Why 49ers need to knock around Jared Goff to beat Rams

first_imgStatistically speaking, the best way for the 49ers to get back on the winning track Saturday night against the Rams is to make Jared Goff’s homecoming as painful as possible.One of the knocks against the Rams’ $100 million quarterback is he can sometimes be easily rattled by a potent pass rush.Since the Rams (8-6) started the season 3-0, the numbers show the former Cal star really seems at his worst when he gets knocked around.

How Do You Determine Which Partners Will Fuel Your Success?

Most leaders have been bombarded by the idea that business partnerships are vital to their success. Partners can extend a company’s reach, add new audiences, enhance its value, expand its capabilities, and even boost its reputation by association.Marketing Week pointed out that behemoths like Amazon and Adidas have grown larger as a result of their partnerships — Adidas increased its brand value by 50 percent, mainly thanks to its expanded roster of partners, while Amazon notched a $208 billion brand value rating as a result of its partnerships. Bringing brands like Whole Foods under the Amazon umbrella powerfully changed the company’s sphere of influence.The problem is that while many leaders know they need to pursue partnerships to strengthen their businesses, it’s not clear how they can distinguish capable, dynamic partners from lackluster ones. What’s good for one company can be disastrous for another.Luckily, there are a few ways to determine which partnerships will fuel sustainable growth.1. Look for partners who share your values. Partners who share values may have different methods of fulfilling their needs, but they don’t lose sight of what’s important. Aiming for the same goal also means your business’s chances of achieving its end game are higher — with another force behind its efforts, it’s less likely to lose momentum or pivot without deep analysis.FutureFuel, a fintech platform that enables employers to help employees pay down their student debt, joined forces with partners who shared its goal of eliminating financial roadblocks. By partnering with companies like Colonial Life, FutureFuel underscored its commitment to streamlining student debt repayment and made it easier for employers to participate. “Every employer we speak to understands that multiple generations of employees are struggling with student debt,” FutureFuel’s founder and CEO, Laurel Taylor, says. Its partnerships, combined with its platform, empowers the brand to more quickly touch a larger number of those employers.2. Cultivate partnerships that are equal. Preferences and tendencies don’t necessarily have to be equal within a partnership; a partner with a higher risk tolerance can balance a partner averse to risk. But when other factors — such as money or clout — take precedence and allow one partner to steer the ship, it can damage the entire partnership. The relationship has to be built on collaboration and discussion rather than unilateral decision-making.Mike Whitaker, a serial entrepreneur and accelerator board member, says he learned that leverage lesson the hard way. In 2010, his manufacturing business went under — to the tune of a $15 million loss for Whitaker. He’d become vulnerable to his partners’ position, and when things soured, his choice of partners came back to bite him. “Partnership is strongest when the collective vision is clear, the motivations are the same and the leverage is not one-sided,” Whitaker explains. “If you feel helpless in a partnership, it is not a partnership.”3. Pinpoint partners who are enthusiastic and polite — but not too polite. Besides values, one thing that will sustain a long-term partnership is motivation. Partners who not only share values, but also goals beyond them — such as becoming the go-to provider, building a $100 million company, or establishing a household name — will thrive. But virtual strangers who enter into partnerships can fall into the habit of being polite — so polite that they hide their true interest in a project or effort until their waning enthusiasm torpedoes the whole endeavor.Neil Patel, the marketing expert behind Quick Sprout, has worked with the same partner for more than a decade. He feels their success can be attributed to one thing that holds so many others back: confrontation. “We don’t care if we hurt each other’s feelings. We say what is on our minds. Why? Because we both want to succeed and do what is best for the business. So if one of us is holding back the business or doing something wrong, we make sure we point it out,” he explains. “If you are too afraid to tell your business partner how you feel, you won’t be able to make your partnership work.”Strong partners may provide a lot of capital, expertise, or visibility. While those factors can vary, shared ideologies and equal standing have to exist for partnerships to truly help a business grow. In their absence, one partner will be left holding the bag — and that’s exactly what great partnerships were built to avoid.

A battle of Kayasthas in Patna Sahib

first_imgPatna Sahib is one of the few parliamentary constituencies of the total 40 in Bihar where the election will be keenly observed for different reasons. Shatrughan Sinha, who recently quit the BJP and joined the Congress, is pitted against BJP candidate and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who is contesting the Lok Sabha poll for the first time.Both the leaders are from Patna and belong to the upper caste Kayastha community. Both are known as “high-flying” leaders in the constituency and are said to be totally “disconnected” with the voters. With a sizeable number of Kayasthas, Patna Sahib has been a safe seat for the BJP. Out of the six Assembly segments in the constituency, five of them have BJP MLAs and one (Fatuha) has an RJD legislator. Mr. Sinha has been winning the seat for the last two consecutive terms on a BJP ticket.“Mr. Sinha is more known for his dialogue delivery and has no connection with the voters,” says a voter. According to Lok Sabha records, between 2014 and 2019, he neither asked any question nor participated in any debate and his score for introducing a private member’s bill was also zero. Also, he was present on only 67% of the days when the Lok Sabha was in session. “It’s a safe BJP seat with the sizeable upper caste Kayastha vote, but this time he will have a tough time,” says city businessman Arvind Kumar Jha. Similarly, Mr. Prasad is more known as a high-flying leader. “He has been a Minister at the Centre…but he is thoroughly disconnected with the voters, ” rued engineer Rajesh Kumar. The BJP had to face some embarrassing moments recently when during Mr. Prasad’s arrival in Patna there was a scuffle between his supporters and supporters of another party Rajya Sabha MP R.K. Sinha at the Patna airport. Mr R.K. Sinha too wanted to contest from the Patna Sahib seat on BJP ticket. The billionaire businessman is said to be more popular than Mr. Prasad among the Kayastha community as he has been regularly helping poor Kayastha families by organising mass marriages and giving employment to young men in his security agency.last_img read more
