Back to Life and Hard Lessons Learned

4 Oct

In the early 90’s when I was a college student, Arsenio Hall was part of my daily routine. I went to classes at St. John’s University in Jamaica (Queens, NY), went to work part-time at a prominent law firm based in Midtown Manhattan, then came home and made sure to watch The Arsenio Hall Show each night before going to sleep. His show ended rather abruptly without a clear reason as to why. Arsenio is back and after I saw the below interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, I became an even bigger fan than I was before.

"Celebrity Apprentice" Live Finale

Listen to the pearls of wisdom Arsenio shares in this interview and be inspired.

I like what he said about adversity: “You learn a lot about the people around you.”

Truer words have not been spoken.

Let me know your thoughts on this video. Thanks.

It is usually a horrible boss, a jealous peer or some other workplace bully that is trying to cover their tracks. I’ve worked in Corporate America for more than 25 years now and I have seen a lot. The good, the bad, the ugly and the stupid.

I was inspired by one of my favorite authors, Robert Greene when I wrote this eBook. He wrote The 48 Laws of Power and The 33 Strategies of War. I was tweeting tips for corporate survival under the hash tag #loveyourenemies and after I counted them all I realized that there were 52. That was cool because as a martial artist, there is an urban combat system called “52 Blocks” and there are 52 cards in a deck of cards. If you’re looking to make an impact in Corporate America as an intrapreneur, you really need to know how to block (i.e., defend yourself) and have these cards up your sleeve.

This eBook is a free download. The information shared here is so important I didn’t want price to be a barrier from you getting a copy. Please read this eBook. If is full of proven strategies and introduces various resources that you can use to protect yourself any any corporate shenanigans that may come your way. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
