Describe your typical workday
No two days are alike. I have been in business for over 30 years and it has been a constant renewing process. I am still learning which is such a great thing.
If you could work anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I love great weather and would love to live in California because they have great weather all year round.
How would you describe your workspace?
Organized chaos, I am always multi tasking. The first thing I do when I wake up is check my blackberry. I am answering emails from bed, as I am applying my makeup and even while eating breakfast. I make every space my office space whether I am working in my actual office, on the street or in a car service I am always working.
What is one “work item” you can’t live without?
If you could switch careers for a day, what would you do?
I would build homes
You have so much going on; can you give us one tip on how you keep it all together?
I am constantly thinking forward about the next step. The key to success is not over thinking; if you over think you will become too stressed with everything going on. Be a doer!
What’s it like being a Real Housewife of New York?
It is a mixed bag. I am constantly being approached by strangers who think they know me which can be very disarming. Then again, I am lucky to be invited to red carpet events and meet amazing people.
What are 3 things fans don’t know about you?
a. My mother in-law at 82 years older moved in with me for 10 years.
b. I was the general contractor for my apartment in Manhattan and I was the decorator for both my apartment and home in the Hamptons.
c. I am a great cook. I can whip up a sit down dinner for 30 people no problem!
