Janiczek community members recently enjoyed an evening of sushi rolling at Izakaya Den in Denver. Chef and Owner Yasu Kizaki taught twenty clients and employees about the history, types, and methods of rolling sushi.
“Everyone enjoyed meeting each other and we learned some fascinating things from a master of his craft,” said Brady Siegrist, partner. “It was a rather unique cultural experience.”
This year, the Janiczek team resolved to nurture personal and professional connections between community members.
“Many of our clients reside in the greater Denver area,” said Siegrist. “Our team plans to present future opportunities for clients to get to know one another. One of our goals is to explore topics and activities that seek to enhance life and living in some way.”
Whether discussing investments, longevity, or sushi, the benefits of connecting Janiczek community members can be powerful. Future events are in the planning stages, so if you are interested in learning more about the growing Janiczek community, let us know!
Books, Reading and Knowledge
“I read and read and read. I probably read 5 to 6 hours per day. I read five daily newspapers, I read a fair number of magazines, I read 10k’s, I read annual reports, and I read a lot of other things too. I’ve always enjoyed reading. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest.”
– Warren Buffett
In other words, reading opens one’s mind to bigger and better things. Another voracious reader, Bill Gates, recently shared his picks for some good summer reading. And who wouldn’t be interested in reading what a brilliant thinker like Gates found illuminating?
Of course, the Janiczek community isn’t short on good book recommendations either. In December, our team offered up some of our favorite books of the year, and our client community responded with some great picks of their own. (One client recommendation made the current Bill Gates list … great minds think alike, right?!)
So, as you begin your summer reading, whether to learn or to simply escape, we gladly share a few of our picks. Personally, I’ll be reading one of Bill Gates’ picks, Origin Story: A Big History of Everything by David Christian.
If you have book recommendations, by all means, let me know!
