Try looking for a program that offers co-operative education. You take an extra year to finish, but you earn as you learn and you'll graduate with experience, making it easier to get a job. That's how I got through school without debt.

I used to teach for a GMAT prep company, so I have a lot of experience seeing people apply to MBA programs. Honestly, it really does come down to your entire package. It also depends on what you are looking for. I know many people who went to lesser known schools but still went on to very successful...

I noticed there isn't much activity in this folder. How sad! I suspect many of us reach out to other members of our community. I run a blog on starting and running a consulting business. As part of this, I use a portion of proceeds to sponsor entrepreneurs in lesser developed countries - I recently ...

Wow, that sounds like an interesting idea! It would be fun to play, but I'd want the option to be male or female and have my own choice over the gender of my partner.

If you know that you want to work from home but you don't know what you want to do, it might help to start by doing a personal inventory. This is where you basically come up with a list of all your skills, interests, qualities and so on. Then you work through it and see what might actually help you ...

Hi there, I haven't posted in the forums for a bit - I usually stick to the main page comments. Anyway, I know we're allowed to post our projects here, so I thought I'd tell you about mine. I just launched my new business plan kit: Write Your Business Plan Now. You can check it out at http://www.con...

Here in Canada, it is pretty common for dads to take time off too. This shouldn't just be about your wife taking time off, unless there is some reason you think you would be unable to ever return to work. In Canada, it's becoming more common for dads to take even 4 months off.

Roomba makes me clean up my floor, which is a good thing. :)

OMG...I love my Roomba. I love it. I wax poetic about Roombie! I call it Roombie. I persuaded my BFF to get one. She calls hers Roombie and we never even discussed that before hand. Roombie rocks. I am a super frugal person, but I love Roombie!

I worked my way through my undergrad, graduated, worked for a few years, then worked my way through my MBA...except for taking out a small loan for the last semester. But I got a job part-way through the semester and paid it off before the semester ended. So I was only in debt for a month or two.

Here in Vancouver, the Olympics led to a bit of a gold rush with property values. We're all waiting to see if things crash in February. $1M for a fixer upper house is not particularly sustainable, so I think things have to come down. People are posting their condos for Olympic rentals, but I'm not s...

I make money from my blogs and ebooks. However, I also gain leads for my consulting services, workshops and speaking. You can make money online pretty much the same way you make it offline. These days, I'm not sure you need to make a distinction.

I know I feel best when I have good cash flow, an emergency savings fund and balloon payments on my mortgage, probably because I feel like debt is pressure.

It sounds more like your entrepreneur friends can see how to help you. Your "normal" friends haven't got the same background and, to them, being an entrepreneur AND shutting down probably sounds like the scariest thing they've ever heard of. Your entrepreneur friends know that many busines...
