MBA Application Advice and My Experience
The MBA Application process was more intense than I expected. Before I started, I had watched a few YouTube videos on MBA applications and spoke to the people in my life who previously earned this degree.

Last year I walked you through a slide show on my 2020 New Year's Resolutions. I started 2020 with optimism and drive to accomplish everything I listed. Then the world shut down and blew up my whole plan. Lesson learned. This year my resolutions are (hopefully) pandemic and apocalypse-proof.
