What’s pulling rank in the business world?

(Fer)mentally prepare for this grand opening 😉

Enter the ring, Hope 💫

2020 is a fierce opponent, but Hope is stronger and it happens when you support vital nonprofits in Birmingham. The YWCA of Central Alabama, the Crisis Center and the A.G. Boys and Girls club are three United Way of Central Alabama (UWCA) partners that many of our city’s residents couldn’t live without. Find out who you are giving hope to when you donate to UWCA’s #HopeHappens campaign.

Now airing Tuesday nights: Loft Life 📺

If TV has taught us anything, it’s that when you move into a loft your days are suddenly filled with silly mishaps, five new best friends and amazing, almost impractical, life opportunities. Loft life in Birmingham can’t promise “New Girl” hilarity, but it can deliver gorgeous spaces to live out your own sitcom scenarios. 


We’re banking on a brighter future 💰

If you know the names BB&T and SunTrust, you know Truist. The bank has a new name and its nickels and dimes aren’t the only things shining at the company. We chatted with Mary Beth Young, a key player in Truist’s philanthropic work to learn how their initiatives are strengthening different aspects of Alabama’s neighborhoods.
