I would like to thank Joe, my doorman, for introducing us – indirectly.
On December 31, 2013, Joe wished me a ‘fearless’ year.
Although there are 1,025,109.8 words in the English language, last year I focused on that one word.
‘Fearless’ came with me like a talisman into every interaction, every meeting, every presentation, and every new business pitch.
That word became my 2014 operating principle.
By being fearless, I had the pleasure of meeting and working with each of you.
Those times were highlights in my year.
You are a complex, interesting and delightful group, full of curiosity and generosity.
Thank you Joe for bringing us together.
