I had the great pleasure of being introduced to the JICNY six years ago through my girlfriend, and now my wife Lauren, who met Steve Eisenberg on a trip to Israel in 2006. She raved about Steve's Monday Night classes so I joined her one night to see what it was all about. Still today, I remember walking away that night spiritually enlightened and wildly impressed by Steve's kindness. Additionally, Steve recommended I touch base with Jodi about the JICNY networking group regarding the private tutoring business I started in 2006 (PrivatePrep.com). Now, I am proud to say that I am an active member of the JICNY networking community. I lead meetings twice a month for the networking group that continues to flourish which has generated some great business for Private Prep. I have attended numerous JICNY events included the Annual Galas events in June and developed strong relationships and friendships within the community. I am looking forward to continuing to work with the JICNY to open my mind to new things, grow my business and give back to the community. Thanks to Steve, Jodi, Gavin and all of you for creating such a wonderful organization.
