Thinking Outside The Box

Posted on July 24, 2019 at 5:05 PM

I believe in "thinking outside the box" especially when helping a business thrive and be as unique as possible.  How can a dance studio shine and be more successful than the dozens of other dance studios in the same area?  or how can a theatre thrive in a suburbs when NYC is only an hour away? Always think about the experience that you want your customer to remember and what would make it memorable? Whether it's a 30 minute experience or a few hours, every minute counts!

Your Strengths & Weaknesses

Posted on April 30, 2019 at 12:30 AM

When I see a restaurant or a store close, it makes me very sad that these owners could not stay in businesses.  A sense of anger also comes along because he or she was perhaps stubborn in their ways, did not see the full picture and their business plan was not fully developed prior to opening their dream.  We all know that it takes a lot of money to open a business, small or large.  However, before starting your new career adventure think about your strengths and weaknesses....

Posted on April 9, 2019 at 12:10 AM

Do you ever come home from your family vacation and feel "I need a vacation after this one"?

From planning to traveling to finally landing and then all the chaos that may occur during your vacation... why is that necessary?

Over the years, my husband and I look for family vacations that truly feel like a vacation.  We still spend a lot of time as a family, but also cherish those moments of quality time just the two of us while the children are busy with supervised activities....

There is no "I" in team

Posted on February 10, 2019 at 5:10 PM

Life is like a roller coaster but so is your business... sometimes.  Make sure you always stay positive, energized and appreciate all the people surrounding you.  From family to your collegues, there is no "I" in team.  All the individuals in your "team" are special, important and bring something amazing to the table. Make sure you always appreciate their feedback and opinion... even if you disagree.

Being Thankful is something that we don't always think about because we are so focused about our chaotic lives.  From raising a family of young ones to a hectic work schedule (or both) or perhaps trying to achieve perfection. At the end of the day, we should just be thankful for a healthy and loving family, having a warm and safe home and being there for friends, family and neighbors in time of need. It's not about the great deals on Black Friday or about stuffing ourselfes silly at the ...

Finding Your Passion and Making a Difference

Posted on October 15, 2018 at 2:25 PM

How often do we hear "making a difference" but do not know how or when you will actually make it happen? I personally find it super simple and that many organizations are happy with whatever time you can give to their mission. From making holiday cards to a nursing home, wrapping a few gifts  for children with life-threatening illnesses or perhaps even just recycling your stuff.  From the environment to indviduals, you can make a difference, not to mention feel great once you are do...

Fashion vs. Function?

Posted on May 22, 2018 at 10:35 AM

Do you ever wonder what's more important, fashion or function?  I think it should always be both, otherwise you may look fabulous but be extremely uncomfortable (or feel way too comfortable but look like a fashion disaster).  The following are my top 5 must haves for the summer:

Top to bottom: Packable Floppy Hat by Nine West, Kiss Lock Box Clutch by MALIBU SKYE, Wander Cargo Pants by Athleta, Wedge Sandal by b.o.c

Summer 2017

Posted on July 7, 2017 at 11:35 AM

I was in Vermont with my family for 1 week and completely detached myself from the "outside world."No phone, no internet, no television, no news, no noise.  It was pure heaven just to be with family, friends, nature's beauty, music and summer fun.  I highly recommend to do this, you will see what an impact it will do to your mind and body.  If you do not have a week, simply do this for an hour or two (but have your phone handy for emergency in case your kids or somebody needs t...

Amour, Amore, Liebe, Ahava

Posted on February 13, 2017 at 4:15 PM

Love is universal, love is special, love brings happiness, warmth and beauty. Love should not only be expressed on Valentine's Day. Ditch the flowers, the chocolates, the fancy gifts and just do something extra special to those you love.
