Things are heating up in New York both figuratively and quite literally. How are you managing with the 90 plus degree temperatures? This weekend, you could have found me riding with the top down, sipping white wine on the water, in a movie theater, at the pool, enjoying a cone a vanilla frozen yogurt or accessing other sources of air conditioning.
This past week, I retrieved my things that were in storage since my relocation back in November. I am beyond thrilled to have my sundresses and sandals back, at last! Not a moment too soon. I’ve been tooling around the city and beyond by car, which is quite the luxury! I don’t typically drive in New York, but my friends’ car needed to be picked up at the airport, so it made getting my things from storage convenient. While I admittedly am not the savviest city driver, I love public transportation, it was a rush to drive into the skyline and crossing both the George Washington Bridge and the Tappan Zee Bridge Bride is quite euphoric.
I completed the Growth Venture program at The Levin Institute on Wednesday. While it was similar my previous FastTrac opportunity, I am so happy I was accepted into this advanced class. The skills, knowledge and relationships I am taking away from this are invaluable. I recommend all entrepreneurs consider these courses. Sincere thanks to our leaders Franne McNeal and Derrick Webster for facilitating a month of practical and powerful conversations, valuable lessons and useful business skills and tools.
In the spirit of Independence Day, I have been reminded so much lately how very lucky I am in the friend department and I hope they all know how much I appreciate their generosity now and always, be it in the form of space, time, transportation, support or advice. My friendships allows me to be independent and that is truly the greatest gift. Thank you!
Please join my family and I as we root my dad on to a speedy recovery. He has a bum bum and is having a difficult time getting around. I am hoping it’s not a long road, but fear it may be. His health advocate will be calling his doctor for a full report this morning.
I hope you all had a lovely, long, relaxing and delicious holiday weekend!
