#100 Erin Ardleigh on the pandemic in Manhattan and escapes with wine

Description

Erin Ardleigh is the founder and president of Dynama Insurance. She has worked in the insurance industry since 2002 and founded Dynama Insurance in 2014 to make the insurance planning process more transparent and more accessible for her clients. Erin personally oversees each client’s plan design and says that the best part of her job is meeting smart, successful people. She lives in Manhattan, where she tries to keep up with the city’s culinary and artistic happenings. 

Erin shares in our interview a bit about her work on the Advisory Board of the World Music Institute where they continue to enjoy music through wmi+ at home. Check it out at http://www.worldmusicinstitute.org/.

A lifelong passion for travel has led Erin across all seven continents. She finds that traveling and running a successful business have much in common – planning well, listening, continual learning and last minute problem solving when the unexpected happens! In fact, Erin runs a weekly virtual networking group for entrepreneurs. If you want to stay in touch with her, contact Erin at erin@dynamainsurance.com or 212-933-9456.

We talked a bit about the pandemic experience in New York. Where she lives in Manhattan, she has observed the pandemic up close and in living color, from the makeshift hospital in Central Park to the temporary morgue on the street below. So many of us have a limited view of the pandemic, gratefully, and it's important to make ourselves aware of what's happening globally so we can walk this out in emotional support of the world. She suggested we check out the stories in the NY TImes stories, to get a clear picture of the pandemic.

On a more cheerful note, talking about getting out of our own experience to understand a bit of the world, Erin describes her experience with Susanna Balbo, the first woman winemaker in Argentina, and I am seeing myself there. Maybe a women's wine retreat in the future. Find yourself there now: https://en.susanabalbowines.com.ar/

Or bring the wine tasting home. Navarro winery is providing COVD-friendly wine tasting at home. I can't wait to give this a try. If you want to join this tasting event, contact donna@360lifestrategies.com and we'll put you on the list.
