  • Robin Chase: Excuse me, may I rent your car?

    Robin Chase: Excuse me, may I rent your car?   A decade ago, Robin Chase founded Zipcar in the US, now the largest car-sharing company in the world. Now she’s exploring the next level of car-sharing: Buzzcar, a French startup that lets people rent their own cars to others. The details are fascinating (how does insurance work, exactly?), and the larger vision (she calls it Peers, Inc.) points to a new definition of ownership and entrepreneurship.   With Zipcar, Robin Chase introduced car-crazy America to the concept of non-ownership. Now she’s flipping that model with Buzzcar, which lets you rent your own auto to your neighbors.   WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER?   If she weren’t a proven entrepreneur, you might imagine Robin Chase as a transportation geek, a dedicated civil servant, endlessly refining computer models of freeway traffic. If she weren’t such a green-conscious problem-solver, you might take her for a startup whiz. Case in point: In 2000, Chase focused her MIT business training on a car-sharing scheme imported from Europe and co-founded Zipcar, now the largest car-sharing business in the world. Using a wireless key, location awareness and Internet billing, members pick up Zipcars at myriad locations anytime they want one.   Now Chase has launched Buzzcar, a car-sharing service in France with a twist: instead of a fleet of green Zipcars, the service lets users share their own cars and make money off their unused capacity. Call it peer-to-peer auto rental.   “Robin Chase has already changed the way we drive, but she’s not satisfied. Now she wants to change the way we live as well.”  Harvard Gazette

  • Monaco – Monte-Carlo – The Luxury Industry – Fashion – Most Luxurious Place On Earth

    Monaco – Monte-Carlo – The Luxury Industry – Fashion – Most Luxurious Place On Earth Most people would think that Monte Carlo is the same as Monaco. In fact, although a very small state, Monaco is divided into five districts: Monte-Carlo, La Condamine, Monaco-Ville, Fontvieille, Moneghetti. The reason why Monte Carlo is the most popular one is that it is the touristic center, with the famous Casino and all the luxury hotels. Monaco is the second-smallest independent state in the world and at the same time the world’s most densely populated country; residents of Monaco represent 108 nations. So, what makes Monaco the ideal place to live and invest? Location: Monaco is privileged by: A special setting and a mild climate make it a fairy-tale place joining mountain and sea. It is said that in Monaco 300 days a year are bright and sunny. A strategic location, with easy access to major cities. Attractive fiscal system: Monaco’s fiscal system is characterized by the total absence of direct individual taxation. There are few exceptions mainly concerning residence issues. Economy: based on a policy of investment, development and innovation. Main areas of activity: Tourism — high quality services Trade and commerce Services — banking, shipping, insurance, real-estate, consulting, trucking, law firms. The banking sector is highly perfected, ready to answer every need Industry — main fields: chemicals, plastics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetology, electronic material, textiles , printing. Future-oriented, innovative technologies: high technology fields, biotechnology and environmental industries. Tourism and commerce represent 40% of the annual turnover. Industry is 8%. Services — banking 18%, shipping 4%. Transportation: Monaco is served by main routes and railroads and has several harbors. Health: Monaco has a first-class health infrastructure — ten pharmaceutical laboratories, the renowned Princess Grace Hospital, Hemodialysis and Cardio-Thoracic centers. Education: The educational program is similar to the French one, the differences being that children begin learning English in Elementary school and are introduced to the traditional language and history of Monaco. The diplomas obtained are the same as in France. Lifestyle: Safety: Monaco is said to be one of the safest locations. The system of safety maintaining is very well organized. There is one policeman for every 100 residents, but their discrete presence is hardly felt. There is also a video surveillance system spanning the entire surface area of the Principality, including hotels and gambling establishments. All access in and out can be blocked in a matter of minutes. There are strict regulations for anything detrimental to the harmonious atmosphere such as prohibition of indecent clothing, begging. The rate of delinquency is very low, as the court system is very strict and always gives maximum sentences. The “art de vivre” Monegasque: centuries-old tradition links to modernism; people here have preserved unspoiled the color and taste of a long-ago inherited art of living characterized by courtesy and discretion. Culture: Personalities such as Picasso, Puccini, Matisse, and Berlioz confer Monaco the fame of a center of high cultural importance. The Monte Carlo Philharmonic came into being in […]

  • Do you really Understand what a Masterpiece and Marvel that you Truly Are?

    “Beauty is all about us, but how many are blind to it? They take a look at the wonder of this earth – and seem to see nothing. Each second, we live in a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never was before and will never be again. And what do we teach our children in school? We teach them that two and two makes four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel! You are unique. In all the world there is no other child exactly like you. In the millions of years that have passed there has never been another child like you. And look at your body – what a wonder it is! Your legs, your arms, your cunning fingers, the way you move! You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must cherish one another. You must work – we all must work – to make this world worthy of its children.”  Pablo Casals “Two men look through the same bars; one sees mud and one sees stars.”  Frederick Langbridge “Man is not made by his circumstances, he is revealed by them.”   James Allen “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”  William Jennings Bryan “While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.”  Henry C. Link “People are always blaming their circumstances for being what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”  George Bernard Shaw “Men are born to succeed, not to fail.”  Henry David Thoreau “Success is ninety-nine percent failure.”  Soichiro Honda “The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but in seeing with new eyes.”  Marcel Proust
