A Night of Art

The two hour event, held at Hope House featured wine, delicious food and artwork from local female artists. Music was provided by Crystal Brown and a special presentation was made by mom, Hope House client and HIV advocate, Jocelyn Meeks.

Amazon’s Past Reveals the Future of FedEx

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
