      What You Can Learn From The World's Most Innovative Companies Of 2017

      On September 4, 1921, my grandfather arrived in the United States, 17 years old, with just $25 in his pocket. He became a dressmaker, and in 1937 received a patent for what he called "a new, original, and ornamental design for a Dress Ensemble."

      When It Comes To Productivity, More Is Not Always Better
