Top 10 MIT Thoughts

I’m currently sitting on the campus of MIT in Boston on my second baseball trip of the year. Yesterday I went to see the Brewers beat the Red Sox amongst many other Brewers fans, and today I wasn’t able to get tickets to see the Brewers cream get lit up by the Red Sox. So, I decided to check out MIT. And, without further adieu, here are my Top 10 Thoughts as I’m sitting on the MIT campus: read more

Opening Day 2011!

As a reward for hitting 15 hours a week of work for the month of April, I rewarded myself and my accountability buddy Eric with a trip to opening day at Great American Ballpark where my hometown Milwaukee Brewers were taking on the Cincinnati Reds. The game was great, the Brewers started off with back to back home runs to start the season and ended with a nice clean save by closer John Axford a walk off 3 run home run by Ramon Hernandez in the bottom of the ninth of Brewers closer John Axford. šŸ™ read more

Introducing… Wild Ting Enterprises

I’m happy to unveil today about a weeks worth of work coming up with the equity for my umbrella company, Wild Ting Enterprises. It was actually a lot of fun because I got to put down exactly what I was thinking. The process of designing the logo was actually extremely helpful in coming up with the equity, so I’ll just talk about how the logo came about! read more

NAAAPing and other updates

I know previously I’ve talked about taking a lot of naps with the days I have off. But the title isn’t a typo. One of the things I wanted to do prior to leaving P&G was to establish a network outside of P&G. It’s hard, with P&G being such a large and well connected cult company. So, from the “there is life after P&G” category, I joined the local chapter of NAAAP, the National Association of Asian American Professionals (not to be confused with the NAACP, which I really think needs an updated name). It’s been a great way to meet people in different walks of life, and I got more than I bargained for when I went to a NAAAP leadership conference in beautiful and warm cold and rainy San Diego last week. It was great to represent the Cincinnati chapter nationally, and it was great to meet Asian-AmericanĀ Professionals from all over the country! read more

And on to the new job…

One of the best pieces of advice I got about leaving a job was to burn it to the ground because they took your red stapler be ready to go that instant if need be. If you feel compelled to give a notice, give them 2 weeks and be ready to go that minute. That obviously came true in my case, but the other shoe didn’t drop until a couple days later when I found out I wasn’t going to get paid up to my date of resignation. Luckily, I was in a position where I could start at OneCare earlier and I got to skip out of some boring meetings. In other words, if you know you’re going to be gone in like 2 months, don’t feel like you should be generous and let them know 2 months in advance. You might be gone that minute and have no pay for 2 months. read more
