Today I had my induction into Beta Gamma Sigma honor’s society. When I started my MBA in August 2005 I knew I will do well but I did not know I will do so well. There have been many challenges on my way. On health front I had 4 surgeries; there were many times I had to take 2 Percocet (pain killers) to sit in class. Swati had to drive me to class and wait for 3.5 hours until the class was over. On career front I joined Samsys just before MBA started and then in a year I had an opportunity to work with Microsoft which I embraced. We bought 2 houses and 1 car in last 2 years. I am still trying to sell one of them. L Things have been happening at real fast pace. But I guess I love the fast pace of life.
I have to give a lot of credit of my success to Swati. She has always been very supportive in every aspect. Did I tell you she actually read few cases for me? JJ
As Swati says, I am more energetic at 9:30 PM after my class than at 5:30PM before my class. That is how I feel, I love the program and I am learning a lot. The best part is I enjoy it. J
