Work Hard Fast & Smart...  Can you TEACH  people to  hustle..  so many reach out to me but seem to think life will WAIT for them... 
till they finished the visit to their loved one, finished that  fourth  degree they will never really use, reached their correct weight, accrued the cash they needed or are living in the "right space', or  got their significant other to  approve... 

When the truth is it's NOW or never 

 " If you’re hustling, good shit will happen. Period. What the hustle looks like varies. All I ask for is that you work hard and fast."

Her personal struggle with relaxer induced hair loss inspired the University of Amsterdam graduate to use her IT expertise for social change. Known as the first woman in Holland to build a website, she created going-natural.com, the first social web and networking site for natural hair.

It was not called Graffiti but public art,and that was the first indication that there was an issue. The sharp contrast between the article and the comments- tell a lot about the present undercurrents -
FROM THE COMMENTS "It's disgraceful that you do the developer's p.r. for them. First, your facts wrong -- Frank Gehry did not oversee the whole project. He was used as a trendy prestige element to sell it to the city's power brokers. Gehry was crass and his designs were ridiculed. He once infamously said he looked forward to building a neighborhood where none existed. This came as news to thousands who lived and worked there. Most are now gone, the victims of misused eminent domain. These trite, happy murals and the artists who ignore the project's destructiveness are very much the new Brooklyn. Displacing people, refusing to provide low-income housing per years of promises, and adding to the Brooklyn brand without providing things Brooklynites clamor for are all business as usual for the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project. Shame on you, Katherine Brooks, for being a cog in Forest City's onerous machine."
What goes together better than ice cream, sunshine and neighborhood camaraderie? Ice cream, sunshine, neighborhood camaraderie and public art, that's what. Thanks to Mike Perry -- the illustrator extraordinaire

@Businessinsider NYukCo's StyleCanvas will offer global taining to solve that $9 bil problem . Earlier this year we began testing a module, designing for real figures. With the aim of developing a solution. We've taken what we learned during this event and created a modle for NYukCo's, #StyleCanvas. We will offer global training to solve that $9 bill (Plus sized) problem.

Seriously I wish there were media outlets that INVESTIGATED rather than simply print PRess releases. I'm sure their are otehrs working on this! 
One supermodel is aiming to solve a major problem in fashion.

#Shop2Support NYukCo #Selffund #fashiontech #Startup to helps local designers build global busiensses. New Youk has it's share of Fashion incubators and accelerators, few allow for or cater to the organic cottage industry that actually exist. We chose to start as a pre-stratup lab project so that we can do what we do best... custom design products that fit our consumers needs. In this case our consumers are our design colleagues in less than 3 months we have made significant progress and can stand toe to toe with others well funded projects. However to move forward we require non eguity funding. So we tappedin to what we do best design great product, service sand merchandise and offer it as a pre-sale startup to our network! ... Thanks for your support

Introduction

Bonnie Sandy [+bonniesandy] - is a “B.A.D.A.S.S.E. Creative Industries” advocate and technology adoption consultantpassionate about the art of making, the business of making, the process of making and how technology affects making.  Since 2003, she has focused on designing a template and local economic development model that is not only globally adaptable across cottage-based industrial niches but also easily sustainable, scalable and that has a natural trickle-down impact. 


Born to a computer programming father and a local dressmaking mother, she was certified in Cobol in 1986 but chose to pursue Fashion Design at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.  After successfully testing her incubator program at 4W Circle of Art and Enterprise, the issue of space challenged her to take that program virtual.  Today she focuses on local cottage businesses and utilizes techniques in controlled projects that tests the use of technology and telepresence to impact artisans in Africa, the Caribbean and the United States.   

As a black female Change Manager in the NY Tech circuit since 2006, Sandy is frequently called to conduct seminars, workshops and develop projects around the intersection of creativity, commerce, community and tech, facilitating the transition to Start-up founders, “solo-preneurs” and innovators.
