I spent my morning sitting in an office waiting to be called next. I came across this book with a stand-out title The Accidental Billionares: The Founding of Facebook. A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal. I continued to research author Ben Mezrich and soon realized why his book was at this office, he has knack for telling the story of too-smart-for-their-own-good players of the big boy’s money club. Here in the office of a woman who has become an entrepreneurial success with her cupcake making skills, I recognized the honest truth behind a book like The Accidental Billionares, and am completely looking forward to diving into each one of Ben Mezrich’s novels.
Ben Mezrich writes:
“It’s not that guys like me are generally attracted to Asian girls,” Eduardo commented, between sips of punch. “It’s that Asian girls are generally attracted to guys like me. And if I’m trying to optimize my chances of scoring with the hottest girl possible, I’ve got to stock my pond with the type of girls who are most likely to be interested.”
The infamous Facebook is depicted as a grand scheme created to attract women on campus, every business starts with one great idea.

I secretly admire when everyone uses their social media accounts to post quotes of famous people. It is a way of playing philosopher and being legitimate at the same time. A friend of mine posted an Anais Nin quote today, which happen to be my favorite quotes to come across.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.
I am writer and an avid reader. The art in reading lies in the ability to live similar experiences through multiple perspectives. Essentially, us readers lead more than one life…at the same time. Very witch-like of us, how fun.

In my quest for a new full-time job I have been searching online for interviewing tips and certainly putting them to practice on my friends. I have recruited almost half the world in helping me prepare for my upcoming interviews and found a fascinating piece of information in my email today. It’s called “The Most Important Interview Question of All Time.” It piqued my interest immediately…could this be the greatest secret ever told? Lou Adler shares the single most important interview question:
What single project or task would you consider the most significant accomplishment in your career so far?
