TOBY NADLER IN THE 20TH CENTURY, the Ladies Home Journal slogan was “Never underestimate the power of a woman.” That pronouncement aptly characterizes the many work-life accomplishments of esteemed entrepreneur Toby Nadler, who has been respectfully described by a bank president as charmingly persistent and persistently charming. A vibrant leader with years of past experience as the owner of innovative wholesale and retail businesses, Nadler’s influence and creative style today complement her unwavering passion, dedication and talent as the founder and president of WomenInBusiness.Org. Since the mid-90s, Nadler has established herself as a leading powerhouse. Through high-profile conferences, onsite special events and digital experiences, she has valued the signature business legacies of outstanding women in business and championed the totality of their achievements serving as role models and mentors.

POWERFUL WOMEN

Toby Nadler “WomenInBusiness.Org is the national distinction for successful, influential women entrepreneurs, C-suite executives and professionals from all sectors,” says Nadler. “Mixing business and pleasure with a point and celebrating ‘SweetSuccess’ – moral leadership be-

yond the attainment of wealth, power, fame – is rewarding on many levels. The curated, exciting experiences and positive interactivity have provided fresh opportunities to meet other like-minded, successful individuals.” Nadler purchased the WomenInBusiness. Org URL when most of us were talking on brick cell phones. Her purposeful focus has resulted in an ever-expanding brand built through authentic business relationships, dialogue and repartee sustained by collaboration with men and women supporters in diverse business sectors. Under her insightful and skillful leadership, WomenInBusiness.Org continues to exceed expectations through the specially formatted Business Salons, original TalkWalks and now the launch of The Swag Game, the first women’s business game. In March 2019, WomenInBusiness.Org will mark another milestone with a Champagne celebration, The 20th Grand Business Salon, at the Cas-

S7

tle Hotel & Spa in Tarrytown, New York. Participants in the Business Salon include the Woman of The Year, A’Lelia Bundles. She is the great-great-granddaughter of Madam C.J. Walker, recognized as the first female selfmade millionaire in the United States. Nadler says, “Tickets have already sold out for the ‘Salon Castle,’ but look for the special ‘Swag Salon’ in early spring 2019.” In honor of all successful women throughout the U.S., WomenInBusiness.Org has commemorated two bronze plaques and trees in public dedication ceremonies (2006 and 2016) at the Kensico Dam in Westchester County, New York. There is no doubt Toby Nadler is one of those extraordinary role models and mentors celebrated by WomenInBusiness.Org. Nadler laments she has still not found the time to write her memoir about limitless horizons and the many dreamers and doers she has come to know while living her own SweetSuccess.

PCI Creative Group An award-winning marketing company PCI Creative Group was founded by Anne Chiapetta and Mary Ferrara in 1985. Since then, they have built a successful marketing services company that has seen incredible changes in technology and the ways in which people communicate. The two sisters started their business in the basement of their mother’s home. As their clients asked them to handle larger and broader reaching projects, they expanded their business to a full staff, along with a production facility to handle those needs. Eventually Frank Chiapetta, (Anne’s husband) joined the company and heads up the production side of the business. They have won several awards for their designs over the years, in several categories, including non-profit, crossmedia campaigns, direct mail and publications. The company is also very involved with non-profits, and Anne and Mary have sat on the boards and committees of several non-profit organizations, and donate their services when possible. Left: Anne Chiapetta and Right: Mary Ferrara, founders of PCI Creative Group in Stamford, Connecticut, since 1985.

With strong roots in the fundamentals of design and print, they use these

ENTRUSTING THE MCINTYRE GROUP WITH YOUR BUSINESS’ FUTURE AS WE ENTER THE NEW YEAR, I have been doing a lot of thinking about why the candidates and client companies we work with come to The McIntyre Group and how we can deliver more value to them in 2019. In doing so, a lot of common themes emerged, like: • “I think I’m ready for something else, but the idea of change is honestly kind of scary.” • “I am comfortable where I am, but am I missing a great opportunity somewhere else?” • “I don’t have time to manage the application, onboarding, oversight and review of employees.” That’s what they say when they first meet me, at least. Once we’ve worked together for a while, they all say the same things: “You listened to me. You cared. You were exactly what I needed.” We know when you work with us, it’s not just about finding your next paycheck or checking the next box on your hiring list. It’s about entrusting The McIntyre Group with your future. And we take that seriously. It’s time to change the narrative. It’s time to drive your career or business forward. It’s

I personally appreciate the trust our clients have placed in us for more than 30 years and I can’t wait to build on that by bringing our commitment to you even further to light moving forward. Keep an eye out -– you’ll see it.

