My Action of the Day: My mom was just traveling in Prague with me, but left a few hours ago. Really setting my intention on getting back into the zone after having such an amazing week exploring Europe with her.

My Tip of the Day: On negative thoughts: when you’re going downhill, your first instinct may be to pump the brakes, don’t. It’s the speed that carries you back to the top of the next one.

What do you love most about Your City? For me, this is something that changes often because I’m always traveling. What I’ll say about traveling is this: the cultural differences I’ve experienced escaping my bubble at home never fails to inspire new ideas while also helping me to relate and understand to other people better. I believe that to be my strongest asset as an entrepreneur and I don’t think that skillset gets emphasized enough.

My Action of the Day: Inspire hope through my actions and my work with my digital newsletter, Musings.

My Tip of the Day: Keep moving your body. Make sure to get up, stretch, and walk. The best way to stay healthy is to move.

What do you love most about Your City? I love New York’s architectural beauty andthe amount of clean air and water it has for a city of its size. I also love the diversity of amazing art institutions that it offers, and that it acts as a magnet for global convening.

What are you doing at 7:00 PM – I’m hopefully home! My husband and I often have after work engagements such as art openings or talks at the Council on Foreign Relations, but we always aim to be at our apartment for dinner by 8pm.
