"Very good points. You would think your graduate degree would have more merit than being depicted in this economy! I am pursuing a second Master's in Project Management to see if this helps with the transition into the PM career field.  "

PMP - Is It Worth It?

I was recently told by a recruiter that he couldn't present me to the client as a candidate for a PM role without my PMP certification.  Not only was this frustrating, it now poses a great question...is it worth it?  I already have a Master of Arts in Diplomacy - International Trade & Commerce, and over 4 years of direct PM experience on an international scale.I looked into the PMP yesterday and it is quite expensive to get all of the required education hours.  In a world where a lot of…See More

There are no good ideas or bad ideas....there are only different kinds of ideas that suit different kinds of people.  What kind of lessons for management and innovation can you take from the Secret Sauce?

WARNING: You're About to Be Hit By a BUS!

Posted on September 19, 2011 at 8:30pm 5 Comments

Well maybe not a bus...

But you are about to be hit by 6 tons of space junk, formerly known as UARS.  The satellite is expected to make impact sometime this weekend.  Impact?  Yes impact.

 

Most of the 6 ton flying chunk of expired scientific junk will burn up on re-entry, but according to NASA there will be several pieces that will be large enough to reach the ground.  No worries though...they have a 71% chance of hitting water (that is how much of the Earth is covered…

Just Say No...But Don't Be a Jerk!

I was scrolling around the WWW and came across a great blog titled The Art of Manliness.  Besides providing great tips on all things manly...from opening doors, to 5 great things to do with a rotisserie chicken...There was a post about being able to say "no".

 

As a young professional, I find it very hard to say "no" sometimes.  However, on the flip side of being the "yes woman" is an individual who is obsessed…

Hi there! It's been about 2 years since we emailed back and forth. Still interested in the Foreign Service process?  I'm still at State, but looking at oter agencies on USA JOBS now.  How've you been with the recession and gloom?

Candace, it would depend on what you are trying to lease vs buy, office equipment, real estate, cars, etc.  I did one of these for copiers many years ago and can try to retrieve it.  Google gave hundreds of results that may be able to help you.

Hi there! Yes I am making my peculiar brand of progress. Thank you for your gracious concern- I always appreciate a heads up.  What is the first step I should take here in this forum?

Great - enjoy. As I like to tell people, "If you enjoy it, or it offends you, please tell your friends."   Seriously, if you like it, it would be helpful if you commented on the social network sites.  That's how books are sold these days.  Better yet - I believe you said you bought it from B&N - you can post a review on their site.   Regards
