I started my new MBA class on Friday. It was actually really awesome. The class is all about starting a new venture and the professor told some amazing stories about businesses that he’s triumphed. The following is paraphrased
Prof: “and if you follow the strategies of this book you can almost assure success because it goes about product development in a more surefire way. There will be times when you can’t think of ideas and are struggling to get off the ground but when you do you’ll succeed. At one point I was unemployed for 14 month and that was a very stressful time. But when I finally got the business off the ground I was earning about $30,000 a month.”
Unfortunately, as we were leaving class a student asked for the syllabus
“oh, I’m sorry. I’ll have a syllabus for you next time. Just read the book and we’ll talk about it in our next class.”
“how far should we go in the book.”
“no, you misunderstood me. Read the book. Finish it for next class.”
Anyway, the countdown is on. It’s been a long time since this post. But I’m finally on the home stretch. I have a notably finite number of classes left at school (both schools), in fact, I think I can change the units from months to days to hours left.
