Monday, August 20th, 2012

For more than 30 years, I have been circumnavigating the globe visiting 140 countries , experiencing different cultures, and making new friends. I wish this outstanding travel book was in my possession from the beginning! Most of its pages would have probably fallen out by now due to over use.

Friday, March 16th, 2012

When traveling as much as I do, it is a rare day that one can find a touch of home so far away on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop, in the quaint village of Olowalu, was the perfect re-fueling station after a long day of meetings and interviews. Chef Sheldon [...]

The Zappos Experience review

Monday, March 5th, 2012

The Zappos Experience states up front that it will inspire, engage and wow! That seems quite a lot to promise for anybody or any company. How do they accomplish it? They have to “own” the company defined as taking full and complete responsibility for everything. This includes the people, the products, the values…everything! Then they [...]

Alas, my conscience has prevailed and I cannot keep [...]
