Think about a new talk show that NBC or CBS wanted to produce that included all David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and Ellen DeGeneres. It could be a nightmare, but hey, it could also be legendary. Not counting the various preferences in content and comedy, there are ways they each like to run their show, ways they prefer to tell their jokes, ways they interview guests, etc. That could cause disengagement, animosity, jealousy, and basically spark a fire from them being in the same room together. However, because of their diverse experiences, talents, skills, ideas, it could be the best talk show to ever air on the planet.
Having just watched the very entertaining and star studded ‘All The Money In The World‘ with that great theatre powerhouse Kevin Spacey, ahem, I mean Christopher Plummer.

Now, in classic form, James has decided to rip up his own playbook and start again, literally on page one, with his new book Reinvent Yourself.
There’s a serious problem with most popular books about entrepreneurship: they assume that all readers want to quit their jobs and go blazing into the start-up world. But if you have a family to support and a mortgage to pay, a job that provides a steady income and health insurance is difficult, if not impossible, to give up. Where can the ordinary person, who doesn’t have a million in the bank and an MBA to their name, go for entrepreneurship advice?

At the beginning of the 1800’s, food storage was a major concern for America. Across the water in England, a man named Bryan Donkin invented Canning.

One brand bore instructions to open with a hammer and chisel! Soldiers usually attacked them with bayonets or fired bullets into them. The real breakthrough came when a lighter material was used, this in turn enabled mass production. The stage was set for Ezra J. Warner, the man that invented the Can Opener. On January 5, 1958 the first can opener was sold. It made Ezra wealthy and famous.
