Spotlight: BG Magazine Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary
If you’ve ever been in the company of Tameiko Yancey, then you know that she is quite the firecracker. Beautiful with a fun, outgoing personality, Tameiko is extremely ambitious and business savvy, so it makes perfect sense that she decided to publish a magazine that's reflective of her character: BG Magazine. Celebrating their one year anniversary, BG Magazine is for the “Bad Girl” in all women. Chock full of tips on health & beauty, fashion, and relationships, BG Magazine also highlights local success stories of our fellow Memphians.
Run entirely by a team of minority women (can you say ultimate Girl Power?), BG Magazine is building quite the buzz, with no signs of stopping. Their mission is to empower all women everywhere, and by not limiting themselves to a specific market or sector, they are quickly expanding their readership, while helping other "Bad Girls" do the same with their own networks.
It makes me happy (and quite proud) to see strong, confident women taking on media, offering a quality product and proving the naysayers wrong. I salute Ms. Yancey for providing people with a magazine that is not only fun to read, but also electing to build a team like the one she has. It's an inspiration for any woman that's pursuing her goals. With hard work, dedication, and a good team, anything is possible!
Pick up a copy whenever you’re out around town, and you can also visit them online at http://www.bgmemphis.com/ to view a virtual issue of the Anniversary Issue.
