Today, I honor our new friend and Founder of The Inspiration Project, Mrs. Barbara Mishkin. Barbara visted our joint Gotham meeting earlier this month and she inspires me, everyday. She's a natural Gothamite. Barbara shares: "A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it in the hallway. The professors then mixed all the balloons. The students were given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no ...

Today feels complicated. Close your eyes and think about 10 years ago. What do you see? Who bubbles up for you? Anything special that surfaces? Even 5 years ago seemed so much simpler. A cuppa frothy cappuccino from Small World in Princeton, sitting outside, taking in the morning air, whilst people bustled about. It won’t be long now before I see my friend Dana, drifting about Nassau Street. She was always deep in thought, contemplating the meaning and purpose of life. With...

St. Patrick was born in Britain—not Ireland—to wealthy parents near the end of the fourth century. He is believed to have died on March 17, around 460 A.D., thus the day we celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. Green beer, funny hats, bad sweaters, green rivers, leprechauns, whiskey, fights and possibly a visit to the local county jail for public disturbance is what Americans think of when the holiday approaches. Not really the real story behind the Saint, but certainly good for touris...

George Washington knew he needed to cross the Delaware during the Battle of Trenton. It wasn’t a matter of if, it was when. He picked his moment, in the middle of the night and crossed the Delaware. Have you ever been up against a difficult situation, where everything was working against your efforts? No matter how hard you try, the proverbial goal post moved further away? This time last year, we faced the onset of a global pandemic, a market sell off, uncertainty of food ...

Someone once told me that the best way to become good at relationships, is to be in them! Simple advice, but oh, so true. Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to go on a new adventure with a family that sought out guidance on inheritance. Most people feel an overwhelming urge to do something different, upon inheriting a great sum. The best advice I give is to practice “business as usual” with no major decisions in the first 12-18 months. Relationships are at the center of how ...

The author of 8 spirited children and 31 grand-spirited-children. She was 97 years young when she left this earth, but her legacy lives on. She was a quiet, kind, sly woman from the town of Reading, Pennsylvania. Fondly known as Pennsylvania Dutch. “S” cookies, Pecan Balls, Buckeyes, Pecan Pie, Lemon Bars, Cherry Bars and tasty dishes filled her kitchen and our bellies. A shark of a card player, a writer, poet, and a hell of a scrabble player. She could stitch, sew, hem, and...

Perhaps you've met Nelson Mishkin? Nelson and I met in 2004. He is one of those special people that was brought into my life at the right time, for something greater than I anticipated and has been in my life ever since. Nelson is a past Gotham Member, a true member of the tribe. He lives the motto of giving over receiving, and knows that what he gives, he gets back in multiples. I had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful wife, Barbara Mishkin through her Inspiration Project...

One of my very first, favorite and fabulous woman was Ms. Dolly Herself! An amazing down-to-earth, country star singer, who is a beautiful, smart and a talented female icon. WWDD? I know....not the first woman you’d think of when naming a personal favorite. I’ve enjoy how she embraced her independence and strength from a place of gorgeous beauty and kind southern demeanor. One of my first favorite movies was 9 to 5. Dolly made her debut as an administrative assistant, then ...

How are you defining success in 2021? My story begins in December of 2020. Picture a make-shift she-shed with all the beautiful trimmings. Mirrored desk, with large double monitors, complete with a fancy media light to give proper, Hollywood lighting to those Zoom and WebEx calls.This money manager has been holding many family fortunes in place, like a ballast in the throws of a horrific storm, tossed in the economic cesspool of a pandemic and political quagmire. With decis...

My son and his handsome siamese son skim are on a James Bond streak; watching every James Bond movie while he enjoys a classic gin martini three oloves up... Shaken, not stirred. It is carefully selected to reflect the man-vibes Bond wants his viewers to feel. This evening’s pick, shows our hero Mr. Bond looking up and out of the window-well of a concrete basement. The handsome Bond is wearing a well-tailored, pale blue suit, while the rays of sunshine pierce their way down a...
