My Name is Samantha Creutzinger. I Am a Graduate of George Mason University with My MBA.
I grew up in a very poor background. I just knew that if I stayed where I was in Tennessee, I wasn’t going to grow any further. So I had to figure out how to make life better.
I moved up to the Washington DC area and met people who held jobs like I have now. I’ve networked around, and so why can’t I do that? And then I realized the only difference is I’m not making it happen. I knew the only way to get there was through going to college.
The MBA program I was in was a cohort. I was with most of these people the whole time in my MBA, we all worked really well together and helped each other out. Coming from my background, I tried to bring a different perspective into leadership. And I’ve been fortunate that my companies that I’ve worked for have recognized the drive that I have and the desire that I want to be good at what I do. And they promoted me along the way, and I’ve made it to the director level.
If I was giving someone advice, don’t kid yourself. If you want it, then you’re going go for it and you’re going get it. But motivation isn’t really what you need, it’s discipline. When you look back on it and you think, how did I do that?
“No one ever says, ‘I’m sad that I got my MBA,’ everyone says that they’re proud of themselves. It’s worth it in the long run.”
