Book DescriptionWhat are you going to do with your lucky lottery ticket?
That's a question every MBA faces. A lot of time and money has been invested in you. Once you graduate, you're supposed to cash in that ticket for as much money and status as you can. Your parents and peers expect it, and with thousands of dollars of student loans, you may feel that there's really no other choice. You can't risk "wasting" that expensive education. It's the safe thing to do. Isn't it?
Not necessarily. In fact, when you measure success by more than money, what you think is your safest choice may actually be the riskiest. The “safe” choice can lead to enormous psychological and spiritual pain, costing you a chance to live your life. As Ralph Waldo Emerson observed, “Sometimes money costs too much.”
Mark Albion doesn't pretend to have all the answers, but his unique perspective can help you find yours. He guides you through a framework of four crucial questions and twelve principles to consider when making career decisions. Using tales of experience to caution and uplift, Albion helps you construct your personal, strategic "destiny plan."
An inspirational yet practical career guide, More Than Money encourages aspiring MBAs, current students, and graduates to give themselves permission to be who they really want to be and to find their path of service and fulfillment. As Albion says, in the end “we won't remember you for the size of your wallet as much as for the size of your heart.”
