1. If you’re going to blow money and time on education, be selective.
Marlie Hall received a journalism degree from Saint John’s University, one of the most prestigious Schools of Communication in the nation. Wanting a more solid background, she enrolled in an MBA program at Dowling College. The MBA has been recognized as one of the more reliable degrees, and as one of the few that’s viable through recessions, cultural shifts, and economic crisis.

2. Create something of your own.
The MBA she earned at Dowling College helped her develop the business strategies and acumen to create her own company Marlie Hall Enterprises, LLC. She later formed a non-profit organization Mission to Sassier to create awareness about health issues in Haiti.

Feeling and acting entitled is a sure-way to get your breakthroughs and blessings blocked. Following graduation, Marlie worked for two years as an intern, writing copy for the news staff at WLNY TV 55 in New York. Some people can’t imagine putting in two months at a corporation without being compensated, but Marlie knew this was the way to get into her dream career. She put in double of what Malcomlm Gladwell calls The 10,000 hours before News 12 The Bronx snatched her up for a lucrative position. After years of proving herself, she earned posts at The Food Network, NBC and now CBS.
