At St. Louis Sprout & About we know how important it is to celebrate birthdays and other family milestones. This week marks our fourth year in business in St. Louis. In honor of our birthday, we thought we'd share some Sprout trivia. Did you know?
While a lot of time was spent conceptualizing, planning and creating STLSprout.com, we consider our first day in business to be Jan. 7, 2010, the first day Beckie Maislin, Sprout publisher and founder, and Jessica Pupillo, Sprout editorial director, emailed a beta version of the Weekly Planner to their personal friends and business contacts.
While we all love St. Louis, of the four core St. Louis Sprout & About "staff," three are St. Louis transplants. Beckie is from Arizona, Jessica grew up in Hawaii, and Social Media Manager Kathy Deters is from Jefferson City. Only our calendar manager, Liz Behan is born and raised in St. Louis.
