Editor’s Letter from Dreams People Issue 2017
There are 7.5 billion people in the world. 321 million people in the United States. 10 million people in Los Angeles County. This issue of Dreams is about people. People who live their dreams. People who aspire for more. The ambitious people who are the foundation of this beautiful place we call home – Los Angeles.
Speaking of aspiring for more, in this issue we look toward the future. The future of luxury automobiles – both on the ground and those which take to the sky – a dream for many since The Jetsons aired on television, and now becoming reality. The future of professional sports, with the NFL back in Los Angeles and its move to Las Vegas. And, the future of housing, which led us to our cover star, Mayer Dahan. As the Founder and CEO of Prime Five Homes and at the ripe age of just 33, Dahan has set out to build the future with his eco-friendly, luxury homes. Angelenos now have the environmentally sustainable living options which they have craved for so long.
Throughout the course of building this issue, I had the pleasure and honor of meeting many powerful women entrepreneurs. From the gold-standard stylist who works solely with the high-profile men and women of LA, to the secret weapon of matchmaking who curates billionaire love; and the queen of business law, who is ready to help you take your business to the next level. All of the empowered women featured in this issue have fearlessly turned their passions into successful careers by carving out their own paths in life.
I even had the pleasure of meeting the godfather of the lighting industry, who graciously welcomed us into his home and regaled tales from the past. You may recognize some of his beautiful architectural lighting masterpieces featured in The John Hancock building in Chicago, the World Trade Center in New York or the new Waldorf Astoria right here in Beverly Hills. As a man who has risen to the top, he’s had his fair share of fascinating encounters along the way.
In a world with self-driving and flying cars, it’s easy to forget about the very fabric of our world – people. People who dare to innovate. People who risk it all to help others. People who have risen to the top through genius and sheer determination. People, after all, is what it’s all about.
