Making the Cover of Eller Progress Magazine

Recently, I received one of the greatest honors of my life: I was selected for the cover and feature article of the Fall 2010 edition of Eller Progress Magazine, a magazine produced by The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management.

The feature article details my life’s journey from growing up on a farm in Spring Hill, Tennessee, starting and growing three technology companies and then studying at one of the world’s top MBA and Entrepreneurship programs: The University of Arizona’s Eller MBA and McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship.

I hope you enjoy the article. Click here to read the article.

  • Can I simply just say what a relief to discover someone who really understands what they’re talking about on the internet. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.

  • I LOVE this game but I just got one question .. aren’t there any new characters to hire after level 5 … after 5, I suddenly stopped getting new hirelings .. and I want another cleric because the first one looks like shit .. I have a knight ( dark knight), Wizard (bromsworth?) the rogue (gustov) and cecile the ugly ass healer (which you can’t really do without, I’m doing the last few levels they are all level 23/22 still no new characters.. it keeps saying check back later

  • In dat geval is extern zoeken handiger. Velen vullen dit in door te netwerken of komen bijvoorbeeld in contact met collega’s bij trainingen. Ook prettig is intervisie met andere leidinggevenden waarbij je regelmatig bij elkaar komt en een probleem of vraag kan inbrengen. Hierbij steun je elkaar en profiteer je van elkaars deskundigheid (zie ook mijn blog over intervisie met een agenda en format voor het behandelen van een casus).

  • That’s not even 10 minutes well spent!
