How to Have a Unique Summer

Unique USA

Summer is here and we are ready! Make the most of the next few months by checking out suggestions from The Unique Team!

Go Forth! Visit 3 places you've never been before. Maybe you plan a road-trip to a city or town (Sonja is planning to plot-out a day of antique shopping in nearby small towns, and also plan to go to an area she's never been to in Mexico.). Perhaps you visit a local museum or restaurant that you've never been to. Wherever you go, adventure and new experiences await!

Dance Your Ass Off! Join the Unique team along with our friends at Cocktail Academy & Smilebooth SATURDAYS ALL SUMMER at EL CHAVO DJs will be playing all the Hip Hop, Soul and Top 40 Pop Jams from 10pm-2am

Give Back! I know, I know, summer is for relaxing not volunteering. Wrong! It's the perfect time to dedicate some of your time and expertise to others. Whether you commit a full day to volunteer at a local charity or start volunteering regularly, there are organizations in every city and town that could use your help. 

Get Outside! Take advantage of warm weather and longer nights by taking your usual activities outside. Picnic in the park, attend outdoor movie screenings or concerts and head to the beach to watch the sunset.

Eat Up! Summer is for bbq’s, picnics and farmer’s markets. Take advantage of the seasonal offerings and eat corn off the cob, slice up some watermelon or pineapple and make freshly squeezed lemonade.

Take a Dip! Just because you might not live near the beach doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to cool off. Investigate hotels in your area with amazing pools and dive in.  

#Staycation! Traveling to a tropical destination isn't your only vacation option. This summer, plan a “staycation” and relax unwind within your neighborhood or just within your own four walls.

Get the Popcorn Ready! Summer is a time for Hollywood blockbuster hits and the perfect time to cool off inside a dark air conditioned movie theater. (Bonus if you can find a drive-in!)

6 Financial Tips for 2016

Unique USA

A Guide for Small Business Owners, Entrepreneurs and Freelancers

By Financial Planner and Small Business Consultant Paco Nicole

HAPPY FUCKING NEW YEAR! Congratulations, on surviving another calendar year. It’s no small feat.

The start of the year is a natural inflection point for most of us. We make resolutions and with the beautiful potential of the 12 months that are ahead of us, achieving our goals feels totally and completely within the realm of possibility.

Through my experience working with clients and in firms, I’ve learned the best way to get the most of your year, is to take the time to examine how you did last year and reflect on what you want to achieve this year. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve with a clear vision in mind. So make the time for you and your business. Pause and be mindful about setting things up for a killer 2016.

Here is a list of six things you can do to make sure you start your business on the right foot in 2016. I recommend taking a full day off to go through the steps I’ve outlined below. It’s going to take a lot of mental heavy lifting, but you and your business are worth the investment. In fact, you owe it to yourself.
