    Interesting Year of Networking and Continuous Open Bidding (C.O.B.)
    I have been consulting Moms (and some Dads) and their daughters for many years now.  I am truly thankful to all of my past and present clients!  You all have become friends and I always love hearing from you!  You certainly serve as a bright spot in my day!  Nothing makes me more joyful than to have young ladies happily placed in a sorority home!  This certainly gives me job fulfillment!  It opens up a whole new world for the girls and gives their Moms/Dads/families peace of mind (me too)!  When

    Positive Mindfulness!
    There seems to be a new buzz word out there among people in all walks of life. Mindfulness... in simple terms, it has to do with being in the moment. It seems we are a society of multi-taskers. Are we doing so many things at one time that we are not really paying attention to what we are doing? This conjures up images of a person going around and around in circles. A never ending cycle to the daily treadmill. Between technology demands, and teens thinking that texting is actually having a

    Happiness is a busy fall!
    Rushbiddies reached a milestone this fall!  A record  number of girls seeking our help! But the best news of all, they are ALL happily placed in their new sorority "home!"  I have adored working with these remarkable young ladies!  Thanks to technology, I am able to really get to know these lovely PNMs and their families, and it is extremely rewarding to help them navigate their recruitment!  It was such a pleasure to coach them through one of the most taxing processes they have ever faced!

    Spring has sprung? Change is in the air!
    Life is nothing if it is not in a constant state of flux! Right? That is a philosophy I try to live by!  It can be a challenge!  Change is inevitable!  Our seasons predictably change, but the weather it brings, especially in the South, can be quite unpredictable!  So we take comfort in knowing with spring the flowers will bloom!  However, we also know with spring, the tornados can come too!  We embrace the good and prepare for the bad!  Still, at the same time wanting to believe that life is

    Fall and "Early Bird" on the Horizon!!
    It seems that everything revolves around the weather! We in the south can probably attribute that mind-set to the agrarian roots most native families share! Perhaps even many generations back!  Late summer and early fall have rapidly expired!  I am just waiting for the elusive "cool snap" to show up again!  This is the winding down of my busiest time of the year! Thankfully, most of our Rushbiddies' girls have gotten placed.  If they did not find their "spot" in formal recruitment, it seems that

    Sorority as your home away from home...
    These last few months have been a whirlwind of Panhellenic recruitments across the country!  Fall recruitments are finally coming to a close, and we are now getting ready for the second semester winter recruitments! Please let me say how much I have loved getting to know so many fabulous Moms and daughters! What a blessing to see so many happily placed girls! I rejoice in every happiness with each Mom and daughter, (Dads too)!   (Btw...thank you all for sending me so many beautiful, smiling

    PREPARATION! Know what you stand for and how to live it out!
    Congratulations to all my second semester girls who have happily found their sorority home!  If you are a young woman in high school who is considering taking part in sorority recruitment, when you attend college, my one word of advice is PREPARATION!  Preparation is key to the process! Please consider letting Rushbiddies help you navigate the process of dos and don'ts.  Look for our Spring workshop coming soon!  With preparation in mind, I was recently reminded of a radio interview I did with

    I believe in second chances!!!
    We have been so excited and happy for ALL of our RB girls!  They have ALL been happily placed in their sorority homes this fall! CONGRATULATIONS!!! It is such a fabulous feeling to know you were able to help someone successfully navigate through this oft daunting recruitment process! Most of you have already been on your new member retreat, or formally 'pledged,' or you are just about to receive your new member pin, or even your big sister!  Regardless of where you are in your new member

    I get hopeful this time of the year!  (Even with the ice and snow still gathering!)  Preview Saturday is coming up this weekend, February the 28th at the University of Alabama!  My Bama girls are getting excited and filled with anticipation!  To Bama's credit, this is a wonderful tool and introduction to the college sorority recruitment process!  It helps the girls, just a bit, to demystify the expectations and recruitment procedures.  Plus, it helps Moms and Dads to understand, a little better,
