mbaMission Senior Consultant Akiba Smith-Francis Published in Forbes

At mbaMission, we take pride in the elite quality of our consultants, all of whom are published authors and MBAs. Senior Consultant Akiba Smith-Francis, for one, has three degrees from Harvard (Harvard College, the Kennedy School of Government and Harvard Business School), but she is more than just an author, she is a rebel writer. Akiba has been challenging MBAs to “Step Off the Path”—to dare to graduate from top business schools and not go into “traditional paths.” Well, apparently we are not the only ones who like that message. Forbes does, too. This week, Forbes published a recent article by Akiba on a situation she calls employment purgatory. Take a look, and ask yourself one key question: Are you already living your worst-case scenario?
