Think About This: "When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid." ~ Audre Lorde
Columbia, SC, is not only the state capital, but its also home to the University of South Carolina, which had claim to the USC moniker before LA’s institution of higher learning made such a splash. JIM HAYS knows such local info, and a whole lot more. Good thing he’s staying in the market, although he has a new gig. Jim’s new biz card, both electronic and paper, reads Marketing Manager for legendary WIS-TV, the Raycom NBC affil. For the last few years, Jim had been at the Gannett CBS affil, so the whole new job thing does not require a moving van nor endless boxes to unpack. Cool. Jim is a NC boy who has lived many places while growing up and in his TV career, including gorgeous Asheville, Chapel Hill, Greenville SC and even three years in Little Rock, Arkansas. Well Dunne! Jim.

A belated birthday wish to Well Dunne! Talent’s MELISSA EDRIS. Yes, you’ve heard her voice is you’ve heard a Sprint commercial in the last several years. Here’s to a marvelous year ahead for the lovely Melissa.
Think About This: "It is hard to let old beliefs go. They are familiar. We are comfortable with them and have spent years building systems and developing habits that depend on them. Like a man who has worn eyeglasses so long that he forgets he has them on, we forget that the world looks to us the way it does because we have become used to seeing it that way through a particular set of lenses. Today, however, we need new lenses. And we need to throw the old ones away." ~ Kenich Ohmae
