The “Best Gurl” Story
Once upon a time, there was a Southern boy who never stopped dreaming, smiling, and telling stories. As a man, the boy continued dreaming, smiling and telling stories. He would awaken early every morning in anticipation of what the day held. He liked the variety of doing different things. He was an actor, a writer, a consultant, a speaker, all things he loved doing and he did them with a relish, a desire to do more. He was happy, joyful and having fun. Oh! And, he loved his wife!
Once upon a time, a young Midwestern girl lived the life of a princess. She rode horses, learned to boat, studied ballet, traveled, challenged boys, and wrote a letter to the US Secretary of Education. Being a princess was fun, but she wasn’t going to be boxed into someone else’s image of what a “girl” should be. She was too busy discovering, “What’s Next?!” She followed many roads and along the way she discovered being a business owner, an elected official, a wife and mother, a philanthropist, a speaker, and an educator.
One day, the dreamer and the princess met.
He nicknamed her “The Best Gurl” He told her, “I’m from Alabama. We pronounce it like it’s spelled with a ‘U’.” She liked the name. It stuck.
In 2004, they formed Best Gurl Entertainment. Later shortened to Best Gurl, inc.
We think it’s intriguing, interesting, and unusual. It begs the question, “What is Best Gurl?” We love to provide the answer.
