I finished writing this, my third book, today, and I can't help but be grateful and think back on the series of coincidences and the people who got me here. I am lucky to be surrounded by a family who supports me, friends that make me smile, and partners that demand the best of me. And most of all the students who push me to be better and whom I always hope to be better for. You inspire me every day and make teaching a joy. I am a better trader and person today, and I can't help but think that you all have a little something to do with that.
Success is just a series of coincidences that we can seldom see coming but must be ready for regardless . . . and that seems to be the inside joke of life.
To the love of my life, Herbie, who knows that love doesn't mean doing everything for me but making me feel that I can do anything. Thanks for believing in me when I have doubts, holding my hand when I lose my step, and knowing when to let me run. There isn't a day you don't make me feel loved.
To my sister, Nila, the smartest, funniest, bravest, most generous, and most beautiful human being in my life. I don't know what I ever did to deserve you, but it must have been grand. You are my hero, my confidante, and the best reason I can think of that the world is a good place.
To my Ma, who gave me the best two gifts ever: life and my little sister. You have always been all my reasons, Mama.
I never feel alone when I am tackling new projects, and it's the people whom I have been fortunate ...
