What we buy for the 4th ; Best burger in America ; Would you book a surprise vacation?

“Fun is one of the most important and underrated ingredients in any successful venture.”
— Richard Branson
What we buy for the 4th of July: Food, yes. Booze and fireworks, not so much

The Fourth of July is the quintessential grill and chill American holiday. This year, that’s exactly what most people plan to do, according to the digital savings site, RetailMeNot.

But they won’t kick back in exactly the ways you might expect. According to the survey, fewer than half of American adults said they planned to purchase alcoholic beverages to celebrate the Fourth. And just 31% said they expected to buy fireworks.

So, what’s the top purchase? Overwhelmingly, it’s food to prepare at home. Seventy-three percent of those surveyed by RetailMeNot said they’d be picking up groceries for their festivities and planned to spend an average $89.

Don’t let your handicap hold you back: 3 tips from a dyslexic entrepreneur who built a $3.6 million company

Are you worried a weakness is keeping you from your optimal career growth? Stan Gloss, cofounder and CEO of BioTeam, didn’t let his disability keep him down. Here are some tips that helped this former college professor become a successful entrepreneur.

  • Find Support: Having the strength to reach out for help can be tough. “I had friends who read to me. I used to form study groups and listen to everyone else talk about stuff so I could pass. I made it through school with a quarter of the books the other students read,” Gloss said.
  • Know you strengths: If you’re lacking in one area, you might have to become skilled at another, “Because I couldn’t read, I developed an ability to speak and question and see the connections between things.” Gloss said.
  • Lead by example: A study by the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity found that one-third of American entrepreneurs surveyed said they were dyslexic! “A lot of people who are dyslexic won’t tell you because they’re ashamed. But there are many famously successful dyslexics. Richard Branson. Walt Disney. Brian Grazer. Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert,” said Gloss. 
How one teen made $300,000 carrying groceries

While many side hustles might buy a new pair of jeans, 16-year-old Chauncy Black’s part-time gig has brought in enough money for his family to get a whole new house. The Memphis teenager started with a sweet tooth, offering to help carry groceries outside a Kroger’s supermarket in exchange for a dozen doughnuts. That's when good Samaritan Matt White showed up. 

“He had me at donuts. lol,” White wrote on the Go-Fund-Me page, “Chauncy’s Chance.”

But instead of just the pastries, White took Black on a shopping spree to buy groceries for his entire family. After driving Black home and witnessing the teen’s impoverished living conditions, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter set up a fundraising campaign for Black’s family. More than 13,000 people have donated to the account created on June 13, showing generosity and a mutual love for doughnuts can pay off.

Book your next vacation with this travel company, and you won't even know where you're going. It's a surprise
Sometimes, you've just got to get away, but the effort it takes to research and plan a trip could be a drag. That's where Pack Up + Go comes into play.

You take a quick survey on their website, and they'll send you off to a mysterious place. You won't know where you're going until you're all packed up at the airport, ready to board a flight.

Pack Up + Go was launched in January, 2016 by 23-year-old Lillian Rafson.

She says the company avoids more obvious choices like New York City, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, figuring those are places where people would plan trips themselves. “We do send some customers to bigger cities like Chicago or Miami, but my favorite trips are to mid-size or small cities: Portland, Maine, or Burlington, Vermont,” Rafson explains. “Every city has a lot to offer. We’re giving cities that people aren’t necessarily seeking out organically a chance to shine.”

So far, Pack Up + Go has been generating a lot of buzz: Shark Tank reached out to Rafson, and a TV production company wants to create a show around the idea. But for now, she’s keeping it small and hands-on so that she can focus on sending travelers to places they didn't ask to go to.

 
Would you take a mystery trip?

1. Yes! Love the element of surprise

2.  No way! I'm not that crazy

3. I don't care. I just need to get away ASAP
