Etsy, Jill Abramson & F* the Haters

This week we are saying "f&*$ the haters" and then talking about how it applies to business. (We drop the f-bomb in this one quite a bit. We promise it all relates back to business!) In hot topics we discover that Nylon magazine was sold to the surprise of the staff,  Etsy is going wholesale, French boys wore skirts for a cause, a girl got kicked out of prom for her dress, and Jill Abramson got kicked out of her job at the New York Times because.....well, we don't know why. Lisa also manages to mention doughnuts, meatballs, and hot dogs a number of times while talking about fashion.
