Lili Coffin ~ A Love Affair With #Wine ~ An Introduction

Lili Coffin's World of Wine

My love of affair with wine began when I was 8 years old.

My mother was a child actress on that was then known as the Little Rascals. Being raised in Hollywood, she was taught to enjoy the finer things in life and taught us children to do the same.

For my 8th birthday, she took me alone to the then renowned Brown Derby. I can remember every detail of that evening. I ate sole almondine, as did Mom, I had a Shirley Temple drink as Mom sipped her glass of white wine.

At the close of the meal, the head waiter brought out an enormous pineapple lemon cake. I blew out the candles after I was serenaded by wait staff and celebrities alike.

Everyone was charmed as the cake was distributed throughout the dining room and Mother stood and rose to toast me with that one simple glass of…

Change the Way You Start Your Day

Cperky's Blog

What’s the first thing you do when you get to your desk? Check email and listen to voicemails? This is the worst way to start the workday. Instead of automatically going into reactive mode and focusing on other people’s priorities, begin your day with a brief planning session about what you need to get done.

The moment you sit down, ask yourself:  The day is over and I am leaving the office with a tremendous sense of accomplishment. What have I achieved? Thinking this through will help you distinguish truly important tasks from those that only feel urgent. Determine what to focus on, and then break down these tasks into specific actions and goals. Think about how to prioritize your list, and try starting your day with tasks that require the most mental energy.

Adapted from “How to Spend the First 10 Minutes of Your Day” by Ron Friedman

Love for Empire Avenue

Cperky's Blog

Empire Avenue, affectionately called “The Avenue” ( is best described as a “Social Media stock market”.   It’s currency (eaves) are invested, earned, issued, and paid in developing an Empire Avenue stock portfolio that pays dividends daily.  Just as valuable is the lasting friendships and great relationships that are developed with other players.  Interactions with social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, YouTube, among others are vastly important in playing the game.

I joined “The Avenue” in 2011.   I’ve developed my own strategies over the years and they’ve proven successful.  Even though I’ve been active on the Leader Board and acquired much wealth in eaves, I remind myself that it’s only a game.  And it’s how you play the game that really matters.

The primary opportunities that Empire Avenue offers is exposure to new and interesting people from all walks of life and developing enjoyable/rich…
