November 10th, 2015

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #AmericanMakers #CollectiveBias #PrintsToLiveBy  Timing. It’s EVERYTHING. There are countless articles detailing what it really takes to monetize a blog – even a small one like mine. It’s a lot. I have never worked harder on a job – any job […]

My dad worked in advertising in midtown and I loved walking around the neighborhood that comprised Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Saks Fifth Avenue. Back then there was no Soho.
