So what did we learn? No matter how shady and sneaky you think you're being, there's always somebody more subtle than you are, so don't try that passive-aggressive "if you say so" shit, because even if nobody calls you out, four out of ten people know exactly what you're doing, and it will bite you in the ass. Don't tout your credentials on a national television show if the fact that you totally failed out due to cheating is widely available on the internet. Remember, rumors are just as good as truth, especially when you've already sacrificed your cred just by being on this show. Um, you can't assume somebody is fantastic just because they like Pretty Woman, which I was surprised to learn. Don't say you're an event planner if you're not. Brownie luncheons don't count. Basically, it comes down to this: show flexibility, because people's demands on you are going to be constantly changing, and if you rely on just one thing, even something great like where you went to school, or the girl that took you to the hospital, it's going to burn you. Also, show flexibility by getting the hell away from people that everybody hates: "everybody" is generally pretty smart. ["One word on that: Rupert." -- Sars] Don't be repetitive, it makes you seem unoriginal, and that's not inspiring. Just because it's charity doesn't mean you don't earn inspiration points and come off looking as sexy as a man with a puppy. Only scream at your boss if you're absolutely sure they're going to secretly eat it up, because if you miscalculate a risk that big, nobody's going to feel sorry for you, Melissa. And remember: good leadership is 80\% inspiration, and what that means in a business context is: make people think you're more awesome than they are, and chances are, you will be.
