As a freelancer and small business owner, having a reliable, multi-functional mobile device is essential. Samsung recently #Unpacked its latest phone, the Galaxy Note8, featuring a dual camera with optical image stabilization, S Pen stylus — and a bigger-than-ever screen. Does bigger mean better when it comes to business? I talked to Samsung's Eric McCarty to find out.

E-School for Girls: The Next Generation of Entrepreneurs

As a small business owner, there are few things I'm more passionate about than helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs. (I even give them a plug in my latest for Forbes.)

Over the last year, I've had the honor of working with the E-School for Girls pre-college program, which gives young women the opportunity to learn how to innovate and create their own businesses. (Learn more about our February launch event with Microsoft and NYU.)

This summer, I mentored the girls during their two-week dedicated program and watched as they learned valuable skills like interviewing clients, honing their writing skills, building a great bio and LinkedIn profile - and creating a professional social media presence.

We even hosted a pitch contest (think: Shark Tank) where students presented their original business ideas to a panel of entrepreneurs, including yours truly.
