea that a PR company can do what a creative or ad company can do is, to quote our President-elect Joe Biden, 'malarkey,'" the creative CEO said.

That means that an already-expensive time of year could get even pricier depending on how much you spend on an engagement ring. A 2019 survey from The Knot found the average engagement ring costs $5,900, though 10% of survey respondents spent less than $1,000. Here are five common ways to finance an engagement ring, from cash to credit to personal loans. Better than a store credit card is a 0% APR credit card that also has a sizeable welcome bonus.

Andrii Zastrozhnov | iStock | Getty ImagesWho can go through life without making some financial mistakes? In fact, so personal are matters of the pocketbook that it can be hard to definitely label any one money move a mistake. To help with that, CNBC recently spoke to financial advisors about the most avoidable blunders they see their clients make. Ignoring taxes"Tax planning is an easy way to save money if you understand the tax laws, and there are many ways to do it," said Brad Bobb, a certified financial planner and the owner of Bobb Financial in Springfield, Illinois. They find the rules daunting, or they don't want to spend the time to learn and understand them, Bobb said.

After that, weeks of FDA review remain. The agency also needs to review Pfizer's manufacturing data to make sure the facilities where the vaccine is being made are up to standard. It's easy to be confused about what to expect, with Operation Warp Speed officials promising to have trucks rolling within a day of an FDA emergency use authorization (EUA). "They're about a week and a half from that," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN on Monday. "If you look at a more typical vaccine trial you'd be sending things in batches," Frenck told CNN Thursday.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in mid-March, there were three types of financial advisory firms: high-tech, low-tech late adopters and firms somewhere in between. So, now the question is: In a prolonged remote work environment, how will traditional advisory firms get new clients and stay connected to existing clients? Advisors need a great deal of credibility to convince investors to trust them with all of their money, or even a part of it. The average age of financial advisors in the U.S. is somewhere between 51 years and 55 years. Advisory firms are not immune to this shift in client expectations.

More than a dozen retail pharmacy chains have agreed to partner with the federal government to serve as Covid-19 vaccination sites under a plan developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The playbook sketches out how Covid-19 shots would get to hospitals, clinics and other vaccination sites, starting with initial supplies for health-care workers and others at high risk of infection. The pharmacies would order the Covid-19 vaccines from the federal government, which would then supply them, according to the CDC’s plan. U.S. regulators haven’t approved any Covid-19 vaccines but several are in late-stage testing. Pharmacies that aren’t part of the program could still participate with Covid-19 vaccination and should work with local officials to do so, according to the CDC.
