What are you going to do with your lucky lottery ticket? Each MBA is a privileged member of this planet. What are you going to do with that privilege? What contribution will you make? You want to make a difference, but are held back by debts, expectations about your future, and peer pressure that makes you want to be that 104-year old woman I asked, What’s the best thing about being 104? And responded: “No peer pressure.”

You feel stuck—pushed into career decisions that you might not otherwise make. Pushed to where what you think are your safest career decisions may actually be your riskiest.

We’ll go through four questions and twelve principles I have developed by listening to you at over 25 schools each year the past 20 years. These principles will help you create your personal “destiny” plan, your career map to money and meaning, to profit and purpose.

About Mark:

A six-time social entrepreneur and author, Mark Albion received his 15 minutes of fame as an HBS professor in the 1980s profiled on 60 Minutes as a top young business-school professor in the country, which earned him a hug from Ronald Reagan. He left Harvard in 1988 to develop with SVN colleagues a community for service-minded MBAs, which became Net Impact in 1993. He travelled to over 125 business schools on 5 continents, for which Business Week called him, facetiously he trusts, “the savior of business school souls,” which earned him a hug from Mother Teresa.

The past decade Mark has authored three books and a 3-CD series, Finding Work That Matters. In 2000 he wrote the New York Times Best Seller, Making a Life, Making a Living (www.makingalife.com). In 2006, he wrote SVN’s leadership book, True to Yourself: Leading a Values Based Business. Released October 1, foreword by Net Impact Executive Director Liz Cutler Maw, is More than Money: Questions Every MBA Needs to Answer. With Free Range Studios, he co-created a 3-minute animated movie, “The Good Life,” about a chance meeting between an MBA and a fisherman. As the MBA tries to teach the fisherman about business, the fisherman teaches him about life (www.more-than-money.org). Check out Ruben’s watercolor frames!
