@Yahoo!Shine #WomenWhoShine Nomination @JoeyFortman

When I found out that Yahoo! Shine was looking for nominations for their "Women Who Shine" Award the first person I thought of was Joey Fortman (Real Mom Media). Joey is not only a true and dear friend of mine she also touches the lives of everyone she crosses paths with. Sometimes I swear she is a robot and not human, because she is always on the go and making great strides for women everywhere. She is a wife, mother, mother to be, radio host, blogger, brand ambassador, a pioneer for women everywhere among many more titles.

I had the honor to meet Joey a few years back and the moment I met her in person I realized how wonderful, amazing, spectacular, and beautiful of a woman she really was and that was in the first 5 min. Later that night and the nights to follow I came to find out that I had been missing out. Women everywhere know at least her name if not know her personally. The name that is Joey Fortman not only SHINES, it also is true to many causes and charities, and always tells it like it is.
After 15+ years in Traditional Media, Joey started Real Mom Media.  In the beginning most hadn't heard of it but over the years, Joey has turned it into a way of life. Now that she has moved to Philadephia, Joey can be heard on WBEN where is interviews business women & Bloggers. She is now host of Real Mom Radio on Ben FM highlighting moms in and around Philadelphia. Joey currently is a contributing parenting expert on Fox, NBC and other traditional media outlets. Joey has been featured nationally on Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper, Redbook, The Talk & The Today Show. Joey is very active in the community and charity events. Some of which include helping out Cradles To Crayons, and even helping out friends in need and even strangers. Joey is a strong believer of giving back to those that helped her along the way or to people she knows need help.
I am completely inspired by her and hope that one day I will be half the person she is! You can vote for Joey here it is only one click!
