JOIN A ROCK BAND

One of the best experiences that I have had was playing in a  rock band...  These are some of the things I was able to learn during my tenure as 'the bass player and de-facto manager':


  • Group Dynamics
  • Dealing With Difficult Personalities
  • Listening To Others
  • Multitasking
  • Wearing Multiple Hats
  • Leadership
  • Organization and Planning Skills
  • Negotiation
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Psychology
  • Budgeting
  • Resourcefulness

Just to name a few.

So go out and join a rock band - as an alternate to getting an MBA...it is a lot more fun!

RICHARD BRANSON

Just heard a great quote by Richard Branson:  "The brave will eventually die, but the cautious would have never lived.'

Wow...  time to take some risks, be different, stand up and break whatever chains are holding you back.
