Meet Paige Petrone of LAArtsOnline.com

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paige Petrone.

Paige, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was previously with Variety and Venice Magazines, I began publishing LAArtsOnline.com monthly in May 2012, over 6 years ago!! LAArtsOnline, yes all one word! I love that the site is the name, the name is the site address. We are a monthly online magazine celebrating the ARTS. We feature what’s HOT in the arts, theatre, film television, music and dining in LA in a monthly format. We publish 29 stories per month.

What accomplishments are you most proud of?
LAArtsOnline.com, of course. That it’s 100% mine, and that I’m able to express myself creatively with the writing on it. My forte is talking (anyone who knows me, knows this!), selling, and promotions, not the writing. So I’m most proud of the writing, as it’s out of my comfort zone.

Past ventures:
I worked in Manhattan for 9 years at publishing and adverting agencies. Moved to LA and have been working and thriving ever since. I love it here. In LA I worked for Condé Nast Publications, Variety, and Venice Magazine for over 10 years!

What advice would you give someone starting out in your field?
Don’t be afraid. Go for it! Even if you are scared.

Where do you find inspiration?
With things around me and the things I experience. I also get inspired out of boredom. haha! I don’t like to be bored.

I like to be on the go go go, and always looking for the next thing to dive in to.

Favorite affirmation, mantra, or quote:
Fail to plan, plan to fail… and hard work pays off!

What causes do you support?
St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital LA, Dog-o-ween (our annual dog parade costume event) and of course all the ARTS organizations in Los Angeles with and through LAArtsOnline.com.

What’s one thing we can do to make the world a better place?
Be kind to one another.

Anything else you want to share about yourself to the world? Fun facts?
I love dogs and have big compassion for all animals. I have also been living at the beach my whole life. Howard Beach NY, Long Beach NY, Santa Monica Beach CA, and Venice Beach CA. I went to high school at Stella Maris High School on Beach 112th Street in Far Rockaway Queens NY. So, you would say that I’m most definitely a beach girl!

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are an arts and entertainment ONLINE (digital) monthly magazine. We celebrate the arts solely.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
To continue to support the arts in Los Angeles.
