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.”
