One of my favorite summertime invitations is to spend a creative hour with middle school girls at the Golden Isles YMCA Career Camp as they explore a variety of careers during their two-week session. Talented YMCA leadership and community volunteers share their career talents—mine, of course, in the magazine industry.
After sharing information on publishing, writing, marketing, sales, and graphic design, each girl created a personal “quote page” utilizing past Paisley Magazine pages, then we taped them up for all to enjoy. Here is one example: “Don’t let people tell you life is a piece of cake when they haven’t had a slice.” What a fun time we had!
Our JULY issue invites everyone to #liveoutloud. Get ready to meet three of the bravest, no-holds-barred women—and one husband—who live out-loud every day: Gail, Michael, Amanda, and Joy. Their stories are amazing. We’ve “got you covered”—enjoy the read!
Happy Independence Day,
