Three weeks and counting...

I recently completed a 4-week PMP exam prep course which earned me 35 contact hours. This weekend, I will finish my application and I hope to take the exam in late September under the new format.

What better way to spend part of the holiday weekend than studying.

Three years in the making

It’s been much too long since I updated my progress on this goal… for I am now an MBA graduate! :) Yes, that’s right. After 3+ years of PT study I completed my degree and can begin to enjoy a less stressful life.

The education was well worth the effort and tuition. I am smarter and more confident than I was before. I hope that this degree will open the door to new career opportunities.

Also, I’ve decided that at the age of 35, the MBA will very likely be my one and only graduate degree. I would like to now look forward to marrying the right woman and starting a family. :)

Two weeks (four class meetings) remain

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I am catching up on my readings and will try to leap ahead. Chapters 10 & 11 – complete. Need to circle back for Chapters 8 & 9. Then, yes, you guessed it, chapters 12 & 13. I’m enjoying the sense of accomplishment with each checkmark I can make in the syllabus.
