Sometimes you meet someone and it sticks with you. It leaves an impression that you can't shake...and candidly when you meet someone that cool you don't want to forget.
It happened to me five years ago at HRevolution in Atlanta. I had a chance to meet Victorio Milian. I had been watching Victorio's blogging work from afar; and as a new blogger at the time I was so impressed with what he was doing.
I still am.

But it was more than that with Victorio. At lunch I was lucky enough to sit with him...and listen. Yes, I'm a big talker, but it was all about listening and learning from him. His passion for his work, his enthusiasm to lead and contribute differently. And of course, his love of New York City.
A couple of years ago I tried to convince him to come to Florida and explore job options in the sunshine state. Gracious as always, he turned me down and told me he couldn't uproot the family he loves or ever leave "his" city.
Do you see what I mean? Victorio is simply that cool.
Take the time to get to know this year's #timsackettday honoree. You won't regret it...and you'll learn more than you ever expected.
