TESTIMONIALS:
“Mantracking is entertaining and educational, and surprisingly hard to put down. For the beginner tracker it’s a great learning tool and for those more skilled it acts as a solid reminder. I would definitely recommend it to outdoorsmen, trackers, SAR groups, law enforcement, and the military as reliable reference material.” ~ Guy Kerr, 25 year veteran of the Calgary Police, international SAR instructor and contributing author of several SAR Manuals

“The authors highlight the impact we have on our environment, even when we’re doing our best to have none… I definitely learned a lot… I’m now tracking my kids!” ~ Michael McKay, CEO Scouts Canada

“Mantracking makes me want to get in the bush right now! … I’m seeing things with a new set of eyes and noticing more than ever before. Awesome book!” ~ Brian, Hunter/Outdoor Enthusiast

Forks In the Road : Adventures in Food Entrepreneurship with Enrico Ianni-Palarchio, the Man Who Never Quit


Forks in the Road: Adventures in Food Entrepreneurship with Enrico Ianni-Palarchio, the Man Who Never Quit by [Nadine Robinson]

Mix two countries, one war, ten parts hard work, a couple of mentors, a pinch of luck, a dash of ingenuity, a pound of persistence, and a man who wouldn’t quit; and you get a delicious story spanning six decades of entrepreneurial endeavours. Enrico Ianni-Palarchio offers up sage guidance in entrepreneurship through tales of his colourful, tragic, and triumphant life in Southern Italy and Northern Ontario. His stories are flavoured with Italian proverbs, and his own sayings; teaching entrepreneurs to believe in themselves, find opportunities, overcome adversity, plan effectively, and market creatively. The book also shows you how to honour customers and employees, smile at problems, and handle all of the forks in the road. Whether you are in the food industry or not, this book is a recipe for laughing, for learning to be an entrepreneur, and for living a good life. Rico, has always done it his way, like Richard Branson, though he has been a bit quieter about his success, that is, until now. While also in the food business, unlike Gordon Ramsay, Rico has never cursed a day in his life. Taking from another great Italian, Leonardo da Vinci, who said: “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things,” Rico “happened” to a lot of things. In 1973, Rico had four different businesses operating at once. In 1981, he had six businesses operating successfully. At his peak, he was employing over 200 people. While he sold or divested some of his businesses, his influence is still felt across the community, through people he mentored having opened their own businesses and with the family members now running his operations including Paesano’s Butchery and Food Market, Rico’s / Good Old Dad Foods, and Rico’s Catering. Ashton Kutcher says: “The life we see around us was created by people no smarter than us. Build your life, don’t live one.” This book allows you to take inspiration from Rico, towards doing just that. You simply need some tenacity and elbow grease to be like the man who never quit.
