No one really does. There are a million ways to succeed in this business, and just as many definitions of success. Ive had my own twisting, ever-surprising journey in this businessas a theater actor, commercial actor, sketch actor, TV actor, film actor, company member, solo performer, voiceover artist, improviser, writer, producer, directorchanging hats and overlapping roles as the opportunities arose. It was, and continues to be, an unpredictable adventure, one that I could never have foreseen and would be useless to try to use as a how-to manual. What I can tell you, from my experiences, is how to survive as an actor. This is something any actor whos stuck around long enough has struggled with, and its the toughest part of being a working actor. Here is what Ive gleaned: You have to travel two separate paths: the Business Path and the Creative Path. And you must pursue both, simultaneously, never letting one take precedence over the other.

Paul.oes not intend to indicate any particular profession as a gift of God, but he makes use of a general expression to imply that the unequal dispensation of graces explains the diversity of objects offered for our choice like the diversity of virtues. Gregory Nazianzen, “Against Julian”, 1st discourse, n. 99; disc. 37, alias 31 on St. is why if you are considering religious life it is necessary to get to know particular communities. In the one life God gave you to live, you have one overriding purpose, to fulfil the will of God, because this is the key to your true destiny, eternal happiness. books Fr. And so on.

First, a strategic revisioning of the Company; second, better leveraging the Company’s capital base and fix cost through origination and portfolio growth; and third, improved operating efficiencies through scale and operational improvements.

First, with respect to the Company’s strategic repositioning, Marlin has historically operated primarily as a micro-ticket equipment lessor. I believe that this narrow approach under leverages the Marlin platform and does not take full advantage of the Company’s strengths. While this mindset maybe slowly changing, particularly with the early traction we’re seeing with our Funding Stream working capital loan product. believe that the continued expansion of Marlin into a broader provider of credit products and services to small and mid-size businesses will be an important and central component of this new vision; a process that we’re referring to as the transformation from Marlin 1.0 to Marlin 2.0. I think the opportunities for Marlin are particularly attractive today given the shifting commercial finance landscape with two of the most significant trends being the increasing regulatory pressure on big banks with the distraction from their customers that it is causing and the emerging disruptive force from Fintex. I believe that both of these trends are significant and enduring, and that Marlin is uniquely positioned to benefit from both of them.
