STTA: Saying “I appreciate you” more

I went to Atlanta this past weekend, for the Create + Cultivate conference and got back to LA early on Sunday. The trip was short (about 24 hours) but much needed, as it’s always nice to get out of LA. That time zone difference, weather change, switch in “vibe” always jogs my mind a little bit and shakes some perspective into my head. One of my…

The kind of Magic I believe in

Not sure if you saw the Cinderella Live Action movie that came out in 2015, but there’s this quote that still plays in my head to this day. Cinderella’s mother says it to her before she passes: “I want to tell you a secret that will see you through all the trials that life can offer. Have courage, and be kind. Ella, you have more kindness in your…

What I need in a relationship

I’ve spent a loooot of time thinking about what matters most to me since I’ve moved from New York to Los Angeles. Of course, I did most of this thinking even before I moved, but it’s really now that I’ve been able to “start again” (especially after college) and build a new and stronger foundation. It’s what I expected and counted on to happen with the…

My heart space is “for rent”

In our daily life, we maintain different kinds of space. Calendar space, head (mental) space, physical space and even computer space…. but perhaps the most overlooked kind of space is heart space. Kind of ironic, seeing as how heart space is the one that affects us so personally and our motivation (therefore efficiency) the most. Heart space also happens to be the kind of space…

STTA-Quarter Life reflections

I’m finally 25 after what seems like an eternity.  Here is a video of what I’ve learned so far and what continues to drive me moving forward. I’ve learned and grown so much in the short time since graduation and I can’t imagine what I’ll continue to discover in the year(s) ahead. Hope you liked the video! This video is dedicated to my rare specimen,…

Things I learn from my Rare Specimen (that apply in business and life)

Turns out that my heart was damaged in all sorts of ways when I left New York. Needless to say, moving to LA was a good restart for me. LA is where I met my rare specimen- someone who seems too good to be real, but indeed exists. (more of my rare specimen dictionary here) Yes, we’re long distance, but ever since he entered my…

Something every 20 something should be doing

Struggling. Yep. Struggling. It’s hard because in our 20’s especially, we millennials (or at least I) feel the pressure to “have it all together”, in business and life, for our peers after graduation but the truth is, you’re not supposed to have it all together. Your twenties is about you trying and failing and figuring out what is right for you though trial and error….

It’s not the journey or the destination…

With any life change, transition or awe inspiring moment, cliche sounding quotes and sayings are sure to follow. Some fitting examples of inspiration guiding my relocation to LA from NYC: There are a million sayings that can apply to this LA adventure of mine… One quote in particular that has really struck me is: Not because it’s the most relevant, but because I actually kind of…

I’m going to Los Angeles

I never thought I would be saying this, but I submitted my notice at work a few weeks ago, bought a flight shortly thereafter, am finishing up the work week and will be flying out to LA Saturday morning to explore opportunities out there.

When did it all change for you?

Sometimes it’s as if streetart is speaking to me. Take this photo for example. I took it while wandering the streets of the Arts District in Los Angeles (when I was there in April). I found it interesting at the time but I didn’t think too much of it until I came back to NY from LA. As I slowly phased out of vacation mode…. everything seemed to make sense….
