There was a nice write-up this week in NYDN‘s “New York @Confidential” about Elizabeth Chan, a former Condé Nast employee who has found quick success as a Christmas music singer-songwriter. Her single “Fa La La” is climbing the holiday charts, while nine of a staggering 300 Chan songs were recently licensed for possible use in the Kardashian sisters’ E! December 1 Christmas special.
Kickstarter played a key role in Chan’s bold new career, but so too did Mediabistro. While at Condé Nast, where she was an executive producer-director of integrated marketing for Self magazine and a consumer business development consultant, Chan liked to peruse our website.
“I found a link that asked something along the lines of, ‘What is the one dream you’ve had that you were too afraid to try? What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?’”
