Cheers to the year

What's on our minds in December...

Creative gifts for creative folks

Being that we work with some of the most inspiring artists, designers, makers, and curators in the business, we come across a lot of crazy cool stuff. So for the holidays, we’ve compiled our favorite finds into a gift guide curated especially for the creative set.

Check it out here: The Creative Business holiday gift guide

WE NYC: Women Entrepreneurs NYC

Starting in 2016, NYC will be launching free business services targeted to female business owners as part of their Women Entrepreneurs New York City initiative. Services will include WE Master Courses in credit building, funding, and leadership; WE Connect Events for networking and skill building; and WE Connect Mentors to provide tailored advice to entrepreneurs.
Visit their website to sign up for updates, become a partner/mentor, and register for their spring events.

Pre- and Post-Holidays

Evite #GiveMeFive

#GiveMeFive Charity Challenge

Want to skip the awkward Secret Santa exchange this year? Encourage friends, colleagues, and teammates to donate to charity in lieu of giving gifts at this year’s holiday party. Evite has created a convenient donation button that you can now attach to any of their online invitations. Simply choose your favorite charity and send the invite. Guests can then securely submit their donations online.
One-Word Resolutions

One-Word Resolutions

In 2016, scrap the lofty resolutions that you probably won’t keep anyway. Instead, take author Gretchen Rubin’s advice and choose just one simple word (or phrase) to be the overarching theme to your year. Some examples: Adventure, Energize, Make, Rest, Finish. Of course, you could always go Gretchen’s route; her theme for 2016 is “Lighten Up.”

Adding it all up...

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
            —Oprah Winfrey

One year ends, another begins. We’ve had such an exciting year, especially with growing our company and expanding our offices in Brooklyn. We feel incredibly lucky to work with such a great group of clients, partners, colleagues, and friends. Here’s to a wonderful holiday season and a great kickoff to 2016!
