Young Achiever

I met Kerrie Phipps in June of last year. Over the last 6 months she has been an amazing support and such a great resource.

Kerrie has just begun the “Young Achievers” giveaway which is an amazing idea Kerrie launched 6 weeks ago that puts the spotlight on Young people doing good things!

I am so honoured to be one of the people featured and you can read my story here

Week 6 – Grace Mills

Office Warming Party

First I would like to thank every body who came to help us celebrate us moving into our new office space. It was a raining day and we all really appreciate you making your way over and I hope that everyone had a great time.

 

Here are some snapshots of the evening!

Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day to my Dad.

Who is the most Eccentric, impossibly optimistic ( even when it defies all logic), creative, talented, spontaneous, ingenious and hard to reach on the phone 6 year old I have ever met.


Not many kids get to run companies with their Dads… I certainly didn’t mean to. And it wasn’t always easy (it was never easy) But it was great. I didn’t grow up with Dad around when I was little, but I grew because of him when I was older. Some of the things he did I didn’t always understand, but looking back a lot of it was for the best.

I am who I am today because of him, in business and in life. Even if I learned that by getting wasted with him on the lower east side, eating 4am baklava then going to a speakeasy to drink rum hidden through the back of a sandwich shop and both getting up to be fabulous at a 7am meeting.

 

He showed me a part of life I never thought I would experience, and we get closer every day. I never thought I would have the relationship I do now and am so grateful after going through so much together from tough times in the company, to the police showing up to get me in the Hamptons…¬†we can still come out the other side with smiles on our faces and knowing that it all brought us closer together

Happy Fathers day.

 

 

 

Bit more American Story # 2

Ah 2009.

Well after a brief visit to the land of OZ I came back and continued in digital media and also started a show called No No Nanette… I was Nannette.. who was a girl who had this guy chasing after her but she didn’t want to settle down and wanted to go to atlantic city and get wasted pfft totally wrong character right?

I met some of my closest friends during this production and we had some great times up in trump tower and at webster hall…

 

Started working with a record label that won’t be named…. but massive fail.

Still living in Harlem in the kids bedroom…. this is a picture from one of my morning walks

 

We got a dog named Teddy who is a rescue dog and has impaired motor skills and walks like he is drunk

One day the whole family got arrested… in Jersey… afterwards we went drinking at the Diner…. it was mothers day

Looking back on my twitter we spent a lot of time in the Hamptons in 2009…. here is some of what happened

I got Vegas the dog…. but that is a whole other blog. I am going to do a blog dedicated to just her…

We did halloween this year…. 3 times over

I was a bi-polar bear.

I got a tattoo

Cause I was so tough after i got a tattoo… I decided to join a rock band. It was great. We played once before the band broke up after recording the album.

OMG SNOW… ughhhhhhhhh snow. I dislike snow…. greatly. Clearly I dress for the occasion.

When it snows in NYC….. its gross. It turns to slush, its slippery and everything just frikkn stops.

 

 

Florida vacation

Florida vacation

One day Dad woke up and decided we were going to go to disney world! This was such an amazing trip. We drove down through georgia and stayed there the night, which was absolutely gorgeous! Such a lovely place, lots of soul food! Went down to Orlando and did Disney world which allowed me to be a kid for the week! I cried at the castle (yeahh judge). So beautiful!

This morning I decided to go into Real Estate

Off to Real Estate school. I am going to become a Real Estate agent.

No but really.

For some time we have been working on a project with CBS called Eye On Real Estate. It needs agents and someone to run it so TADA.

Fast forward a bit. So I got m y Real Estate license, sold a few houses, learned what I needed to about Real Estate Law, licensing in most of the states of the USA, how warped NY Real Estate is, and how business works at the top. Well at least te way I saw it looking.

I also went and got licensed in Florida in anticipation of the company opening there while managing the New York brokerage ready for the launch of Distributed Real Estate.

In the first week of launch we were on Fox news, in crains, in the real deal, and in A LOT of trouble with CBS.

HA I found one of the articles

So Mum and I are in Vegas…yada yada linkin park

We stayed in Paris the first night.. went out drinking..

Then the next night.. went out drinking, found a guy at Karaoke.. he proposed.. I said yes, Mum said I will witness.. Mum got bored went home, we went swimming in the Bellagio water fountain. Well.. we tried. His name was Jason and he had a highly respected job at a local strip club.

The next night we went to a show at Planet Hollywood. I was a bit cranky because I was hungry, and there were all these OTHER people in my casino.. anyway this guy comes up beside me.. how is your night, getting up to much? No,.. I’m going to find some food. (Awesome Gracie.. make yourself look fat while your at it.. ) Oh.. well you should come drink with us at Pure… Me- Nah, I’m here with my Mum and we have kind of reached drinking capacity for the weekend…
I start to get a feeling we are being followed. … we are… 3 security guards and an entourage..

It was the lead singer of Linkin Park… and they were hosting the biggest party in Vegas that night at Ceasars… Sigh. He was gone by the time I realised.
