Press & Articles

My writing includes my op-ed for the New York Times, Will Dropouts Save America?, an opinion piece for Time.com, The Glorious End of Higher Education’s Monopoly on Credibility, and my guest post on Tim Ferriss’s blog, 8 Steps to Getting What You Want… Without Formal Credentials.

I write a column on Forbes about entrepreneurialism, education, and career development.

My work has been covered by CNN (also on CNN here), Yahoo! FinanceUS News & World Report (Part 2 here), CNBCCoast to Coast, the National Review Online (and here), Investors Business Daily, Digital Trends, The BlazeInternational Business Times, ReasonBig Think (also herehere and here), the Laura Ingraham Show, the Los Angeles Review of  BooksHarvard Business Review online, The American Bar Association Journal, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and the American Express OPEN Forum.

I was quoted in the New York Times Sunday Styles piece “Saying No to College.” I have been referred to on TechCrunch as a “super-connector.”

I’ve been featured in various business and industry newsletters including Whiskey & Gunpowder, The Daily Reckoning with Bill Bonner (Bill Bonner is a hero of mine so this was an honor), and in the Lefsetz Letter.

My book also received the honor of being attacked stridently in Time by Vartan Gregorian, who was the president of Brown University while I was a student there, and by the $500,000/year  Macalaster College president Brian Rosenberg on HuffingtonPost. The Chronicle of Higher Education is apoplectic about my work. (Here, here and here.) As is Inside Higher Ed. You may just want to read the book they don’t want you to read!

My work has been covered widely in the blogosphere, including on Mixergy, Brazen Careerist, Unschooling NYCUnCollegeJaneFriedman.com, the Nate Green Experience, Nathaniel Whittemore, Psychology Today, PolicyMic, The Indie ChicksAOL On Relationships, and on the Learning Network blog of the New York Times.
