Placewise Q&A

Being Flippant at the Workplace

Recently Placewise Media interviewed me for its blog. Not that the other past featured individuals were bad but I felt this required an increased level of humor; humor Albino Tatanka style.

What a handsome fella!

My favorite question was actually the one that elicited the most serious answer:

"If you knew then, what you know now, what piece of advice would you give yourself?"

My reply:

"If I could address my college self I'd say (1) Billy Idol is not a hair role-model and (2) a career is a marathon, not a sprint. Being awesome is more about the culmination of the little things you do day in and day out than it is the splashy, high-profile, occasional things people reward you for."

The entire interview is available on the Placewise Blog.
