Please sign the letter with all those letters after your name. You know, BSc JD MBA CPACC BADASS

Badasses are persistent and know their s**t

Badasses are creative problem solvers

Badasses say yes first, then figure out how to deliver

Even if I have no idea where I’m going or how to get there, I prefer to say yes, instead of no. Opportunity favours[sic] the bold.

Badasses practice what they preach

Badasses don’t mind being a salmon swimming upriver

Badasses analyze the negative comments, but don’t internalize them

Badasses take care of themselves so they can bring the same high intensity to their work, everyday

Badasses have a tribe
