Setting a goal for yourself, no matter how small, and achieving it.

2. “Is this it?” by The Greeting Committee
3. “Darling” by Flipturn
What is the best thing you have seen or heard lately?

What I know for sure:
Is that I am a strong woman capable of anything I set my mind and soul to.
And share a fact that you think people probably don’t realize about Macon Magazine.
There are so many different facets to the magazine, and it should take an army to put the whole thing together, but we do it with our small team. I think that makes the magazine more meaningful.
