About Me

I have written over 2000 articles and interviews in more than 200 media, primarily about the best practices of top leaders (I've interviewed Bill Gates, Meg Whitman, Larry Ellison, Richard Branson, Barbara Corcoran, Howard Schultz, Pat Gelsinger of Intel, and Pam Nicholson of Enterprise Rent-a-Car, among hundreds). I have managed or owned a dozen small businesses, so I bring a hands-on perspective on what differentiates the best from the mediocre (which is 95% of all enterprises). I have also written 200 travel articles for 50 media, specializing in destinations with unique cultural and historic aspects, and I have reviewed dozens of top 4-star and 5-star hotels in-depth.
