Welcome to the launch of "TheStreet Rewind" our first video newsletter!
It seems appropriate that we kick things off just as summer is ending, and change is already in the air! This newsletter will have plenty of ideas for your weekend. Enjoy it all now or take it in slowly over the next couple of days. It's the perfect wake me up on your Saturday morning as you're drinking your first cup of coffee. Maybe your cup of joe will be pumpkin spice flavored? You can admit it. Let's face it, New Yorkers know summer is officially over when pumpkin spice begins popping up at places like StarBucks Corp. (SBUX) - Get Starbucks Corporation Report or Trader Joe's. Even Jim Cramer is talking Pumpkin Spice!
There are other signs that summer is over... Open toed sandals and summer dresses are giving way to hoodies. I'm seeing (and feeling) lots of new backpacks on my morning 4/5 commute to Wall Street. It's a good reminder that this weekend might be my last chance to get back to school supplies for my college bound daughter and her high-school bound sister! It might be your last chance, too. Be sure to check out TheStreet.com's special report "The Business of Back to School." It's the perfect guide with videos and stories like Eric Reed's "The Best Back-to-School Technology" or "Dorm Room Basics" by our Lindsey Rittenhouse. Oh, we also have a new video feature. Be sure to check out Scott Gamm's new series Decipher, a money series aimed at millennials. C'mon, we've all got one in our lives (Mine just graduated college and got his first job!). Send this link their way, I know I sure will! This week Scott tackles "How to Go About Getting Your First Credit Card!"
If you're not really ready to face the end of summer reality... maybe you'll want to check out Our story by Tracy Byrnes about two of the world's biggest wine families and how they came together to make liquid gold! There's also a charming video with former Food Network star Willie Degel. You'll fall in love with him and enjoy his first person accounts as a restaurant tycoon. We sat down with him at Uncle Jacks in NYC. My favorite line: The restaurant business is war! And there are a few other videos to enjoy like our series #AlphaRising, we sit down with some of the most influential women in business who share their stories of success that will inspire and teach a new generation of investors and executives. Our story and video this week is about "How A Girl from India Came to Rule JPM's North America M&A Group."
