Welcome New York Times Readers

In today’s New York Times small business section our friend Marci Alboher writes about how we can all learn from anyone of any age. Ramit gets a lot of play, and I pop up in the end:

I first talked to Mr. Casnocha, an author and entrepreneur who started his first company at 14, when he showed an interest in reviewing my book (which I had sent to him because I admired his blog). After reading the book twice, Mr. Casnocha set up an interview with me to challenge me on the book’s ideas. He had an earnestness and commitment I rarely saw in experienced journalists, and I doubt any of them read my book twice. After he posted the review, we stayed in touch. He is one of the few people I called for advice when The Times asked me to start blogging. After awhile, I forgot that he was 18; he just felt like a trusted colleague.

Thanks Marci!

    What a nice compliment! So, Mr. Casnocha, what is the source of your earnestness? It’s certainly refreshing.
