Laurie Golub On Female Superstars

New York

During a 45-minute Q&A, HFZ Capital Group COO Laurie Golub (right with EisnerAmper partner Lisa Knee) recently said her willingness to make changes and take chances in her career was inspired largely by Spencer Johnson’s motivational classic, Who Moved My Cheese?"

Laurie said she asks herself on a daily basis, “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”

The keynote chat took place during RealInsight’s Fifth Annual Real Estate Women’s Forum at Manhattan’s New Yorker Hotel last month.

Still, gender remains a hot topic in the industry. Lisa asked if there would be a point when it wasn't. Laurie said the industry has changed dramatically in the last decade or so, with powerful women like Forest City Ratner’s MaryAnne Gilmartin holding top positions. “Women are now superstars in so many different areas of the industry,” she said.
