  So much conversation I hear these days is about reinvention and recreation for your business. My own observation is that coming out on the other side of this pandemic (optimistically) is encouraging all sorts of change. I’ve heard talk about new business directions, closing city offices, expanding areas or markets through tools acquired over the last year. [As a footnote, I’ve also heard much talk about how to get rid of that COVID 15. That is the subject of a differe...

  I am seeing optimism. Optimism about a waning pandemic and the prospect of some normalcy in our future. I don’t have a crystal ball so I can’t tell you exactly when that normalcy arrives or frankly, exactly what it will look like. But, with the spring flowers this year I see people come out from under this pandemic. I know we’re not quite there yet.  I do think, though, about how each of us would gauge what we have learned from the past year. I know I’ve learned a lot abo...

  I’m not exactly sure why we’ve been going through old papers at my mom’s house lately. Maybe we are all missing my dad. It’s been just four years. I know I truly find comfort in memories. The most interesting thing, however, is that we are learning things about my dad that none of us knew – including my mom. We found an old resume. From it we learned details about his military service in Korea. We knew that he had served but didn’t know that he had received a number o...

  I recently presented at a program for lawyers all about Networking (thank you Carol Greenwald for the invitation). As we were preparing for the big day, Carol and I together with our co-presenter, Janet Falk, kicked around a big question – “what do you like most about networking?” Without surprise, we all had slightly different perspectives in answer to the question. For me, it was actually pretty simple.   Networking to me is about making friends – because from those...

You know that app in Facebook that brings up your photos from one year ago? Tonight, Facebook told me that one year ago we were busy enjoying each other’s company at a Casual Cocktails event on Long Island at Grand Luxe Café. The event had been organized by Rona Gura and Marilyn Genoa (great job Rona and Marilyn!). So many of our Gotham family -- the present, past and future -- came by to have a drink. It was warm, not in physical temperature, but in our connections and car...

  Has anyone else noticed the increasing appointment frenzy? And has anyone else noticed how important it is to understand how the system works? The current instructions are to ignore “No Appointments Available” on the NYS “Am I Eligible “ website. Just keep hitting refresh in as quick and furious a motion as you can muster – and then quickly grab whatever appointment comes up. Of course, you have to be lucky enough to grab a time along with that date, otherwise appointmen...

  I was having a conversation the other day with a colleague about our respective remote work spaces. For me, I have reclaimed my son’s room. He has the best desk in the house and a door I can close. With that space, it feels like work when I walk in and sit down. I think it is good for my focus to be actually going to work in a space that is dedicated to work. When I leave the “office” at the end of the day (of course, let’s talk another day about when that is), there ...

  At 11:59 every night, my phone starts singing the quietest of sleep songs. Then at midnight, it literally shuts down into sleep mode. The ringer on the phone is silenced, emails, texts and news no longer show up on the home screen, and the phone powers back to a subtle backlight. Of course, if I want to I can get to all of the news and info behind the quiet screen, but I have to try harder. That is until the alarm rings in the morning. I didn’t even know this blessed ...

  If you know me at all, you know that I am not a football fan. Sure, I enjoy the experience – mostly the food and the company. I also enjoy the commercials. This year felt as if fewer commercials grabbed me -- but there were a few.   Some of my favorites: Particularly given the current high rates of unemployment and so many people in the market for new jobs, I thought this ad hit just the right tone. Tide: The Jason Alexander hoodie was simply hilarious. ...

  Both my children learned a valuable lesson at a young age, at least I thought it was. As a woman in the business world, it was as important to me in a first impression as making sure your suit was pressed and shirt was clean. Approach a new person with your hand extended, a smile on your face, look them straight in the eyes and shake firmly – not too long, don’t linger. Don’t squeeze, just make the strength of your presence known. That is the lesson. Both of my now y...
