Not too long ago I stumbled across one of the awesomest websites I’ve see in lifestyle design. (Only awesomeness allowed here:)) So I contacted the author, Dan Andrews, repeatedly for about two weeks until I was able to get him on Skype. What an experience. Dan is my kind of guy. He stands for excellence, the best, and better and nothing else. I love it. (Details are below on the second semester of the Tropical MBA).
Listen to the interview below and you’ll understand what I mean.

Segment 4 (6:40) – I’m about the hustle
>Blogging is fine for some, but I want to get paid.
Segment 5 (8:53) – Me harassing Dan about teaching his stuff.

and leave me alone, okay?

>I worked my ass off for this
>(18:37) The work is ultimately more important than your strategic idea of how it’s going work out.
Segment 9 (19:50) – What has your been your most memorable experience out there?

Dan’s student from the previous semester, from Location 180, is shining. I’m a educational profession by trade and I swear by learning by application. If you qualify for this program I would tell you to go for it with all you’ve got, seriously. I want to go, but I have some work to do on myself before I qualify.
