This week's podcast features my friend and mentor Kim Ann Curtin. Kim is known as the Wall Street Coach and is well known author, especially among the NYC cognoscenti. Kim offers mastermind coaching for Finance Executives, Fortune 500 companies and start up ventures.
In 2015, Kim released the book, Transforming Wall Street, which is a treatise on the state of the 'street' today after the financial debacle of the 2008-2009 era. Her book asks the question if it's possible for money managers to operate in this new challenging financial environment in both moral and ethical ways. This is the new dilemma. How do we do this exactly? Kim's book gives fascinating insight into the 'new street.'
We talk about childhood influences, favorite books, authors, movies, and where just exactly we are in the world today.
She's funny and kind. Would you believe she's a great singer too? Yep.... it's true, so dig in!
