From Walls Street’s Original “Crusher” to Philanthropic Investor and Contributor with Carolyn Cushman Desena
One of the biggest challenges we face when we come up with an idea is taking it to the execution phase. We generally spend so much time planning, analyzing, asking for advice and opinions from multiple people, that we sometimes miss the opportunities that are right in front of us.
