Almost 10 years ago, I graduated with an MBA from Wharton.
I went there to become an entrepreneur. I left with some great friends and experiences. But, spending 2 years and a few hundred thousand $$$ to become an "entrepreneur" was a stupid idea. So stupid in fact, that I thought other people should learn from my mistakes.
So, I wrote a book called Rethink the MBA about the reasons NOTto get an MBA. This book is completely free to download, because it's a public service announcement. At the time, it was also my form of therapy for failing so miserably at trying to start a business after school and then struggling to find a job with a "bulletproof" MBA.
It took me years of nights and weekends to write Rethink the MBA, and many more years to realize that sharing my experiences is more meaningful than just about anything else I do, outside of being a father and husband.
I really want to help people that are navigating the (insanely expensive) world of higher education here in the U.S. Unfortunately, higher education is a "sacred cow" in this country. But, it's just not enough for these institutions to have amazing professors and great course content anymore. To be valuable to society and justify their existence, they also need to be to be cost effective. Unfortunately, today, for many career paths, they simply are not.
I hope you enjoy the book, and don't forget to download Rethink the MBA here.
Thanks for reading!
