HI. I like people, including you.

I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to drop me a line. Coffee chat? Admissions consulting?  Speaking invitation? Investment?  Excited to hear.

Best career advice ever written--from a serial founder, billionaire, and SCOTUS clerk reject

Evan Baehr

This describes Americans today: instead of particular goals, we chase a neverending proliferation of options. In middle school we’re encouraged to start hoarding extracurricular activities. In high school ambitious students compete harder to appear omnicompetent. By the time a student gets to college, he’s spent a decade curating a bewilderingly diverse resume to prepare for a completely unknowable future. Come what may, he’s ready—for nothing in particular.

A definite view, by contrast, favors firm convictions. Instead of pursuing many-sided mediocrity and calling it ‘well roundedness,’ a definite person determines the one best thing to do and does it. Instead of working tirelessly to make herself indistinguishable, she strives to be great at something substantive—to be a monopoly of one.
