When it’s time to say goodbye

My friend Cherylanne (who you met here) recently made the hard decision to close a business. She posted about it on her blog.

As she has for the two-plus decades I have known her, Cherylanne impressed me by how she has approached this experience: Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Sabina Hitchen

How could I not feature someone whose professional title is Chief Excitement Officer?! That’s Sabina aka @SabinaKnows.


Sabina, co-founder of Tin Shingle, is my Brooklyn neighbor. I admire her enthusiasm for entrepreneurship – hers and that of others. Here’s your chance to get to know Sabina.

Twitter Spotlight: Cherylanne Skolnicki

I just don’t even know how to introduce you to Cherylanne Skolnicki aka @NourishTweets aka Canne, which is how she used to sign her name for short when we were in college together at Cornell.

Although we are both only children from Pennsylvania, Cherylanne and I were awfully different as students. She graduated in just three years whereas I slept through almost as many classes as I attended. She cooked amazing, grown-up style meals; I threw together the same one-pot pasta on the nights when I couldn’t talk my roommates into ordering pizza.

But years later, here we are: still friends. I like and admire this smart, kind entrepreneur, wife and mother 100x more than I did back in college (and I already thought the world of her).

Time for you to get to know the brains behind @NourishTweets.

Twitter Spotlight: Carol Blymire

I am so impressed by entrepreneurs. The courage it must take to strike out on one’s own!

Carol Blymire is one of these brave souls. She has her own business.

But thanks to Twitter I also know that she was in a Rush cover band, practices Transcendental Meditation and has a super-cute dog, Dexter.

Twitter Spotlight: Kelly Collis

Isn’t it wild how I keep featuring Washingtonians in the Twitter Spotlight?

It makes me wish that I had done a better job reaching out to these interesting folks during the ten years I lived in DC. Kelly Collis aka @CityShopGirl is someone I’d have enjoyed meeting. An entrepreneur who created CityShopGirl, she worked in marketing and public relations before becoming…a radio personality of all things.

Kelly is still the Publisher of CityShopGirl, but is also the co-host of The Tommy Show, a DC area morning show on 94.7 Fresh FM.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@cityshopgirl:  He must have a passion for life and the energy to keep up with it, a genuine interest in my children and a healthy sex drive.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@cityshopgirl: Witty
