I’ve lived and worked in disparate parts of the U.S. and abroad. There’s a contrast between the world I’ve experienced and the more culturally homogeneous one of the business blogosphere. I’m particularly surprised when such blogs are American. Diversity isn’t ornamental but a fundamental of meaningful business content. It informs all analytics. So I write on marketing astute rappers who once sold drugs, as readily as on Ivy League professors who sell Honest Tea.
Enterprise is global. It’s a personal fascination. I think the best ideas on it come from broad jagged places vs. tidy narrow ones. Thank you for shaping my story.
