SEATTLE VLOG (pt.4): Bainbridge Island, Bruciato, Space Needle, Sushi Kashiba, Airbnb and Cat Drama

This is my second time in Seattle, but Addison’s first, so we went to the highlights of where I went last time and all of the places on my bucketlist! This was right after our Vancouver trip, so definitely check those vlogs out! We checked out Starbucks Reserve, Bainbridge Island, Bruciato, Space Needle, Waterfront Trail, Wasabi Sushi and Izakaya, Dough Zone, shopping, Sushi Kashiba, Top Pot Doughnuts, Din Tai Fung and Centurion Lounge in this vlog! We also had a little scare with our cats back at home that were so smart and jumped up to open the office door that they weren’t supposed to be into…

Aparna Srinivasan: SpotOn.Pet Founder, Tech Entrepreneur, Dog and Pig Owner | WOMEN OF INSPIRATION

As a cat owner, cat sitter, woman in tech, and entrepreneur, I have a deep appreciation for Aparna and SpotOn for the value and solution it provides for me as someone who always has a need to transport cats! I sit down with Aparna (and her pet pig!) for this episode. SpotOn.Pet is a ride-hailing transportation app for pets and pet-parents. The app connects you with trusted drivers that will take your pet anywhere, with or without you being present. From airports, to parks, & even vet visits, you can only phone a friend so many times or pay hundreds for a car service, to carry your pet safely to where they need to go. I go through Aparna’s experience as CEO and founder of SpotOn.Pet as well as the future of SpotOn.Pet!

Google NYC Office: Noogler Lessons Learned

I took @addisonjchen to the Google office! We’re finally allowed social guests in the NYC office! Took this photo at the rooftop terrace on 9th Ave’s 14th floor with sweeping views of NYC skyline and beautiful weather.

Lessons I learned so far:
⭐️ Embrace being new! Being an experienced hire this time around, I felt pressured to know a lot on the get go, but it’s okay to just start all over! Every company does things differently and take your time.
⭐️ Explore and learn as much as you can! The offices, the culture, the people, the work, the crossfunctional teams, the workshops and courses, everything!
⭐️ It really is what you make of it! If you are not proactive, there will be missed opportunities. Jump on it and ask what you can work on or try out or even shadow before being asked to!

Lots more coming in a video soon!

Work Day In My Life as a Google Solutions Architect in NYC | Working From Home, Cats, Broadway Show

I finally have ramped up to client work after 3-4 months of being a Noogler (but we’re all technically still Nooglers!) as a Google Advertising Solutions Architect in Google Shopping, and this is an accurate depiction of my work day in my life at home at work, being a cat sitter and a cat parent, and going out for the Broadway Show, POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive at night! Thank you, Hydragun, for sponsoring this video!

Hydragun was perfect for me as someone who is always on the go in the office, around the city as a big walker, and also as someone who works from home at a desk. It’s surprisingly quiet that no one heard me through my work calls, and there are so many applicators depending on where you would want to use your Hydragun and also if you wanted to apply lotions and oils as well!
