Hello incoming altMBA students! Congratulations on adding your name to the small but growing list of people who have decided to “leap” (as Seth likes to say) – to make the change you dream to make in your lives. Throughout the past month, as a member of the inaugural class of altMBA, I’ve felt extremely challenged at times, emotionally bare, getting the metaphorical crap kicked out of me by our latest prompt or challenge, and conflicted by what is comfortable and reliable (and boring and monotonous), and what is passionate and inspiring (and scary as sh*t). If I were Jack’s electric medulla oblongata, I would tell you that there are 3 real rules of altMBA, while on the altMBA site you will discover there are two core principles to the program. You will learn two are crucial: Make Good DecisionsMake Change Happen
Often we forget to frame what we want to really achieve in our innovation activity, instead we simply dive in and start innovating. I believe until we know what solutions we feel we need or the market wants, we will more often than not, end up disappointed in our innovation solutions. Simply generating ideas, for ideas sake, just does not cut it at all.

Green Tara and White Tara - Feminist Ideals in Buddhist Art Goddess Tara, a female Buddha and meditational deity, is arguably the most popular goddess in the Buddhist pantheon. She is considered to be the goddess of universal compassion who represents virtuous and enlightened activity. The word Tara itself is derived from the root 'tri' (to cross), hence the implied meaning:' the one who enables living beings to cross the Ocean of Existence and Suffering'. Her compassion for living beings, her desire to save them from suffering, is said to be even stronger than a mother's love for her children. The story of Tara's origin, according to the Tara Tantra, recounts that aeons ago she was born as a king's daughter. A spiritual and compassionate princess, she regularly gave offerings and prayers to the ordained monks and nuns.

Meaning of the Medicine Buddha Mantra 1. OM: we begin with Om, the under-current tone of the universe 2. What Airbnb, Uber, and Alibaba Have in Common When Facebook acquired the messaging service WhatsApp for $19 billion in the spring of 2014, the question on everyone’s mind was, does the service really merit a valuation of almost 20 times projected revenues? WhatApp’s valuation may be extreme, but huge gaps between revenues and valuation are increasingly common. Cloud-based sharing service Dropbox received venture capital funding at a valuation of $10 billion, or 40 times revenues. Airbnb.com raised funding at a valuation of $10 billion, which would make it worth nearly 20 times its revenues — and worth more than Hyatt Hotels or Wyndham Worldwide. Taxi-replacement service Uber is currently raising funding and is expected to see a valuation of $30 billion, estimated to be more than 15 times revenues. Most recently, Alibaba’s IPO raised funds at a value approximately 10 times revenues.
Buddhism For Non-Believers I’ve got that quarter-life crisis swag going on. I have yet to be very productive during my post-graduation time. I watch as my friends get bonuses at their jobs, read their tweets about how difficult grad school is, and be astonished that I don’t know one but multiple peers working for Teach For America.
