  • Day One of Latino Legacy Weekend - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    from Arizona where immigration is the big issue of the day I was on the Business and Finance panel which came next Ironically this session was lot less technical than some of the others despite being the finance section One former BCG consultant talked about how important it is to following your passion while a fellow Stanford grad that I met there talked about finance and public policy As for me I gave my pitch about why it s so important to share information not only with each other but also with the next generation behind us At the last minutes I decided to divert quite a bit from the presentation I prepared not only because my prepared one was a bit long but also because I wanted to talk more from my gut and discuss a topic that I m passionate about And in the end a few of the participants told me that they liked my talk so I m glad I decided to change things up We also had a panel on Politics and on Corporate America both of which went well The common theme between these two is that we need more Latino Leadership in these areas at the executive level the board level and high level political roles As part of that we talked about the low number of CEOs and about the prospects of a Latino president in America s future But we also discussed how that transition will not be easy and we talked about leadership strategies that we need to keep in mind as we navigate the business and political spheres In my view that s because public issues are inherently ambiguous Leaders must weigh tangible issues against intangible principles account for diverse views and beliefs in the community anticipate skepticism from just about everyone and balance all of that to eventually take a stand Leadership is less about command and control than it is about bringing people together and building consensus To do that leaders must not only understand the complex issues but they must also have a compelling message And in the end day one of the conference was filled with compelling messages and was inspiring And the night was also fun We had dinner at Star of Siam a Thai restaurant in Chicago and after that had a fun night out I look forward to day two of the conference Stay tuned Sunday May 30th 2010 Diversity Leadership TAGS Conference Diversity Leadership 3 Comments to Day One of Latino Legacy Weekend Cynthia Natalie Carrrasco May 30 2010 It was powerful to have so many thoughtful generous brilliantly provocative leaders assembled I m grateful you were a part and eager to maximize all that we ve learned Look forward to learning and working alongside you Cyn Jeremy C Wilson May 30 2010 Cynthia Natalie Carrrasco Cnythia thanks so much for reading and for your comment here on the site I can t agree more about the weekend I look forward

    Kaneisha Grayson founder of The Art of Applying http theartofapplying com Reader FEEDBACK on JEREMYCWILSON COM This is random but I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for maintaining your JD MBA blog over the past few years While researching joint programs I came across your blog and gained insight in Northwestern s JD MBA program further solidifying my intention to apply I m happy to say that I have been accepted and will be joining the JD MBA family this Fall Thanks again for being a part of my decision Jeremy you ve got a knack for information sharing and writing This is such an informative blog And its really timely given the relationship between the trends in the job market and trends in graduate school enrollment Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together Will definitely keep checking back for more gems and food for thought Happy 2010 How are you doing I hope well Now I KNOW you must be really busy with school so I will like to commend you and of course thank you for your dedication to your blog Its been a HUGE help to me and I am sure it is the same for many others I went on it today to catch up on some entries and I just read the one about attending Kellogg s BMA conference I found it very interesting because I myself had the same question a few weeks ago as I was making the decision as to whether or not to attend the conference The time and thought that you dedicate to every single entry on the blog is really appreciated I will definitely continue to be part of your audience Great post Loved your answer Like the new look of your blog And it s so comprehensive Well done Hope you re enjoying first year can you believe it s almost over All the best I am always impressed by the quality of your posts The thoughtfulness and insight you put into your answers to your readers are just phenomenal Great job Jeremy and I am very glad to have such helpful potential classmates like you Hey Jeremy I really enjoy your blog thanks for taking the time to update as you do I know you must be terribly busy with all the questions calls you ve been getting but I wanted to give a shot at getting your advice Hi my name is REMOVED from REMOVED I was introduced to your blog by a friend a few months back and since have been following your entries closely I think it s just awesome that you can maintain such a resourceful blog while on your 1st year at law school First I love the new site Last I looked at it it was still in development stages The posts are helpful and relevant I came across your http www jeremycwilson com blog which I have found quite informative and well written I am in the admissions process for JD MBA programs and Northwestern is of great interest I submitted my application to the Northwestern JD MBA program for round 2 and have an upcoming on campus interview in Evanston IL Thanks very much for your effort This is an excellent post I find it especially relevant at this point in my career where I have amassed a good and varied amount of experience in my field so I am able to help others but at the other end of the spectrum I am looking to go back to school soon and am not as knowledgeable about the process and need all the help I can get While there are certainly constraints with time and schedule amongst many other reasons why many are not apt to share information I think sometimes people fear that by helping others or sharing information they are somehow losing out or shortchanging themselves and it is that fear that sometimes makes folks hold back when they can indeed help I do appreciate this post though and admire your dedication to helping others even with your already full plate It certainly makes a difference over time so I am also very glad you had the chance to take the call Great post Jeremy your new blog looks really nice keep up the good job Congrats for your job offer and wish you every success in it The blog is super nice and informative Great blog Your posts helped me alot in my college transition Thank you for your information Jeremy you ve got a knack for information sharing and