The Unpaid Internship Debate

I’m in a catch-22 situation when it comes to interns. I could genuinely use the help, and there are plenty of students and young professionals out there willing to do an unpaid internship.

Generally speaking, the projects I would use interns for …Read More

A role model for aspiring female sports broadcasters

I am proud to call Rachel Baribeau my friend. Not only is she an amazingly talented broadcaster for ACC Network and Sirius/XM College Sports Nation, she’s one of the most genuine and selfless people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

The Challenges of Freelance Writing

I’ve been freelance writing for magazines like Woman’s Day, Men’s Health, and Parents (and their accompanying websites) for a couple of years now. Until last October, I was freelancing because I love to write. The extra cash went straight into our wedding fund, but it wasn’t something I needed to survive.
