Monday, March 6th at 7:00pm on my Not Your Boyfriends Radio Hour show airing LIVE on Charlotte Community Radio, I am talking to two women who have one of the most coveted jobs in the marketplace today, blogging. I think most people secretly believe they have what it takes to start or blog or wish they had a  blog. There are a select few that follow through and even fewer that find success. These two Charlotteans have vastly different audiences, background, and content but both have found that magical formula that keeps people interested in their posts.

Chloe Massey aka A Queen City Girl balances her burgeoning career as an accountant, keeping up with her blog posts, and staying up with all the latest fashion and beauty trends. Her Instagram following boasts over 7 thousand. Chloe is a Mooresville native with a passion for fashion, numbers, and her new puppy, Jax.

Jennifer Hurvitz Weintraub, aka The Truth Hurvitz, is a Detroit native with a sharp tongue and a unique point of view. Jen moved down to Charlotte with her now (ex) husband. Jen was inspired to start a blog when she found herself in unfamiliar territory, single, and without her support system. Her blogs touch on a myriad of topics from entering the dating world again, co-parenting, and balancing a flourishing writing career.

Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour Feb 6th: Laurie Carson Berzack, Carolinas Matchmaker

We just passed the second biggest “Single Awareness Day” of the year New Year’s Eve and now the #1, Valentine’s Day, is right around the corner. So I have decided to bring in the big guns, Laurie Carson Berzack, owner and president of Carolinas Matchmaker and Executive Jewish Matchmaker at Chai Expectations. She was recently voted one of the top 5  matchmakers in the world by the iDate Awards.

Laurie started her matchmaking service in 2006 when she saw a need for it in Charlotte and wanted to make her life’s passion her work. Laurie’s track record is astounding, 4 out of 5 of her matches find commitment within the first year

Matchmaking has had a very colorful history and continues to be a source of fascination for me. Beginning in the 16th century with arranged marriages and dowries, to spiritual leader doing set-ups, and now we have dating apps and websites.

I am hoping Laurie can help us make sense of it all and talk about the alternatives to online dating. She brings years of expertise, passion, and research to the table and along with being a matchmaker, she is a relationship expert. So if you find yourself single at the moment or not, join me during my Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour show on Monday, February 6th at 7:00pm LIVE via Charlotte Community Radio as I believe my talk with Laurie will be valuable to you.

I am honored to be emceeing this event and excited to take a peek back into the world of Charlotte’s comedy scene.
