Jim Koch from Boston Beer Company Commencement Speech

As my friends know, I recently graduated with my Master's degree from Bentley.  Hip Hip Hooray for me, right?  Well, this year's graduate ceremony had Jim Koch from the Boston Beer Company as the commencement speaker. 

As speeches go, this was probably one of the best motivational speeches I have heard (throw your Tom Peters books in the trash kind of speech).  The speech can be found here if you want to read what wisdom is imparted to graduates students from one of the greatest brewmeisters.

In short, I think I agree with Jim; I'm passing on the money to pursue happiness in hopes that it will be my booby prize!
