"There Is a Hole in My Sidewalk"

Reminds me the spirit of Entrepreneurs ...

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters
By Portia Nelson

Chapter One
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost…I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter Two
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend that I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in this same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter Three
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep whole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in…it’s a habit…but,
My eyes are open
I know where I am
It is my fault.
I get out immediately,

Chapter Four
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter Five
I walk down another street.

And I did it ...! Recently accepted for the BABSON 2-Year MBA Program!

Another dream starts to be fulfilled through my acceptance to the FW OLIN GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS of BABSON COLLEGE!

The Financial Times released their 2011 Global MBA Rankings today and the Babson MBA program was ranked #1 in Entrepreneurship for the second consecutive year.  In addition, this #1 ranking marks the second consecutive annual media ranking cycle where the graduate school was ranked #1 in Entrepreneurship by all three major publications:  U.S. News & World Report (April, 2010), The Princeton Review (October, 2010), and the Financial Times (January, 2011).

Not that I (just) care about rankings, but they`re important to me when for the case of Entrepreneurship they measure things such as number of professors that ARE entrepreneurs/investors and number of alumni that are entrepreneurs, among others.

When I joined Endeavor back in 2007 I remembered having asked someone: Which one is the best B-school focused on Entrepreneurship? I do not remember who even answered but the answer of BABSON prompted. Since then I`ve been a follower of the school, and I kept the BABSON brochure in my bedside table for almost 4 years!!! Not that I have not looked after other B-school, yet everything comes into place for a reason and one comes back home ...

Can`t wait for BABSON to serve as my lab to really help me keep discovering what I am made of, to understand the mistakes I`ve already done in my entrepreneurial life and most important, to find an extra source of "fuel" to realize my real legacy in this world ...
