FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, DC, June 11, 2015 — Does being a dad make you a better entrepreneur? That’s one of the questions tackled in the special Father’s Day issue of Be Inkandescent magazine.
For inspiration, we turn to our newest client, entrepreneur and futurist Michael Vidikan, who runs the Dallas-based futurist think tank www.FutureInFocus.com.
We celebrate the launch of his revamped website this month, which features more than 1,400 briefs on international, corporate, and consumer trends — including business, emerging, generational, and geographic reports.
In this issue, we share three articles on the topic of fatherhood based on Future in Focus briefs:
- The Next Generation of Stay-at-Home Dads
- Millennials and Parenting: New Approaches in the Digital Age
- The New American Grandparents
In our Tips for Entrepreneurs this month, we share two more research studies:
- The 2015 Manifesto: Fathers, Sensitivity, and Parenting
- The Future of Men: The 5 Types of Guys — and what they want
Also in this issue, you’ll find:
- Manly Books. In our Book of the Month column this month, you’ll find five tomes about fatherhood, parenting, and manhood — including insights into What Women Really Want in a Man.
- Man-Food. In this month’s Food column, you’ll find a hearty recipe by blogger Ree Drummond, aka: “The Pioneer Woman,” who knows cooking for cowboys is serious business.
- Ways to Sewport the Troops. Learn why business leader Pat Rullo created a Nonprofit that sews pillowcases for our soldiers.
- Craft Beer. If you love great beer, you’ve probably tossed back a bottle or two of Stone Brewing Co.‘s IPA. The #10 largest craft brewery in the nation, Stone generates $185 million in annual sales and employs more than 900 people. Why did Stone decide to open its East Coast plant in Richmond? Don’t miss our interview with the River City COO and CFO.
- A tribute to Dad. Also this month, Inkandescent founder, Hope Katz Gibbs, celebrates the life of her father on the two-year anniversary of his death. A tough and troubled, wild and wonderfully raucous man, he taught Gibbs just about everything she knows about business.
