My Newest Business Card

New Business Card

New Business Card

I have my hands in so many projects, I never know what to put on these things. I”m pretty sure this is the dilemma of most modern day entrepreneurs – too many plates to spin, not enough room to spin them. I tried to use Occum”s razor to pair down what I do, cut out most of the businesses that were still ideas and not actually producing anything yet. I also cut out anything I identified myself with that I haven”t currently done in over a year (thus the title Life Coach fell away) I thought Filmmaker was a given, but then… Risktaker and Cakebaker? While both are true, they are total cop-outs, I put them there because they rhymed with filmmaker. Business Cards are just too small these days to convey all that I am doing, although I don”t seem to have any problem crowding in the nonsense.  Does this happen to you too?

(also – does your wordpress theme continuously add extra apostrophes”””””” when you update a post too?)

About

What I’ve done before:

I’ve had a lot of identities over the years: A marketer, a mother, a barista, a model, a fashionista, an entrepreneur, a creatives coach, a cocktail waitress, a truck driver, a college dropout, a mensa member, a filmmaker, a business owner, a coder, an event organizer, a project manager, a C Suite, and a cheerleader for women in tech. More generally I’m an interested participant in life, living, and learning everything I can.

What I’m Doing Now:

Currently, I’m building a women’s cannabis wellness community, Ellementa, where I am the COO/CTO.

I’m making a documentary film about computer pioneer and badass woman Grace Hopper.

I’m on the board of Chicago community resource NFP mRelief.


A few years ago:

I worked as the COO to take this company: Everpurse from a kickstarter darling to a internationally recognized fashion/tech company. Though I hung up my spurs, I’m still on the board.

I headed the coding org  Chicago Women Developers to make it a great place for ANYONE in and interested in programming to be welcome and thrive. It still exists and is run by some great organizers, you should check it out.

I was a former boardmember at the awesome NFP Hollaback.org

I CoChaired for the Affinity Alliance of NCWIT.

I organized a conference designed to help women pitch VCs, the media, and customers effectively: Pitch Conference.


What I Plan on Doing in The Future:

I value opportunity much more than I value plans. If you have an opportunity you want to discuss with me, send me a tweet.
