This week's feature story
profiles Dan Buettner, a local boy made good who went from Star Tribune delivery boy to appearing on Oprah
to discuss his New York Times best-selling book on longevity, The Blue Zones

--Buettner still stays true to his local roots--you're likely to meet him out and about if you spend any significant time in Minnesota, especially at Chino Latino. Although his Rolodex could stock a red carpet, he's remarkably charming no matter your station. Perhaps it's because he possesses the most important trait of our modern age: the ability to turn interesting ideas into revenue streams.
