Gillian Hicks and Caroline Wyman – owners of Atlanta’s first (’cause we say so) Fashion Truck, GGs Fashion Forward, joined me in studio to talk about starting a business with “no idea what they were doing”, and learning along the way.  They talked about the challenges of finding a truck that would work, as well as having to educate the Atlanta area about what they’re doing.  They also talked about their love of fashion and the new and vintage items they carry.

The two Mom-treprenuers shared their thoughts on work-life balance, partnering with a friend, clearly defining rolls, and doing what you love.  They talked about the private parties (think Pampered Chef, or Silpada jewelry but for clothes – and a local Atlanta company!) they do, as well as the events they participate in, like Roswell’s Alive After 5 (where you will find them tomorrow night!)

Update on #SaveWRAS – Album 88 and the controversy over GSU’s contract with GPB:

The group of alumni, students and volunteers from 88.5 WRAS who stand in opposition to the contract with Georgia Public Broadcasting have put out a press release explaining some of the contracts finer points and why they feel those items are not in the best interest of the students or the station.  They have also requested a meeting with the University President Dr. Mark Becker.
