July 2015 News from Lisa & We Said Go Travel:
  • I interviewed Kenny Dichter, CEO of Wheels Up in NYC. He is in my latest Wharton Business Magazine article:  Putting People Into Social Media Strategy
  • Ask Men asked me about for dating advice from teenagers: Go on Group dates!
    • Group Dates
      As adults, we may go out with another couple now and again, but for teens, group dating is the norm! “One thing that teens do on dates that adults should do is go out with a group. The stars are great about networking and going to parties as a group. They have a crowd and they easily meet more people. I think adults often want to go out in pairs or individually. I think adults should phone a friend and go with a group,” says Lisa Niver of WeSaidGoTravel, who worked as a set teacher on Nickelodeon’s new show, Bella and the Bulldogs.
    • Thank you to Cadillac, Saveur Magazine and Redbird restaurant. I enjoyed the #RoadToTable Los Angeles event and was honored to receive a social media award!
  • I was inspired by Rabbi Yoshi’s sermon at Stephen Wise Temple about the Three Lessons from the Grasshopper.
  • I sailed the night away with Harrah’s Southern California
  • What do you think Congress should do about the Iran Nuclear Agreement?
