“If you're thinking about getting your MBA, do it. I think the most difficult part is to make the commitment and get the program started. Once you're in then the benefit is to nurture and build your team, these are going to be contacts that you're going to utilize through numerous jobs and numerous personal situations for the rest of your life so learn and understand your MBA students.

One thing that I loved about the MBA groups, they're all a-type, successful, outgoing people and we sat down as a group and decided let's do something extreme. Let's see the world, but not through the eyes of a tourist, so we planned this as a group and decided to do it in terms of the lowest amenities and to see the actual natives in their environment and not just do a service-level tour. What we came up with was a three-day Amazon trip coupled with a seven-day trip across the country to Rio de Janeiro. It was all planned by the students.”
