This Just In: Lady Rogue is Awkward on CNN!

Hey guys. Sheesh, the things they don't tell you before you go on live national television!

So, I was super nervous about doing a segment on CNN for their Eatocracy segment. So much so that I didn't want to jinx it by mentioning it ahead of time.

Great artist for original handmade cards - Natalie Crowley

I needed personalized cards for Thank You notes in the night club industry. I contacted Natalie and told her what I had in mind. She created a packet of cards for me at a great price. She's really awesome to work with and very fast at producing them. Keep her in mind if you ever need personalized cards made for your business or personal needs.

The final design is below and links to her profile on LRBN.

But as time passed, I started to realize that I didn't personally need to "be" Lady Rogue ... Lady Rogue could be any of us who are working hard to create our dream futures.

I've gotten a chance to meet so many other amazing Atlanta ladies who are starting their own businesses and should really meet each other. Hence - the Lady Rogue Business… Continue
