Go West, Young Lady!: How a Native New Yorker Relocated Across the Hudson

Hey, there! I’m Victoria but everyone calls me Vix and I’m the Social Surveyor. WTF does that mean and WTF should you care? You should care because I’m on a mission to bring you the best of what New Jersey has to offer -- in the growing communities of Hoboken, Jersey City, Newark and Montclair -- while helping you get the life and career of your dreams.

It’s not easy, right? We’re millennials -- we value experiences, we graduate with student loan debt the size of a mortgage and we are hustling, hard. We are trying to live while learning what exactly life is all about.

I spent the first decade of my adult life yearning to be in Manhattan and when I finally got there? I worked so much that I could hardly enjoy it. Now, that’s not to say I didn’t have any fun, but the fun I had was planned, focused and not as frequent as I would have liked.

As I grew in my career, I had more time to explore and explore I did! I walked up and down the island, exploring every nook and cranny, diving into familiar places and embarking on Saturdays of self-discovery… it was truly wonderful.

When I launched my first business in 2015, I lost a piece of myself. I was so focused on creating a company that would change the way digital agencies functioned that I forgot to take the time to look up and out. It was successful… really, really successful. And it continues to be successful to this day (so much so that I opened another branch and did a total rebrand this year).

But there’s more to life than a job title or a paycheck.

As I enter this new decade in a new zip code, I’m exploring and taking you along for the ride. This site is dedicated to highlighting some of the coolest experiences out there, profiling the interesting people I meet along the way and, maybe, just maybe, helping open your eyes to a new way of life as mine have been opened.

Growth isn’t easy, but it is necessary.

And I invite you to glow in the growth with me.
