Doug Levitt Embarks On An Epic Journey To Create “The Greyhound Diaries”

At the turn of the 21st century news reporter Doug Levitt seemed to have his future career mapped out for him as he was reporting from around the world as a correspondent for CNN and other major networks. However, Levitt felt something was missing in his life and the artistic experience within the U.S., which prompted him to embark on a new career as an artist touring the country to create “The Greyhound Diaries”.

The Greyhound Diaries” has been warmly received by fans and critics alike in the many different forms it has taken since Doug Levitt embarked upon a six week journey by Greyhound Bus in 2004; Levitt found such richness to discuss in “The Greyhound Diaries” that he could not end his artistic journey after six weeks and continued his epic ride across the U.S. through 2012. After more than 80,000 miles of traveling Doug Levitt has released two EP’s of music and assembled over 10,000 images used in the book detailing his experiences on the road.

Doug Levitt may not seem like a traditional American artist, but he has always felt a calling to travel and felt his artistic choices would play an important role in his life and career. Born into one of the best known political families in Washington D.C., Doug Levitt graduated from Cornell University after moving between the sciences and international politics as a major. After finding success as a news correspondent Levitt stated his own belief that the death of his father prompted him to leave this career and follow his chosen artistic path.

“The Greyhound Diaries” has become something more than even Doug Levitt expected after the former CNN correspondent found himself exploring everyday American life as the 2008 economic slowdown began. Doug Levitt has been described as following in the footsteps of great American artists and social commentators who were found in the early and mid 20th century and created a golden period in the U.S. based arts.

Entrepreneur Sanjay Shah Discusses The Importance Of Autism Rocks

In a recent interview carried on Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio, Solo Capital founder and Autism Rocks CEO Sanjay Shah discusses his life’s work and how success has changed his life for the better.

The podcast, hosted by Eric Dye, invites a number of successful entrepreneurs to sit down and discuss a variety of topics relating to business. The podcast can be heard all over the globe.

Shah, who became a multi-millionaire literally overnight, has a new purpose in life: finding a cure for autism. Several years ago, his youngest son, Nikhil was diagnosed with autism. The diagnosis was life-changing for Shah. “We jumped on top of this as soon as possible and found the best therapists and specialists in the world.”

Shah says he knows not everyone has the money to afford the therapies that his son has. So, in an effort to help other children around the globe, he founded Autism Rocks in 2011 to raise money for awareness and research.

Autism Rocks is a festival that brings in musical entertainers every year such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Drake and REM to help raise money. It also gives families the opportunity to network with other families who have children with this neurological disorder.

“According to the latest statistics, 1 in every 68 children develop autism,” said Shah. “I am using every dollar of Autism Rocks for research, and hopefully, someday, there will be a cure.”

When Shah speaks of his other life as a businessman, he says it was never his intent to become an investor. He actually went to school to become a doctor, when he decided he wanted career change. He began working for a brokerage firm in London. Within five years, he had his own hedge fund company, Solo Capital. The company has grown into one of the largest investment banks in the UK.

Today, his company is worth an estimated $350 million. Shah is in semi-retirement to tend to the needs of Nikhil. “I am thankful that my wealth has given me the opportunity to spend time with my son,” said Shah. “He is my first priority.”
