While weekends vary widely on my end, expect to see me at a hackathon during most of them (if you happen to be in New York). Integrating work, life, and play has been my modus operandi as a situational entrepreneur (one for whom joining a founding team is the only viable option).

I know that the key to being confident in yourself is believing in yourself but it's easier said than done. How can I achieve this?
Hi Alice, I think this is something all of us struggle with--even the most confident among us. It doesn't take much to have a bad day. And a bad day can really derail your confidence and self esteem. For me, I start by remembering who I am, and my purpose....and not confusing it with who I think I'm supposed to be....and I also try to remember that even when I might not feel particularly lovable, I am, in fact, loved....I refuse to allow myself to be defined by achievements or failings, by the size of my pocket book or any other superficial factor, because I know that all of those things are external to me, and easily taken away. And I just choose to believe....to know that I am capable....and have something to offer. Some days you have to act, you just have to pretend until you snap into your confident self....some days, it helps to remember all of the different things you achieved, especially when you weren't trying so hard or maybe felt less pressure....to remember that you've been there, done that, and that you can do it again....that you always land on your feet, even if initially it feels like you're falling on your face....and finally, I think it also helps to remember that even when you might feel a little alone, like you're the only person who has ever experienced a particular situation, that you're not alone; that there are thousands of women across time and history who've felt and experienced the same emotions, confusion, difficulties....there is a power that comes in realizing how connected we are, and understanding that the situations we face that blow or undermine our confidence have been experienced by others....so try also to focus on connectedness, connecting with yourself, but also a virtual connection with others. And give yourself a break every now and then....but don't stop trying. I hope you're having a wonderful summer, stay in touch!

Where do you find inspiration for story ideas?
I follow up on a lot of pitches, try a lot of products, shop small beauty boutiques, talk to my friends about types of things they’re using at the moment. Getting excited about something I’ve never seen before, that’s the best feeling.

I started a free service where I handle the social media of companies! How can I ask the companies to get compensated for it after summer?
The most compelling thing for a business owner is to see their numbers improving as a result of a decision they’ve made. So show them that trying your service was a valuable decision. You can demonstrate this in two parts: First, by showing your success, and second, by proving that you achieved that success in a strategic way. 1) Show your success How are you measuring success? Here are a few numbers to show them: - Show them how many new social media followers they have gained through your engagement – those are potential – or actual - customers. Create a chart that shows their following on the first day of your engagement, and how it has grown month-over-month. - Add up the number of impressions across various social media platforms. Services like Sprout Social can automate this for you. - Create a document with highlighted quotes from the most engaged community members. Show your client how you have managed to stir up responses from their followers. An anecdote is a compelling complement to the data you’re presenting. Make sure you include the avatar, handle, name, and quote – including all of this information makes it feel tangible. 2) Prove that you were strategic I would also highlight your strategy. It’s great that you’ve achieved strong social media impact, but how did you go about it? If you want them to pay for your services, you have to demonstrate that you have a comparative advantage and expertise that is worth their money and not easy to replicate. A few questions to answer in this section: - What has been your objective? (i.e. is it to gain followers, to drive traffic to a specific part of the site, to deepen engagement with existing followers, to get customer feedback on a product?) - How are you determining which social media platforms to use, when to use them, and what type of content to post? - What are some of your most interesting findings? (e.g., what have been some of your most successful posts?) How did you use those findings to adapt your approach? As Levo’s CEO, Caroline Ghosn, is fond of saying, “Show, don’t tell.” Pull these numbers into a few compelling charts (or at least an organized table), display exciting engagement from their customers, and open up your thought process to prove that they would be silly to miss out on the opportunity to engage you further. Finally, I would conclude by enticing them with what could be next. What should their social media growth goals be for the next 6 months? You can help them get there. You already know the brand, you have proven results, and investing in you has a much better ROI than traditional marketing channels.

How crucial is grad school for someone wanting to be successful in the magazine business?
Kelsey, I never heard anyone say that grad school was key for a career in magazines. For instance, a masters in journalism just wasn't' necessary during most of my tenure in magazines. But I've been out of the game for a bit so you should ask around. What I think could really be worthwhile is any program that helps you understand digital or social media (might be a masters but could also just be a series of courses). That kind of program could help you become poised to be a content creator and provider across platforms--and that's the future in media. Be adept at many platforms!

Please convey what qualities do studios look for in an international b school candidate seeking a Marketing or Business development role?
Hi Ankit - Unfortunately I do not work in the Studio side of the business so can't offer prescriptive advice on that end. Experience (academic and experiential) in the field (marketing, business development or both) and industry (studio specific) are generally the items hiring managers look for when selecting someone in these areas. I recommend you read the job descriptions carefully as they indicate what skills, capabilities and background are being sought. Hope this is helpful. Daisy

I used to use paper - there is something so nice about crossing things out. But I ended up having SO MUCH on my to-do list, that paper wasn't working. I hated the messy lists, and it wasn't convenient to carry a notebook. I've been using Asana for about 6 months and I love it. The project, task and sub-task concept is awesome for feeling like you made headway on something. Three tips I've learned: 1) Set up everything in one workspace if you want to see it all on one calendar. 2) Add EVERYTHING. Definitely take the Getting Things Done approach and get it all in there. Be sure to assign tasks to yourself (if you want to use the team functions) and add deadlines. 3) Build a habit to check it every morning and just keep the tab open.
