Here’s what they had to say to our brilliant office manager who manages these requests to assist with international trade:

    I love you!!!!!!!

    Dear Friends:

    AT&T has a long standing commitment to LGBT equality and empowerment. Starting in 1975, AT&T became one of the first Fortune 500 companies to adopt a non-discrimination policy toward sexual orientation, and in 1998, one of the first to adopt domestic partner benefits for LGBT employees.

    AT&T also has the first LGBT employee resource group in corporate America. Founded by employees in 1987, the LEAGUE at AT&T — the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Organization — is one of the company’s 11 employee resource groups aimed at networking, collaboration and professional development.

    Since then, we have continued to provide benefits and unique programs for LGBT employees. We are proud to be consistently listed in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s “Best Places to Work” for LGBT employees. Our dedication to supporting LGBT employees hallmarks the inclusive and diverse culture fostered at AT&T.

    In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, AT&T launched the second annual “Live Proud” campaign that is centered on awareness, empowerment and, most importantly, pride. The “Live Proud” campaign will cross the nation this summer as we celebrate in cities across the country, including New York where we will be celebrating Pride June 27-29. The festivities will culminate in our League members, employees and friends marching together in the parade on Sunday, June 29th.

    Also for the second year in a row and as part of “Live Proud”, AT&T is teaming up with LGBT advocate and world-renowned performer Adam Lambert to encourage the LGBT community and beyond to create unique memes that represents how they “Live Proud” and share those memes via social media.

    Among the memes submitted and shared via Facebook and/or Twitter, four lucky winners will be chosen at random for a chance to meet Adam at a private event in New York City. One lucky “Grand Prize” winner will be selected to attend the private event, in addition to spending one-on-one time with Adam prior to the event. An additional five winners will receive an AT&T technology prize package.

    From now through Aug. 10, we encourage you to join the movement in the following ways:


     "Like” the AT&T Live Proud Facebook page by visiting att.com/liveproud.
     Submit a unique meme that represents an AT&T “Live Proud” moment.
     Share your meme with others online, using the hashtag #ATTLiveProud — and be sure to tag @ATTNYC or @adamlambert

    Learn more about how we “Live Proud” straight from Adam Lambert in the blog post he wrote following the announcement of this year’s campaign.

    I hope to see you celebrating Pride this month online and on the streets!


    Sincerely,

    Marissa Shorenstein
    New York State President, AT&T

    From Forbes by:
    Eric T. Wagner Contributor

    Breaks my heart.

    According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. A whopping 80% crash and burn.

    But why? What can we learn from the colossal amount of failure with small business that we can apply to our own business aspirations?

    In my 30 plus years as a serial (yes – hate that word too) entrepreneur, and through my exposure to thousands of entrepreneurs via my company Mighty Wise Media, I have seen plenty.

    And yes, at surface level the primary reason businesses fail is they simply run out of cash.

    But trust me — the cracks in the foundation start well before the brutal day of financial collapse.

    Emerging companies from the US and abroad are eligible to participate in the program, which runs from September 29 to October 1, 2014. The application period is open now through August 22.

    World to NYC will provide knowledge exchange and collaboration between cutting-edge companies already present in the city and those considering New York City for their US / East-coast expansion.

    Over three days, participants will have the opportunity to meet leaders of large corporations, tech entrepreneurs, investors, lawyers who specialize in business incorporation and immigration issues, NYC government officials, and other expats who have expanded their businesses to NYC, among many others. Delegates will also take tours of workspaces and incubators, prominent NYC companies, and different tech neighborhoods in NYC.

    Through this program, NYC is setting the stage for urban efficiency, sustainability, and innovation --inviting the most promising startup companies from around the world to present their solutions in the context of continuous urbanization and its economic opportunities for New York City’s citizens, businesses, and partners.

    Who are we looking for?

    We are looking for digitally-enabled technologies (including software, hardware, and connected devices) that make cities more intelligent, efficient, and resilient by optimizing use of energy, resources and the built environment. While we welcome interest from any company focusing on the application of technology to urban sustainability, the following sectors are of particular interest:

    • mobility & transportation
    • energy, including clean generation, smart grid, and efficiency
    • intelligent infrastructure

    What will the program include?

    The 3- day program will include:
    • networking opportunities
    • introductions to potential business partners
    • information useful to companies expanding into New York City
    • other events. 

    The program runs Monday-Wednesday (September 29th – October 1st), allowing sufficient time on Thursday and Friday for participating companies to schedule their own business meetings in the city.

    The program is free of charge and participants are responsible for their own airfare, hotels, etc.

    ManhattanSideways.com, is a website dedicated to exploring the side streets of Manhattan. For almost two years, Betsy Bober Polivy, the creator of Manhattan Sideways, has been walking from the East River to the Hudson with the sole purpose of promoting the businesses on these streets.

