Girlfriendology video interview with PAULA YOO, author of "Good Enough"

Good Enough, by Paula Yoo - guest on Girlfriendology videoAt first I thought, a ‘young adult’ novel. I don’t need to read that. Then I opened it up and became enthralled with Patti Yoon, the high schooler, daughter of immigrants and overachiever who longs to fit in and strives to stand out.

The first novel by PAULA YOO, Good Enough” is a charmer. From her first big crush to the funny antics of her church group, she becomes a fun character to watch over as she survives high school and the pressure to attend an ivy league school.

Paula’s pretty much a charmer too. She has a great smile and plays amazing violin. She is friendly and easy going. You can tell in the video interview, that she enjoyed writing about Patti and that you’ll equally enjoy reading Good Enough.” Watch the Girlfriendology interview with Paula:


THANKS Paula – for your time, for playing the violin over and over again in the Joseph-Beth store (Thanks to them too!). Thanks to Greg & Greg of And, THANKS to you for reading Girlfriendology!

Girlfriend Interview with PAULA YOO, author of "Good Enough"

Maybe it is my denial of my real age, but I fell in love with the new teen novel, GOOD ENOUGH, by Paula Yoo. Her main character, Patti, is an overachiever who longs to fit in and strives to stand out. Funny, touching, sweet and silly, we can all relate to Patti and her life (even if high school was a few decades ago!).

I had the honor of doing a video interview with Paula last night at Joseph-Beth Booksellers on her national book tour. The video will be up in the coming week (a little grace time for my editors!), so come back and view the energy, music and humor of this fun author! Thanks Paula! (And check out GOOD ENOUGH!)

Inspirational Girlfriend – JENNIFER DAVIS, Director of Beaded Hope

Beaded Hope - look good, do good, give hope

“You don’t have to be Bono or Oprah to make a big change in the world.” Jennifer Davis

Jennifer Davis is a mom, wife, beader and girlfriend. She also (INHO!) is an “Oprah” or “Bono.”

A few years ago she decided she need to do more, she wanted to make the world a better place for her children and others. She started BEADED HOPE as a non-profit organization to employ women in AIDS-rampaged South Africa to create beautiful beaded jewelry, accessories, ornaments and home decor. Through trips and calls to South Africa and in working together she developed friendships with the women who had no other opportunities to earn money to feed their families. And, she has built the business of Beaded Hope to return the profits to support medical supplies in South African.

I had the privilege of interviewing Jennifer recently and discussing Beaded Hope with her at Red Tree Gallery (in Cincinnati). Watch the video to see the beautiful person who is making a difference in this world as well as the beautiful beaded items created by Beaded Hope ‘girlfriends’ in South Africa.

And, as a bonus for Girlfriendology, Jennifer is offering at 15% discount on Beaded Hope items until June 1. Just enter the promotional code: “GOGIRL” Thanks Jennifer! (Oprah would be proud of you!)


Thanks also to Red Tree Coffee Shop and Art Gallery, as well as the Gregs of CallGregCreative!

Meet my girlfriend Jennifer Davis, Director of BEADED HOPE

Beaded Hope - look good, do good, give hopeAs girlfriends, we often are each other’s best ‘cheerleaders.’ I think this happens because we love our friends unconditionally and we can see all their best traits. Fortunately, through our eyes their beauty, talents and special qualities all shine. And that’s a very good thing!

Today we taped a video with my girlfriend JENNIFER DAVIS. Jennifer is the director of BEADED HOPE, an organization that gives women in South Africa a job creating beaded art, then sells it here in the U.S. and returns profits to support an AIDS hospice in Mamelodi, South Africa. (I’ve had the honor of going to the hospice and it is both impressive and emotionally ovewhelming.) Beaded Hope items make great girlfriend gifts!


We taped at girlfriend Wendy’s art gallery and coffee shop – RED TREE (a very cool place in Oakley/Cincinnati, OH).

I’m glad you have a chance to meet Jennifer through this message and video. She’s making the world better one bead (and girlfriend) at a time. I am proud to be a Jennifer ‘cheerleader’! What girlfriend do you cheer for? Let her know that you’re proud of her and that the world is a better place because of her. She’ll no doubt feel the same way about you!
