Wall Street Wisdom: Andrew Lanyi
Posted by Larry Doyle on August 7, 2009 4:23 PM |
Wall Street as an industry is very easily vilified. I panned it myself the other day. That said, there are a lot of great people on Wall Street just as there are great people in every industry.
On that note, I was moved by a story in this morning’s Wall Street Journal: A Survivor of Nazi Brutality Who Ascended Wall Street.
The individual profiled, Andrew Lanyi, clearly had a unique outlook on life and Wall Street. I am particularly impressed by his discipline, mentoring, and wisdom.
Do yourself the favor of reading this piece. Savor Mr. Lanyi’s life story like a fine wine. There are rich lessons here for all of us.
