Collaboration. Some people get it. Some don’t.
February 19, 2007
A few years ago I read an article in Entrepreneur magazine about a man who had networking down to an art and a science. It’s much like roasting – a full science OR a full art approach won’t cut it. It takes both. Anyway the interview addressed how he managed to foster and maintain so many relationships while developing new ones. Although it was never spelled out, I picked up that he was not afraid of collaboration. He made it a goal to help others be successful. It takes a lot of energy, passion and sometimes a very big heart to pull this off. From the day I met Bruno I was overwhelmed with his Bruno-ness. Those of you who know him are smiling this very second and you know exactly what I’m talking about. Those of you who don’t are missing out =). Below he tells the story of how he got shot and rushed to a hospital in a funeral wagon in Minas Gerais, Brasil. If you want to purchase some of his coffee visit BRAZILIAN COFFEE ESTATES. Currently their coffee can be picked from Costa Oro not to far from Bruno’s home in Beaverton, OR. Bruno this post is for you today. Happy Birthday Bruno!
