Remember when virtual reality was all the rage? What about the daily-deal explosion? We love a good story and a quick cash infusion, but when it comes down to it, we're far bigger fans of businesses built on a solid foundation -- those that can weather the economy's fits and starts; that can embrace what's trendy but don't crash when kids move on to the next big thing; that address the wants and needs of America's increasingly diverse population.

They’re successful at work, but unlike their workaholic parents, their work identity has never been key to their personal brand.
