We had the good fortune of connecting with Alan Gabay and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alan, what matters most to you?
Being honest to myself and the people in my life. When I was growing up the most important lesson that I learned from my parents was to be truthful. Even when I did something wrong and knew I would be punished for it, they always said that being honest and understanding why it was wrong, would make me a better person. As an adult I took that lesson with me and realized that being honest to the people I interact with, in both my personal and business lives, would always leave people with a very positive impression of who I am.
What should our readers know about your business?
I’ve always been someone who looks at the “big picture” and then fills in all the details. I’ve worked in many different companies as the person who knows how to “get the deal done” As a child I was taught to listen when someone was speaking to me, understand what they were saying, and then ask questions afterwards. I always brought that lesson into my professional life. By listening to my clients, understanding their goals, and asking the right questions… I can always be assured that I will bring each client the success they want.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
As I am currently living in Miami, that would be a weekend full of Sun, Fun, Good Food and Local Culture. That would include going to the beach, taking a ride on a boat around the city, exploring the art + culture of the Design District, Wynwood and Little Haiti as well as the many amazing restaurants that have opened up locally by world renowned chefs who have all come to Miami as this city has grown in the last 20 years, from a small sunny beach community, to a World Renowned International Multi-Cultural destination.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
They say that the most important influences in ones life occurs when you’re a child. And I agree. The values and strengths that I have all come from a very loving and caring family. My parents and grandparents were very involved in my life and taught me a lot of different people and their cultures and also about survival. They were raised in the depression and lived through the Holocaust and saw so much horror and sadness when they were young. They taught me to persevere and plan ahead.
