Act 1, Scene 1


a goal without a plan is just a wish.
antoine de saint-exupéry

Life changes. Good things happen, and bad things happen. To all of us.

What’s your story?

I’m launching this blog with a purpose – to share my passion for communications. To tell great stories, and comment on how to tell them better.

I am a writer and communicator. I work behind the scenes. My background is in public relations – corporate, non-profit and business-to-business. After three years at a large Atlanta agency, I was laid off. I jumped into freelance projects and contemplated work/life balance. I slowly realized something that has since been better explained by Gary Vaynerchuk in his new book, Crush It:

love your family.

work superhard.

live your passion.

Why do we fight against our work life? Why don’t more people go after their goals? Why do we settle?

If being laid off doesn’t force questions like these, I don’t know what will.

So, what are my goals? To be true to myself. To be authentic. To become a more effective communicator. To build a business based on collaboration and partnership with clients. To never stop learning. To enjoy my work.

My plan? Connect with people and organizations that have passion, and help them communicate that passion better. Learn as much as possible about communication, networking, and building communities both online and offline. Listen. Share.

Interested in coming along for the ride?

You can expect:

  • a dose of southern flair
  • the honest opinions of a gen y-er
  • a little life mixed with work

The journey is just beginning. I hope you will come back for more!

  1. How beautiful! And how blessed are you to learn at a much younger age than I the wisdom of your words?
    We have much in common, my darling sister in Christ. Much.
    I admire, respect and now pledge my passionate support of your newest venture.
    Words fascinate me. They hold such power. Good and evil. Commanding them is a lost art. I look forward to learning from and walking along with you.
    I am proud to have you in my life.
