Driving Ambition: A Love Story

Re: Clout Et Cetera Blog Post

Hi Jude....... loved loved loved your story about cars, driving and the "feeling" one gets on the open road. I too adore road trips. A day, a weekend, a month. No matter. Just get me behind the wheel. Even now with GPS built into my iPhone, I still have a love affair with paper maps ! I have a lousy sense of direction, so taking that road less travelled just enhances the experience of discovery for me. There is always a picnic basket loaded with goodies on the back seat too. And never ever without a bag of good old fashioned Hawkins Cheezies. Thanks for writing this blog Jude - it brought back some good "feelings" reading it !

"If you're looking for a change in your life you will definitely be provoked to give it a jump start after a coaching session with Clout Et Cetera's founder & leader, Jude Gorgopa. Jude is dynamic and full of energy! She is also a sensitive and caring human being. Her trend classes lead you throughout the city of New York, looking at fashion, lifestyles, and social scenes in a whole new way. You'll never look at the city or yourself in the same way again!"

" As a former designer turned teacher, I was hopeful that Jude would help me update my trend spotting skills...which she did and more!....her professional knowledge and expertise gives her the savvy to speak intelligently about what's cool in New York, from mass-market to newly emerging creative talent."
