Carla & Curtis Play End of World Gig in NYC on Dec 20th

Posted in A Day in the Life, Gigs | No Comments »

So how’s that for a title? 😉

I was originally set to join Curtis Becraft for his gig at Bushwick Brooklyn’s Goodbye Blue Monday on Dec 20th at 9pm, when he turned around and got *me* a gig to fill in for a cancellation at 11pm. Curtis, sweetheart that he is, agreed to stay and sit in with me for the later set, so it’s gonna be a fun night of music.

It’s not that I believe that the world will end on Dec 21st as the Mayans predicted, BUT if it so happens that there is some kind of apocalyptic event, I will have at least spent my final hours making music with good friends. That works for me!

Curtis and I have some fun musical things planned for the New Year, so this gig will just be a teaser. Come early for Curtis’ gig, grab a bite from the kitchen, and then hang out with us for my 11pm slot.

If the world does end, you don’t want to sleep through it. Come on out!

Internet Famous VIP Small Business Saturday SALE!

For my small business and entrepreneur clients, I’m also having an Internet Famous VIP sale on workshops and coaching packages.

After Thanksgiving’s “Black Friday” holiday which encourages shoppers to pack malls at ungodly hours, I really appreciate “Small Business Saturday”, which encourages consumers to support their local mom and pop shops. Analysts at Civic Economics have determined that for every $100 spent at local small businesses, $68 returns to the community.

American Express created Small Business Saturday in 2010 to help their small business account holders better promote their brick-and-mortar stores, offering free resources for businesses. This event has grown over the past few years, and I’m excited for the small business owners who take advantage.
