Stick with passion…Christopher Pedersen

Stick with passion…Christopher Pedersen

If I had a mission statement for my life, it would be to stick with what I’m passionate about. This is true for everything in my life, whether it concerns work, relationships, and hobbies. Life is too short to do things that you’re not passionate about. It’s not only a waste of time for you, […]

Irony of an open mind…Christopher Pedersen

Irony of an open mind…Christopher Pedersen

I think that the single most important thing for new iMADdu apprentices to remember is to keep an open mind. iMADdu will challenge you in ways that you cannot begin to imagine. You’ll be challenged constantly, and forced to examine yourself, and your daily habits. Entrepreneurship is the most challenging form of work, since every […]

I can’t do something?…Christopher Pedersen

I can’t do something?…Christopher Pedersen

I almost hate saying it, but one of the biggest motivators I have in life to perform at my best is people telling me that I can’t do something. This has been true for me with work, sports, and my personal life, among other things. Too often people will tell you that something is not […]

Giving without any expectation…Christopher Pedersen

Giving without any expectation…Christopher Pedersen

Every day, I try to make a difference in someone else’s life.  Most of the time, I accomplish this by offering advice, and passing any relevant knowledge I can to my family and friends.

Always room for improvement…Christopher Pedersen

Always room for improvement…Christopher Pedersen

What have I learned about myself since working at iMADdu? There’s always room for improvement. Too often I’ve found that I don’t keep things in the proper perspective, and fail to notice the times when I need to improve certain aspects of my life. It’s always helpful to take a backseat, and look at yourself […]

I would’ve thought you were crazy…Christopher Pedersen

I would’ve thought you were crazy…Christopher Pedersen

My long-term goal has always been to do something interesting that challenges me. Early in my career, I settled for a job that I hated, only because everyone told me that I needed a steady job once I graduated from college. I remained at this job for over a year and a half, only because […]

Being Let Down by Internships…Christopher Pedersen

Being Let Down by Internships…Christopher Pedersen

I’ve had internships at so many different companies, and I can’t remember learning a thing from most of them. The majority of these internships were at large corporations where I had to go through a rigorous interview process, and demonstrate that I was ready to work hard in return for a valuable educational experience. If […]

Breaking into the Film Industry…Christopher Pedersen

Breaking into the Film Industry…Christopher Pedersen

iMADdu will be a great experience for anyone who is willing to put in the work. How do I know this? Because I was once lucky enough to have an incredible internship that was just like the apprenticeships that iMADdu promotes.

Thriving…Christopher Pedersen

Thriving…Christopher Pedersen

Apprentices seem to be a dying breed. It’s not a word that’s heard often in the workplace anymore. An apprentice? Most people associate the word with some type of blue-collar job. Internships are meant to apprenticeships, but most of the time they are anything but that. Since most interns work for no pay, employers often […]
