I Have A Million Things Going On At Once

Updated: Mar 22, 2021

Hi everyone,

Know how I love to get involved in just about EVERYTHING, have a MILLION things going on at once, and am constantly working on the NEXT BIG THING? Well, IT’S HERE! While I am still actively running JICNY events for international singles and couples who have settled in NYC, and vigorously promoting Metroimma.com, a fast-growing social networking site for Jewish moms, I am also launching a new business called Jdeal! This deal-a-day site offers amazing discounts on stuff Jews love…because who doesn’t love a bargain?

I am not usually into shameless self-promotion especially on my blog but I really want to share with you as I have been working really hard on this. I did not think I could sleep less but my new reality is averaging three hours a night. I am always on Blackberry and never want to waste a minute so I am always walking the streets of Manhattan looking down and typing. A couple of weeks ago, an African American guy stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, lady. I am really worried about you. I have been walking behind you for five minutes and you have not lifted your eyes from the phone even when crossing the street. I think you have a problem!”

I love working in the Jewish space and it’s exciting that my different hats are all Jewish. There has been a great deal of buzz about our site and I am so grateful to the team that made this happen. My team is totally international and almost everyone working on the team is someone I know from JICNY. We have Australians, Germans, Israelis, Brazilians, South Africans and British members. As well as a couple of players from right here in NYC.

Check out this youtube link. It’s really funny and captures the spirit of jdeal.com. You may recognize some of the actors.

Finally, we all know Jews don’t pay retail; and definitely no-one in my network should pay retail either.

Sign up for jdeal today…and enjoy!
