We are heading for a transition period now. With sizzling August behind us, I believe most of us are looking forward to the cooler days of September and the changes that are coming. I’ve always thought that the year starts in September rather than January because a lot of things are happening, e.g., going back-to-school, buying new clothes, making holiday plans for the last four months of the year.
In July I had an interesting encounter with a student currently enrolled at Baruch College, located at Lexington Avenue and 24th Street. I was looking for the nearest Staples store to buy computer paper so I looked around and decided to ask a pretty young lady standing nearby.
“Do you have any idea where the nearest Staples is located,” I said. “Sorry,” she replied, “I’m from China and I’ve only been in New York 15 days.” That got my attention!

We’ve all heard stories about well-known models and their lucrative careers. At the very top there’s 33-year-old Gisele Bündchen, the world’s highest-paid model who, according to Forbes magazine, earned a whopping $47 million in 2013. Put another way, the New York Post recently broke this figure down to $128,000 a day or $5,333 per hour.
This is where we are in 2015 but years ago, modeling as a career was entirely different.
