Panel Discussions NYC


Mindful Connections

On December 7th, the first Mindful Connections event was held at the beautiful restaurant Mandolino located in Union Square.  We were happy to join as one of the panelists, sharing the space with the Jamie Galvis founder of Styling Your Space and Alejandra Chaparro founder of 17entertainment.

It was a great event were we talked about how to live a sustainable and mindful life, and we share our experiences on creating a business doing what we love. We also learned the stories from so many hardworking women in NYC that are building and creating their future.
