6531: There Are Outliers Among Us.

Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell proposes that extraordinary people reach great heights through a combination of factors—talent, practice, opportunity, access, generation, background, family, culture, class and more.

While reading the book, MultiCultClassics couldn’t help but think of the Outliers among us.

For example, there’s Harry Webber. Boldly opinionated and passionate to the nth degree, Webber has been blazing trails for generations. And he’s still committed to Reinventing Advertising. It will be interesting to watch Webber leverage all his savvy and gifts in the endeavor.

In the meantime, check out this post from one of Webber’s blogs. Although it is technically a tribute to the late Levi Stubbs, the tale also demonstrates how Webber creates success.

The man is an undisputed Outlier.

I love this guy. Harry has been a true inspiration to me. It was nice to learn just a little bit more about him. Did I say a little bit, about a guy, I meant a piece of history! This dude is amazing. Plus he's still kicking ads!
