    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi ...Come celebrate ..Birthday time !

    in Pop Culture

    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene. 
    Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey. Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films.Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch , The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, and a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy. http://mkostabi.com

    Using Virtual Assistants in Real Estate

    in Business

    This episode explores the various ways to use virtual assistants in real estate.

    As a licensed real estate agent some of the challenges that I faced was trying to research properties, call for property availability, set appointments and perform follow up, usually at the same time! I was the ultimate multi-tasker!  I have recently discovered how a virtual assistant can help real estate agents, with eliminating tasks, enhancing their professional image, becoming more productive, making more money and creating more work life balance.

    Contact me for a consultation and I will show you how to make a life transformation.  Send me a message today for more information!

    Metalsmith Benchtalk Past Favorites with Sydney Lynch

    in Art

    This Thursday, October 29th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk, we'll be going back into the archives for one of our favorite past episodes- a chat with artist and jeweler Sydney Lynch. 

    About: Since 1981, jewelry artist Sydney Lynch has been designing and making her handmade jewelry featuring contemporary earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants and pins in 18k and 22k gold and sterling silver. From her studio in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sydney creates both her Designer Line and singular One Of A Kind pieces that include a variety of gemstones such as opal, aquamarine, tourmaline,diamonds, pearls, beryl, peridot and sapphire set in high karat gold and silver.

    I fell in love with jewelry when I was young, rummaging through my grandmother’s bureau drawers, enchanted by her treasure trove of costume jewelry that she kept in a jumble of tiny boxes, each with its own story. Since childhood I have accumulated and “curated” my collections of objects, found and acquired, assembling them in patterns and groupings that often inspire my jewelry designs. I think of these pebbles, shells, rusted metal fragments and art objects as an archive of personal memories.

    While working on the Navajo Reservation during college, I fell in love with the wide open western landscape and met my first silversmiths who inspired me to learn to make my own jewelry. I moved from Connecticut to Colorado, where I got my BFA at the University of Colorado, and decided if nothing else, a traditional career wasn’t for me. I eventually relocated to a farm in Nebraska, then to Lincoln, where I now live. I have an airy, sun-filled studio where I work with two bench assistants and my husband.

    So You Are Ready to Become a Virtual Assistant. Now What?

    in Business

    Denise Griffitts interviews 'The Busy Entrepreneur's Secret Weapon' Tracey Osborne.

    In this program, we are talking about the virtual assistance industry, a subject near and dear to my heart as I am considered a virtual assistance industry expert. Today I am interviewing a friend and colleague who is also a leader and expert in online business management and project management with over 8 years experience in the industry. She is also CEO of Business Solutions Made Simple, a multi-VA firm made up of the best and brightest virtual assistants (VA) who specialize in assisting high achieving entrepreneurs.

    The Virtual Assistance industry is experiencing explosive growth, but the downside to that is that there are too many people struggling to find quality, clients. And as Tracey and I have discussed numerous times both privately and publicly, the problem often lies in the depth (or lack thereof) of business knowledge and actual training/education the new VA has acquired.

    We will talk about:

    What do you need to start a VA business?

    How do you price your services?

    Where do you get clients?

    What about subcontracting for other VA's?

    How can you "level up" your VA business?

    How do you manage your time, clients and projects?

    How can you compete with the "big dogs" in the VA industry?

    Please join us in the chat room to ask questions. And when the show has ended you will be able to listen to the episode on demand or in iTunes.
