City / State
New York, NY
What was your big dream?
To build a media company that creates and produces original content, mass-audience websites that are also socially-responsible—that is the goal for Weill Media. I love the idea of using media as a platform to do good in the world.
How did you accomplish it?
Where did you find inspiration to get started?
Before we created our first site: ProjectAngelMom.com, I saw a show about parents who sent all 4 of their children to college by recycling millions of bottles and cans. I thought to myself, “How can I send this woman a check?”
When I couldn’t find any contact information for her online, I wanted to create a website where people who are inspired by tragic news stories could find out direct-donation information for the families behind those headlines. 100% of the money that gets sent in goes directly to the families profiled on the site.
What motivated you to keep going?
Every time the traffic goes up on ProjectAngelMom.com I think, “I hope all those people are making donations!” As a former magazine editor (I was in magazines for 14 years) I love the thrill of having an idea and then seeing it published.
What's your next Big Dream?
To teach my 2-year old to go to sleep at a normal hour.
When you were 5 what did you want to be when you grew up?
A famous writer.
What about when you were 15?
A famous writer.
Now, what do you want to be when you grow up?
The kind of mother who can find my kids’ mittens in the morning on a consistent basis. Matching mittens.
What book is on your night stand?
Eats, Shoots, and Leaves—it’s a delicious book about the use and misuse of punctuation. I find it so hilarious that sometimes I wake my husband up because I’m laughing out loud while reading it in bed.
What's your Guilty Pleasure? (grey's anatomy, peppermint mocha lattes,
Expensive shoes. Also, I am not a good singer but I love to sing! Karaoke all the way—especially Pat Benatar.
