Happy Father’s Day! I will always be daddy’s little girl. ❤️

I’m so grateful to have attended the first HBS DIALOGUE- an invaluable experience shared w/a few hundred inspiring, accomplished and diverse people (I learned SO much!). ⁣ ⁣ At DIALOGUE, I was pushed WAY beyond my comfort zone and encouraged to have engaging “dialogue” on topics ranging from improving climate change to solving the refugee crisis to building businesses to changing the political system to creating economic possibilities for our grandchildren to fostering rebel talent to having impact on others and so much more... Did I mention I ate pure deliciousness from @chefjoseandres and @andyhusbands 😋 ⁣and I loved meeting them! ⁣ BUT, my greatest and most unexpected takeaway was from the session “What Happens When the Dream Comes True: The Search for Identity” with Professor Thomas J. DeLong. I took pages of notes 📓 from his exceptionally moving talk that led nearly everyone in the audience to weep 😭 (I’m talking Business Leaders, Founders, Economists, Investors, Professors, Bankers, Consultants, not your typically weepy types etc). This simple but powerful takeaway was all about expressing GRATITUDE. His research shows that expressing gratitude leads to greater happiness. It’s so easy to express gratitude today and every day. ⁣ ⁣ Who has had a profound impact on your life and deserves your gratitude? 🙏🏻 ⁣I’m tagging some of the many people I want to thank. ⁣ Pick up the phone and call these people today and thank them.📞 #hbsdialogue #gratitude #awwquoteoftheweek

It was such a treat to be invited to speak at @inturn.hq’s Women in Tech Industry night at @swervefitness. I was inspired by the diverse women in the audience, their career paths in tech, their level of engagement and their questions! I tried to share my lessons learned in the early days of building @gilt @glamsquad and @tradesyclosetconcierge #womenintech

I’m looking forward to Mother’s Day this weekend. 💕 Here’s a #TBT quote from my mom about EDUCATION in the book I co-authored with @maybank “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop.” #motherlylove #awwquoteoftheweek #education

Repost from @cturlington using @RepostRegramApp - Thank you @lewismillerdesign for bringing such beautiful attention to @everymomcounts today in Central Park at the Bear Statue (79th & 5th). This is the first Wednesday of Mother’s Month and this statue represents the beauty & strength of mothers, much like the #orangerose symbol of maternal health, when supported and protected, moms and families can bloom and thrive. For every post of a photo of this Mama Bear with #LMDxEMC @lewismillerdesign will donate a dollar to @everymomcounts. This world needs all the Mamas Bears we can get so let’s love and protect them, shall we? Special thanks to two very special Mama Bears @patricialansing & @melissatberger 🧡🙏🏽🧡

For those of you considering an entrepreneurial path, it’s so important to ask yourself “IS THIS A GOOD RISK?”. Swipe to see the checklist that @maybank and I put together in our book “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop.”

This weekend, I started re-reading “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop”, the book I wrote together with my eternal wingwoman @gilt Co-Founder, @maybank. The book was published in 2012 ( @penguinbooks @portfolio_books). 📖 Within its first week it became a @nytimes bestseller. Our book enabled us to share our entrepreneurial journey which focuses on relationships and execution at the center of a fast-growing influential NYC start-up, in the days before we knew of other female founder duos. Ours is a story about friendship.👭 I thought it would be fun for me to share through my IG feed some relevant tips from the book with all of you as I go back down @gilt memory lane: “In recounting our backgrounds, key decisions, and hard-won wisdom in this book, we hope to inform, inspire, and help pave the way for others who want to start something new, advance in a career, or— especially— build a business that grows to employ dozens or even hundreds, modernize industries, and change people’s lives.” Even though we wrote this book 7 years ago, most of the learnings we share in it are still valid today. Hopefully @maybank and I can continue to inspire future entrepreneurs to take calculated risks, to innovate and to disrupt.🚀

There are few things more professionally rewarding than launching a new business. 🚀 Over the past year, I have watched “team Regi” grow and develop from an idea to a fleshed-out concept and now to a live business in two cities. Here I am with some members of our all-star #tech team. Discover more of my favorite @Regi-related features in my IGS stories. #TryRegi

I admire and respect @theannakaiser Founder and Creator of @theaktstudios (try this dance cardio workout if you haven’t!) 💃🏼. I couldn’t agree more with her quote from her feature in @spotlyte. Your health is indeed an investment, not an expense (I also feel the same way about skincare!). #awwquoteoftheweek #investinyourhealth #annakaiser
