For at least the past 10 years, numerous friends and acquaintances on social media have said to me, "Your life is crazy! You should write a book!" At one point when I was particularly frustrated with well-meaning friends trying to tell me how to live my life, the title, "Shut Up and Let Me Live!" was proposed. We will see how things unfold. This is a work in progress!
Most folks who are trying to establish a professional presence online would start by highlighting their professional accomplishments.
Not me. Why?
Frankly, the volume and breadth of my professional achievements is laughable. Oh, there have been a few honorable mentions for sure, but hardly enough to fill a CV, let alone impress you with my occupational prowess.
In fact, if there was a lifetime achievement award for The Very Worst Employee, I might finally have a chance at success!
I would be remiss to discuss my career history without first exploring my educational history as The Very Worst Student.
Yes, it's that bad. I have screwed up that many times. Yet somehow it all makes sense in my head.
Let's see if it makes sense to you.
