    “Happiness is not the absence of problems; it is the ability to deal with them”  –  Steve Maraboli Dear Clients and Friends, Who’s tired of the Greek Tragedy? Raise your hand. The first Greek default occurred in the fourth-century B.C. when the 13 city states of the Delian League borrowed money from the Temple of Delos and defaulted on most of the loan.

As I walked around the 9-11 site and surrounding neighborhood this spring, 13 and ½ years later, it is evident that Lower Manhattan and the Financial District has rebounded like nothing I had ever imagined possible. Stronger than ever. I have long held the belief that Read more...