Melissa Mongillo, president.

IAM MORE WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN is the story behind I Am More Scarsdale, an exciting and unique retail space for clothing, jewelry and accessories in the Village Center that offers, as the name suggests, MORE. It’s the more that is the reason smart women are supporting the effort by the two entrepreneurs behind the grand plan, Marcy Berman-Goldstein and Abbey Solomon. The MORE of I am More Scarsdale is the concept that clothing builds confidence, makes women feel strong, and makes them feel great about themselves by looking great. It’s all about the “know-how.” How to pair jeans with tees, cashmere with leather, scarves, bags and hats that turn offthe-rack into on-the-go, and the right jewelry for finishing touches. The co-owners have at their fingertips, the savvy their customers need to dress up or down, casual to chic, informal to elegant and day to night. However, clothing is just the be-

ginning at I Am More Scarsdale. The customers are women, many designers are women and then there are the relevant women’s issues, the philanthropy, and the giving back to support women’s causes that sets I Am More Scarsdale apart. I Am More holds informational events focusing on women’s wellness and donates a percentage of proceeds to relevant philanthropic organizations. In addition, I Am More collaborates with many local charities throughout the year for various Shop & Share events. It’s a winwin: great clothing for a great cause. I Am More Scarsdale is not just another retail store filling the former Child’s Play space. Like its predecessor, it is packed with merchandise with variety to please any and all customers. It may be a small store, but it has a big heart. Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and by appointment. www.iammorescarsdale. com. info@iammorescarsdale.com. 914-723-6673 (MORE)

MICHELE LAZZARA

TAX PARTNER, MARKS PANETH LLP MICHELE A. LAZZARA,

CPA, CGMA, is a Partner in the Purchase, New York office of Marks Paneth LLP, a premier accounting, tax and advisory firm that serves businesses and individuals throughout Westchester County and across the country. Rising to the top of a traditionally male-dominated industry has taken determination and skill, but above all else, Ms. Lazzara credits her success to the personal approach she takes to each client relationship and their unique tax challenges. With more than 20 years of public accounting experience, Ms. Lazzara has helped a wide segment of the Westchester business community. She has also served as Board President for the Westchester Estate Planning Council and the Westchester Chapter of the New York State Society of CPAs. But her passion has always been helping the individual client realize their wealth goals through strategic tax planning. As a partner in Marks Paneth’s Private Client Services Group, she focuses on tax and wealth transfer strategies for family businesses and high-net-worth individuals.

Much of the counsel Ms. Lazzara is providing her clients these days revolves around the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA). Quite to her surprise, between the TCJA’s reduced brackets and the elimination of the alternative minimum tax (AMT) for many taxpayers, it appears there are a good number of taxpayers benefitting under the new tax regime. Though it is impossible to predict right now whether the majority of her clients will see more or less tax savings, she expects all returns to look very different this year. We asked Ms. Lazzara for some of the best advice she’s giving her clients this year in light of the new tax law:

RECONSIDER CHARITABLE GIVING STRATEGIES

Michele Lazzara

Among the major changes under the TCJA is the near-doubling of the standard deduction. As a result, many taxpayers will no longer benefit from itemizing their charitable deductions. In light of this change, consider donor-advised funds, which allow you to group all donations into one year in order to exceed the standard deduction. The tax ben-

efit is immediate, but the funds can be granted to charities over subsequent years.

REASSESS YOUR 529 EDUCATION PLANS Changes in the TCJA also affect 529 education plans. Formerly, these plans were a tax-favored way to save for college tuition. Beginning in 2018, it is permissible to use up to $10,000 a year for tuition at a public, private or religious elementary or secondary school, with the withdrawals being exempt from federal income tax.

