YFS-Magazine-Redesign

Commit yourself to discovery, purpose and visionary pursuits of excellence in life and business.

Every so often you need to reimagine and disrupt yourself. We have a motto here at YFS Magazine: Commit yourself to discovery, purpose and visionary pursuits of excellence in life and business. To this end we’ve spent countless hours gaining feedback from readers and learning your needs, and we’ve used that research to create a new and improved version of YFS Magazine.

It’s more beautiful than ever, more flexible, and makes for a more user-friendly experience. This week we rolled out an all-new version of YFS Magazine that delivers a better experience on every device — from phones to tablets to desktops and beyond. We think you’re going to love it.

Here’s what to expect from the new YFS Magazine:

 

Mobile Responsive Design and Accessibility

As of 1Q’13 alone, 35% of visits to YFS Magazine are now from mobile phones and tablets — we wanted to make your experience seamless and easy on every device. So we introduced a new responsive design that’s optimized for smartphones and tablets. Now you can gain access to our must-read small business insight from wherever you are across multiple devices.

 

Enhanced User Experience (UX)

Our new high-impact, minimalist design embraces more white space and cuts out clutter to deliver a glossy digital experience. Additionally, our new navigation menu highlights essential content channels to help you navigate each stage of your entrepreneurship journey with ease as you plan, launch, grow and more. We made big improvements to the functionality of our site so you can easily access the content that matters the most to you.

 

Fresh and Insanely Addictive Content

We’ll continue to deliver knowledge, vision, and renewal vis-à-vis simplistic thought leadership.

We’ll continue to deliver knowledge, vision, and renewal vis-à-vis simplistic thought leadership. As a destination where entrepreneurship and pop culture collide we aim to share fresh and provocative viewpoints that represent the selective and optimistic lens of entrepreneurship culture.

We will also continue to serve up long-form content in lieu of a “quick-hit journalism” approach. Pressed for time? If you need to read our posts later, we’ve integrated a new Pocket button in each post. This free service lets you access your personal reading list at a more convenient time on your iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire or in your browser.

 

Globally Connected

We are proudly made in the U.S. and celebrate global perspectives. You may have noticed that our fresh and insanely addictive content hails from the U.S., Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and other really awesome places.  Why?

Insanely addictive content hails from the U.S., Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and other really awesome places.

Because the world economy is getting substantially larger and the mega trend of globalization will forever impact how we create value. “We see globalization—growing interconnectedness reflected in the expanded flows of information, technology, capital, goods, services, and people throughout the world—as an overarching ‘mega-trend,’ a force so ubiquitous that it will substantially shape all the other major trends in the world of 2020,” according to 2020 Global Landscape study.

This means that as you grow your business locally, nationally or internationally you’ll need market insights and cultured perspectives to work smarter. As we expand our worldview of entrepreneurship we aim to deliver—what will be essential in years to come – access.

 

That’s Not All!

While we may have brought the new YFS Magazine out of beta, it is definitely not complete. We will continue to refine the new site, fix bugs and more. This new version isn’t a finished product but rather a platform we’ll use to launch new stuff that will bring simplicity to your entrepreneurial lives.

The bottom line is this: We will continue to empower you with the tips, tricks and tools you need to build an epic business and share it with the world.

We hope you like what you see. Thanks for helping us make entrepreneurship accessible.
