Ali Stone, la Nueva Sensación Latina

  La cantautora, productora y DJ colombiana Ali Stone, quien es reconocida por su álbum debut SEXTO SENTIDO, es la nueva sensación latina y recientemente lanzó el vídeo de su sencillo ‘El Lado Oscuro’. El vídeo musical de esta canción, que fue inspirada por el cuento corto “The Masque of the Red Death” de Edgar Allan Poe, y los comics de Batman que narran la historia entre el Joker y Harley Quinn, es un viaje profundo del lado sensual del electro pop y cuenta con la colaboración del rapero multi-platino Sam I Am. Su álbum ‘SEXTO SENTIDO’, el cual debutó en la posición #1 en el chart de música electrónica y en el segundo lugar de ventas del gigante digital iTunes, cuenta con 12 canciones escritas y producidas completamente por ella misma. Además de sus notables talentos, this gorgeous girl es renombrada porque compartió tarima con The Chainsmokers y Major Lazer, fue el supporting act de Justin Bieber en su Purpose Tour y trabajó para Disney en el remix del soundtrack de “Monsters University”. La multifacética artista es una de las compositoras de música para cine más joven del mundo, quien también trabajó con los ganadores del premio ÓSCAR, Formosa Group (Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Mad Max) e hizo film scores como el del thriller ‘Demental’, reseñado en Estados Unidos y Japón como uno de los mejores soundtracks de horror. Esta compositora es un ejemplo a seguir para la juventud y comunidad latina, ya que además de su talento, persistencia y perseverancia, es la vocera de “Women Working for Women”, una campaña que promueve el empoderamiento femenino. Cabe destacar que Ali Stone es la imagen latina de la campaña de la cadena Forever 21 con la canción ‘Solo Sígueme’, tema utilizado en la campaña y que hace parte de su nuevo disco....

ANIMUS Summit Puerto Rico 2017

 Attending my first press conference in Puerto Rico came with joy and pride;  Animus, the innovation summit dedicated to empowering women to reach their highest level of personal and professional development, returns for a third edition. This year the event moves to a new venue, the Puerto Rico Convention Center, due to the warm welcome of past editions and to make room for an audience of nearly a thousand attendees. More than 30 world-class speakers will take the stage this year; among them, the iconic actress, singer and dancer Rita Moreno. And guess who else is speaking? ME!!! I am honored to participate and will be giving a one-hour digital workshop “How to create your brand online, and turn-it into a business”. Puerto Rican entrepreneurs Lucienne Gigante and Carlos Cobián created this event to provide a space in which women get inspired, learn, connect and gain access to opportunities for growth and transformation. Regardless of their career level, from students to presidents and business owners, every attendee has something to gain from the event. Feeling proud with @animussummit Founders @lucienne_gigante @cobianmedia at press conference #AnimusPR 🇵🇷 I am a Speaker #DigitalWorkshop #PuertoRico #webcitygirlsInPR #webcitygirls #empresarias A post shared by webcitygirls (@webcitygirls) on Aug 23, 2017 at 9:08am PDT “Investing in the economic development of women is a solution to grow and transform countries. Women are making way and growing businesses at a fast pace, and we need tools for scalable growth. Animus invites you to think big, it opens doors, it connects you and gives you the chance to listen to great stories, of both failure and success, which can guide people of all ages and career stages,” said Animus co-founder Lucienne Gigante, who has developed innovation and economic development program for women during more than 10 years. #AnimusPR conference happening NOW LIVE via https://t.co/WNQaGmDjZA @animussummit #PuertoRico #webcitygirlsPR 🇵🇷 pic.twitter.com/TkvUsXTJSP — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) August 23, 2017 “It is well-documented that women-led businesses have a higher ROI than those not led by women. Appointing women to leadership positions is a smart business move. That is why, at Animus, we’re empowering them with the right tools and with skills they can put to practice right after the event,” said Animus co-founder Carlos Cobián, who is also the founder of Cobian Media. To broaden the range of experiences presented at the event, each edition of Animus hosts an all-encompassing selection of leaders, from every age and industry, who have broken the frameworks in their respective fields and become role models for success. So excited to be speaking alongside one of my heroes at @animussummit! Rita Moreno is going to bring down the...

A Trip to Isabela, Puerto Rico

A Trip to Isabela, Puerto Rico

 This past weekend I got invited by some friends to a discovery trip of beach town Isabela, on the northwest side of the island known for impressive beaches. The purpose of this trip was mainly to search for beach properties that could be a good fit to turn into an Airbnb. Isabela has a chill vibe, and you can sense a soft calmness through a delightful sound from the nearby ocean. Easy to fall in love with this beautiful beach town feeling the warmth of its people. A fun fact is that as we drove through the town, people would would wave to us. Several fun stops at local restaurant and bars followed, easily connecting with friendly and kind people from Isabela. We saw lots of properties for sale, this town is hurting by the recession, but I feel that with investors catching on and a great marketing campaign, Isabela can be on its way to become the new IT PLACE! There are some truly spectacular beaches and beautiful properties. A remarkable property that requires a post within itself, and an overnight stay plus interview with the owners is a magical place called Royal Isabela. I think this could be the most stunning and beautiful experience while visiting Puerto Rico and I feel it is a secret to the world.  Need to come back and capture original content for my LIVE Show in the FALL: “WebCityGirls LIVE from Puerto Rico”. Stay tuned Check out the Royal Isabela video story and some pics:...
