WOMEN IN FILM GALA!!!

What a great night - to hang with old friends and meet new ones...Inspiring for sure. Sad for sure. It was unbelievable how many recipients of the awards all mentioned that their retirement plans were somewhat non-existent. Although I'm sure a few were jesting, I also felt the truth in what they were saying. I myself have been following the guru's of Suze Orman and Oprah over the past several years since my lifestyle change (READ D - I - V - O - R - C - E) AND the sale of my company to a publicly traded firm whose name I shall not put in print but slag at every oppportunity (let it go...just let it go)!!!

While young at heart, all of the winners spoke some truth, in the fact that 'our industry' (film) does not have any retirement structure or protection in place which even to myself sounds so well - dare I say - WRONG!!! But totally true.

Now I need to see what I can do to change that around...stay tuned!!! Damn and the evening started so well.

Pics will be uploaded later...
