You Get What You Give

Apple season is coming! 🍎

And to harvest the fruit, it’s critical to put in the work.

Five years ago, I defined my core values at Columbia University in the City of New York in a session called “Reverse Engineering Your Career From Your Passion.

Today, my values remain the same – Candor, Curiosity, and Collaboration. But there is so much more to it.

I am starting five classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Sacred Heart University this week. I am teaching undergrads’ first class, graduates’ last class, and a few classes in between!

And in every class, we start with core values and then use the results to either connect with a passion/ purpose or disconnect from something that doesn’t align with a student’s values.

I’m very excited to see what my students come up with — it always exceeds my expectations!

Students, Are you ready to harvest your apples?

Then, let’s get to work.
