Women Back to Work co-founder Sonu Ratra knows what it’s like to try to return from a career break. In a word, she called it “frustrating.”

Sixteen years ago, the Los Altos resident left a lucrative job to spend time with her young daughter. When she wanted to return after a couple of years, she was met with closed doors.

It's better to be a good – rather than a great – investor

Cliff Asness, co-founder of AQR Capital Management, once stated on Bloomberg Television, “I used to think being great at investing long-term was about genius. Genius is still good, but more and more, I think it’s about doing something reasonable, that makes sense, and then sticking to it with incredible fortitude through the tough times.”

In other words, you’d be better off long term by following a consistent, well-diversified investment strategy, regardless of what the markets are doing.

Real estate developer and urban planner Kelly Snider is now leading Los Altos Community Investments, formerly known as Passerelle Investment Co., in its efforts to enhance downtown Los Altos through leasing storefronts to varied businesses that offer shopping and dining options.

The private real estate holding company known for its involvement in Los Altos projects and events now operates under a new name with a renewed direction.

Los Altos Community Investments, the former Passerelle Investment Co., will continue working with approximately 15 downtown retail tenants and their customers to keep Los Altos “unique, vibrant and family-friendly,” according to a press release issued last week by new managing director Kelly Snider.
