!MBA Musings (on Fund Raising)

by Megan M. on December 15, 2008 (Blog) |

I’ve been thinking a lot about this.

I don’t like “fund raising”. I don’t like asking for something without giving something—or more—in return. (As you might have gathered.)

Alternate MBA Manifestation: Asking For What I Want