writing This is such an informative blog And its really timely given the relationship between the trends in the job market and trends in graduate school enrollment Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together Will definitely keep checking back for more gems and food for thought As one of your classmates and friends I m thankful for having you in my life Your post was very touching Happy Thanksgiving As an aside I ve loved reading up on your recent posts Anything themed around going against the status quo to impact people and communities appeals to me and fuels me Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge and more importantly inspire others Hi Jeremy What a great blog I really like the content it is easily consumable and sometimes it goes very well along with my morning cup of coffee Thanks for sharing greetings from Macedonia Hello Jeremy I have reading your blog since last December and you have been a tremendous source of motivation and advice for me I am currently going through the application process for the Kellogg JD MBA program Your help and advice are greatly appreciated Hello jeremycwilson i just discovered your blog Thank you for providing that invaluable wealth of information on the JD MBA program at Kellogg Subject New Blog Fan Hi Jeremy Hope all is well I wanted to say how happy I am to have found your blog I am an applicant to the Class of 2013 MLT MBAP program I had an interview with Name on Monday and in preparation I began googling and found your blog I still haven t read through each post but from the ones I read I have learned so much and been entertained at the same time While reading I found some similarities in our interests which has led me to take a closer view into NW s MBA JD program I have been working at Bank for the past three and half years my current role is in Bank Team and the cross over between legal and business happens on an almost daily basis I will continue reading this blog and hope to meet or speak with you one day I will keep you posted on the outcome of MLT s decision I have my fingers crossed because I know it will be an immensely beneficial program Keep up the good work Hi Jeremy I got the good news today I m in Thank you so much for

develop my essays Thanks once again Hope u had a great Thanksgiving Jeremy does an unparalleled job of directly addressing the most pressing concerns of business school students and applicants Jeremy along with his blog has been one of the best resources in helping me think through critical issues such as being waitlisted and taking financial aid into account when choosing an MBA program I wish that I had discovered Jeremy s blog much earlier because I would have been much better informed throughout the application process and I believe I would have achieved even stronger results in terms of my acceptances I encourage anyone who is even remotely considering an MBA to follow Jeremy s blog as it will surely give you much needed insight and it will serve as an extremely useful tool should you choose to apply Hi Jeremy Thank you so much for our conversation the other day It was super helpful After much debate I have decided that I m in love with Kellogg and I will be moving to Evanston this fall Needless to say my interactions with the community played a huge part and of course you were a big part of it Thank you so much for all your help I m planning to visit area the weekend of Date to look for housing and hopefully connect with other folks joining the class I was wondering if you would be around I would love to meet up and get your advice on how to make the most of my experience at Kellogg I m particularly interested in becoming a leader within Kellogg specific community at Northwestern so any connections tips around that would be appreciated Take care and I look forward to connecting soon Name Hello Jeremy My name is name and we met you at the event earlier in the week I want to personally thank you for the advice that you gave me on both the MLT process as well as the MBA admissions process I think those pieces of information will go a long way in helping me complete my essays during my attempt at going to business school Finally I know you said that you had two blog entries that you wanted me to read and I am eager to find out what they are because at this point I welcome informed advice Otherwise I think what you are doing with the education matters project as well as this website and you work with MLT is admirable Please keep it up you have no idea of the positive impact that it brings Thanks for all the advice Jeremy I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I was admitted to the JD MBA program at Northwestern I appreciate you taking time out of your schedule last August to speak with me Your advice and steps for moving forward were extremely helpful and I am very grateful for the assistance I hope to meet you in person sometime in the near future Take care Name 2013 Message Body Dear Jeremy My name is MC and I know that due to all the messages that you probably get daily you wont remember mine I contacted you at the end of last year from Rio de Janeiro Brazil I decided to contact you to express my gratitude for you blog It has really helped me to get a better insight of Northwestern University and the wonder of the business and law worlds I m originally from South America but I have lived in Chicago for the past years of my life I m currently finishing my undergraduate degree in Global Studies and Economics at University of Illinois I recently returned from a research fellowship I had in Brazil and Im now about to return to city after graduation I also wanted to say that I admire all the work that you have done in the non profit side because I can directly relate to it As a latino high school student in Chicago going to college has not been as easy task to achieve and people that decide to give something back to the community as you are doing deserve recognition Thank you so much in advance for taking your time to read this long message I really look forward to hear from you some time in the near future Best regards MC Thank you Jeremy for the Ask Jeremy segment I really appreciate your detail review of my resume The detail tips and advice were great and helped me see some errors I didn t see before as well as improve its format and language Your blog as provided me with great advice and insight of the MBA process and MLT It is great to be able to reach out to someone who s been in your shoes as a prospective student Thank you so much and I will continue to read your blog and get my friends to read as well Hashima C Jeremy thank you so much for your advice and guidance during my JD MBA application process Your level of detail on and commitment to your blog have been immensely helpful and speaks to your belief in giving back to those looking to follow your academic and professional footsteps Whether it has been