Football 101 series came about when having coffee with my new “Houston Friend” Denise Hadnott. I call her my “Houston Friend” because I’m actually from Detroit and live in Michigan half of the time and the other part of my time is spent here.
By the way, I absolutely LOVE Houston! The weather is awesome, people are great and I’m looking forward to learning more about this great city!
Denise and I were at Starbucks chatting about our careers, projects and we began to talk Football! Yes, not very common for two women in a coffee shop but, when my profession has had much to do with football the past 7 years and Steve’s his entire life, it was a very hot topic of discussion! Especially since Denise isn’t really the “football girl” and had many questions for me about the business, the game, advice on what to do for her son (who loves football).
Her next question was, OK well what about the women? What about the moms?……I then told her about this idea a friend of mine and I had years back, Football 101, a series that would teach women the in’s and out’s of the game of football….needless today, we took that conversation and ran with it!!
I am SO excited about the upcoming event in September!! We have worked really hard to put together something that I promise will be fun, entertaining, educational and of course, wonderful food and company!
I’ll be back next week with a few business tips and some sneak preview of the Football 101 series kickoff event!
