Episode 177 - The Value of the BS Credential show art Episode 177 - The Value of the BS Credential

The Peluso Presents Podcast

Inspired by a surprising moment, today's show is all about the value offered by that advanced degree, both from a traditional institution and by a for-profit diploma mill. It asks the question: Is that 100K Masters and PhD really worth it even if it comes from a place that hands them out as long as you can pay the bill?

The Peluso Presents Podcast

Inspired by a song I started to think about the good old days.  Specifically, I wondered what makes 'the good old days' good?  Why do we pine for them and what could you do to make them happen again?

The Peluso Presents Podcast

Sometimes there is risk in where we want to go invest our time and money.  The risk is in what we will get as a return on that time and money investment.  Sometimes, we call it risk, but it's not really, it's a near guarantee of a return.  Even so, you'll still have to pay the price in the form of the investment.  The big question is: Are you willing to pay the price?

The Peluso Presents Podcast

Sometimes you'll put in months and years, and work your way up.  Then something happens, a private equity buyout, a market change, or just a new manager. Then the unexpected separation from the company means you have to go somewhere and start from the ground floor.

In life we can have a short term outlook, or work towards the short term goal.  Sometimes in life we are looking at the Horizon, we are thinking not about tomorrow, but where we want to be years down the road. We can have both these short and long term outlooks in many areas of work and life!  This show is part 1 of 2 where we look at the more work related aspects of short term verses long term commitments.

Episode 169 - Vacation Productivity and Planning Destroyers show art Episode 169 - Vacation Productivity and Planning Destroyers

The Peluso Presents Podcast

For the type A personality (like me), a vacation isn't a way to rest, relax and unwind.  It's a great way to get away from the normal demands of life so you can get some work done you've been putting off.  Unfortunately, friends, family, and anyone else you vacation with usually has other ideas.

Episode 168 - The Women’s Empowerment Movements Have Completely Failed (Shoot Me Now) show art Episode 168 - The Women’s Empowerment Movements Have Completely Failed (Shoot Me Now)

The Peluso Presents Podcast

Clickbait title aside, the commentary in this episode is valuable to really assess the impact of the millions of woman hours that have been put in to empower generations of females.  Listen to four stories of four supposedly empowered women, who, when all was said and done, still looked to be rescued by their very own prince charming.  Is this normal?  Is all hope lost for the majority of women to become strong and independent?  Did I just happen across four outliers?  Listen an decide for yourself!
