    Really resonated with this one…especially with the ‘indentured servitude’ bit. 🙂

    Very disappointed with the language. I can throw around curse words with the best of any sailor. But I think there’s a time and a place.

    It’s hard for me to take someone serious when they talk passionately about running a pre-school in one breath and cuss about something else a few minutes later.

    Call me old fashioned or a prune but I can tell you from my own experience that foul language is a credibility killer.

    I guess we should ask ourselves, “If my children were in the room, would I say the same words?”. I would have thought someone with “Dad” as a major part of their platform would understand and easily be able to answer that question. I’ve been proven wrong.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for your knowledge sharing. I read your blog with love & passion.
    Here in my country Uganda Education system is completely bouring and its directed at Job seeking rather than Creation & Tarent.
    Jonathan Fields’ Career Renegade has given me courage to answer my dream of starting up a CAREER RENEGADE SCHOOL. What i need is your help and if possible your patternish.
    Thanks once again Jonathan Fields.
