PELHAM, NEW YORK, USA, November 15, 2019 — Two NY teen entrepreneurs lit up the Forbes 30 under 30 summit in Detroit through street wear and environmental passion! 

Forbes supports Entrepreneurship, and proves it when Forbes8 and iCON partnered with two 16 year olds: Julia Corso and Vincent Testorf, co-founders of a brand new streetwear company based in NY. Part of GenZ, these two young entrepreneurs were the perfect match to link their inspiring generation with the new Forbes8’s interactive international platform.  
Forbes 30 Under 30 in Detroit was on fire, according to Teen entrepreneurs GenZ Julia Corso (age 16) and Vincent Testorf (age 16), creators of street wear line dripeight (www.dripeight.com) which was presented during the NYFW last September. 

The Teens partnered with Forbes8 and iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect, and potential of Gen-Z. Dripeight is a world class streetwear line that gives a portion of all sales to help climate change. In their own words: “We want to make an impact in everyday life, and to connect with people who have the same sense of style, and fashion. Through our designs, we can express our worries about what’s happening to our planet. We donate 10 % of our profits to charities – it is our way to show our commitment”.

Dripeight designed a T-shirt showing the partnership of the brands during the “forbes under 30” summit in Detroit. 
The Gen Z teens “T-shirt” was so dope (desirable), it made it into the hands of basketball legend Kevin Durant, rapper Quavo Huncho, and rapper 21 Savage
The mammoth movement of Gen-Z catalyzed Dripeight and iCON’s initial meeting. iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect and potential of Gen-Z, closes skills and data-gaps by harnessing their most precious asset: talent. iCON fuses creative content, social media and skills-based education to provide a new place to be inspired, to exchange ideas and build skills. iCON’s formidable partnership with Forbes8 grounds it as the go-to source for Gen-Z innovation, and a natural collaboration for Drip Eight.

I believe Jordyn Woods! Travis Scott NYC is waiting for you!

The drama, I never thought I would even be commenting on this until it hit my household. YES, this weekend is the long awaited Travis Scott concert at the Barclays in Brooklyn. I hear that Kylie Jenner is upset so Travis Scott canceled Buffalo concert and flew from NY back to LA. He even might be canceling his concert at the Barclays. Listen to me, Travis Scott, you worked to hard to get to this point, compartmentalize and get out there and give these kids a good show.

Let’s everyone calm down, we all know Tristen Thompson is a player, right now he does not want to be tied to one woman. Jordyn welcome to real life, maybe it’s time you stop living in Kylie’s guest house and get a place of your own. As for Khloe, your a single Mom, work on your business and give yourself a little time. As for Kylie & Jordan, I think you need to take a pause and redefine your friendship and time will heal. Travis Scott don’t get caught up keep making music.

Our Olympians need the best, I recommend #HEX #Laundry Detergent for Gold Medal Results

Our Olympians need the best, I recommend #HEX  #Laundry Detergent for Gold Medal Results ​FullSizeRender

I am so proud of all the Olympians especially proud of our athletes that we sponsor at the New York Athletic Club. The USA Gold Medalist Women Rowing team are incredible, they train hard, watch nutrition and need to look great in their uniform representing the USA. They also must be conscience of products that they use, especially their clothes and workout wear. A lot of people might not realize it but many leading brands of detergent have chemicals in them that can irritates the skin. As a "spandex mom" who likes to workout and admire our Olympians I highly recommend using HEX free and clear laundry I give it a gold metal, (yes that's me holding the gold metal) because it is eco-friendly, cleans and does not irritate your skin. USE this Promo code:

We all like excellence and high performance, let me tell you about HEX and why its the only detergent I will use on my athletic wear  Did you know that odor get trapped in the polyester and builds up because traditional detergents do not get the sweat, dirt and body oil. Sometimes instead of clean clothes, you get clothes that smell good, are just coated with a fragrance. Then when you workout and sweat the odor comes back again. YUCK, you will not have that problem with HEX detergents they clean. When workout wear is cleaned correctly it lasts longer. I may not be a gold medalist but I do strive for excellence and good health for myself and family. It does all start in the home, so treat yourself and your workout wear with the best products on the market. Personally knowing the athletes, I know everything does come into play when working out and competing and trusting your team. I have to trust the products I use just and know that they will help me not hurt me. FullSizeRenderUSE this Promo code:

Go see #Snatched Silly Fun, but meeting #GoldieHawn & #AmySchumer amazing!

