My career has taken in butcher's boy, silver service waiter, interactive training, the dawn of interactive multimedia and web, marketing, innovation and education.

One of the most common denominators and inspirational people at various points along the way has been global marketing, education and social change guru Seth Godin. 

Like many big brand and thinker fan boys, I've bought and devoured most of his books but none have such impact on my life as 'Your Turn' which I might not have even read had my car not broken down one New Year's Eve.

Read that story here and see how it brought every thing together for me and many others I was to connect with down the line because Seth generously sent me a couple of boxes of the book to share around.
