Young people born to rich families who don't go to college are 2.5 times more likely to end up in the richest quartile than young people born to poor families who do go college.

"But when I see management types become giddy over the prospect of “scaling” meaning and purpose and “intervening” in the lives of their employees to foster compassion and improve outcomes, I see whole sweeping vistas of fresh bullshit opening up."
Mindfulness mantras are the latest tool of corporate control.

You don't want your cable to be unbundled. You just want to pay less for it.

An old article, but worth revisiting.

Trusted Advisor, Executive Coach, and Persuasive Communicator
Introduction

I've helped hundreds of managers and executives in dozens of organizations develop meaningful leadership insights to achieve sustainable personal and organizational growth and change. My approach to leadership education is deeply personal, and often contrarian.

I'm a speaker and panelist who offers unconventional insights in the areas of leadership development, organizational and problem-solving culture, business and cultural trends, economic development, corporate responsibility and sustainability, and life/work balance. I've been engaged as a speaker by groups and companies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, GreenFiber, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, Green Mountain Power, Vermont Golf Course Superintendents Association, and the Vermont Community Development Association.

I am a vice president of a medium-sized, publicly traded company. I am an advisor to the company's chairman and chief executive officer on organizational and leadership development, human performance, brand strategy, public affairs, business and market trends, and corporate communications. I'm also an executive coach to over 200 mid- and upper-level managers and numerous work teams.

I'm adjunct instructor, and on the Board of Advisors at the University of Vermont's MBA program, which focuses on Sustainable Entrepreneurship and is designed to create a generation of leaders who will change the way businesses live, lead and profit.

I am currently a member of the board of directors of the Vermont Council on Rural Development and am the chairman of the Steering Committee for Vermont's Economic Development Strategy. I have served on the Vermont General Assembly Speaker’s Business Advisory Council, and am a former member of the board of directors of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. Prior to 1995, I was an Albany, N.Y.-based political and corporate communications consultant serving political candidates, state-level political parties, lobbyists, public affairs advocacy groups and corporate clients throughout the northeastern U.S. I have also held several staff positions in the New York State Legislature.

My wife, Renae, and I are the proud parents of five wonderful children. I am a graduate of the State University of New York at Albany. I am ripening slowly outside Rutland, Vermont, and write irregularly about leadership and other issues that amuse me at www.joefusco.com.

An alternate reality! A treat for the senses! These people know what they're doing when it comes to helping people escape stress and imbalanced lives. My wife and I have never been so relaxed, and so pampered in our entire lives. The resort is stunning in every detail, and the beach is one of the best I've ever seen. It was the perfect vacation.

Placed a "to-go" order, but wish I could have stayed. A great atmosphere staffed by smiley, friendly people. And the curry chicken sandwich was delicious. Can't wait to go back when I return to Burlington.

The atmosphere/decor is charmingly unsophisticated, the food - especially the sauce - was delicious, and the prices were modest. Looking forward to going back.
