The Carrington Connection: July 2017

The O'Donnell's
Tom and Karen O'Donnell are residents of Coppell, TX. They are successful serial entrepreneurs, having built multimillion dollar businesses in the Healthcare and Life Science industries. Their newest company, Crazy Ventures, is helping entrepreneurs connect with their passions and live with hope and freedom. In 2016, Tom became a Professional Entrepreneur Operating System (EOS) Implementer to help others escape the shackles of business ownership and experience more joy in running their businesses.

The O'Donnells have two sons, Thomas and Samuel, who enjoy swimming, reading, Boy Scouts, and video games. Each year they spend time living internationally in a Central or South American country. In Karen's words, "I was born in El Salvador and I want my boys to experience the cultures of these countries, not just the resorts. Living as temporary residents, not tourists, gives them real insights into life around the world." As a family, they enjoy traveling, camping, bike riding, hiking and running races. Tom and Karen consider themselves to be daredevils having gone on crazy adventures like skydiving, paragliding, whitewater rafting, & scuba diving. They enjoy obstacle races like the tough mudder and have completed many races anywhere from a 5k to marathons. They have also been known to chase down tornados in east Texas.

Tom and Karen are driven, fun, passionate about their family, and give back to the community. These qualities make them a great fit for The Carrington Family Office. Ultimately, Carrington helps Tom and Karen focus their time, talents, and treasure on achieving the things in life that are important to them.

Einstein and the Russian Spy?

Einstein came to the US in 1933 after his home was raided by Nazi thugs shortly after Hitler came to power.  It is reported that his Visa was held up by the FBI due to J. Edgar Hoover's suspicions that Albert was a communist sympathizer.  The Visa was eventually granted and he subsequently joined the faculty at Princeton in 1933.  He was 54.
 
After his wife died in 1936, he met a new woman. 1942, the University commissioned the Russian sculptor, and Albert fell for his wife Margarita Konenkova.  The relationship was discovered when some researchers came upon a trove of love letters that Einstein wrote to Margarita after they broke up and she had returned to Moscow.
