Busy Girl

I've been a little busy.

Film Festival

I'm still burping up popcorn from the San Diego Film Festival that wrapped up last night. I hope to have the taste of butter and salt out of my system by the time my wrap up post goes up. I will give you a preview-slash-recommendation:

Go see 50/50!

Simon is still hot!

In between film screenings, I drove out to the local mountains for a night under the stars with some Wild Boys. YES... I do mean Duran Duran! Check out #DuranLive tweets on Twitter to read how amazing the show was. If you were (and still are) a fan, you HAVE to go see them! Check out the All You Need is Now tour schedule and get to a show in your town!

Going to the Dogs

I wrote about dogs at Aiming Low. There are some cute dogs and some ugly dogs and a video of a cat. I thought it was funny. It's a tongue-in-cheek post about getting a dog, but a couple of people decided to take me too seriously. Hope you enjoy the back-and-forth in the comments.

Finding Fun

I've got a new weekly gig finding fun things for families to do in San Diego. Coincidentally, it's called Family Finds. Family Finds is a daily deal site with a twist. Not only do they have local deals, they also have national deals. You can sign up to get deals and become an affiliate for an opportunity to make a few extra bucks.

And if you're in San Diego, sign up to get my 7 Things to Do in San Diego list.

Coming Soon!

I'm also working behind the scenes launching my new site. It's not ready yet, but here's the grayscale version of our header:

It was designed by a cool chick named Morgan who attended our first Smart & Social Seminar, Smart Start. We're currently developing a workshop series called Smart Labs right now. I hugely underestimated how much time it would take, but I'm enjoying this new phase. It's the journey, right?

I really wish that microchip was already in development.

Moms Share Deals... and Help Other Moms

There's a reason people keep wanting to use the word Mom in marketing: We control the spending.

People talk about it like it's new news, but Moms have always been the target. Soap Operas were created by a soap company to sell soap to bored housewives. In between all the bubble blowing, the moms were treated to a little indulgent drama. Marketing was controlled by men back then. Back in the days when "men were men" (read: a-holes) and women wore pearls and heels to vaccuum the house.

We've come a long way, baby!

Now, women not only control the spending, we are creating the messages and the vehicles with which to generate the much needed revenue for other women in business.

Here are two such Moms:
