He's hosted many luxury events and has put together a roster of the best chefs and mixologists under one roof.

DESTINATION LUXURY INFLUENCER – JOSH LEV’S, AUTHOR & SOCIAL MEDIA GURU.

We’ve asked a number of our influencers what luxury means to them. We’ve received responses ranging from traveling with loved ones to having financial independence to providing for family. Spending time with family and friends is the universal answer we’ve ultimately received. With Father’s Day just passing by, I interviewed Josh Levs, fatherhood activist and author of All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families and Businesses -- And How We Can Fix It Together. We talked about what it means for parents to share responsibility in the household. If spending time with loved ones is many people’s ultimate form of luxury, we want to understand what it means to create a work-life balance to achieve this goal.
