New York, New York May 10 2010

May is a great time to head to the city. The weather was perfect last week- dry, sunny. Here's the May sky at Lexington around 30th Street.

Was in NYC for a networking event called "Rock the World" sponsored by the on-line, woman's entrepreneur group called Savor the Success, with my RI associate, Joan M. from Cicione Studios.

May 5th: Lisa Price, Poppy King and Taryn Rose; the experienced business women who spoke in the morning, were a great inspiration; each one with a "in the beginning" or " in my garage" story to relay.

The real-life interactions between on-line networkers was no less than fascinating. Things got REAL exciting, in the afternoon, when Michael Gerber, author of the E-Myth, generously spoke about his long life experiences, slowly yanking off the audience's business-blinders; blinders which we "wear" tightly wrapped around our cluttered, little heads, in order to bring us back to the here and now of REALity... Mr. Gerber is a very present, grounded individual indeed. Mid-May: Back to NYC for the Stationery Show at the Jacob Javits Center-will take photos if they allow it! DONT FORGET TO SAVE THE DATE for our Paper & Fabric trunk show at 133 W. 25th Street (btw 6&7th above the Quilt Shop). Luscious paper goods plus a yummy salad of fabrics and cute tees for sale from 10:30am -5pm, Thursday May 20th- wow! that's already next week!