    The project began as a whimsical idea of crisscrossing the side streets of Manhattan and has quickly become a top source that celebrates small businesses and introduces viewers to all that makes up a neighborhood. Through vibrant photography and videos alongside detailed descriptions, the Manhattan Sideways team pounds the pavement every day to provide information on boutiques, bars, restaurants, hotels, galleries, gardens, historic sites and more.

    In a statement, Betsy noted that the Avenues — the major north to south thoroughfares of the island — are well-covered by the media and well-traversed by shoppers and travelers. “I wanted to get off the beaten path and explore the side streets. In fact, the development of Manhattan’s iconic grid, starting at 1st Street and continuing up to 155th Street, envisioned the side streets as being of greater importance than the avenues,” she said. “I am literally walking side to side, east to west, beginning on 1st Street and wending my way north. My goal is to walk the numbered side streets and document every commercial establishment, and other places of interest, with special feature write-ups along the way." Presently, the site has 45 streets on it. There are almost 8,000 entries with a new street getting ready to go up every week to ten days.

    Please take a moment to look at the site manhattansideways.com and to explore many of the hidden gems about which Betsy has written. To gain a better understanding of Manhattan Sideways, you might want to watch the recent Fox 5 News interview http://www.myfoxny.com/clip/10304485/manhattan-sideways

    From Changing the Game:How Business Innovations Reduce the Impact of Disasters Page 7

    By Nancy Ploeger, President, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce 


    Jacqueline Goewey, owner of Made Fresh Daily on Front Street in the South Street Seaport of New York City, has been in business for more than five years and has more than five full-time and part-time employees.

    She opened her café just as the recession hit. She was just starting out and says the recession actually allowed her to focus on the finer points of running a business and it has gotten better and better every year—until Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012.

    Goewey’s business dropped off tremendously, and not only was she faced with a disastrous business situation but—to add insult to injury—she also lives in the area and could not even get into her apartment for months after the storm. She had to sublet an apartment and eventually find a new one.

    The day after the storm hit, Goewey, her manager, and staff gathered in boots and work clothes to go into the café, assess the damage, and begin clean-up efforts. There was a surge of seven feet of water at the front of her store and four feet in back. Even though the café is elevated off the sidewalk (four small steps to enter the café and about a three-foot elevation), the surge swept through the restaurant.

    All of the machines were ruined. The only good thing is that the café lacks a basement, unlike many other stores and shops in the Seaport area, so Goewey had no electrical issues to contend with. Her furnace had to be repaired to the tune of $4,000 and she had to purchase new refrigerators and lost thousands of dollars in food, products, and supplies.

    However, the group “worked like dogs” to clean up and get the café open as quickly as they could. They were able to reopen just before Thanksgiving—less than one month after the hurricane. For weeks, they were the only business open on their street.

    Goewey trimmed her staff, hoping to hire them back as business took an upswing. As construction workers moved in and out of the area, she offered breakfast and lunch specials to attract their business. Also, the local residents came back, grateful for her café and for her dedication to reopening, as she offered not only great food but also a place where they could hang out and meet fellow Seaport business owners and residents.

    One of Goewey’s neighbors, Victor Chan, owner of Suteishi Japanese restaurant a few doors down, came to her with an innovative idea. Because most of her baking was done in the early morning and most of her clients came from early morning to about 4 p.m., Chan asked Goewey if he could share her kitchen. He could prepare food for takeout during the evening, when her shop was closed, and this way he, too, could retain his customers even though he could not offer restaurant seating. Goewey agreed, and the two owners supported each other to keep their businesses open and serve their customers. Goewey says that Chan’s staff even helped her staff package and wrap cookies for a special event she was doing to help raise funds for a local nonprofit.

    Their staffs worked well together during the few hours a day they overlapped and became quite close; they keep in touch even today. Suteishi was able to keep 60% to 70% of its business just through deliveries and worked out of Made Fresh Daily for 10 months.

    Made Fresh Daily’s business continued to increase, and Goewey was able to rehire her staff. The café was doing just fine until fall 2013, when one of the Seaport area’s attractions,

    Pier 17, shut down, resulting in fewer tourists. After the tough and long winter of 2013–2014, Goewey is looking forward to spring, when she can greet her returning customers, support her community, and serve her delicious food.

    Hear what MCC Member Faith Kinslow of True Identity Branding had to say about MCC’s Networking and Toot Your Own Horn Breakfast hosted by TD Bank:
    “Just wanted to tell you that I thought today's event was excellent. Hearing a 2 minute presentation from several people made me aware of which professionals have synergy with my skill set. I feel like I got to know many more people than usual although I only got to speak to two of the speakers. I made my way over to the two whose businesses I was most interested in hearing more about. It gave me the information to recommend them to people I know. I hope we do a lot more "Toot Your Own Horn" events. I think they are most valuable and practical.”

