Regina Leaves Live Work Play

with one comment

Today is my last day at Live Work Play. As most of you guys know, I lost my father in December and now I’ve got to simply take some personal time. I’ll be back and forth between Raleigh and Elizabeth City, NC (ugh) for the next month or two. Yes, I’m actually leaving the 2nd coolest job I’ve had since I started really working at 15. The first coolest was working & living at the beach during the summer, can’t beat that in my book. But yes, I’m leaving behind the parties and being in the know of all of Downtown Raleigh and Downtown Durham.

What does that mean? Well, if you want to hang out, you honestly have to get in on my schedule. I’ll be taking a lot of your guys up on your offers for free coffee and free dinner! :p I’ll also be taking that time to really focus on figuring out who I am as a person. What makes Regina happiest? Who the hell am I? Being caught up in my dad’s sickness really had me on a backburner and now it’s my time to shine!

That also means there might be an opening at an amazing company that needs a social media rockstar and an independent thinker with great ideas to further the company’s goals. I learned so much at Live Work Play and wouldn’t trade my time working there for anything. I’m really sorry to go :(

How can you help? Shove book and music recommendations at me. Have coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks with me and tell me what you think my strengths and wea

My World has been turned UPSIDE DOWN

knesses are and how I can improve on them. Have a job that you think I’ll be great for, TELL ME! You don’t even have to have a solution; you can simply give me a hug. I need those as well.

Peace out Live Work Play! On to deal with all the grownup things! I wish you the best in the future!

Connect with me on LinkedIn if we aren’t already connected!

A New Roulette…Minus the Boobies.

without comments

SO…

You know Chat Roulette? The place where you can video chat with people or penises? Well, Brazen Careerist just launched it’s own roulette, without the penises. Networking Roulette is a 3 minute chat session with people all over the hot social network, Brazen Careerist. There is no video so you have to hold your own with your words or your chat partner might “next” you. Read the rest of this entry »

Product Camp RTP Recap

with one comment

SO… On Saturday I attended a cool “unconference” called Product Camp RTP.

It was an unstructured free conference where attendees got to vote on what panels they wanted to see from the open call for submissions. Some of the topics that were submitted for discussion included how to work with your sales team, public resources that are available to businesses, how to stay motivated, why most marketing sucks, and a career transition panel.

The event was full of a wide range of people including the unemployed (me), IT professionals, business owners and homemakers. Each person had something to bring to the group; be it connecting with a blogger, getting new business or just meeting someone you followed on Twitter. Read the rest of this entry »

Part 2 Moving

with 12 comments

In order to have a “proper” quarter life crisis, I know I have to do something big. My big idea is to move to a new place and start over. I’ve narrowed it down to 2 dream cities with more dream locations to be added later:

Austin, TX
Raleigh, NC

Well I told my parents last week about this big move and they were ok with it. Both of them would really like me to come back to North Carolina where I’m from but I’m leaning more towards Austin. The other day, my mom calls because she’s freaked out about the guy flying his plan into the IRS building in Austin. She then proceeds to give me a lecture on how dangerous it is in Austin.

Whoa whoa whoa! Simma down!
  While the situation in Austin isn’t minor, there are a ton of bad people everywhere in the world. Regardless of where I go (unless it’s Raleigh where most of my friends from college now are) I’m going to be a single girl in a new city with like no friends. Sometimes when I think about it, it feels like I’m going to have a target stuck on my back. Then I remember the power of social media.



I’m currently a member of LinkedIn, Brazen Careerist and Twitter but before these were around, I was a member of PartyEastCarolina.com (which is currently down) This was my original social media place because I didn’t even have MySpace then (I didn’t see the point of myspace) but this message board was THE place to be for East Carolina students. I pretty much made all my “in real life” good friends from this site including one of my best friends. I’m pretty much hoping that I can do this again with different networking sites. I plan on going to tweetups when I actually get to Austin and to try some new activities like actually going to a class at a gym to meet some new peeps.

I’m friendly so that must mean I can make friends right? Well we can only hope…


What do you think are good ways to make new friends when relocating to a new area?
