Things are WILD right now! This past weekend I participated in Startup Weekend Philadelphia and had the best time of my life! Short story: I had an idea for an app, pitched it, formed the most incredible team ever who made the thing in a weekend, and took 2nd place! Woot! FYI, it will be launching for realz in a few weeks. :)
In addition to that, I have so many events going on this and next month, that I'm hoping I can make it to the holidays without burning out. But hey, I liked to be busy. One of the things I'm most looking forward to is TEDxPhilly on November 8th (my mom's birthday, holla). I'm making the assumption that most of you are familiar with TED, but if you're not, definitely check out their site. So last year, I went to our local TED event, TEDxPhilly, and it was beyond inspiring! Listening to these motivated, do-gooders discuss their passions was electrifying. And I can't wait to experience it all again! The theme for this year is The City.
And because the TEDxPhilly people are so fantastic and super NICE, they have donated a ticket to the event to give away right here on my blog! Now, I know the majority of you aren't in the Philly area, but if you are, or if you can be on November 8th, then you have the opportunity to win a free registration (normally $100) to the event at the Temple Performing Arts Center.
To enter, and since this is a Philly event, leave a comment telling me "What makes Philly so NICE?" (Don't forget to include your email address.) Travel + Leisure magazine ranked Philly as the 3rd rudest city in America, but I personally think it's pretty awesome! So I want to know what YOU think makes Philly a nice city to live in, work in, or visit.
For me, it's all about the events. You know I like to do as much as possible, and in Philly, there's always something going on. Concerts, lectures, festivals, events like TEDxPhilly. I could do something amazing every day if I wanted to. And I kinda do. :) So get YOUR entries in and I'll draw a random winner next Friday, October 28th. Good luck!
