The sun has slowly set upon one of Hallmark's most profitable holidays. President's Day week has now arrived. There are no expectations laid on us for this celebration... we can be seen in public without a partner and not an eyebrow will be raised.
Thank God my daughter Gena didn't listen to me. She never listened to me much, but this is one where Dad was dead wrong. She fell for him immediately, and after 20 years, you would think they were still on a honeymoon. I was right about the 30 guys that I ran off before him, but completely missed on Clay.
As we grow older, we tend to lean on our particular area of strength, honing our capabilities in that area. As we do so, we become attached to that kind of intelligence, and without much conscious thought, we can get stuck in it.
The incredible women changing the face of technology further this evolution as they impact our lives on a daily basis while demonstrating a new-found confidence, beauty, intellect and skill previously unexpected of women entering such fields.
As we all return to the four corners of the globe my humble hope is that we reflect on the Privilege, Platform and Perseverance, that being in Davos enabled, and we continue to work towards re-shaping the world.

Many of the children Ms. Montanti and GMRF have helped, are amputees from natural disasters and war zones in Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Libya, the United States and around the world.
