Me and Master Blogger @prettystems have a meeting of the minds and hearts and souls once a week, and usually there is cake involved.
All entrepreneurs should have this kind of support system. All people in general, actually. LP, I don’t know what I would do sin ti! <3
Date night @amaelyluv 👭🍰☕️ #kiralldayerrday #berrycakeofmydreams #datenight #rosesfromeurope #lp4lyfe #instafood #instagood (at Urth Caffé)
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.

You don’t have to be stuck at that desk all summer. Here’s how Bianca Forzano left her office and ended up with a thriving company that she operates from the beach.
As Forzano became more involved in the kite surfing scene in Cabarete through a local nonprofit called Kite Boarding for Girls, she realized that there was not a good sports bikini on the market. In short, when trying to kite surf in a regular bikini, there was a fair chance it would fall off.
This was the inspiration for Bianca Bikinis, a range of hand-made sports bikinis, which sell for about $100. … Forzano’s story is a valuable reminder that it is possible to escape from a job that is not making you happy—even if the exact escape plan is not entirely figured out. Here are some of the things Forzano did to make sure her escape was a success:
Plus: How Apple, Facebook, Google, and more tech-world heavyweights describe their design jobs.
Design is a rather broad and vague term. When someone says “I’m a designer,” it is not immediately clear what they actually do day to day. There are a number of different responsibilities encompassed by the umbrella term designer.
Design-related roles exist in a range of areas from industrial design (cars, furniture) to print (magazines, other publications) to tech (websites, mobile apps). With the relatively recent influx of tech companies focused on creating interfaces for screens, many new design roles have emerged. Job titles like UX or UI designer are confusing to the uninitiated and unfamiliar even to designers who come from other industries.
Let’s attempt to distill what each of these titles really mean within the context of the tech industry.
You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars.
