First off I would like to apologize for my absence, I haven’t posted since February 14th. These annoying things called life, career, Kerry Washington stalking, and MBA applications got in the way of my updating the sight as frequently as I would like. However, that is all in the past and I can now continue with the regularly scheduled program.
So as you may have guessed by the title of this post I am back in school at Duke getting my MBA. Despite hating reading and math, I’m pretty sure it will be much better than spending another year in public accounting.
Attending Duke presents a couple of unique opportunities for myself. The three most important ones as I see it are:
1. To really expand the content and offerings of jimgetsslim.com and put my personal trainer talents to good use and integrate that with the website. Hopefully if time permits we can see more videos (sorry guys Susan doesn’t live in Durham)
2. A chance to do college a bit differently. The last time I went to college I gained the freshman 50 (not fifteen) and I probably went to class about as frequently as a solar eclipse. I’m going to try and do things a little bit differently and try to balance going to class and being an ass. Hopefully this time around, I can lose weight and not add it.
3. Develop as a leader. For some reason people have always identified me as a leader. Though for the most part I have shied away from that role for a couple of reasons. Leadership often involves politics, and for the most part I hate politics. Second, I hate taking responsibility for the success of others. Often times I find that those who aspire to be leaders seldom understand the consequences of leadership. Leadership is more than a title its a lifestyle. Finally, being a clown is way easier than being Mr. Serious all the time.
Now that I have sufficiently bored you guys enough. I just want to say to look for more interesting articles, and tidbits in the coming weeks as I get back into the groove of blogging…
