  • Claire Bahn on This Week in Startups- What I Learned

    Last month, I had the privilege of being a guest on Jason Calacanis’ Podcast and YouTube show, This Week in Startups. Jason Calacanis is a technology entrepreneur and angel investor who routinely interviews startup founders to discuss ideas and ways to expand their existing business. For those of you who don’t know, I run my own business called Online Profile Pros. We work with our clients to set up all of their online profiles, whether it’s LinkedIn, Tinder, or Instagram. Even with fifteen years of experience in branding, I knew that getting an outsider’s perspective could help my business take off. As I mentioned in the interview, OPP has serviced over 2,000 entrepreneurs and influencers with profit margins at 30%. Not bad, but I felt that it lacks the hype it needs to propel forward. Speaking with Jason Calacanis on This Week in Startups has been an eye-opener. We’ve learned… Read More

  • How to Get the Most Out of Your Summer Before It’s Over

    Today, I’m talking about how to get the most out of your summer.  So I know that technically that Labor Day is not the last day of summer, the official last day of summer is Monday, September 23.   However, for many summer will end because school starts or the weather changes and starts feeling more like fall. So how can you get the most out of summer during the last weeks of summer? Start by making a list of all the things you may want to do.  Then weed out any items that you won’t be able to accomplish because of budget, timing, weather, etc and add them to a maybe list. Get your family and friends involved.  Everything is always more fun when you get more people involved right?  Find out who wants to join you on your adventures.   Find out what adventures your friends and family want to… Read More

  • My Favorite Refreshing Summer Cocktail: The Afternoon Tea

    Imagine a warm summer day and you’re sitting on the porch or deck with a few friends and you wish you had a refreshing summer cocktail to sip while hanging out. Never fear Claire is here to the rescue! Every now and then I like to take some outside classes, and a few I’ve attended are some mixology courses.  Why not learn how to make something tasty from the experts?! At a recent class they were teaching the different types of drinks to make for hot summer nights.  One of the drinks that caught my interest was one called “Afternoon Tea”. The mixologist teaching the course kept referring to it as a “Porch Pounder”.  I didn’t really get it until I tasted it and then it all made sense.  Basically, a porch pounder is a light and refreshing drink that can be enjoyed in high quantities…..not that you would, of… Read More

  • Things to Do in Napa Valley- Where to Go, Eat and Sleep

    If you’ve seen my Instagram, you know that I went to Napa Valley earlier this month.  I have to say that going to Napa with my husband was such an amazing trip for me.  I went to Napa with a friend and it was fun, but I really wanted to experience it with my husband.  Not only is Napa romantic, but it’s such a beautiful place to experience with someone you love…..and I learned so much. Many people think that going to Napa Valley is just about drinking lots of wine. Well, for some it is, but for us we loved learning about how wine was made and how each one is different, in addition to tasting many wines. It’s actually inspired me to take some classes in wine making. What I have to say next may make you sad…..going to Napa Valley on a tight budget is hard.  Many of the… Read More
