Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! This is the show host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
Have you ever heard of Upromise? This is a fantastic free program that allows you to quickly save money for college for yourself, a child, or for anyone. This is how it works:
When you join, a portion of your eligible spending gets deposited into your Upromise account automatically. You can invite your family and friends to help you save too by linking their rewards to your account!
The really cool part is that you get credit for spending on items that you're already buying anyway--groceries, gas, clothes, bed and bath accessories, restaurants, travel, books, magazines, insurance, gifts, computers, office supplies, and tons more--at over 40,000 different well-known brand store and services.
This college savings program is a no-brainer for yourself, or for anyone you love that has education in their future.
"Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love."
Why get an MBA degree? Well, in this show I share my list of the Top 10 Reasons NOT to get one. This is essential information and food for thought if you are considering making the sacrifice to go for an advanced business degree.
And if you're looking for schools that offer a specific academic program or degree, I've found an excellent tool. Take a look at the upper right side of the blog, mbaworkinggirl.com. This search tool is a comprehensive list of campus and online schools that offer degrees from Art to Veterinary and everything in between.
In the podcast, I also admit to being a list-o-holic and talk about the features of a free web service called Remember the Milk.
Thanks for being a listener and blog reader - I've got lots of great shows coming up this year. If you have any suggestions for improvements or topics, please send email to [email protected]
Do Good Work, Laura
