Rise and Shine with Peelaways

 #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino sits down with Maxwell Cohen so he can tell us all about his skyrocketing product Peelaway Labs.

He saw a problem, so he created a solution. Max Cohen, previously seen on Shark Tank, was once a small business entrepreneur and now has successfully become a life changing contributor to the home health aid and potty training industry. His product, Peelaway Labs, allows you to have clean sheets in seconds. All you have to do is ‘peel away’ the top layer of your multi-functional bed sheet and you’re all done! These fitted sheets are made of soft, absorbent and waterproof material, making you ready for a good night’s sleep. This sheet is made in all sizes and for all uses! Whether it be used for personal or professional use.

Lisa Marie’s wardrobe has been provided by Suitableyou. 


Be Kind on National Random Acts of Kindness Day

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams.

National Random Acts of Kindness Day first originated in Colorado in the mid-90’s and has become so popular that even people in New Zealand engage in kindness based festivities. The purpose of this day is to influence kindness to become the norm, not the exception. Acts of kindness come in all sizes and everyone has their own idea of what it means to be kind. 

Being kind is so easy! Use your phone to make someone else smile by:

Strengthening Your Relationships – 

  • Send a text to someone you love just to let them know you are thinking of them. 
  • Video Chat with one of your friends while they wait for the train.
  • Make a funny video of you singing and send it to a friend.

Charity From Your Phone

  • Donors Choose – Fund teachers to help solve issues in the classroom, create projects and enhance a child’s education. 
  • Kiva – Help those who help you by crowdfunding loans to individuals who are making there community a better place.   

Here at Hip New Jersey we celebrated Random Act of Kindness Day by anonymously leaving each other notes expressing how thankful we are for each other. Check out our social media to see photos of what went on in the office in light of this holiday!

Here at #HipNJ, we strongly support and encourage personal and business growth in women everyday!

ETTWomen, co-created by Lynette Barbieri and Vanessa Coppes, also has the same vision and was created to encourage and inspire other women to start their own businesses. Vanessa Coppes stopped by the #HipNJ studio to talk with our Lisa Marie Latino about their exciting event happening on March 1 – 3, the Power of Connections Conference

“One of the things that we love about ETTWomen is watching business owners flourish. It’s like watching a flower grow!” Vanessa gushed.

ETTWomen has recently opened their own headquarters, located in Morganville. This space doubles as the headquarters of the ETTWomen Foundation, which is a NJ non-profit organization dedicated to offering financial, educational, and planning assistance to female victims of domestic violence, as well as emotional, sexual, or financial abuse. This cozy, comfortable environment is open for members to utilize as well.

“This is a place for women to come to find a welcoming space to either tackle their to-do lists in peace or engage in discussions with other like-minded entrepreneurs,” explained Vanessa. “It is so vital for women to have their own space and be able to dedicate time and passion to their craft.”

In addition to her work at ETTWomen, Vanessa is the founder of V+Co Consulting. For ten years, V+CO has helped to successfully launch the online presence of magazines, businesses and entrepreneurs.

From March 1 – 3, ETTWomen will be holding a weekend retreat for networking and various business workshops at the Asbury Hotel. The The Power of Connections conference will feature bonding, strengthening, and more fun that you cannot miss! To learn more about signing up for the retreat, visit ETTWomen.com. There you can also discover tips and networking advice and workshops.
