Podcast 69: Bo Parfet, Scaling the Seven SummitsAfter Bo Parfet got his MBA from Michigan in 2000, he immediately went to work on Wall Street as an investment banker. The job left him little time to train for mountain climbing, an interest he had pursued for years. He learned just how ill-prepared he was as he scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak in Africa, in 2003. But rather than dissuade him, the climb changed him. Since then, he has scaled each of the seven summits--the tallest mountain on each continent. He shares his stories of climbing in his book "Die Trying" and in an interview here. Bo Parfet continues to climb and to lecture around the country about his experiences.
