Why Start My Own
I’ve always wanted to – ever since I can remember. Growing up in Charlotte, NC my parents took frugality to another level. Like over the cliff ya’ll so with no cable or internet (didn’t exist when I was growing up), I turned to listening to the radio. It would fill my head with stories and images of what the world had to offer and I would randomly call disc jockeys on-air just to connect the stories with a voice. In college I had my radio show but when I graduated didn’t know how to take that love and make a career out of it. Moved to Atlanta, got a job at Turner Broadcasting and life took over..
Fast forward after getting married, having a son, a move to Seattle and back to Atlanta, I remember vividly the day I dropped my son in his Kindergarten class and thinking, “Now what?” That led to connecting to stories again and this time through writing. I began interviewing/profiling visionary, powerful leaders whose voice was their greatest strength in their success. Their voice led them to achieve the pinnacle in their endeavors and I knew that I wanted to share those stories on a larger, more conversational platform.
