Making sports your secret weapon

Amy shares how being up-to-date on sports knowledge can be a valuable tool for connecting at the office, at networking events, or even on a date.

Amy is the quarterback and co-founder of Last Night’s Game, a site for the sports curious; a safe haven to empower those who want to learn about the world of sports but don’t know where to start. While her athletic participation was short lived, Amy fell in love with the world of sports. That learned love for sports came in handy when she embarked on her career path which began in professional sports. She’s lived internationally and continues to travel anywhere and everywhere, which provides her with a global sports perspective. A master of small talk, bringing people together and the handwritten note (the art is not dead), you can often find this married lady not sweating the small stuff while embracing her inner domestic goddess or talking sports with her brother and co-founder.
