THE VASSEGHI FAMILY STORY Love, Luck & a 175 Million-to-1 Jackpot

blog Nov 04, 2010

This week I’m going to do something a little bit different on my blog. My good friend and collaborator Jay Lavender wrote an amazing piece about my family.

Jay and I met through Dean Ellis at USC, who was a professor of marketing when I went there. I expressed to Dean Ellis that I wanted to write a book and ten years ago next month he introduced me to Jay. Jay is an accomplished screenwriter who wrote the 2006 movie The Break-up with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn.

So what happened to my family this summer? My mom actually won the California Lottery. It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the last few months. My friend Jay wanted to launch a company called ""> to tell stories through different media. When I told him about my Mom, he called his friend and said, I guess it’s time to launch the website. Last week he did it with an amazing story of perseverance about my family for you to enjoy and share with your family and friends. I will end this post right now because I don't want to give away anything more about the story!

Please read it and share it “ I've told you you a lot about myself and am so happy to now be able to share my family's point-of-view as well so you can see how my Mom, Dad and sister Sanaz have inspired me! Enjoy!
