As noted in earlier blog posts, for more than 6 years Yuxi Pacific was my passion. Every day, weekend or weekday, I awoke full of energy with a determination to use the enterprise as a way to change the world, to achieve something truly spectacular.
For the last few months I have relaxed. I've traveled, slept-in, studied Italian, went dancing and, truth be told, drank a bit too much. But in those months I have came upon a project for which I am passionate. Two, in fact.
Th first is the city of Medellin, that beautiful city in the mountains where dreams com true. My love for the city is not easy to articulate, but it is derived from the people of the city who live in the blue-collar working neighborhoods in the barrios.
So the first project is a book, which I will title "The Real Medellin". It's the story of incredible transformation of the city, and a guide book to each barrio and its unique culture, gastronomy and night life. I intend to launch this as a Kickstarter campaign sometime in January.
The second project is related to fashion. Fashion is a passion of mine, always has been, and what I have stumbled upon I believe will fundamentally break the paradigm. It's revolutionary. We have started work and will operate in stealth mode until our launch, which I hope will be in. March 2014.
