My daughter Hannah and I went to a trip to India. We visited a small part of this large country, the most populous in the world.
As I am looking back at this trip, it was really not about Europe, the lakes, the ice cream that we had every evening, or the museums. The best experiences were the conversations we shared while we strolled the streets or had over dinner.
In my interview with “What is Stoicism”, I discuss how stoicism can help us improve our personal and professional lives.
My newest book, Soul in the Game, is now live and available for purchase. It has nothing to do with investing, but has everything to do with something far more important: living a meaningful life.
I recently took Jonah and Hannah to NYC for a long weekend. Jonah was leaving for Israel that Sunday and Hannah and I decided to join him for the weekend to inhale the art and culture that New York has to offer.

This is my newest book. It has nothing to do with investing. In fact, it is a deeply personal collection of inspiring stories and hard-won lessons that weave together insights from classical composers, ancient Stoics, and contemporary thinkers. It’s a tapestry of practical wisdom that has helped me overcome some of my greatest challenges – in work, family, identity, and health.
On the 30th Anniversary of my family’s arrival in the United States from Soviet Russia, I reflect on my time here. After recounting the hard early days in a new country when I was “fresh off the boat”, I offer perspective on how America has changed since I arrived. What I see now is, in some ways, more troubling than what I found all those years ago as a new immigrant.
The Financial Times recently published an article about my travails in recruiting. After sharing the article, I expand on what I learned about recruiting, teams, and culture since becoming CEO of IMA.
