Christopher Walken is Possibly the Only Advisor You Need

Ok, full disclosure. You DO actually need real-life Advisors who know who you are, and can help you in your journey…but, it’s really fun to read wacky celebrity advice and pretend that they’re your personal Yoda (and if you remember Yoda, you know he was a hilarious but weird and ineffective Advisor.) So, in the spirit of hilarity, levity, and possibly learning, we wanted to compile some amazing Christopher Walken thoughts and present it to you, with commentary (of course), as to why it’s great advice from your Advisor (or absolutely terrible. There’s really only two ways this can go in these cases…)

Advisor Breakdown: Gandalf

Hoo, boy. We may have bitten off more than we can chew with this one. Gandalf is a character written about (and created) by J.R.R. Tolkien many times and in many forms. We also know that there are many, many people who are, shall we say, a little…obsessed with the collective works of Tolkien. With that in mind what we’re about to say may be considered blasphemy to them: because there are so many iterations of Gandalf, we’re going to focus solely upon his mentorship of the fellowship of the ring in the 2001-2003 movie trilogy. We hope we’re not breaking your heart by doing so. If so, well…

What You Learned in High School Can Help You in the Modern Workplace

It’s a rare person who truly enjoys their time in high school, especially once they find out it’s nothing like what TV said it would be. Waking up early, having finals, the repeated amount of winter fire drills (not really a problem in Los Angeles, but some of us weren’t so lucky to grow up here and came from more northern climes…you think they let you stop by your locker to grab your coat when it’s 15 degrees outside and the fire alarm is ringing? Think again, my friend!)

How to Build the Right Team for Success

The hardest part about assembling this blog was coming up with the perfect pop culture reference point to base it around, and after much deliberation and back and forth (“a sports team is too obvious!” “Not everyone has seen Ocean’s 11” “Get off YouTube cat videos, you have a deadline!”) the perfect archetype finally revealed itself—assembling your team that will help you achieve your goals is like building a boyband—essential to success, because every member of your team plays an essential role in the overall harmony of the group. (Get it? Harmony?!)
