CASE STUDY: Producing New York's Small Business Awards

Earlier this week NYER announced the 2013 finalists for the Small Business Awards - the only program that recognizes entrepreneurs and business owners in the New York and tri-state area.

When I was Marketing Manager at NYER, the 2012 Small Business Awards was one of my first big projects, and I really was thrown in the deep end, joining just 2 months before the gala awards ceremony! The case study summarizes my involvement in this fantastic program.

For a taste of the energy and comraderie that fills the room of the gala award ceremony, take a squiz at this highlights reel from the event I produced on October 10 2012, in Manhattan, which is referred to by many as "the networking event of the year".

Yoga For The Senses

I've done yoga off and on for a few years now in a variety of places and spaces. Gyms, studios, smelly heated rooms, with carpet, with wooden floors, the rustic, then glam, the simple and in cities like Sydney, Byron Bay and New York. One thing I had never done, until recently was yoga in the outdoors. And not just any patch of grass, mind you. In New York's Central Park.

New York, or....

After living in New York for over one year, I often wonder when and if I will ever leave. Tonight I watched the first episode of the TV series Felicity on Netflix and this quote by Scott Foley's character Noel Crane made me smile.

Stay in New York, or perish.



My First: Juice Cleanse, Day 3

My Liquiteria 'Beets Me' juice, Tupperware water bottle and Poppin notebook and pen on my office desk.

Apologies for the delay in getting this post up - Thursday was was the final day of my 3-day juice cleanse and I'm playing a little catch up!

That morning I headed down to Liquiteria to get my last batch of juice and drank away throughout the day.

My First: Juice Cleanse, Day 2

Day 2 group of juices from Liquiteria for my juice cleanse.

Thanks for joining me as I work my way through my first ever juice cleanse! If you missed it, catch up on Day 1.

I woke up on Day 2, feeling not so good. I had a great sleep, but felt like I was coming down with something - sore throat, blocked nose and cough. Could this be all of the toxins leaving my body?

My First: Juice Cleanse, Day 1


Liquiteria on 11th and 2nd Ave in New York.


Mr. J was kind enough to buy me a 3-day juice cleanse as a pressie. I think he was trying to tell me to eat more fruits and veggies and although I put off doing it for 2 months, I have decided to bite the bullet and drink the juice!

Yesterday I went down to Liquiteria in the East Village to pick up the juices for my 3-day Level One Explore and Nourish juice cleanse. The great thing about this cleanse, is that it's all bottled up and ready for me to drink. No need to spend any time shopping for ingrediants, cleaning, washing and prepping, or actual juicing. When I am hungry, I just pop open a bottle and slurp away!
