Can we talk about "ride or die" partners for a moment over breakfast? . @themommyelf and I debate... a lot. We seldom agree on many things but she is one of my favorite people to work with because her work ethic is hard to come by in the blogesphere. . Tomorrow, she will be assisting me teach a "Livestreaming for Non-profits" for one of my top accounts. . A true gem... If you are not following her, you need to fix your life. . #thesideofmeyouseldomsee

I am moments away from delivering a private keynote that I am delivering in El Barrio to 25 brands who have traveled from all over the country. 🌻 They will not only learn who Gloria DelRio is today... but we will tour NYC to see the legacy abuelas like her have created and how it has impacted our lives in our community. 🌻 She will be with me all day. 🌻 I live for this...


Love like this... ❤️

Last night was a movie... Hanging with some bros at the @amor931fm @camilamx en privado concert. Shout out to my boy Nico for the VIP access.


‪I loved Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. It was actually better than most of its live action predecessors. ‬ ‪The story, art and music, all on point but the inclusion factor is the big win here. This is how you create movies that reflect reality.‬ ‪#IntoTheSpiderVerse
