Today is Mikeâ€™s 40th Birthday (more about Chicago Mike) and his wife sent me a letter saying that she was throwing a virtual party and everyone was encouraged to call, email, etc. For some unholy reason Mike actually follows a lot of this crap I churn out. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s because of the wisdom and charm of my co-hosts, and perhaps fond memories of cranky people in Boston.
I met Mike when I came back to Boston around 1997 and joined the Boston Junior Chamber of Commerce. The Jaycees are a civic organization that develops leadership in 21-40 year old young professionals. Serving with Chairman Mike on the board of directors was an invaluable experience that I could not get anywhere else.
All the best to you old man and see you next time you are in Boston!
