When I first came across the face of GuysGirl.com, Blythe Brumleve, I was impressed by her signature red lipstick and incredibly positive demeanor… even as a Jacksonville Jaguars fan. Immediately I felt connected to this entrepreneur taking the Southeast by storm and building an empire of female empowered sports talk. Blythe Brumleve is one of my favorite people to connect with simply because she is a self starter and incredibly motivated. You know that old saying that you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with? Blythe is someone that we look up to and would love to have in our crew. Besides being a bombshell that knows her sports, Blythe has a knack for being ahead of the curve on social media and branding as well. We are excited to share more about this Badass Babe with you below!
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An archaeologist! As a kid, my first crush was Harrison Ford because I loved Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Ever since then, I have a deep appreciation for history and exploring.
Who has inspired you most?
Besides my family, my grandma’s best friend, Reba. She was a pioneer in Kentucky in both the political and broadcasting worlds. She wears huge gemstone and diamond rings on each finger and when I complimented her on them, she told me they’re called ‘Reba Rings’ because “I bought them all for myself.” There was also this one time we had a bunch of family over and handful of us were in the kitchen having a deep conversation. Reba walks up, looks at all of us and says, “I’m just here to get my scotch”. She grabbed bottle and left. Still one of my favorite memories of her. And she’s still considered a working and living legend in Louisville, KY.
What are your goals for this year?
I just launched a live-stream podcast this past August (Periscope (@GuysGirl_) and on iTunes)
And now that we’ve reached the football off season, I’m looking forward to creating more helpful shows to the men and women in sports who want to carve their own path. So I’ll be launching a few different series on the “behind the brand” in the very near future.
Aside from work, I want to travel abroad—South America in particular. Besides Canada and the Bahamas, I’ve never been out of the country and I’ve had a passport for 7 years that’s never been stamped! That changes this year.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?
What’s a day off? jk.
I live so close to the beach that my ideal day is grabbing my beach bag, my hammock and a book and disappearing from technology for a few hours.
What qualifies someone as a “badass” and do you think of yourself as one?
