It's a privilege to give

This week I was inspired by the beautiful and iconic Diane von Furstenberg. She was quoted in the book Influence, “Yes, you’ve got to work for it– but to be able to have it all you have to give back, because giving back is part of what you get. It’s a privilege to give. And to share.” So to give back, I joined the Santa Monica Junior Chamber of Commerce (, a non-profit full of ambitious, philanthropic young professionals. I attended my first meeting and was thrilled by the enthusiasm of this group. Excited and hopeful for the difference we stand to make this coming year. And, looking forward to the richness and experiences it will bring.
