Sharna poseFirst Mondays, created and passionately led by Dan Schneider, has been a great contribution to the New York community.  His organization has filled a gap allowing people to network at a critical time in our history when the economy was faltering. The Foundation has offered a platform for learning, connecting, and supporting people’s effort to launch their dreams.  I have been an advisor since its inception and I am happy to be part of such a meaningful enterprise.

What an absolutely lovely lunch! Everyone had such interesting perspectives, and the trust obvious in the room was palpable. It always amazes me that in what would seem like such a diverse group from the outside, we’re not so diverse after all.
