You came, you saw, you conquered: #AWBU

It’s tough to convey how much I loved every second of last weekend. In the middle of 2010, I assaulted the ladies (Steph, Julie & Fawn) of Arkansas Women Bloggers – a little site over on Blogspot at the time. Nada. Crickets. Months went by, and I mounted my assault again. Fawn called me, and…

For the love of startups and great ideas

The Tech Adventure Club concept is a strong one, but sometimes it takes others discovering a thing for it to achieve its potential.

Storytelling

We have been meeting with some fantastic businesses about partnerships, collaboration with Arkansas Women Bloggers and other special projects.  Just this week, we got to spend a little time with the phenomenal team members at The Communications Group in Little Rock, an innovative thinker at the Arkansas Farm Bureau and the inspiring leader of an…
