Donald Trump--From Broadway Producer to President
Huffington Post - 13 days
By Helaine Feldman, ZEALnyc Contributing Writer, February 14, 2017 He was 23 years old, had a degree from the prestigious Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and had an extremely profitable family business waiting for him. But Donald Trump thought he would like to be a Broadway producer. He met with David Black, a successful producer (George M! with Joel Grey and Bernadette Peters; The Impossible Years with Alan King; and Ready When You Are, CB! with Julie Harris, among others) and they joined together--Black providing the experience and know-how and Trump putting up a sizeable chunk of the money--for a new comedy, Paris Is Out, slated for the 1969-70 season.

9 Power-Packed Books to Help You Live Your Best Life Ever
Huffington Post - about 2 months
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go" - Dr. Seuss My friend told me he doesn't read. What? I was in disbelief. It's like saying you don't want to be healthy, so you don't exercise. Or that you don't want to impact the world, so you have no goals or vision. But then, when I thought about it some more, it made sense. If people read with a passion like the most wise and successful people I know, do, our society, on average, would be far more than it is today. If people read books, they'd accept who they are and live to their best, instead of projecting their shadows onto others. And we wouldn't be living in a world where hating our jobs is okay, where unhealthy relationships are acceptable, and where goal-setting and having a vision only happens on the first of the year. Here are the books to help set up your life for success. 1. Love Yourself Like Your Life Depend ...

Great-Grandma Just Can't Handle This Racy Firemen Calendar
Huffington Post - about 1 year
When Mary Ann Davis' granddaughter presented her with a hunky firemen calendar on Christmas Eve, the 80-year-old great grandmother absolutely lost it, as you can see in this hilarious viral video.  "We had her open it and she was shocked and couldn't stop laughing," Davis' granddaughter, Kari Smith-Jones, told The Huffington Post. "She laughed for two minutes straight." Literally.  "Ooo-ooh, oh, whoa. I don't think I can stand this," the great-grandmother of 14 said, opening the calendar. "Isn't that cute?" she says, before falling into a fit of unstoppable, uncontrollable, hysterical laughter.  Smith-Jones says she originally received the calendar herself from friends but thought her great-grandma would get a kick out of it. She made sure her husband, Derek Jones, was on hand to capture it all.  The video, originally uploaded to share with friends, has received over 55,000 views on YouTube.  But the best part is that it's brought attention to a good cause.  ...

Learn Together to Grow Fast
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Learning from someone who has been there, done that, it is no longer OPTIONAL to succeed quickly. I have been fascinated for a long time on the topic of learning in general, and, specifically, the role of conversations with the right people to accelerate learning. As we speak, Yale University researchers are just now exploring the changes in brain chemistry when two people are engaged in a conversation. We don't have to wait for the research to be concluded, because, in real life, I have experienced that myself. I know for a fact that ONE conversation can change the trajectory of your life, and I have heard this over and over again from other successful entrepreneurs and business leaders. I have also found from my own experience that new ideas emerge when I am engaged in healthy intellectual conversation with my mentors or students (I teach at Founder Institute in Silicon Valley). It seems to be that we all have amassed an incredible amount of knowledge and wisdom from our ...
