I had the chance to visit the original Starbucks on Pike Place in Seattle. It looks nothing like the chain I have come to rely upon. Yet the formula is the same. My drip coffee is filled to the brim. I have to pour out coffee to make “room.” (Yes, I’m one of those – a little coffee in my cream, please.)
I attended Columbia Business School for one week in 1983. I learned all I needed to know.
Always have an escape plan.
Do you remember the pushmi-pullyu from the original Dr. Doolittle (1967) with Rex Harrison?
I’ve always wondered why it never became an icon. As the rarest animal on earth, shouldn’t the pushmi-pullyu have triggered the tipping point and gained icon status like Sulley in Monsters Inc., Elsa from Frozen, or Sponge Bob?
