Melanie Notkin, known to many nationwide as the Savvy Auntie, is an entrepreneur who knows how to grow her brand (& her Twitter following or Facebook) and as a solo-preneur, she's done it quickly and powerfully all by herself. Thinking of this, and seeing how hard she works, we knew she MUST have a great music mix getting her going every Monday. We'll get to that soon, but just in case you don't know who Melanie is yet....here's a sneak peek:
Melanie, in only a few short years, has made herself a name as America’s premier Savvy Auntie, empowering the nearly 50% of American women who are not moms to celebrate all they do for the children in their lives, while living their own lives to the fullest. She launched SavvyAuntie.com, the first online community for aunts and godmothers (who she dubbed PANKS: Professional Aunts No Kids), in the summer of 2008 to wide-acclaim. The website includes expert content designed specifically for aunts, activities, community and trendy gift ideas. This Auntie-Movement has grown from a website to an Auntie's Day, a Nationally best-selling book and Melanie & her brand have been seen in the press in places such as NPR, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, CBS....you get it - this girls got game!
Behind every great entrepreneur, beyond all the hard work, there is also often a great playlist, and with that thought in mind, we give you Melanie's Monday Motivation Mix!
PLAYLIST OF GUEST DJ: MELANIE NOTKIN, SAVVY AUNTIE
I do 20 minutes on the bike at the gym cycling through this song over and
over again! Sometimes, I just stand away from my desk and dance to it.
Want to get your groove on, PRENEURS? Oh get this song on, PRENEURS…
It’s overplayed, true. But who doesn’t want to feel like THIS day will ignite a
Firework in business?!
Another great dance beat that wakes me up better than coffee! Dance like it’s the last night of your life! Go Go Go!!
When you need a little push…. A little light to get you through a through a day. “I just need a light at the end of the tunnel”
I have a fire in my heart! It’s a good way to start the day and remember why you started this business in the first place!
Yes, yes, they ARE crazy. But you are sane. Keep going!!
This is how I want to feel the next time I meet a great guy. It will happen!
Oh New York… the fashion capital of MY world and my love!
It’s a beautiful lullaby to a woman hoping for love…. Good night. XO
