Life, most recently, has been a complete cycle of organized chaos, even more than usual. While I crave hours to do ‘nothing,’ I can’t really complain because I love all of my different projects, and the amazing people and opportunities that have emerged from each turn.
Depending on how you venture over to visit me here, you may or may not have noticed, but I’ve been playing around a bit with the design and layout of this site. This is in part to give it a little facelift that is more relevant to my life right now, and in part out of sheer boredom with the simple template that I had been using to keep things simple.
Right now you’ll see this temporary header which does the job — the ‘for now’ job — of keeping things together, but rest assured, it will change.
I don’t know exactly what it is going to ultimately look like, but you can definitely expect more evolutions over the next month or so, and hopefully a final unveiling of what it will ultimately be.
In addition to, and much more importantly than the appearance of this website, there have been lots of updates and announcements, with still more to come.
First and foremost, I recently joined the awesome corporate team for Fight Gone MAD Inc. as the Director of Social Strategy and Community Development, which could not blend more perfectly with my role as the CMO for our MADass Partnership group and our soon-to-be-opening Fight Gone MAD franchises in Charlottesville and Richmond.
We sent out this update on the FGM corporate blog, and added my bio to the website:
I love the brand (obviously), and could not be happier with all of the people that are a part of the extended family, team, and community. It’s a very exciting time for us all, and the fact that I get to do exactly what I love doing – social media, branding, and community development (read: interacting with all different people + building relationships) is awesome.
Recently I’ve spent a ton of time in Charlotte working on a number of different projects, but right now I’m back in Charlottesville getting ready for the August opening of our FIRST Fight Gone MAD franchise location. This place is going to be amazing, and I’m beyond thrilled that I will finally be able to work out how I want to when I’m at my home base. Richmond is not far behind and I’ll be sure to post updates on it’s progress as we get closer to it’s completion.
While this was all going on I got a little sparse with my blog updates on Fuel Sweat Grow, but there are some up there (some long ones) so head over and check it out if you haven’t visited recently. I also became a #sweatpink Ambassador which is awesome, and an honor to be added to such a great group of active female fitness professionals and addicts.
I’m excited to get more involved in the community and the great opportunities that it presents to connect more nationally as we grow Fight Gone MAD and more focused fitness concepts in general.
And last but not least, I got a little love from my friends over at Cville Niche during the ‘Checking in with the Locals’ feature which is a really fun way to connect with the community and highlight all the different ‘favorites’ people have. You can find that piece here, and get all of the Cville niche updates here.
That’s the quick and dirty on what’s been happening in my world – the details and exciting upcoming announcements will be coming very soon. As will some new outfits for the blog, and hopefully a final style choice. Until then, stay cool my friends.
