One Remarkable Woman

tempOn Friday, February 12th I’ll have the honor of interviewing the Queen of Pain, obstacle course and ultra athlete, Amelia Boone. She’ll be added to the growing list of spectacular women I’ve profiled for in the Inspiring Women series.

Amelia is a three-time winner of World’s Toughest Mudder and the 2013 Spartan Race Champion. She’s also a corporate attorney. Amelia, a regular on the winner’s podium throughout her career, is sponsored by BeetElite and Reebok.


Win It

Amelia loves competition, so let’s have one of our own. Ask a question of Amelia Boone for the Women in Business profile using the hashtag #AskAmeliaWIB. If we choose your question, I’ll send you signed copies of  two books by business/investing dynamo ‘Downtown’ Josh Brown, the man the NY Times called, “The Merchant of Snark”. So yeah, we’re mixing business with pleasure; seems appropriate given how much Amelia enjoys her sport.

Your prize X2:

temp“Backstage Wall Street” Wall Street is very good at one thing: convincing you to act against your own interests. And there’s no one out there better equipped with the knowledge and moxie to explain how it all works than Josh Brown. Barron’s called Josh “pot-stirring and provocative.” Josh Brown worked for 10 years in the industry.


temp“Clash of the Financial Pundits” This no-bull, bottom-line guide from “The Reformed Broker” Josh Brown and Yahoo Finance’s Jeff Macke will help you cut through the cacophony and make the most of today’s media news.



An Accidental Icon

Amelia Boone has turned obstacle-course racing from tribal gathering to prime time sporting event. She’s been called the Michael Jordan of her sport, a tough moniker to represent, but she’ll figure it out.

I’ll mention your Twitter handle in the profile piece and announce the winners on Twitter – Friday, February 12, 2016 at 1700 EST, so stay connected to me @hefferonjoe and Amelia @AmeliaBoone

Remember to use the hashtag #AskAmeliaWIB so I don’t miss your question
