Women’s only groups?

A while ago a few entrepreneurial women and I decided to start a monthly Meetup for like minded ladies. Over the months, the Meetup has become fairly successful, drawing an array of fascinating and very successful women out of the woodwork, with the promise of worts and all stories about ourselves, by ourselves. The question […]

We launch LittleBlackFrock!

(Slightly delayed announcement) LittleBlackFrock has been the cause of many a late day to work in the past few weeks… It’s the answer to many issues I (and others??) have to buying clothes.

Michele is a true inspiration (just read the articles to see what she gets up to!) and I love the concept of a website that helps the little guy […]

Moneyscope: Standing out from the Crowd

One of my favorite customers just sent me the latest review of Moneyscope – a Basecamp style approach to financial planning, that enables financial planners to quickly produce attractive, simple and understandable reports for their clients… As opposed to the typical, hugely complex modeling systems that result in reports no one really understands. I love […]
