MBA Takes A Toll

Agree or disagree, you’ll often hear me talk about the value of, and expectations the student places on, an MBA. Overwhelming I see people get an MBA thinking it will propel their careers forward. Look around in your own world and do the math.

And of course, I have to take the road less traveled. You know, create an LLC, with the investment being not in a degree (paper) but in a profit (paper). It’s called not following the The Herd, because where the Herd is going is, well, a big pasture, or maybe the slaughter house.

Anyway, I’m climbing a mountain. A mountain that looks like the one my recent MBA degree graduate describes below.

“I received an incredible amount of support, internally from my classmates throughout the last 19 months. My family also put up with a significant amount of disengagement and time away or locked in a room because of traveling and the amount of time that I had to spend either studying by myself, or studying with my Cohort.”

Marketing Director Position Opening

Not Sure Where It Leads To...
Not Sure Where It Leads To...

There is currently an Assistant Marketing Director position open at Mid Life Celebration, LLC.

The head of Marketing (me) is looking for tribal members to spread the idea – Live, before you die.

You saw the numbers the other day.

Here’s another.

Mid Life Celebration, LLC has logged 2,630 blog posts.

People who are driven do not know how to fail, because when they fail (and they always do), they simply pick themselves up and begin again.

Failing isn’t failing. Quitting is.

Ever think like that?

It’s one of the key traits we’re looking for in the Assistant Marketing Director position.

Less Than Half Benchmarking

This Hangs In My Office
Christopher Needed To Be Spoon Fed

Note: This is sort of a spoof, a play on words.

There’s a new personal transformation company I found(ed), called Less Than Half Benchmarking.

Well, that’s really only partially true. It’s not called Less Than Half Benchmarking. It’s called Mid Life Celebration.

But less than half of you reading this will visit  Mid Life Celebration today.

Doing stuff that matters is hard work.

And even fewer will visit another benchmarking site, where there is a temptation to view excellence as showing off.

I promise to help you think differently.

You promise to not expect to be spoon-fed.
