    Do and Give More Than Is Expected of You

    By Jul 28,2016

    When I was 18 years old I spent three months working as a garbage man in Detroit.  It was one of the more interesting experiences of my life. I had taken the job out of necessity because I had the good fortune of being cut off from any spending money by my parents. Facing my first year of college in a few months, I wanted to make sure that I had money for my books and other expenses. When I started the work I threw myself into it with a great deal of

    Avoid Sophisticated and Saturated Markets

    By Jul 22,2016

    One of the biggest mistakes people make in their job searches is going after jobs in sophisticated markets.  A sophisticated and saturated market is one that’s populated by a lot of people like you—with your qualifications, background, and so forth. If you’re competing for a job in a sophisticated market, you’re going to be more harshly judged and more likely eliminated than if you’re looking in a less sophisticated market.  The most sophisticated markets will be the most concerned about things like: Where you went to school Whom...

    Are You a Value Creator or Value Extractor?

    By Jul 18,2016

    When I was in my third year of college, I applied to a special accelerated program at the University of Chicago Business School, which would have allowed me to graduate from business school and complete my undergraduate degree in a total of five years–instead of the six years this normally would have required. At the time I was a very good student and I had also been running an asphalt business for the previous several years. I had started the business from scratch and believed that I would have no issue whatsoever getting into this program,...

    Why You Need to Believe in Yourself

    By Jul 26,2016

    My first job out of law school was working for a federal judge in Northern Michigan. The position did not pay very well, but that did not matter to me at all. I decided I was going to “live it up!” I got the most expensive apartment I could find in the small town I was living in, told my girlfriend she did not need to work and leased a brand new BMW. I also purchased some nice suits, a Rolex watch for $5,000 (on a credit card), got a nice television and entertainment center and made various other purchases. I also bought about $5,000...
