Opening Bell

It was so great to see my peeps up there ringing the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange. It was Rob Michelson’s idea to do this. He works for the Exchange, is younger than me and has Stage IV disease. He’s been a powerhouse advocate for us. Of course, he wanted press and spectacle around it, but unfortunately when you get a phone call at 4:30 pm on Friday that you’re on for Monday morning, not a lot you can do. We’ll try and make the most of it while we can. The guy on CNBC at least mentioned it. It’s not like it’s a slow news day for business.

For right now, this is the front of the NYSE website:


Am I kicking myself for sending the “white background” logo instead of the one we use that pops on dark colors? Yeah, bigtime. It happened so fast, I was told to send a logo and I didn’t even think about the fact that it would be used on a monitor. Of course, I should have. I didn’t. Over the weekend, it dawned on me and by then it was too late. No one else is saying, “it would have been better if the logo was more legible…” but it’s bothering me. Nothing I can do about it now.
