Back At It

Finally, I’m starting to feel better and get some work done.  I’ve taken prescreens for work, started researching industry and company information and am starting to read some pertinent business books again (mostly on cash flow and best practices in large companies.)
It has been a long time since I’ve gotten to work in the real [...]

Account Deleted…Time To Graduate!

7AM:  [...]

And I'm Off…

I’m off to school orientation today! I was accepted to the Carlson School about two months ago and will be in attendance full time for 21 months starting in early August, 2008.
