I have seen wicked men and fools, a great many of both; and I believe they both get paid in the end; but the fools first.

Welcome to Strictly Business
Leadership The Global Communications in Worldwide!

WOW. It's been QUITE A YEAR. Over here at strictly business our T-shirts are soaking wet from the constant torrent of sadness tears. We're thinking back to all the friends we've made, the taco bowls consumed, and our classmates whose dreams we had to step on in order to move up the corporate ladder. Let's all pause for a moment of remembrance of the good times – falling in love and smearing clay all over each other's bodies – as well as the bad – having to eat an entire live salmon in front our 1st grade class for Reading Partners. Friends, this was a special year and a special time. I'll leave you with words from UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around for a while, you could miss it."

Business Term of the Week: "Minimum Viable Presentation (MPV)"

The crappiest, crappiest job you can get away with doing on a final group presentation

"Considering that our final presentation is only 8% of our grade, and none of us have gotten more than 6 hours of sleep in the past week, I suggest we figure out our MVP and go from there."
