"Sleep Is Overrated!"
Charlie (MBA '67) - 12/21/2011
Charlie was in Bloomington meeting with the Chair of the MBA Program, Phil Powell. Charlie said he needed an intern who understood social media, for his start-up GreenSmart. Phil said “I know just the guy!” and called Ben at 8 a.m., and said he had to be there in an hour for an interview to meet Charlie while he was still in Bloomington. Ben had a delightful chat with Charlie – talking about his experience in social media and what he could do for a company like his. He was offered and accepted the internship. Months later, Ben said he was taking a weekend break and looking over a sunset at Lake Tahoe and was thanking Charlie over and over for such a great opportunity.
