You do get to a certain point in life where you have to realistically, I think, understand that the days are getting shorter, and you can’t put things off thinking you’ll get to them someday. If you really want to do them, you better do them. There are simply too many people getting sick, and sooner or later you will. So I’m very much a believer in knowing what it is that you love doing so you can do a great deal of it.
To Vie For Co-founder & CEO Melanie Moore
Shopping has never been so entertaining and addictive until now. To Vie For, an online shopping game that allows you to bid on THIS season’s hottest luxury items, is a new way to experience retail combining consumers’ love of games and fashion. Using purchased credits, you can bid on a limited number of popular in-season goods such as the coveted Mulberry Alexa bag or Marc Jacobs quilted leather purse, waiting for the price you want to vie for an item before it sells out. A winner of the NYU Stern Business School Competition, the company recently launched in fall 2010 at Techcrunch Disrupt. In my personal conversation with To Vie For’s CEO and Co-founder, Melanie Moore provides a refreshingly honest account of her experience of launching a company while transitioning co-founders, her opinion on getting an MBA, and her reasons for leaving her investment banking gig to discover her true calling as an entrepreneur.
