AWESOME GIVEAWAY: 2 Tickets to How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

New York's a business town, that we all know. But if you're a window washer, how do you rise to the top with the aid of a self-help book? It will be interesting, that's for sure. There's bound to be a little romance action in there as well if Harry...ahem...Daniel Radcliffe has anything to say about it. 



How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying brings previews February 26th at the Al Hirschfeld Theater (45th St. and 8th Ave.) Starring Radcliffe of Harry Potter Fame as J. Pierrepont Finch as well as the Emmy Award-winning John Larroquette as J.B. Biggely. The voice of Anderson Cooper will also make an appearance as the show's narrator. After seeing this show put on by my high school some years ago, I'm excited for this spunky and fun Broadway revival.

All my readers are in luck! I'm giving away a pair of tickets to see How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway! The tickets must be picked up at the box office the day of the show. There are 4 easy ways to win and each comment counts as an entry. Please include your email in any comments so I know how to contact you if you are the winner.

    My advice for climbing the ladder? Respect everyone. As a manager, you can't always be nice and you're not helping anyone if you are just trying to be friends with your staff.

    My advice on climbing the corporate ladder is to work hard...or make it look like you are working hard at all times in front of the most powerful of people. It's not as easy as it sounds, though. You've got to know where the important people will be and find out what they value most in employees. For more information, purchase the cornerstone how-to book How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

  43. Realized I forgot to put my email in my first comment...

    Another tip for success is to become a master at looking busy while doing nothing at all. No one likes a slacker, but if you can master the I'm-concentrating-on-something-extremely-important face while perusing StumbleUpon, you'll have it made.
