We are eternal optimists at Croixstone Consulting and, therefore, love Inc. Magazine’s list of “The 10 Most Inspiring Books of 2018.”  Faithful readers of this blog and Croixstone’s social media channels know that we adore “Rebel Talent” by Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino.  It speaks to the benefits of constructive nonconformity and our fondness for business mavericks.  And we plan to read Bill Gates’ favorite book of all time, “The Better Angels of Our Nature”, that came out in January.

The great city that Croixstone Consulting calls home just celebrated its 250th anniversary.  Founded in honor of Her Majesty Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg on December 3, 1768, Charlotte has grown to be the second-largest banking center in the US, a title it regained in early November 2018.

Charlotte Magazine recently published a list of the 100 events (ranging from the 1700s to the 2000s) that transformed our city into what it is today.  A “must read” regardless of how long you have lived or worked in the greater Charlotte region!
