I’m sitting at 30,000 feet up in the air with Starbucks in hand and lots of momentum. I’m headed to New York City for a few days of inspiration, mingling with fellow paper peeps and good conversation. I couldn’t be more excited to meet new people, hang out with old friends and spend endless hours talking about what I love most in my career – paper and branding! I’ve been to the National Stationery Show a few times before, but never on this side of the business. Instead of walking the floors as part of a buying/creative team, I’ll be standing proud next to Twist Paper. Seriously, I am so proud of the brand that it has become and the amount of supporters we have! It’s growing more every day and I cannot wait to see where it goes in the future.
There is just something about New York that you can’t describe. There is an energy…a buzz…a feeling that you get when your’e there. You just have to LIVE it. My favorite thing to do is to just walk the streets. Block to block, walk with the locals, the corporates, the go-getters, the entrepreneurs. I can just feed off of their motivation and drive to make things happen in their live and career. It is a city full of culture, food, colors, and all walks of live – I just adore it. Stay tuned for updates along the way via Instagram. Cannot wait to share my journey over the next few days!
