My favorite thing by far about the audio social network Clubhouse has been the quality of friendships I’ve made and in such a rapid period of time. It wows me. They’re all so genuine. There’s not enough space in a tweet to @ mention all the beautiful humans in my life now, thanks to this incredible app. A couple weeks ago I became the icon of Clubhouse and I was blown away. Here’s audio of my genuine reaction when I found out.
When I was first asked if I’d like to be the icon I hesitated. I have always…
We think what matters is likes & followers. Nope. Here’s what matters, this is why I give everything I have to make the Women in Tech podcast possible. Proud of you Laura Galiyeva for speaking in English for the FIRST TIME on stage yesterday at Seedstars! 🎥 IG denarek
I think the currency of money just doesn’t suit me. I choose to continue believing in the currency of love. The currency of value. Of creating impact. Every time I think of money I feel my chest become restricted with anxiousness and nerves. I become short of breath. I fixate on words like “convince” or “need to get”. Panic commences and the fluidity in my smile and energy stop as my muscles tighten. But when I think about being kind, when I focus on gratitude… when I invest my energy into ease, that’s when I feel light hearted, playful, whimsical…
How to talk to someone depressed…
Don’t tell them how to fix their life.
DO listen and listen without judgement.
Don’t ask them if they’re “better” every time you contact them.
DO ask if there is anything you can do to be supportive.
Don’t be forceful about them spending time with you.
DO offer them time in person without them having to commit to plans.
Don’t assume you understand what they’re going through.
DO try to be empathic to their struggle.
Don’t tell them to just get over it and move on.
DO think of it as a cold they can’t shake that has to run through their body and fade in it’s own time.
Don’t vanish from their lives when they are down.
DO remind them they are not a burden and you love them unconditionally.
I remember when I dived in deep into the life of an entrepreneur resisting engaging with any guy I found attractive. I didn’t want to be distracted from building a powerful long lasting tech company. I would go years with little to no action in my life. Just being real. I was taken over by drive and determination to create a strong team, prove a business model, be a dynamic business partner, and work to the point my eyes forced themselves shut. Where did this leave me multiple startups later — single.
#GIRLBOSS written by Sophia Amoruso is a no BS straight up business/self help/memoir about how a dumpster diving chic girl into vintage grew a multi million dollar fashion brand. It channels your inner boss and boosts confidence in oneself.

Kissmetrics says, “Snapchat isn’t for everyone.” That it’s most active age demographic are young adults between 18–24 so… “If you’re a B2B marketer targeting high-level decision makers at corporations then Snapchat isn’t your best bet.” I don’t agree necessarily. Just last week Alex Moazed published an article in Inc Magazine titled “Why Snapchat Is the New LinkedIn for Tech Startups”. Here’s my take on snapchat for businesses targeting grownups over the age of 25…
It’s like on demand reality TV that pierces into anyone’s personal life aka ‘story’ and vanishes within 24 hours. Kinda like how back in the day…
While I was building my 2nd company, an action sports media network, is when I discovered Zappos. They are a now billion dollar commerce site acquired by Amazon in 2009. Back in about 2004 they were reported to have the fastest loading code for any shopping site and that’s when I stumbled upon what was to become a business cultural phenomon. Just like you probably do now, I looked up to Zappos on how to build a smart company. Zappos became known for it’s company culture. I was lucky enough to be selected for the Zappos Insights business beta program…
