Episode 6 – The Derek Wu Story Part 1 – The Marketing Revolution Podcast

Derek Wu on FacebookThis week on the Marketing Revolution Podcast I talk to Derek Wu.  I’ve had the pleasure of being friends with Derek for a while now and have worked with him several times.  Of everyone I know, no one knows more people than Derek Wu.  And not in a sleazy used car salesmen type way. Derek sincerely takes the time to get to know people every day. Read more

You can always re-take a class…

When I finish my degree the incoming URBSS asked me to speak to them about what to expect being on the society.  I didn’t know exactly what I was going to say when I agreed to it, but the final message I gave has stuck with me and I feel myself repeating it more and more to students.  That message?

You can always retake a class but you can never retake a party.

You’re probably thinking I was a party animal, who went to EVERY party Derek Wu hosted, that didn’t care about his grades and just had fun.  You’re right, but there is something peculiar about people who have a lot of fun.  They meet people, the interact a lot more, they learn how to talk to people, no, they learn how to engage people.  There’s no class that teaches how to communicate with other people, that one your left to learn on your own.

In twenty years time you’re not going to recall how AMAZING a particular study session was but you may, just maybe, look at some old Facebook pictures and chuckle to yourself about how much fun you had.

Yes life does have a destination but it’s the journey that makes it all worth it.
