I first encountered Cal Fussman on The Tim Ferriss Show. As an avid listener and Tim Ferriss devotee (after all, he saved me life), Cal’s interview is still one of my all-time favorite podcasts*.
In his chat with Tim, Cal briefly talked about his wine experience for his column in Esquire Magazine. Exploring the show notes, I read Cocktails Before the Collapse, the article in which Cal writes about his time as Sommelier at Windows on the World.
That piece is cornerstone to my leaving the corporate 9-to-5 in order to chase this crazy wine dream. Some might be wondering, “A magazine article changed your life?”
