Like everyone, I was shocked and saddened by the death of Anthony Bourdain.
He will be missed.
I have to confess that I am not a “foodie”.
But I have owned an upscale restaurant and know first-hand how tough the business can be.
Bourdain was an addict and freely admitted to being so. And as with so many, his recovery definitely had its moments of darkness and despair.
I will miss him.
One of my favorite business writers is Tren Griffen who has the ability to make even the most complex business models both interesting and understandable.
Sometime back, he wrote a piece on Bourdain which became one of my favorites and you can find it here along with other memories people shared about their friend Anthony.
