For some reason, I thought when I sent my application into the inaugural altMBA program it was later in May – turns out it was much, much earlier than that.

Wow time flies.

So here is how it did start for me…


And that was it, that was how it all started – I had no preconceptions what the course was, how it worked, what my grades would be (are there grades?  no there are not) and where it would take me.  Something new, something different, something to give you a swift kick.

From it I learned that I can do anything everywhere and need to keep pushing deeper – dipping my foot in the water, seeing if it is cold or not was not going to be enough.  It’s funny reading the above email today because my first prompt was called “Leapfrog the Ladder” – lol.

Even if you missed the next cycle, there will be more because it’s spawning into such a great program and if you don’t believe be, look at all these great people that I met and see what they are accomplishing…

Louise Karch – every day, I open my facebook to read her great posts and see what she is doing over in Australia (although she is native Canadian) and look forward to her book coming out (and every time it gives me that kick to finish mine).

Mike Savatovsky – Mike’s running an incredible program right now on giving back to when he was cured of Cancer.  The program is available here and definitely worth checking out.  It’s a very ambitious program and the quality is simply stellar.

Derek Martin – Man this guy delivers incredible videos that simply knock your socks off and it’s no surprise that he did a recent Ted talk .  Simply incredible (and great talk too)

I could probably keep running through people who now fill my Facebook with all of their great accomplishments… those from FLAX… and those from many other cycles… but maybe I’ll let you sign-up and experience it for yourself.

Than if you’re in my neck of the woods we could meet-up and who knows where things could go from there.
