Publisher Comments:

Can MBAs, often cast as risk-averse conflicted achievers caught in the MBA trap of ""I'll make money now and then...,"" find their true happiness and achieve their destiny in the midst of societal and peer pressures?

Absolutely--if you recognize that what you thought were your safest career choices actually may be your riskiest. How so? Your safest choices keep you on your destiny path; your riskiest ones take you away from it.

How do you know? ""More Than Money"" offers four questions and twelve principles to keep you on your path and tools to help you measure where you are and what you need to do to fulfill your destiny.

Book News Annotation:

Writing for MBA students and graduates, Albion outlines questions and principles to consider when making career decisions that will help them find life purpose in what they do, not just a paycheck. He discusses finding priorities and passions, finding the right place to make a contribution to the world, and future goals. There is no bibliography. Albion was a student and professor at Harvard U. before leaving to develop a community of service-minded MBAs. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

MBA students are chronically risk-averse. Their risk aversion prevents them from seeking and living a life of meaning and purpose. This book redefines the meaning of risk, and/or asks business students to look at risk in a new way. It shows students that the choices they think of as safe (e.g. lucrative jobs that fulfill no personal aspirations aside from financial gain, deferring service to others until retirement, etc.) are actually quite risky, since they typically lead us to sell our souls. A consciousness-raising book rather than a how-to, Albion helps MBA students give themselves permission to be who they really want to be. It helps readers develop the will to create a meaningful life.
