Quotable - There's no job application for your dream


"My biggest personal milestones - and consequently the things that have most furthered my career - are activities that I undertook on my own initiative. Organizations are extraordinarily risk-averse. Even Walt Disney had to pay for the drawings of his theme parks with his own money."

Often times I'm asked why there isn't an extensive listing of Business as Mission job descriptions, benefits and comparable salaries. While we're in the process of trying to define more "on ramps" for people to get involved I thought this quote says it all. What do you think?
