Here is the latest installment of Jeff’s Willis Report Clip of the Week – Jeff’s quick take on the IRS and tax reporting:
We’ve had a number of people request that we make my Willis Report appearances a little easier to find – so we’re starting Willis Report of the Week. We’ll post a short segment each week to this blog so you can get to see what he’s been talking about on Fox Business.
The reviews for “How to Get Fired!” keep coming in with the most recent coming from AOL. Geoff Roth, a former TV news manager and current Hofstra University journalism professor, reviewed Jeff’s newest book, which instantly skyrocketed to the first page of AOL Jobs Wednesday. As Geoff put it, “How to Get Fired!” is a…Details
Perhaps one of the greatest inventions of the twentieth century, right behind the flush toilet, is the telephone. And one of the greatest inventions designed to negate any usefulness the telephone might once have had in connecting you in any meaningful way to a business is the automated menu. I will assume that you have…Details
That’s right, my boorish partisan, keep your hands to yourself and don’t make extended eye contact. Today I bring to you everything you need to know about sexual harassment, ever. Many companies will provide mandatory sexual harassment seminars, some of which last for hours. This is patently absurd, since there is only one rule regarding…Details
Spring simply wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Boston, MA. I will be there April 29th to share How to Get Fired! with the students and faculty of Boston College. I love Boston – or rather, am amused by it. I’m amused by any city that was designed around the horse. What do I…Details
I will be perfectly honest. Gossip drives the workplace. Even if you don’t actively participate in it, it is all around you. It flows through you, like the Force. It keeps people moving- alert- waiting for the next tacky, scandalous shoe to drop. You might even be lazily drawn to the heady aroma of juicy…Details
I plan to bring the magic and message of How to Get Fired! to George Mason University in Fairfax, VA on April 28th. Yay! After failing to win the NCAA tournament this year, I imagine many despondent George Masonites will attend my lecture. And I shall not disappoint them. —– Jeff Havens is a professional…Details
On April 24th I will be in Bloomington, IL to present Uncrapify Your Life! to Progressive Impressions International. This is where I grew up, people, where all the magic began.Details
At some point in your middle-management career, you’ll be given the arduous task of keeping up with how your team is performing. I won’t sugar-coat it; this is one of the most distasteful, time-intensive tasks that upper management can rain down upon you. Piles of data have to be compiled. There’s a deadline. Plus, you…Details
The weather will be just right to visit Wisconsin Dells, WI on April 20th. I will be presenting Uncrapify Your Life! for the Wisconsin Bankers Association. If you have never been to the Dells, you absolutely have to go. Wisconsin Dells has the best water parks in the country, bar none, and also more fudge…Details
On April 19 I will be at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL promoting How to Get Fired!. I’ll be back in my home state, full of corn and soybeans and, you know, more corn and soybeans. I love corn, and I love soybeans. The soybean, incidentally, is one of the most amazing organisms on…Details
I will be performing How to Get Fired! at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA on April 14th. I love the name of this college. It alternately sounds loving and painful at the same time, and would look excellent on someone’s upper arm, perhaps surrounded by flames, but most definitely centered over a heart with a…Details
Just a little note here to let you know that I’ll be on TV in Dayton, Ohio on April 9th. I’m sure you’ve heard of Dayton, everyone, it’s the home of…well…all those people who live in Dayton. I’ve actually performed in Dayton before at Wiley’s Comedy Club. Ah, the memories. —– Jeff Havens is a…Details
I am just going to assume that most of you know what you get for free. Or used to get for free. Take a moment if you need to remind yourself what those things were. Most businesses are finding new and innovative ways to charge for things you once expected to have handed to you.…Details
Continuing with my tour de higher education, I will be at Indiana University-Kokomo, doing How to Get Fired! Oh, and the Indiana University-Kokomo mascot is the Cougars, which is super-awesome given that one of their biggest majors is nursing, it’s 70% female, and the average student is over 25. I simply cannot think of a place…Details
Welcome back, students! I will be starting the summer semester at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri today, April 6th. Culver-Stockton is the smallest college I have ever heard of, with an entire school population just under 600 people. I’d imagine that rush must be pretty easy for the Greeks on campus- “Hey, guess what! You’re…Details
