For the record, this overdue market correction is not a new opinion of mine, I was of the same mind at the end of 2019.

The market conditions and pricing were reminiscent of the dot com bubble back in 2000 when we experienced a correction.

I promptly unloaded many of my investments. Then 2 months later as Covid tumbled the markets the mood du jour became to panic sell.

Seeing as I was never too good at sitting on the sidelines, however, I couldn’t turn down some of the bargains the market presented. …

About me

First off, thank you for visiting my page to read some of my writing and learn more about me.

I was born in the Ukraine back when it was the USSR and emigrated to NYC with my family as an infant. When I became a naturalized citizen at 5 years old, my parents gave me an American name so I would fit in, that’s how Dmitry or Dima (DEE-mah) became David.

I grew up in Queens, NY, attended the Bronx High school of Science, and later SUNY Binghamton for university.

I’ve worked on Wall Street, albeit the shady side of…

It was a Friday afternoon and I just received an email from my son’s 6th grade math teacher saying he had just missed his math exam. According to the teacher, he was logged in to class for virtual learning but didn’t respond to her messages regarding the midterm. I was dumbfounded as I had just checked in on him to make sure he was logged in and paying attention because of previous issues with his unsatisfactory engagement in class.

Turns out he went to the bathroom a few minutes after class began and spent more than half the class there…

When we promise someone a finished product we deliver, whether it’s our boss, our teacher, or a friend. How many workouts would we have missed at the gym had we not promised someone else we would show up?

Most days I lose track of time and then no longer feel like writing, I suspect that happens often in the writing profession. Finding time to write and balance it with all the other activities of daily life can be extremely challenging.

Currently writing is one of many projects for me, one I am committed to getting better at; it’s where my…

The other day when I woke up, I didn't feel like I had the energy to face the day or the world for that matter, really the same thing if you ask me. We all have those days from time to time where we don’t want to get out of bed and want to instead, pull the blankets over our heads and go back to sleep. I had one too many of those days recently and made a commitment not to give in to those feelings anymore. Instead, I would forge on with my day with any action towards my…

I remember being told a joke during my first summer working on Wall Street…

“How come Tootsie Pops will never go out of business? Because a sucker is born every minute.”

To be fair, the places I worked bore more resemblance to the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” than your ordinary run of the mill financial fuckery.

I didn’t like the joke then and I don’t like it now, the only difference is that nowadays I no longer work for the dark side, but have instead become a self-appointed Director of Do-gooding, a role I take seriously.

This morning…

It had been almost 20 years since I last saw a building crumble the way the Champlain towers in Surfside, Florida, did last week, and that was 9–11. On 9/11/2001, I worked merely 5 blocks away from the former site of the twin towers and remember how my building trembled when the first of the towers was struck.

Last week, when the Champlain towers collapsed I was once again close by, a mere 5 miles away, and although I didn’t feel the physical impact this time around, the emotional impact could be felt throughout Florida and the US.

I must have watched the Comedy classic movie “What About Bob?” at least 5–10 times in the last 20–30 years, but it wasn’t until my last viewing of the movie during the pandemic that I realized it was a self-help diamond in the rough. The movie and its insights couldn’t have come at a more crucial time for me or the millions of others struggling with life’s woes during the Pandemic.

Personally, I had just shuttered a business I spent over 2 years building and was in a rut about what I was going to do next with my life…

Back when I used to work in digital advertising, we would talk about the Rule of Defaults, which states that 95% of people won’t go to the trouble of changing settings on their devices. The example that stood out most was how 95% of PC users would use Internet Explorer as their “browser of choice,” because it was the default setting on the computer.

This is a perfect example of Newton’s first law of motion, which states that objects at rest stay at rest, while objects in motion stay in motion, unless acted upon by an external force — also…

After years of working in the beauty industry alongside doctors and estheticians, I have come to the realization that the whole concept of anti-aging is flawed and it focuses all our energy on that which we Do Not want. I have yet to meet anyone who was “pro-aging,” have you?

I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there. — Mother Teresa
