Happy Friday!

6″ of snow last week, and another 6 in the forecast for the weekend – an atypical start to the winter here in Nashville.

What I’m Reading:

  • Hare With the Amber Eyes. Edmund de Waal is a world-famous ceramicist. Having spent thirty years making beautiful pots―which are then sold, collected, and handed on―he has a particular sense of the secret lives of objects. When he inherited a collection of 264 tiny Japanese wood and ivory carvings, called netsuke, he wanted to know who had touched and held them, and how the collection had managed to survive.  And so begins The Hare with Amber Eyes, this extraordinarily moving memoir and detective story as de Waal discovers both the story of the netsuke and of his family, the Ephrussis, over five generations. 

Best,

David

My Book:

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

The book is about how we shift from focusing on the things we want to avoid, to the things we want to accomplish with our wealth.  Doing so requires a person to articulate 3 key items –  Wealth Structure, Wealth Identity and ultimately a Wealth Strategy.  The book walks through each of these items in great depth, and guides the reader through a process to develop each.
