Evelyn Pelczar is lucky to have all her exes live in Texas so she can spend more time leaving her signature hot pink lipstick stains on the Lavo brunch champagne flutes. Taking on NYC in her 6-inch heels while praying she doesn't get caught in the cobble stones or hit by a taxi, Evelyn enjoys interviewing and finding out the story behind peoples successes while trying to create her own.
The world of start-up companies symbolizes a new shape to the existing business model. Startups are unconventional, unrefined and unorthodox. They’re not afraid to shake up the status quo, to dance between what works and what doesn’t, to rattle the box completely, to flip the working world uncomfortably onto its head. Startups are the reason […]
Eight months ago, I started a company (now, MajorClarity) based on a kind of crappy idea that I had a really tough time articulating. It took a different form or meaning every time I explained it to someone, and no one really knew what we actually were trying to do or how it would become […]
Over the last year, we at Elite Daily have been watching Steelos grow. Steelos is a unique online shop for men with a finger on the pulse of NYC, and it doesn’t look like any other shopping site we’ve ever seen. The site sells many popular brands, mixing high-fashion and street wear, while sticking to […]
I used to be one of those hardcore corporate types. The girl in a pencil skirt and blazer with her work Blackberry either glued to her hand or sitting on the table at all times, including weekends and holidays. I remained rigid in the elevators, kept my head down behind my cubicle and maintained a […]
These three kids combined could become the next Mark Zuckerberg… and they’re still in high school. Last month, New York TechDay brought together 400 exhibitors and 10,000 attendees for a day full of demos, pitches and the opportunity to network with entrepreneurs who believe they have the next big thing. Established companies, like Microsoft, Uber, […]
The sharing economy has become somewhat of a buzzword as of late, prompting discussions of start-up tech culture and alternative ways of working. In a job market where young people are overeducated and have few practical, real-world skills, it’s important to redefine the limitations within which we work and live. The ways in which we […]
Here’s a little something that’ll cheer you up on this Monday morning. It’s Bill Murray sitting on a lawn chair, singing along to Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.” The clip is from Murray’s new movie, “St. Vincent.” In the clip, Murray waters some plants, smokes a cigarette and looks like his effortlessly cool self. […]
Is there anything worse than a bad case of the shoulds? Possibly the hypotheticals or the maybes, but it’s debatable. In my opinion, the shoulds are the worst. Because it’s the shoulds that give you that bloated feeling all day long. Should I wear the pointed heels or the rounded? Should I text him now […]
The automobile, nuclear power and space exploration technologies rank among the top engineering achievements of all time, but it looks like they’re about to be challenged by one unlikely competitor: the Christmas light extension chord. Most phones these days come with a charging cable that measures an industry default of “just short enough,” which means […]
Six weeks into the 2014 season, we’ve seen some unexpected results that have shifted the power balance in the NFC. Most notably, the resurgence of Philadelphia’s rivals in the east to challenge the defending division champs for the crown. Out west, World Champion Seattle Seahawks also have a fight on their hands to reclaim their […]
Last night’s episode of “South Park” took on Lorde and the state of music production as a whole. And boy, did Trey and Matt skewer the music industry in this particular clip. Basically, Randy, with the help of a computer program and autotune, is able to make his terrible, off-key ditties sound just like Lorde […]
Peter Thiel talks fast and he’s deliberate with his words. A man in his position doesn’t want to be misinterpreted. A conversation with him is full of pregnant pauses because he’s thinking — always thinking — and though it’s clear that he’s fully present in the moment, it’s obvious that there’s a lot swirling through […]
