#GirlsRock: An Interview with Firestarter LLC Founder Frances Reimers

I aim for, oh, 1,300 or so words when I put together these #GirlsRocks posts. Sometimes, that word count doesn’t do it justice. Frances Reimers tested the standard. That’s what happens when you’ve done a few dozen great things – it’s tough to narrow down the line of questioning (you hear me, Joanna Gammon?) Her … Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Firestarter LLC Founder Frances Reimers

Then, she wrote a book about it. Also, she incorporated the word badass into the subtitle, which of course, is badass. Annie’s story … Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Freelance Copywriter Annie Maguire

The winding roads that unfurl before us. We rode them on this trip to Roanoke, descending from the top of Mill Mountain to the stately St. Andrew’s Catholic Church below. We couldn’t see our destination at first, but took faith in the ribbon of the road down the mountain.

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Sports Wanderluster Alicia Barnhart

I don’t care for some of the stuff I find in press boxes. Others, I love. Krispy Kreme donuts, for instance. Some places have those! I also love people I meet, like Stacey Dales and Jackie Servais and Alicia Barnhart. Stacey is my favorite NFL Network reporter (and a Coach Daddy reader.) Jackie, a former volleyball … Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Sports Wanderluster Alicia Barnhart
