I attended the MBA World Tour in NYC and I had a great time. I met a lot of schools that were great and people who were very inspiring. I found out about this event on Facebook and clicked on the link. On the website, I registered and provided my resume. I had several schools who were interested in meeting me. I met with several colleges and learned that there is a lot to obtaining an MBA or any advanced degree. It made me realize that I really need to do more research before I choose a school. Overall, it was a really great event and I encourage people to attend events like these to get a better feel of what an advance degree can or can’t do for your career.
I did got into one of the MBA programs that I applied to. However, I plan on deferring so that I may apply to other schools as well.
Okay, so I am going back to school to fulfill a goal that I have had since I graduated college. It has been a tough to get to the point where I can even apply. I planned during my senior of college to go back to school two years after I graduated. However, the economy was really bad and finding a full-time job was very hard. I found a full-time job December of 2012 and finished getting all my recommendations from my supervisors. Business schools love working experience and recommendations from supervisors. I wanted to know make sure I had the best chance of getting in.
Recently, I had an interview for a MBA program. It was very exciting but I was happy that this application process was over. I spent three months just applying to one school. I have 3 more schools to go. I first need to ace my GMAT score which has been a challenge. I will be honest standardized testing is not my friend. I know that going to business school is the first step in creating the lifestyle and positive impact that I desire for myself.
I mentioned in my last post about making changes in my life. The purpose of making those changes is to enable my self to operate from my truth and live my life to my highest potential. I want to start living a life of authenticity and passion. Currently, I am living my life day to day trying to get to the next level which I know is normal. During this transition, I will be giving everyone who follows me up to date. If you have any suggestions on how to transition from one area to your live to another please let me know. All input is welcome. I am really eager to learn this yet.
I have been so busy restructuring my life that I forgot to make time for my blog. Since January, I have been doing a lot of soul searching. Just trying to figure out what is the next best thing. Should I go to graduate school, move and/or get a new job or do all three. I have reached a point where I have come to a place where it is time to start living the life that I want , instead of settling for what I am receiving.
I have come to the conclusion that many of my interactions with people are not authentic. In my professional and personal life, I find my self not feeling like I cannot be real with people. Why? I am still trying to figure out why. One of my conclusions, is that I have a traditional viewpoint of relationships. In our world today, social media has become the center of many of my interactions. Sometimes, I feel forced to participate in social media to maintain the friendships that I have. I realize very few of my contacts call me and ask me how I am doing. I reached a point where I am trying to step away from one sided relationships where I have to be the first one to call, text, email and etc. I want to feel as if someone is striving to maintain a relationship with me and me not being the only one trying to maintain a relationship with others.
