I’m in Newport, having driven out today to conduct the 12th Million Dollar Consulting® College for the next five days at the Castle Hill Inn. I had the top up and down three times on the way out, dodging rain showers. I arrived in heavy rain. But by the time I had a martini at the bar and my suite was ready, it was beautiful, and I had a cigar and cabernet on the lawn watching a hundred sailboats, a cruise ship, and assorted other watercraft (including what looked like a $10 million motor yacht). As I write this, the cruise ship is sailing out past my 270° view windows, on the same route that the America’s Cup Races were once run here.
I’ll eat at the bar tonight where the chef accommodates me with a very special cheeseburger, better than most steaks. This beats working.
