Chat Daddy's party

Always support those who support you.  Chat Daddy has come to every party of mine and I was honored to drive to the North side, endure the parking drama and all that goes with getting out, in order to be there for his birthday.  I also supported his call to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, since he's recovered from Leukemia.  Plus, Dad suffers from Lymphoma and the cause is close to my heart.

Chicago's Minority Business

Put issue to bed of Chicago's Minority Business, the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council's newspaper.  Thanks to Cynthia Jordan for her deft management of the project by keeping on deadline and on point.

New week

Always great to get off to a great start for the week. It is not quite 10AM and I've proofed two publications. Lovin' it!

RIO Directory

Working on the Directory for the new team of Region Information Officers for Alpha Kappa Alpha. So exhilarating to see a concept go from an idea to a publication. The ultimate high.

Chicago's Minority Business Newspaper

Despite the PR, the promotions and the special events, my foundational love is writing and editing. That's why I continue to enjoy editing and editorially coordinating Chicago's Minority Business newspaper.

Breaks are good

When attending a conference in a new city, make time to see the sights...break away from the action.  You'll return refreshed and ready to ready to be re-engaged.

Had a great time at the SHOWCASE. The entertainment was fun, the crowd was huge and the atmosphere was electric. I even engaged in "People Watching" as I gawked at the guys in the pink leather zoot suits and the women in their leopard ensembles with all their ASSets showing. But it was fun and the talent was superb.
