"Members consider me the Chairman of the Board, a personal board of highly talented individuals, seeking to make better investment decisions. They also bring business, personal and family issues to the meetings, such as how to raise socially responsible children or how to maximize philanthropic giving. While each member is trying to live a rewarding life full of purpose and passion, they look to me as the leader, for guidance, advice and resources on all these matters. My life’s purpose is to inspire and connect others to achieve extraordinary things, and serving as the Chair for the South Florida groups allows me to lead with purpose and passion."