REVISIT YOUR WILL AND ESTATE PLANNING STRATEGY A good trusts and estates strategy is imperative to transferring maximum wealth to future generations. Under the TCJA, gift and estate exemptions have been doubled, and they may lower again after the provision expires in 2025. Now is a good time to revisit your estate planning strategy to determine if you can take advantage of higher exemption rates. Michele Lazzara can be reached at 914.909.3421 or mlazzara@markspaneth.com.

CHRISTINE MULLEN FOUNDER & CEO ASPIRE DIGITAL

FOLLOWING A 20-YEAR CAREER

as the marketing director of a textile firm in Manhattan, Mullen launched Aspire Digital Marketing Solutions, a full-service digital marketing agency that focuses on establishing a flourishing and results-driven digital presence for small businesses through branding, website design, social media marketing, marketing automation and digital advertising. Mullen implements a hands-on approach when creating custom marketing strategies designed to fit the unique needs of each business. Her boutique agency works with businesses of all sizes and at all stages of development. Whether it’s a brand-new bakery in Ridgefield, Connecticut, or a 5-star luxury hotel in the heart of Tribeca, she uses her wealth of marketing knowledge to meticulously assess what steps can be taken to drastically improve the growth and longevity of a business. Realizing that success is a team effort, Mullen handpicked a team of skilled marketing professionals who each contribute their own special talents in achieving client goals. In 2019, she brought in seasoned marketing pro-

fessional Bill Fow as a partner in the agency. His expertise has played a fundamental role in the growth of Aspire Digital Solutions. After more than two decades of collaborating with clients all over the country and globe, Mullen thoroughly understands and appreciates the delicate art of developing strong, meaningful and authentic relationships with each of her clients. She doesn’t just work with businesses; she works with people on an individual level to help them succeed as business owners. Her passion lies in implementing creative marketing strategies for both new and seasoned entrepreneurs in all fields to reach their full sales potential. “Our number one priority is helping small businesses grow by implementing big-business strategies and technology without the burden of a big-business budget,” explains Mullen. “We’re also very hands-on. Our business doesn’t succeed unless your business succeeds so we develop custom-designed marketing packages instead of offering a one-sizefits-all solution.” The Aspire logo, A (also a pyramid), is de-

signed to symbolize the company’s dedication to helping businesses develop strong marketing structures from the ground up. First, Aspire lays the foundation of branding before moving up the pyramid with other invaluable marketing solutions like a fully functional, user-friendly website that captures the essence of the business. “You only have one chance to make a first impression on your website. A great website says that your business is healthy and ready to take on new clients. In this competitive landscape, it’s imperative that you capture your audience before they click to your competitor’s site,” said Mullen. She currently serves as the president on the Advisory Council for Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce and sits on the board of Rides For Ridgefield as marketing director. She is also an active member of the Rotary Club in Ridgefield. When Mullen isn’t running her business, she is starting her day with a brisk workout at the gym, cheering on her two sons at their football, baseball and hockey games or taking her rescue dog Drew for walks around downtown Ridgefield.

Innovative, successful leaders have a positive impact on their organizations and they need powerful presentation and communication skills to do so. According to executive presentation skills expert Gilda Bonanno, it’s not enough to know your topic or subject well; you need to know how to communicate it effectively to others. Gilda Bonanno owns a Stamford, CT-based business which helps you effectively develop your communication, presentation and leadership skills so you can have more confidence, influence and success. Since 2006, she has worked with leading organizations, including GE, Travelers, Praxair, Assa Abloy, Wells Fargo and Yale University, on four continents from Chicago to Shanghai and Rio to Rome.

According to Bonanno, if your communications are not strategic or have no clear message, your audience (whether of one or one hundred) can perceive your poor communication skills as indicative of a lack of preparation, experience and knowledge, which leads to missed business and career opportunities.

Confidence.

“We all need coaches,” says Bonanno. “The good news is that all of these issues are fixable because communication skills can be learned, practiced and improved. Working with an experienced, knowledgeable coach accelerates your progress and it’s the best investment you can make.”

Influence. Success.

In addition to in-person executive presentation skills coaching and training, Bonanno also offers help virtually, through her YouTube channel, where her instructional videos have been viewed over 1 million times, and her newsletter which reaches subscribers in over 45 countries.
