Nothing makes me happier than helping other women succeed (and wearing flats).

Powerful night at Luminary's Women of Impact Pitch Competition with Berlin Cameron and Marie Claire. The competition celebrated women-founded brands that use their products or services to help build community. Congratulations to Mommy Matters, who won over $75K in funding and services!

And speaking of women-founded brands, head to CNBC for my latest article, where I delve into how I built - and fund - my social media business.

By now, you've probably figured out that I go to a lot of events.

Sometimes, for work (hello conference season!) - and sometimes, for fun (hi wedding season)! But what you might not know is that for the last 6 months - I've been obsessed with using Rent the Runway.

RTR is perfect for work events, weddings, engagement parties - and also for those with commitment issues - because with RTR Unlimited, you can rent 4 looks and swap them at any time!

That includes this stunning number from VONE that I wore to a friend's Israel wedding a few weeks back.

Celebrating 10 Years in Business with GoDaddy

I’ve hosted my company email through GoDaddy since I launched my business more than 10 years ago - so you can imagine how excited I was to be invited to celebrate my business’ 10-year-anniversary (!) on GoDaddy’s School of Hustle.

Host Shannon Traux interviewed me how I started and grew my business, what the top social media trends are today - and my top entrepreneurial tips for success.

Most importantly, thank you to School of Hustle for introducing me to my new favorite micro-influencer, Noodle.

Own It! Women Entrepreneur's Conference

Social media has transformed the way we interact with customers - and how customers engage with us.

Last week I visited SUNY Ulster to speak with 150+ small business owners at the Own It! Entrepreneurial Women’s Conference about how to use social media to create brand loyalty - from creating quality content to engaging with influencers (something I never expected to call myself)!

Head to Hudson Valley Mag to read more about the conference - and see what I had to say about social media, freelancing and how to “own it” when it comes down to business.

About Late Night

A huge shout-out to the company who made my advance screening of Late Night possible with over 200 women in attendance - MMLaFleur, a women-owned, women-run clothing brand with a gorgeous NYC showroom (that also makes my lovely dress). 

Before the screening, I spoke with Ladders about how to improve the sometimes arduous relationship between boss and employee. Read my tips here - and also find out what we can learn about workplace behaviors from the movie.

Finally, thank you to everyone who came out to the see the film - we’ll catch you next time!

Pro tip when applying for a job: If it doesn't scare you a little, it's probably not the right job.

Linkedin has more than 20 million job postings, but did you know that I got my first-ever job via Linkedin?

I loved sharing my story during Small Business Week about how I got hired at Rolling Stone and now use Linkedin to hire talent for my own business.

And speaking of jobs, head to Forbes for my latest article about how to decide whether or not you should be friends with your boss on social media.
