You’re Invited: This fall, I’m hitting the road for 2 1/2 months—my husband, three kids and I will be hauling our travel trailer across the country. We’ve done this before, and it’s a little crazy, but incredibly fun and effective. For this trip, I’m literally taking my show on the road—blogging and vlogging as I get on nearly 100 campuses and watch a lot of college volleyball. I plan to catch my former clients who are currently playing in college and tour campuses. You could think of it as a Travel Channel for recruiting, bringing volleyball and colleges to life like never before.