    Friends of LiquidTalent,
    LiquidTalent is becoming the go-to-place for exceptional professionals to discover one another and work together through short-mode projects. We believe that work should be more autonomous, mobile and lifestyle driven. Defined projects, with clear timelines, deliverables and budget, are great building blocks to make this vision a reality.

    "Look around you. The way work gets done is changing. Work is being reduced into smaller pieces, changing the process both for companies that buy work and for professionals delivering work for pay. Whether you are a full-time employee, a professional considering independence, a career independent consultant, or an organizational leader tasked with evolving your company’s workforce equation, one thing is clear: the new Project Economy has arrived and is here to stay." - mbo partners

    We have been listening and learning from the very beginning. We have listened to our early users, to our advisors and to our contemporaries and have kept our finger on the pulse of the overall independent market.

    Dear Friends:
    Summer is in full swing — and we couldn’t be more excited to offer New Yorkers several unique summertime initiatives to keep you safe and connected while you have fun in the sun!
    Whether you’re relaxing in one of New York City’s many outdoor spaces or rushing through the streets to get to your destination, we are committed to providing you with the most reliable 4G LTE network whenever and wherever you are—keeping you connected to things that matter to you most.

    Here are a few ways we’re keeping you connected this summer:
    AT&T Street Charge
    AT&T Street Charge solar powered mobile charging stations launched for a second year in a row in May. The initiative offers a solution to New Yorkers who are always on the go and need to remain connected, providing them with a free charge to their mobile device across the five boroughs.

    We have set up charging units in more than 20 parks, beaches and outdoor gathering spots throughout the city, offering a quick charge to users’ phones, tablets and similar devices.

    AT&T Street Charge grew out of a need for a sustainable power source in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and took on a life of its own when we deployed more than two dozen solar-powered units across the city last summer.

    After receiving such positive feedback about last year's program, we doubled the number of units — 45 in total — to provide a sustainable solution to keep people connected while they enjoy the sun and summer months.
    We made some additional upgrades to the units to make them more weather resistant, able to withstand higher usage and ensure users have the best experience possible while charging.
    Learn more about AT&T Street Charge and where to find your nearest charging unit here.


    WiFi in the Parks
    Complementing AT&T Street Charge, AT&T’s Wi-Fi in the Parks initiative provides free Wi-Fi to New York City park goers — regardless of their provider — in more than 25 parks locations across all five boroughs.

    We recently announced that free Wi-Fi is now available at the High Line between 14th and 16th streets as part of this popular initiative.
    Connected Intersections
    Building on AT&T’s national efforts to raise awareness about the dangers of texting while driving, we are committed to improving New Yorkers’ commutes across all modes of transportation, be it walking, riding, driving or using mass transit. Part of that commitment is helping to improve safety on New York City streets.


    In June, AT&T, along with NYU Poly, NYC Media Lab and Challenge Post, launched Connected Intersections, a challenge focused on creating technological solutions to improve traffic safety on city streets and in other urban environments using the collective power of the city's transportation, technology and academic and advocacy communities.
    The challenge focuses on making the roads safer by taking advantage of smartphone sensors, phone-to-phone communications and natural user interfaces, among other technologies, to help create smart and useable solutions.

    To kick-off the initiative, AT&T and NYC Media Lab released a paper, titled “Exploring How Mobile Technologies Impact Pedestrian Safety,” which draws on research from around the country to examine smartphone distraction and other impediments to traffic safety.

    According to the paper, recent statistics show New York City pedestrian fatalities in car crashes were four times greater than the national average. “Driver inattention” was cited by the NYPD as the cause of about a third of all crashes. In 2012, New York City experienced 10,925 crashes between pedestrians and cars, and in 2013, there were 14,845 pedestrian-car crashes. Researchers believe many of these types of crashes are occurring because pedestrians and drivers are distracted by their smartphones or other electronic devices instead of paying attention to the road.
    We are looking for developers, designers, technologists and UX/UI/IxD professionals to create solutions to improve traffic safety and reduce collisions in NYC, and are looking forward to unveiling participants’ submissions at the end of the challenge in October.
    Learn more about Connected Intersections and how to register for the challenge here.
    Whether it’s a day at the beach, a picnic in the park or a trip across the city from one meeting to the next, AT&T wants to keep you safe and connected.  I am excited about our innovative summertime initiatives and hope to see New Yorkers getting a quick charge on the go, connecting online in a park or creating the next street-safety technology over the next few months!
    Sincerely,

    Marissa Shorenstein
    New York State President, AT&T
