The Days in the Life of an Entrepreneur

Humility

The lessons of humility are always following you as an entrepreneur:  

“Listen to your customers.”  

“Make it work.”  

“Shake that guys hand.”  

“Wipe the floors.”  

“Pay yourself last.”

“Take feedback.” 

“Smile today.” 

The great thing about humility is that it allows you the space to think, reflect and digest. If you aren’t always taking action, you are able internalize and grow.  It is a lesson that gives back constantly if you allow it to.

1. Tell us about your business and when you started?

I’m a solo attorney in Jersey City with a practice that focuses mainly on real estate law. I work closely with people who are buying and selling property, whether it’s first-time homebuyers who are purchasing their first home, to real estate developers looking to gut renovate brownstones and turn them into condos. I work with landlords and tenants to help make things right when they go wrong. Essentially, I’m a problem solver: I do my best to ease my clients’ minds by making an otherwise complicated and frustrating process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

Why should you host your next meeting or event in Jersey City?

To begin with, it has the most beautiful city views in the NYC area! Jersey City is less than a mile from Manhattan and has all the sophistication and entertainment you expect from a major city with none of hassles and congestion you get across the river. Your guests will be awed by the riverside walks, mural covered buildings and eclectic culture. Jersey City is the most culturally diverse city in the United States and the streets and vendors are an expression of that diversity. Not to mention, parking is easier and more affordable and the food options are endless.
