They say there’s a time and place for everything.
Mark Di Vincenzo is focused on the time — the best time — to fly, to see the Mona Lisa, to get a tattoo, to buy ketchup.
An awful lot of us just do everything on Saturday. Big mistake, he says. For buying, selling, traveling, working out, taking vitamins, making an offer on a house, seeing the dentist, getting married, filing for divorce — there’s a top time, he says, and he’s tracked it down.
This hour, On Point: "Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon." We’re talking about the time of our lives, with Mark Di Vincenzo.
Mark Di Vincenzo joins us from Hampton, Virginia. He's the author of "Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon: A Guide to the Best Time to Buy This, Do That, and Go There." He worked as a journalist for 24 years, and, in 1997, founded the Business Writers Group, a company that writes for corporate clients.
