is a transition, from modelling to singing, but for me it's a natural progression.

to write an album and now sing about it.

who we are. So a career transition of any sort is one of the most unsettling experiences
you can face in your life.
Clitheroe - Jobs
I was always acting primarily with shareholder interests in mind. It's also
true I've always had a fairly moralistic attitude to business, and would not do
anything that I considered improper. As a consequence, I have occasionally pursued
issues during my career that other people might have avoided.
Corrigan - Management

and spent twenty-odd years in it. But the thought of spending the second half

Remarks such as great Australian, larger than life
are sometimes used where they are not appropriate. But in the case of Kerry
Packer both of those descriptions are entirely appropriate. He was a great
Australian, he was a larger than life character and in so many ways he left his
mark on the Australian community over a very long career in business, particularly
in the media and also that other great passion of his, Australian sport
Howard - Media

As I look back now on my coaching career,
I think of my family, I think of the days
that we spent together. I say this to coaches
everywhere: If you ever have a chance to
take your kids with you, take them. Don't
miss that opportunity. Because when it's
all over and done with, when you look back,
those are going to be your fondest memories.
Madden - Jobs
Obstacles are necessary for success because
in selling, as in all careers of importance,
victory comes only after many struggles
and countless defeats.
Mandino - Obstacles
In the four decades of philanthropy that
have paralleled my business career, Ive
found that the same principles apply whether
youre providing access to capital
to grow a business, creating a new paradigm
for medical research, or pioneering innovative
approaches to education: Empower the most
talented people in each field and encourage
them to pursue their passions.
Milken - Philanthropy
It is extremely unlikely that anyone coming
out of school with a technical degree will

students have to look forward to the excitement
of probably having three or four careers.
Moore - Learning

understand the romance of business.. the allure of being the biggest fish in the
pond and the juice you get from beating out your competitors.

else around. So I wasn't driven to become an actor.. it just seemed to be the
thing that I managed to do best.
Newman - Career
We want passion for our business.. workers who can interpret and execute our
mission, who want to build a career, not just take a temporary job.
Schultz - Employee

career. It's a little thing called "fear
Stewart - Career
I wish to suggest that a man may be very
industrious, and yet not spend his time
well. There is no more fatal blunderer than
he who consumes the greater part of his
life getting his living. All great enterprises
are self-supporting. The poet, for instance,
must sustain his body by his poetry, as
a steam planing-mill feeds its boilers with
the shavings it makes. You must get your
living by loving.
David Thoreau - Life
