Special guest: Jeff Shavitz
Jeff I. Shavitz worked as an Investment Banker at Lehman Brothers in the Corporate Finance/Mergers & Acquisitions Group and specialized in transactions ranging from $250MM-$500MM. With an offer in hand to attend graduate school to earn his MBA to continue his climb up the corporate ladder, Jeff consciously decided to leave this fast-paced, well-paying position to starting up a 1-person business; friends would say “what are you thinking?” His passion and purpose for creating “his life” was his driving force in determining his business future. It was helped in no small part when out of his New York apartment while still working on Wall Street, he created “Spectoculars”, a paper folding binocular that received a NFL license in 1991 and 250,000 pairs were distributed at Super Bowl XXX.
