All the insane things I have done for a job

Oct 8, 2016 by

dreamjob_crop380w_crop380wWe all dream about a great career and it’s so easy to forget all insane jobs we have had before our dream job become the reality. Off the top of my head, I once e-mailed the assistant director of a commercial I worked on as a production assistant after drinking a bottle of wine and told him I thought he was dreamy. He was very good-looking.

He wrote back telling me that he was married. I didn’t know. That was before I reached a ripe enough age to take notice of a man’s left ring finger. What a cow I was. He wrote that he would keep me in mind for future jobs – he liked my directness.

Is Cheating on School Tests Wrong?

Sep 29, 2016 by

Time and time again I notice that students are copying each other in high school (mostly just homework). They do this because either a) they don’t get what’s going on but don’t want to get a bad grade or b) they are lazy. A lot of the material learned in high school is never used again in your life.

My MBA Skills come from tryouts

Aug 5, 2016 by

I always say that I learned important MBA lessons by spending most of my weeknights preparing for the play, and my weekends in costume and make-up. So when I decided to study MBA I was convinced that knew enough and I just needed to find some accredited programs that will allow me to earn an MBA without worrying about not high enough GMAT score.  I obviously found it and I’m ready to show my skills . So what did I learned you ask?

I learned what a firm deadline is. It never occurred to me that an assignment’s due date could be extended because Opening Night was Opening Night.
