I am a CEO advisor & poet-blogger. I am author of 10 business books. Recently, I have released two new books: (1) WHOA! Are They Glad You're in Their Lives? June 12, 2012 and (2) The CEO in You July 9, 2012. The latter is a revised, expanded and redesigned edition of the book Your Inner CEO, the rights of which I bought back from the original publisher.
I came late to loving poetry. That was when I read a poem each day from a master as part of my daily meditation. There was also a foreshadow touch by a college English teacher who brought me face-to-face with Robert Frost. Then I read Rilke’s The Man Watching and that sealed the envelope. I sure hope it shows that I enjoy writing these lines. Truth is, I write for myself. Poetry helps me think differently, see upside down, invites me to play better in our world.
