New Spark Labs in Bryant Park Just Opened

by on November 10th, 2016

spark-signThe rate of start-ups and people who work from home increases annually as more new technology becomes available. Most start-ups I have consulted for and with my own business there are times when a conference room is needed. For small business owners, start-ups and those who work from home that is a bit of a challenge since they only need a conference room every now and then. Currently in Austin I have seen how quickly co-working communities and work spaces are needed given we are in a technology boom.

Today, Spark Labs announced the opening of a second location in the heart of NYC’s “Silicon Alley” and the backing of UMW Holdings, a Malaysian Corporation with a $3.5B revenue in 2015. For those who aren’t familiar with Spark Labs they are one of NY’s fastest growing co-working communities. Spark Labs brand new space, opened on November 1st, is 20,000-square-feet, comprising an entire floor at 25 W. 39 St. in Bryant Park.

Celebrate Women’s History Month with Fiverr

by on February 29th, 2016

womens-history-monthHAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!

Doesn’t it seem like every day or month, now honors a different group of people or cause – check google.com to see their latest creative expression of these things. I’m not mad about it – I love ‘celebrate your favorite ice cream day’ or ‘free pancake day’ but March is a little more important than that. March is the month to celebrate Women’s History Month. Valentine’s Day existing – makes every other day feasible so join me in celebrating the accomplishments of many extraordinary, yet often forgotten, women.

Women’s History Month runs from March 1st to March 31st and thankfully, I am not the only one that believes they are worth honoring, Fiverr also agrees women are worth showcasing and they’re planning on doing so March 3rd in New York City. For the first time ever (please correct me if I’m wrong), Fiverr is hosting an evening of celebration – a celebration for women in NYC – women that are artists and entrepreneurs. If you are interested in attending, check out their eventbrite . Please use ‘CUTEGEEK’ as the promo code to attend at a 50% discount. #winning

Women are a ’cause’ worth acknowledging and praising – a very worthy cause and Fiverr recognizes this and is hosting an incredible event to honor them. We (women) are expected to do so much, in addition to keeping mankind ‘alive’,so lets just kick back and enjoy being women. We’re expected to be pretty, kind, compassionate, intelligent, badasses…all the while earning a fraction of what their male counterparts earn – okay…I’ll end my rant there. Let’s pick the many hats we’re supposed to wear, and wear them proudly. On March 3rd, I’ll be wearing my MBA grad, Latina from NYC, 1st generation, coolest aunt, most energetic friend, and super geeky hat.

I can’t wait to meet ya’ll – please join me in supporting Fiverr and the many women worth honoring in our lives. I’ll be wearing red lipstick <3

***Fiverr is a service that allows people to get things done – with the help of a community of doers. Need a video edited in HD? Find it on Fiverr. Want a cool logo? Find it on Fiverr. Want a portrait of you as a cartoon? Find it on Fiverr. If you’d like to sign up to use Fiverr’s services (please do) and use ‘CUTEGEEK’ as a promo code. It’ll give you 20% off your order. I’ll be posting about my experience using Fiverr soon, so look out for that posting.

Fun with the Fiat 500

by on January 27th, 2012

This week I was given a Fiat. A Fiat 500. I went back into the rental office and asked if there was anything else.

It was way too small for me. My body started aching from the thought of having my knees at my chin as I drove home…and even though I begged for anything else, and even offered to pay extra for anything else – all they had was a Crown Royale. So I J-Lo-ed my behind home…

And fell in love with this little beauty of a car. Watch the video to check out my thoughts.
