Visioning My Future…Barbara Jun

Visioning My Future…Barbara Jun

I was having a semi-serious conversation with one of my friends on how we envision ourselves in the future. My friend recently changed his major, which got us to this topic. As I mentioned before, one of the most important epiphanies I have had while participating in this apprenticeship was how important technology and efficiently […]

Combining Passions–Business and Food…Barbara Jun

Combining Passions–Business and Food…Barbara Jun

Being a college student, I still am not very sure about what I want to do in the future, but this weekend, after reading a lot of books and talking to couple people, I think I realized the direction I want to go. Even if I wish for my future to a certain way, I […]

Self-Motivation to Make a Difference…Barbara Jun

Self-Motivation to Make a Difference…Barbara Jun

In my opinion, one of the most important things about making a difference is self-motivation. I realized no matter how much you try, there is no way to force or make someone do something that they do not want to do. If you do, they will not be able to execute and perform to their […]

Writing Skill Updates…Brittany Marquez

Writing Skill Updates…Brittany Marquez

I have enhanced my writing skills a lot since being at iMADdu. With every week that comes, especially because I work remotely, all the work I do has to be written out in order to be evaluated.  Up to this point, there has been research, evaluations, blog posts, articles, rewriting my resume, creating my cover […]

Prepared vs. Practical…Yara El Mowafy

Prepared vs. Practical…Yara El Mowafy

A week has now gone by during which I’ve been a remote apprentice. The past few weeks I’ve had several transitioning meetings, several follow-up meetings, a conference call and many emails. With that and a full time job I’ve noticed that I’ve been burdening myself with carrying around a seven pounds laptop. When it comes […]

Defining Entrepreneurship…Brittany Marquez

Defining Entrepreneurship…Brittany Marquez

Entrepreneurship means that you are in business for yourself.  You are essentially responsible for all parts of an organization.  You are to be able to delegate different responsibilities to different people but at the end of the day, if something does or does not work, it is going to affect you much more than it […]

Executing Goals…Brittany Marquez

Executing Goals…Brittany Marquez

In order to execute your own goals I would suggest keeping an open mind. You never know how certain things that may not seem very useful can really help you out in the end. There are different ways that people try to get you to see different sides of yourself, your skills, and your strengths/weaknesses. […]

Promotional Lessons…Barbara Jun

Promotional Lessons…Barbara Jun

I never realized how expensive promotional goods were. It made me realize how hard it is for small organizations, especially NGOs or non-profits, to brand themselves in material ways. I’ve been looking up lanyard pricing and comparing difference manufacturers and getting quotes. However, they were a lot more than I had expected. I honestly thought […]

Being Entrepreneurial…Brittany Marquez

Being Entrepreneurial…Brittany Marquez

I learned to be entrepreneurial through my family.  My father, my mother, one of my brothers, as well as many of my aunts and uncles are all entrepreneurs.  I have seen how they are never really “off the clock” and that they have to deal with a lot more than some people who work in […]

Butterfly Effect from Charlotte…Barbara Jun

Butterfly Effect from Charlotte…Barbara Jun

I took a weekend trip to Charlotte, North Carolina. What they say about Southern hospitality is very true from what I saw. From the impression I got, people seem much friendlier and open to strangers than people in Philly or in New York. People are not necessary straight out rude or mean in other cities, […]
