Bullard And The Billionaire Whisperer

In 1905, at the age of 40, Miss Elsie de Wolfe gave up her struggling acting career for good and set up residence at the historic Washington Irving House with Miss Elizabeth Marbury, a prominent theatrical agent. The combination of de Wolfe’s style and Marbury’s connections transformed Irving House into the American version of a […]

Passive Income…Now

With the rise of the Internet and designers’ increasing savvy to opportunities for licensing and information products, the phrase passive income has created a new sense of urgency. Everybody wants to start earning some, now. I get it. Earning money on the work you’ve already done, in perpetuity, sounds pretty good but unless you get […]

How Do You Choose To Lead?

In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. It was the culmination of unrest and critical debate that had been occurring with the expansion caused by industrialization at the start of the 1900s. A year later, on the 28th day of February, the first National Woman’s […]

The First Choice Is Not Always The Right Choice

I love award shows and I’m particularly excited about the Oscars this year because I’ve had the opportunity to screen most of the films and also because I’m heading to a party hosted by the Producers Guild. I’m rooting for Whiplash and The Theory of Everything, films that were character-driven, high-stakes emotionally and beautifully acted […]

Get The Team You Really Want

I move quickly. I think fast. I talk fast and for the most part, I solve problems fast. I’ve always been this way. It’s probably why I was drawn to production. In one of my early Supervising Producer roles in LA, I took over mid-season and had to manage a team of people I didn’t […]

Most of us have learned that it’s not a good idea to burn bridges, because we think of that concept in terms of relationships.  But what if we reframe it in terms of risk?  Burn the bridges that keep you “safe”, that keep you from diving into running your business and your life with all […]

So You Want An Affluent Client?

According to Census Bureau data, only 20 percent of American households ever break the six-figure mark. When you do, you join the ranks of a segment dubbed the mass affluent, new rich or HENRYs (high earners, not rich yet). This group is the professional and entrepreneurial class that drives the economy. They’re relentless strivers who […]

Make 2013 Your Year To Thrive

Back in November my friend, celebrity make-up artist Kenetia Lee, wrote a facebook post saying survival was boring and that she had made a decision:  2012 is her year to thrive.  She asked who else was in. It only took a nanosecond before I said, YES! and shared it. Revive. Grow. Luxuriate. Prosper. Flourish. That’s […]
