A true Northern Monkey – 3 Star Michelin Chef, Born Leeds, Yorkshire, England.
White worked relentlessly for 17 years to pursue his ambition, he ultimately found that in spite of his accomplishments, recognition and fame, his career did not provide him with adequate returns in his personal life. So in 1999, he retired and returned his Michelin stars. After a long stint he re-invented himself and once again donned cooking aprons. In January 2010, MPW opened a new restaurant called “Marco Pierre White’s the Swan Inn” in Aughton, which serves a selection of classic English pub foods.
Enjoy your rise to success (rather than waiting until you reach the top of your game). Very good article about MPW’s New York visit and some recommendations on places to eat.
Wonderful reminder to be humble and proud of your life.

Really enjoying this portrait from the Guardian today.
Professor Sir Harold Kroto on the day after his Nobel Prize was announced – he received the 1996 Nobel Prize for Chemistry along with Robert Curl and Richard Smalley for discovering fullerenes, spherical carbon molecules sometimes known as ‘Buckyballs’.
Certainly amazing origami designs which can viewed as reducing complex scientific discoveries in elegant paper folded shapes!
“Art and storytelling are the only bridges we have left in a world that is collapsing.”
This quote should resonate with adventure seekers prepared to manage risk and recovery:
You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.
New Big Cartel is the equivalent of a drag and drop shopping cart experience. Super simple and real easy to deploy. Looking forward to checking it out for audreylam.com
Big Cartel has made it easy for thousands of bands, record labels, clothing designers, artists, crafters, and independent businesses to make beautiful stores to sell their stuff online.
A metaphorical ginnie in the bottle. You need to have a goal, make a map, have a sense of urgency (don’t stop) and possess empowering emotions. Honestly, Tony’s telling you what you know already, the real nugget is understanding how to realign lost inspiration.
