By now, you’ve no doubt seen and heard the viral #SELFIE music video, a song that pokes fun at an entire generation’s selfie-taking obsession. Local ‘momtrepreneur’ Joy Jones, decided–perhaps quite serendipitously–to launch her new product, the Shelfie, around the same time the video came out.

Creating Waves of Online Change at Max Radio of the Carolinas

The Outer Banks of North Carolina might as well be my second home. Ever since I can remember, my family would take an annual vacation to Corolla or Duck on the northern beaches.

It’s Hip To Be Richmondmom

When I first met Kate Hall three or four years ago, I already knew we had a lot in common. As the founders of two local publications (myself with Downtown Short Pump and Kate with RichmondMom.com), we clicked and became friends almost instantly. Over the years, we ended up partnering on a number of projects, […]
