An MBA’s Prayer for Her Future Self

Oh, Stephanie Horvath, you inspire me as if you were Tina Fey herself.
Tina Fey’s Bossypants is one of my favorite audio books of the year. It’s a fascinating tale of work and growing up as a woman in a man’s world. And, of course, the Mother’s Prayer for Her Child is a highlight. I actually read it out loud to my mom when she was visiting just last week.
Here’s my favorite bit…
"Make me brave enough to pursue my passion (after I pay off my student loans, of course) and not surrender to the corporate treadmill of carrots, sticks and golden handcuffs. Give me the strength to one day leave my cushy, regular paycheck to chase my dreams of entrepreneurship, start-ups, social enterprise and novel writing."
If this piece is any indicator, I believe your dreams are closer than you think. Best of luck to you!
