I was recently hired by Amazon as a Sr. Product Manager, but that likely wouldn't have happened if I didn't have College under my belt. I'd like to share my perspective on going to college and why, for me, I think it's still worth it in 2017 to go to College, despite the cost and investment in time.

I was able to leverage my business school degree after a failed entrepreneurial venture and land a six figure job, that I used to pivot into an amazing role at Amazon. Ultimately, I like to view College as an insurance policy that you can pull from your back pocket in the event you need to course correct your life.

For those of you who are subscribers, It's been a while since my last post due to my recent move to Amazon in Seattle. As you can see, I've taken a different direction with the style of my videos, and I plan to post more regularly, now that things have settled down.
