My friend FrannyO is a trailblazer. Back in 2009, she and China Gorman organized the first-ever official “tweet-up” at an HR conference in New Orleans. It was a networking party with bloggers. You can see some photos here. We were all so young. Dammit.

My god, how easy, but the concept was new to the HR community. Franny made it happen — like she makes everything happen — through the winning combination of event-planning skills and her awesome personality.

On that same trip, someone swiped my watch on Bourbon Street, and Franny lost her wallet. That’s when I learned that the best way to carry money is in your bra.

Franny is my first guest on the #HRBookClub on my Facebook page at 2 PM ET today. She’s a Bren√© Brown fan, a fantastic human being, and a Vice President of HR who has a million things to do but still makes time to read.

Franny may be my only guest depending on how this thing turns out, but I can’t think of anybody better to kick off this journey.

See you on Facebook Live later today!
