We have a new series on the blog this week: the Southern Makers Series. This series highlights creative entrepreneurs—the best and brightest in the South. This week, my blog guests are Cheri Leavy and Whitney Long, founders of the Southern Coterie and creators of the Southern C Summit. The Southern C Summit is tailored to offer community, connection, and collaboration amongst top names in media, branding and blogging. King Bean is a proud sponsor of the Southern C Summit, which will be held February 6-8 on Sea Island, Ga.
