My apologies for not blogging for some time, but there have been many changes in my life. The transition of my business and personal life from Connecticut to Florida took much longer than anticipated and I want to share my story with you.

One year and a half ago we moved to Florida. Arty had […]

Winter in New England seems to go on and on and on and on. If its not 10 degrees then its snowing like hell or both. The plow guys will be driving Ferraris in the Spring.  My ongoing comment has been “if you don’t like the winter weather why are you living in New […]

Network, Network, Network!

Network, Network, Network


I love to network!

I was at LaGuardia Airport waiting for my daughter to arrive from Burlington, Vermont where she was a freshman at the University. Her flight was delayed and to kill time I decided to park myself at a bar close to the arrival gate.  Sitting down next to two gentlemen […]

Separate The Bedroom From The Boardroom

I woke with a start.  The red neon numbers glared 2:00am on my clock. Staring at the ceiling fan silently turning above my head, my mind began to wander.  We had recently started our family business and as the marketer I was driven to making Arthur D. levy & Co. a household name.  New […]

What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

I recently read an article about the power of story telling for your family business.  Prior to reading it I had never given this thought.  With family businesses being the backbone of our country – (90% of all businesses are family owned) there are many stories to be told.

I co-founded and was […]

Is Anyone Out There?


I must have writer’s block.   I want to blog but I’m not sure what to write about and confused as to who is my audience.  While I think my past blogs have been informative, transparent, and enlightening, who in cyber space is reading them?  Is it the working women, stay at home moms, women […]

Fulfill Your Dreams

I’m not sure why I haven’t written my blog since last May, perhaps I had writer’s block, or maybe I was caught up in the lazy hazy days of summer.  Regardless of why, I am back and I am excited to continue where I left off; bringing attention to the issues that we face […]

What Are We Waiting For?

During a recent trip to San Francisco my husband, Arty and I decided to spend one day in Sausalito, an upscale “artsy” suburb of this historic city.  The sun was shining with a brisk breeze caressing my face as I sat on the upper deck of the ferry gazing at the Golden Gate Bridge en route.  I smiled as Tony Bennett’s voice resonated in my head, “I left my heart in San Francisco.”   As we pulled into the dock, I was reminded  of years back when we’d rent a bicycle for two and pedal across this famous bridge so we were familiar with the restaurants and galleries lining Main Street. […]

Letting Go

A couple of months ago my granddaughter went skydiving, not only did she go skydiving, but she did it in Switzerland.  Initially, I thought how scary, how could she do something as scary as this and how could she do it so far from home?  I couldn’t believe it!  I remember her as a little girl who was afraid to go to a Halloween party, afraid to go into a dark theater.  Was this the same girl?? […]
