The Latest on Lisa – Oct 2013

There’s been a lot of fantastic activity in Lisa land lately. So much to share. But most importantly, I’m really happy. Everything is moving at a nice pace.

Here we go:

LISA IN ACTION:

So I’ve appeared on Pivot, Participant Media’s new network for Millennials, a couple times.

Talking with Cara on Take Part Live about the series I created, produced, and directed, The American Dream Revised.:

Sharing insight on failure and career success with speaker Josh Shipp:

LISA’S WORDS:

I penned a piece for Forbes entitled “The Real Reason Women Aren’t Receiving Venture Capital” – this is a continuation of my efforts to create more opportunities for women to excel in media and tech.

 

LISA LIVE:

I’ll be on stage several times in the next few months. If you’re in LA, mark your calendar. If you’re not in LA, book a flight.

LISA GIVING BACK:

I attended the Unlikely Heroes event in Hollywood this month. The event is hosted by an organization working to end human trafficking worldwide. This is a great cause – I also contributed to the End Sex Trafficking Day book created by Erin Giles.

LISA IN TECH:

Some people know that my two loves can be reduced to stories and code. I love media and I love tech. So when I haven’t been in the throes of writing, shooting, or running ILMG, I’ve been advising startups that are looking to get integrated into Hollywood. I get to employ a wide range of my skills and create a measurable impact which makes me happy. Here’s a recent deal.

 

So that’s a sample of what’s new and exciting. As always, there’s more in the oven. Stay tuned.
