<p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><b><span>Follow us on Twitter at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://twitter.com/The4way">twitter.com/The4way</a>.</span></b><br /> <b><br /> JODY FISCHER</b> I live in the Bay Area and study the somatic bodywork, Feldenkrais. I am a writer and a teacher. I can teach any subject matter, as long as there are no numbers involved. My first job as a waitress lasted one whole day. The most unusual job I ever had was in college when I was paid to listen to a country radio station for 24 hours in a row and write down the title to each song. Someday soon, I hope to learn to dance. <br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><b>CHRIS KENNEDY</b> went on his first date&mdash;to a roller rink&mdash;in the fourth grade. This proved prophetic as his relationships since then reflected his time in the rink that day&mdash;starting off nice and easy, but eventually speeding out of control and ultimately leaving him flat on his back with his wheels spinning. Chris abides by the philosophy that life&mdash;and dating&mdash;is in the roller rink. The trick is to enjoy the ride. When you fall, get back on your feet and keep on rollin&rsquo;. If you need help, just ask him. Chances are, he will be lying right next to you. <br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><b>DARREN MADDOX</b> is a native of a tiny town in Kentucky. Having held a wide variety of jobs ranging from Piggly Wiggly mascot to Pawn Broker to HR Specialist, he has many life experiences to draw from in his writings. Now living in San Francisco, California, he pays the bills by working as a client marketing manager for an Internet startup company. Darren has published several newsletters and articles for the small business administration. He is currently working on publishing his first book. <br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><b>REBECCA BROWN</b> is a writer, a commercial and movie-quoting junkie, a spelling bee champion, a pop culture addict, a salsa and burrito connoisseur, and inventor of the question mark. After thirteen years of defining target audiences and observing focus groups, she left to become an advertising copywriter. Feeling confined by taglines and large logos (&quot;Make it BIGGER!&quot;), Rebecca left for the brighter skies of DivineCaroline. She enjoys traveling, reading, college basketball and football, hiking, biking, tall men, dogs, cardio tai boxing, and the occasional downward dog. Rebecca is currently dating George Clooney, Cillian Murphy, and Clive Owen. She lives, works, and plays in the greatest city in the world (San Francisco).</p>
