A year ago, Fortune Magazine published my reflections on my rise to the corner office, my life as a CEO and how I coped with the years that followed my exit from the corporate throne. In the sub-head to In the CEO Afterlife, the publisher described my tale this way: Former CEO John Bell gives his take on life after ditching the corner office for good and the search for fulfillment beyond business success. For those who may be interested, my days in the CEO afterlife are more fullfiling than ever. I can attribute some of that to joining the social network and sharing my experiences on leadership and marketing with anyone who cared to listen. Frankly, I am amazed at how my fading memory has unearthed so many vignettes that I thought were buried forever.
