As the founder and CEO of two successful companies before the age of 30, my learning curve was nothing but steep. I started Dane PCG, a NYC based affordable housing brokerage, in 2008 and by 2013 founded Saxon/Hart, an event production firm that focuses on causes to create a social impact. But despite the continued success of both my companies, I found myself struggling under their weight. I wanted to be able to say you can do it all, but it just wasn’t proving true.
