Scaling Kilimanjaro

I am definitely an adventurous and outdoorsy kind of guy. I couldn’t stand the fact that entering the New England winter was going to make me a slave to the SFP-Aldrich-Spangler-SFP route for a long time. So I needed to go somewhere unusual that accomplished two objectives: climbing a mountain and exploring a new country….

A cold New England morning dawned at the Harvard Business School in 1963, when legendary marketing professor, the late Ted Levitt, sporting his distinctive, thick mustache and bushy, black eyebrows, while exhibiting his customary, theatrical teaching style, spotted his cold-call victim for the morning’s case about Marlin Shavers.

Perhaps it’s the crisp outdoor air but somehow this casual dining experience inevitably makes the lobster taste sweeter and the memories of fresh…

Yomping in New England

“Why am I doing this to myself?” This is the question that keeps on nagging me as I roll out of bed at 5:45am on a Saturday morning.
