I sit in the airport lounge wrapped in swaths of blue cotton fabric. The ceiling has giant symbols that look like modern hindi letters but because of their blown up and distorted size, they have no message, just decoration. I left the United States just ten days ago and just six days following the electoral … Continue reading Perspective
Happy SundayFunday! I just got back from a whirlwind trip to India and received a beautiful welcome home from the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute (EFLI) community.

Happy New Year! It's new years day and I just checked in my bags, breezed through security and am relaxing at the spa in JFK. Who says you can't enjoy the journey? 2016 is set to be an amazing year (perhaps because I spent most of the last few months of 2015 planning for it)! … Continue reading Adventures begin again!