at an MLT seminar or essay review you have been enthusiastic knowledgeable and inspirational Much appreciated Glen Hi Jeremy I m really grateful that Marquis connected us at the MLT seminar last March Ever since then you have been a constant encouragement throughout the MBA application process I think I asked you about everything GMAT prep recommendation letters essays importance of school visits joint degree programs wait lists interviews etc I even asked you about blogging Every single time you gave me candid valuable advice I could use which calmed my nerves and helped me become as competitive as possible I know giving so much help can be time consuming as recently friends have been seeking my advice about applying to MBA programs and other professional opportunities When I get tired I just direct them to your blog Now the process is finally over and I have been admitted to HBS It s like a dream come true and I cannot thank you enough for your support You should ve charged me Lol I look forward to being able to return your kindness and support in the future You re the best Michelle Hi Jeremy I am extremely thankful for your guidance and encouragement You really impersonate the soul of the MLT alumni I wish someone had told me about your blog earlier in the process My favorite segment is Ask Jeremy your video responses are great to watch It is truly outstanding how quick you reply to your emails you are so quick that I felt I was a VIP Not to mention the extended conversation we had on the phone You are exceedingly generous I feel further compromised to give back Thank you again Best Felipe I just wanted to take a second to say thank you thank you thank you Your blog has been absolutely invaluable to me during the application process I don t know of too many people that would actually take the time to answer specific questions and create videos for each But it s the wealth of information on your site and your personalized advice that make both you and your blog one of the best resources out there for people looking to apply to JD MBA programs Given that we have a lot of similar interests with respect to education journalism law and social enterprise your advice has resonated a lot stronger than others I enjoy reading about your upcoming education projects and have certainly bookmarked your website for future reference and food for thought As I m in the midst of applying already I have had a lot of younger family members friends who are interested in similar fields ask me for advice but it s always better to hear it from the horse s mouth directly so I ve happily passed on your blog to them and know they will find your advice just as useful Keep up your great work PC Jeremy I appreciate you posting information for all fellow bloggers and internet surfers to view Your blog has allowed me to become more informed on subjects that otherwise I would never have been exposed to Whether it has been through your wisdom advice or your blog you have been very helpful and I can truly call you a mentor Keep up the awesome work and I look forward to many more blog posts Thanks Gordon T I attended Kellogg with Jeremy but enlisted his help as the expert to help my sister with her MBA applications I always knew he was good at this but as someone who did spend thousands of dollars on an essay reviewing service I now know what I was missing Jeremy provides extremely personalized feedback at the tactical e g active vs passive voice and strategic MBA schools look for trait x and you haven t demonstrated it sufficiently through your essay resume His knowledge in the space is obvious from his insightful bench marking comments e g career path x or trait y is an extremely common applicant strategy whereas this variant would be a differentiator I wish I d had his help when writing my essays Maybe I ll loop him in when I job search next Mick Gupta I noticed Jeremy s blog two years ago as interest in attending business school grew for me But because of my shyness in connecting with others I had not formally approached Jeremy until about two months ago Now that I have learned to break out of my shell and realized the value of building a strong network Jeremy is someone you want to have in your network His valuable feedback whether it be on essays or career advice resembles that of a great college football coach leading his team to the national championship His career advice through

    thinks The power of the resistance has been clear throughout the entire 365 In my first class when I was afraid someone would notice I hadn t done yoga before Three months in became apparent to me when I pushed through classes to prove that I was athletic enough to get through anything A few months after that it was apparent when I wouldn t try poses because I didn t want others to see I couldn t do it perfectly yet So instead I d practice at home so nobody would see me fall And then the same thing happened with handstand I didn t try my first one until about 10 months in Even today it happens with Feathered Peacock My shoulders are naturally tight and so the pose still challenges me in ways that no other pose does so often times I won t try it in class And then again it happened on Day 366 when I decided to keep the streak going After an incredible practice on day 365 day 366 may have been the hardest day I ve had as a student I got tired and came to my knees 5 minutes into class I left class to get water and I had to take more than a few timeouts The irony is that I felt great before the class far better than the last few weeks Further the classes in the days before were far more challenging So why did I get tired this class It was mental I listened to the voice that told me I was tired even when I had more in me That told me I was finished after 365 so I didn t have to get through class today Sure we should all listen to our bodies in yoga but I was listening to my head The challenge and opportunity with yoga then is to quiet the resistance which I ve gotten a lot better at since Day 1 It s been a gift Patience Further to the point above through the yoga postures I am also learning to be more patient You have to Changes don t usually happen right away It takes time for change to settle in This is true for most things but especially when you practice yoga regularly In the beginning you see the physical changes rapidly and for me that was a great motivation to keep going But later the changes starting happening much slower and it started taking far more time and dedication Unlike many sports e g track basketball or baseball where you can measure results based on statistics and percentages your yoga practice is more fluid and harder to measure One day your body might feel great and you land a handstand but the next day you might not be as open and you might struggle with basic postures I ve had no choice but to be patient and trust the process To be patient and OK with where
