Bombshells Making a Big Impact

With only a couple days left in 2011, Shelby Christie, a budding star and entrepreneur in Charlotte, NC, made sure that she ended the year off with a bang hosting her very first Bombshells in the Business event.

Yet, there is an idea that has recently occurred to me; instead of just accepting our blemishes, how about we work on them?

Recently, a close friend of mine aroused me with a realization I probably would’ve never admitted to myself.
