Date: March, 31, 2011 To: Mark Allen From: Dan Croghan Subject: Recommendation of Speakers Jason Fried: Why work doesn’t happen at work Jason Fried is a co-founder of a company and an author.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
