Enjoy!

The strange thing about this video is when they talk about her skating career, playing skating music and showing...Sasha's red carpet appearances. What, couldn't find a tape of her performance?

I saw this this morning. It must have been after this clip, but they did show a picture of her in her short program dress from the Torino Olympics. Good for her for going back to school. I thought she looked very pretty.

Thanks for the clarification! Makes more sense now.

I think she did a good job in the interview. Glad she's found something else that she enjoys this much.

Thanks for the video, she looks so gorgeous and she's so smart! Like the new colored skates she's working on. It feels so weird for her to talk finance, I felt like I was watching Neil Cavuto. Congrats to her for going to college, she's such an inspiration.

I think it's an interesting analogy, the stock market and elite competition, the incredible highs and lows. She really is very articulate.

Nice to see her with something she loves. A little surprised that she's friends with Tara -- Tara has pretty much dropped out of sight, and I hadn't realized she was in New York.

Tara and Sasha have been hanging out for a while it seems.

Glad Sasha has found a new path and seems excited about it. The skates look kinda silly and not practical but whatever works.

Thanks for posting that. I think she is onto something with designing skates because there will be skaters who would like something like those. Well done to her. She seems very smart, focussed and obviously has a head for finance (stuff that I just do not understand).

I laughed at pink strollers, designer covers for car seats and finally have caught on that everyone wants to be unique (well, uniquely the same :P). Designer skates will be popular. A lot of skaters would be willing to have their parents pay. Why have ordinary when you can be "special"?

Very cool interview, thanks for the link! Great to see her invested into a new career direction. She intelligent, well-spoken, fast-talking, and aggresive, and I think her financial advice is very sound! I'm sure she will do very well.

Good to see her moving on. Sasha's father is a corporate attorney, I'm sure she gets lots of help and input about business from him and other family connections. Her mother is also a real go getter.
