Kim, thank you for entertaining us with your stories and for generously sharing your many savvy business tips!
On May 9 we continue our series with Nadia Ackerman, another Australian sensation who has more than her fair share of stories to tell about 'making it in New York'! Nadia will both entertain you with her colorful tales of life in the entertainment business and inspire you with her savvy business approach that has seen her thrive in this great city.
Nadia arrived in New York City in the winter of 1998. Stepping off an Amtrak train from Toronto with only a suitcase and a bunch of BIG ideas and dreams.

She just stepped off the stage at Carnegie Hall where she performed for the 5th time at Sting and Trudie Styler's Rainforest Benefit with James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel, Meryl Streep and Bill Clinton and many more major celebrities. Her second album "The Ocean Master" was released into stores March 6th on her new major independent label signing with "Spectra Records".
