And we are only weeks away from delivering my new book, “WHY BE HAPPY?,” to my editor at Da Capo.


In the News

Thanks to Oakley Capital, a London-based private equity firm, Time Out Market is coming to Boston!  You’ll soon be able to enjoy burgers, bagels, BBQ, and who-knows-what while funneling capital to investors around the globe, and funding the Conservative Party in England.

Founded by Peter Dubens, “Managing Partner of the Oakley Capital Group,” the firm, according to their website is, “a privately-owned asset management and advisory group comprising Private Equity, Venture Capital, Corporate Finance managing approximately €1.6 billion.”

Mr. Dubens is a great supporter of PM Theresa May, the Conservative party leader in  charge of removing the UK from, the EU.

According to Private Equity News: “Peter Dubens, managing partner at private-equity house Oakley Capital, donated £50,000 to the Conservative Party in late May (2017) as senior figures from U.K. finance dug deep to push Theresa May over the line.”

Now what could beat that?  Isn’t it grand?

So, please, Boston-based PR and media: Let’s celebrate Time Out Market knowing that your support is funding right wing politics.

Bonus: A hot cup of coffee and you get the chance to support the 1% in England.

Knowing that your money is being used by private equity for projects and the personal lifestyles of the elite is pretty terrific.

Happy May Day!
