How could I not feature someone whose professional title is Chief Excitement Officer?! That’s Sabina aka @SabinaKnows.
Sabina, co-founder of Tin Shingle, is my Brooklyn neighbor. I admire her enthusiasm for entrepreneurship – hers and that of others. Here’s your chance to get to know Sabina.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@SabinaKnows: I suppose I’ll just describe my husband – His passion for life, sense of direction and purpose, shared values, sense of humor, intellect, a desire to keep growing and improving himself, someone who supports my entrepreneurial, lots of love and affection – I’m a hugger and a hand holder – and he should also be able to tolerate when I “take my brain to the spa” from time to time, AKA watch crappy reality shows.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
@SabinaKnows: Moxie. I’ve always been a bit of a determined firecracker.
OneChicklette: We like Moxie around here.
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@SabinaKnows: They make me feel safe being myself and sharing that with them. Most of my closest friends also were patiently there as I figured out who that self was…Mutual support of each other’s dreams, ambitions and lives as opposed to jealousy or competition. They are also all pretty hilarious.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@SabinaKnows: Spending time somewhere warm where I could bounce between time lazing around reading and relaxing with my husband and time spent creating and writing with no pressure, no interruptions and no obligations.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@SabinaKnows: A job that sucks away my life force, lacks inspiration or forces me to wear business suits. That, and purposeless meetings.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@SabinaKnows: Anne of Green Gables
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@SabinaKnows: Eat: Anything my Polish mom cooks. The fact that she’s all the way in Michigan means she now coaches me through her recipes via FaceTime but it’s not the same.
Drink: Water, infused with whatever I have around the house, as well as really good red wine.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@SabinaKnows: iPhone, meditation, YouTube (you can find anything from tech advice to inspirational TED Talks – how can you not be addicted), iPad (I’m reading multiple books on it right now), Dohm Original Sound Conditioner to block out the sound of Brooklyn while I sleep or work.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@SabinaKnows: At the moment, spending the summer traveling through the Loire Valley, Paris and the French Riviera and doing the opposite of roughing it the entire time.
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @Tammy)
@SabinaKnows: At the moment of writing this – YOU of course. Beyond that I’ll have to say @courtyforrest @coachjennlee and @brycegruber.
OneChicklette: SOON! And I’ve met Courtney. She’s terrific.
@OneChicklette: How many days do you think you would you go without speaking a single word, if you were being paid $100,000 a day for every consecutive day you didn’t speak? (this amazing question came via @BrianSpaeth)
@SabinaKnows: I’d love to say ten days to make it to a million but just thinking about that makes me anxious, and I find it impossible not to talk to or say hello to basically, the everyone.
OneChicklette: via @AndiLavs What was the last kind thing you did?
@SabinaKnows: I’m a big package & letter sender and just today was at the post office sending goodies to my sister (@miraptacin), and my mom (who just kicked cancer’s ass).
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
