Pretty cool lunches

So, I have had some pretty cool lunches/coffees/dinners in my time. I love networking and connecting and it's sort of one of my passtions in life. I love relationships and picking people's brains and I invest a lot of time doing it. One of my coolest lunches ever was with Joe Dumars, yeah, the President of the Detroit Pistons. Every time I have dinner with Marko, it's always a great time, last time he bought for Tracie and I. The last NYWC I met & had coffee some really cool people, people like, Mike King, Steve Argue. Sean Meade, Kurt J., Vince B, Jim Burns and your mom. Anyways, my friends will call me a tool because I did some major name dropping here.

But, probably the coolest person I have had lunch with is YOUR MOM. Man, it never gets old, I love the your mom jokes.

Anyways, today I am having lunch with Mark Bartlett, the CFO of Blue Cross Blue Shield. He is a follower of Christ, and a non profit expert and for some reason he agreed to meet with me. So, I am can't wait.

I do have to say that the absolute funnest person to have lunch with is my wonderful wife. I love when we can sneak away and just her and I get to go to lunch.
