Meditate to Success: The Skill Every Entrepreneur Should Develop

By David Meltzer

I call meditation “The Wizard of Oz” or my “behind the scenes” component to my business mantra of “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun”. I start off every day mediating for twenty minutes. I find the practice so important on so many levels.If you haven’t meditated before, it’s akin to when you first decide to start wo

Meditate: It's That Simple

By David Meltzer

After building a career from speed and flashing lights – as I did in the sports and entertainment industries – it might be surprising that I attribute my success to finding a daily stillness. But that’s exactly the case. My 20 minutes of daily meditation is a vital part of who I am. It balances the hectic nature of life, clears my mind to focus on what’s important, and simp

Be More Interested Than Interesting

By David Meltzer

The biggest downfall of people is what I term “Their Stickability”. They talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. You need to be more interested than interesting … in not just people, but places and things as well. It’s about asking questions in order to educate yourself and then listening if you’re talking to someone or researching to find your answers. The uni

Free Legal Counsel: Greed is Bad

By Albert Goldson

The movie The Counselor (2013), an extraordinarily dark movie with an All-Star cast and directed by Ridley Scott, presents a different perspective about greed that few films discuss.

I Sold This Pen to the Wolf of Wall Street

By Albert Goldson

Tragically handwriting is a lost art particularly in the 21st century. It’s quite easy to tap away on a laptop or other device to create your next project. In a world that demands results yesterday, it’s faster and more efficient with a device with built-in auto-fill, auto-spell corrections and easy-to-access dictionaries. And it’s here to stay.Notwithstanding writing instrum

Freeing Your Mind to Become An Internationalist

By Albert Goldson

After your overseas study stint and you’ve clicked your heels and returned to ‘Kansas’, you’ll experience culture shock when you return home, perhaps not immediately but eventually. The reaction is different for each person. Universally everything will look and even feel different. Like astronauts living for weeks in zero gravity, your linguistic immersion will occasionally

Acquire Global Ambassadorship through Overseas Study

By Albert Goldson

For those coming-of-age young adults entering college or already enrolled in college, make sure to venture off to a foreign country before you graduate where the overwhelming part of population speaks a language other than English. This eliminates all British Commonwealth countries, Puerto Rico (technically a US Commonwealth), and Mexico (too many Americans there). The goal is to make yourself as

Manhattan: Still Fantasy Island

By Albert Goldson

During the 1970s through 1980s, except for a few select neighborhoods, NYC was a dystopian “armpit of a town”.  During the 1990s NYC improved dramatically and with gentrification in the 21st century was able to accomplish much.  This included the repurposing, often through rezoning, of industrial neighborhoods like Soho and Tribeca and down-trodden residential areas in the Ea
