This Just In…I’m Front Page News in the Windy City!

25 02 2011

Wednesday, I was interviewed by Jackie Tithof Steere from ChicagoNow, owned by The Chicago Tribune Media Group. The article appeared yesterday — front page news! Check it out! The link, and note from Jackie, are below. A special thanks to Jackie, who has been tweeting and retweeting my message all over tarnation! You go, girlfriend!


P.S. Oprah: Call me! We have a lot to talk about!

Hi Amy,

Here is a link to the story on ChicagoNow. If you are able to look within the next hour, it is on the front page of ChicagoNow ( under Recent Posts.

With all of your terrific answers, I thought it would read best like a Q&A.

Hope something wonderful comes of it. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks very much and take care. I’ll be keeping up with things on your blog. 🙂


For those of you who’d rather copy and paste the link, here it is:

Of course, true to my lack of technological skills I can’t find the article. I found the page, but you were not under recent posts. AAARGHH! But I am certain you were dynamic, engaging and wonderful. The Windy City….what next, who knows! I wouldn’t rule out Oprah.

Amy: Great interview. I believe too – also that all your answers will have a great impact on someone out there. I love your blog. It really makes me know who you are, not just Jodi’s friend, but my friend, too. Take care of yourself and see you at the Fundraiser.

I wrote a note to Jackie extolling your virtues (Don’t be concerned, I left a few things out.) and got a very nice note in return. You really impressed her–but you already knew that–and, nobody would expect anything else.
