Halloween may have been last week, but a Manhattan family got quite a scare before then.

With countless trained chefs to choose from in the world, finding a match can be difficult.

  image003

I’ve found that the majority of my clients have found/learned ways of making tons of money, but along with this good fortune comes the “Frankenstein”: The 15,000+ square foot house or apartment, the 2nd and 3rd (& sometimes many more) properties, boats, planes, and a fleet of cars. But these are still family units, with the same basic needs of all families, compounded now with complications of all the toys mentioned above.

It means this is someone who can be trusted, who won’t complain, and who knows how to streamline. It’s important because it’s all [ Read the rest…]
