Have You Heard the News?

Let’s talk about the news. I rarely watch the news anymore – certainly not the local news anyway. Part of that is because of technology and being able to get the latest on my phone, from social media. And a big part of it is that the news has become a place that scares you

An Inch Away

Let’s get real for a second. So I stand up here in front of you most weeks. There may be an air of confidence. I’ve worked hard to get to a place where I can enter any dynamic, any room, any conversation, and create an impact. And yet, like anyone else – like *everyone* else

Access the Bigger Conversation

Today let’s talk about “access.” Think about what it took to first get in these doors. Now think about what it took to get approved and accepted to *stay* in these doors. Elevate, we’re a hot ticket.

Living Without Fear

How do you play your game?

Last night I found myself at the Nassau Coliseum hanging out with a few Elevators, and watching the New York Islanders get their pucks handed to them. Sorry Mike Nerenberg. During the game I couldn’t help but notice that while at times they were aggressive, taking some risks, going after the puck and pushing themselves,
