In the guest chairs:
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!)

In the headlines:
- The chic Atlanta popsicle maker King of Pops has purchased a farm near Douglasville. We’ll tell you what they’re doing with it.
- Coca-cola is upping their investment in Keurig Green Mountain – the coffee pod people.
- And since it is Women on Wednesday – a couple of women in business stories
- Things are heating up in the pay discrimination case brought by Francine Katz against Anhauser-Busch. I call BS on their excuse for not giving her the same title (and therefore the same pay) as her predecessor.
- And the Olsen twins are setting the bar high for other child stars. Instead of embarrassing drug induced shop lifting events (or attempted robbery by the Biebs), they are killing it in the fashion world.
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. To read the press release in its entirety, click here: WRASPressRelease2
