Spin Sucks Inquisition 2014By Gini Dietrich

It’s the last Friday work day of the year and, if you’re like me, you’re running around finishing work projects and trying to get some last minute shopping done.

Because of that, we didn’t think it’d be fair to introduce you to someone completely new in the Spin Sucks Inquisition, for fear they might not get as much attention as they would on a normal Friday.

Therefore, I have created a list of everyone who has been featured since we began this series in March and Eleanor Pierce launched it off when she started working with us.

The Spin Sucks Inquisition 2014 List

Here are the 36 Inquisitees of 2014.

  3. November 21: Nikki Little, digital communicator and social media expert by day and mom to twin boys by night
  4. November 14: Jayme Soulati, the woman who can apply lipstick more often than anyone I know and is a freaking riot to be around
  5. November 7: Paula Kiger, also known as Big Green Pen because—you guessed it—her favorite color pen is green

If you have anyone you’d like to see featured in the Spin Sucks Inquisition in 2015, let me know! The only guideline is we’re sticking with communicators so recommend some up-and-comers and we’ll learn more about them for you.

With that, I wish you very happy holidays!

Dear Google: Some of this list has already run…right before Labor Day
