The essence of being street smart is the ability to take advantage of lucky breaks. And everyone—at least once in their lifetime—gets a lucky break. What they do with that lucky break varies tremendously from individual to individual. Street smart people don’t just sit around waiting for something to happen and fall into their laps—they create their lucky breaks.
In a new book, Street Smart: The Primer for Success in the New World, brothers John Positano (a successful lawyer) and Dr. Rock Positano (director of the Non-Surgical Foot and Ankle Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City) offer ideas on how to catch these lucky breaks, whether you’re a millennial or a boomer.
