Change is good. And in the past year, we’ve undergone several. In an effort to take our organization to a new level, I had to make some important decisions. One was to redesign and rebrand our sister flagship publication, Atlanta Home Improvement. With a modified name, refreshed look and new editorial purpose, we now produce bi-monthly issues with monthly distribution.
The other was to welcome Laura J. Downey who serves as our company’s managing editor. She brings with her more than 15 years of editorial experience (including PEOPLE magazine and Forbes Travel Guide) to Best Self Atlanta, My Home Improvement (formerly Atlanta Home Improvement), and our six hyperlocal magazines—My Alpharetta, My Buckhead, My East Cobb, My Intown, My Sandy Springs, and My Vinings/Smyrna.
We’re excited about these hyperlocal magazines because each one is 100 percent dedicated to neighborhood-specific content to help its residents live their best lives. As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of these quarterly magazines, toast with us as we commemorate the one-year anniversary of Atlanta Best Media. As the company continues to grow, we are optimistic about its future.
We just wrapped a successful 30 Days of Healthy, Beautiful Skin Blog and Facebook Live Series for Best Self, which engaged more than 14,000 unique views and countless shares and likes. And we now invite you to join us in June as we embark on another Facebook Live and Blog Series but this time, it’s 30 Days of Home Remodeling.
One decision can impact your entire life. Each decision I’ve made for the company is a testament to embracing change and growth. The road hasn’t always been smooth but it’s been worth it. If you’re contemplating making a change, be brave! Don’t let the fear of change alone stop you. Get after it. Life is too short not to.