IMG_1165Snatched was a silly fun movie, dumped by her boyfriend on the eve of their vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn), to accompany her on an exotic getaway to South America.  Opposites, Emily and Linda must soon work through their differences to escape from a wildly outrageous and dangerous jungle adventure funny, entertaining. But the best part was meeting Amy and Goldie at TheMom's blogger movie premier event on Park Ave in New York City. The interview was serious at times but Amy true to herself was hysterical The moms interviewed and hosted Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn for a Mamaraazzi event in NYC for their new movie Snatched. They sat down with The MOMS to dish on the film and during the interview Amy admitted “her uterus remains empty for now, but she would like to have kids someday.” I also gave Amy Schumer a crystal for good energy and she liked it! I gave the one to Donald Trump too, hey we all need good energy, maybe on a higher level it will help. We all had a absolute blast and even all dance together in honor of #DanceforBreastCancerChallenge.

Expert Advice to Help Your Teen Make (and Keep!) New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions 2017. They’re ambitious, yet intimidating; full of hope, yet all too easily forgotten. And for teens, they’re just plain overwhelming.

“While balanced perspective can be challenging for adults, it is often daunting for teenagers. Impulsivity reigns supreme during adolescence – often limiting our aspirations,” says psychotherapist and Mental Gym founder, Bill Benson, who advises parents on how to approach the subject of New Year’s resolutions with teens. 

So how can parents help their teens make lasting New Year’s resolutions? We asked mothers, fathers, family therapists, and parenting experts to contribute their top tips. Their answers may surprise you…

Parents help teens new year's resolutions

1. Set feasible goals.

Instead of brainstorming grandiose life makeovers with your teen, focus on smaller, more actionable items. Varda Meyers Epstein, Kars4Kids writer and mother-of-12, suggests choosing ten little things and concentrating on those, like laying out school clothes the night before or dedicating ten minutes in the morning to a nutritious breakfast. “Any goal that is ‘can-do’ is appropriate for a teen,” Meyers Epstein says, “They already know they can succeed with them, and it gets them moving forward in a proactive, positive way.” 

2. Practice “accepting,” not “expecting.”

“Support your kid’s aspirations by ‘accepting’ rather than ‘expecting,’” says Benson, “Kindly step outside of your own boxed perspective when listening to your child’s hopes, dreams, desires, and goals – you just may learn something by considering the fresh perspective of a developing mind.”

As a way to advance this suggestion into practice, try actively listening to your teen’s New Year’s resolutions, then repackage and repeat them back to your teen, before tweaking them with your own suggestions. Doing so will make your teen feel heard and will create a safe space to further conversation. 

3. Don’t call them “resolutions.”

“We don’t make New Year’s resolutions,” states Homeschool Base editor, Sarah Tippett, “we set goals and plan! Of course they’re still New Year’s resolution[s], but we approach things very differently.”

So what’s Tippett’s key to helping her teens make and keep these aspirations? “Make the goals very specific and formulate a plan or a checklist of items that need to be done to achieve these goals.” 

4. Set goals as a family.

Renaming New Year’s resolutions isn’t the only way Tippett helps her teens achieve their New Year’s goals. “We also set goals as a family,” Tippett states, claiming accountability as the driving force, “The best way to achieve a goal is to tell everyone you know.” Following Tippett’s advice, try encouraging your teen to keep their sibling updated on their goal to read more. As a parent, follow up with your teen by asking questions or provoking discussion around their resolution throughout the year. Set goals as a family (like going on more walks or making sure there’s always something green on the dinner table), and make it a fun challenge to accomplish them together! 

5. Make it personal.

“When your goal involves people who are external factors you can’t control, it will not end well,” Tippett warns. Just as there are many good ways to help your teen make New Year’s Resolutions, there are also many avenues to avoid as well. Tippett’s own child attempted to set a New Year’s resolution that involved improving the relationship between himself and a co-worker. “You can’t expect anyone else to ‘go along’ with your resolution,” Tippett cautions, “Although my teen tried to do a great job, the co-worker was unresponsive.” 

6. Write it down.

“I like to tell my kids to write down 10 things they can do to improve their lives — in even a very small way — and to work through that list,” says Meyers Epstein. Other parents agree: “Write it down on a piece of paper or tell your teen to put it in their phone,” says Parenting Expert, Cherie Corso, “Every day, your teen will look at that resolution. By seeing it, he or she will remember to take actions towards that goal.” 

So now that you know how to make New Year’s resolutions, what types of goals should you help your teens set? As test prep experts, it would be downright irresponsible of us not to advocate for resolutions that can help your teen achieve their future college goals. While you’re planning 2017 resolutions with your teen, include feasible goals to help them improve their ACT scores; like following a personalized ACT study plan or committing to raising their score by 10 points with these easy tips. In addition, our experts came up with a few additional suggestions (in addition to the ones above) that implement their advice, including: 

  • making a point to eat healthier at dinner
  • developing a conflict management system to avoid exhaustive feuds with siblings
  • flossing daily
