 22 STATES - ADVENTURE, DATES & DISCOVERY

 HIGHWAY to a HUSBAND PAVES THE WAY FOR CAREER WOMAN
 to REDESIGN HER LIFE & FIND ROMANCE


Finding love and romance can be a full-time job! Two-Time Emmy Award Winning broadcast journalist turned travel-blogger Julia Yarbough is sharing her story of taking a leap of faith to redesign her life in hopes of finding Mr. Right through the hit blog/website “Highway to a Husband.”

“After 22 amazing years in the TV news business filled with awesome travels, excellent friends and unbelievable experiences, I knew the moment had come to set aside time for myself to explore life, love and see our beautiful country from the ground up. My choice of a cross-country road-trip with hopes of finding my Mr. Right may seem crazy, but I believe you have to first find yourself in order to find your soul-mate. This trip is opening my eyes to new possibilities every day! I believe broadening your mind and heart to new cities, people and possibilities increases your chances of finding that special someone.”

Julia’s travel partner and best friend Silva Harapetian, also an award-winning broadcast journalist was laid off from her reporting job in Detroit, Michigan. Instead of lamenting the downsizing, Silva decided she would use her broadcast/journalism talents in a creative new format. Now as the women  travel together 24/7 producing “Highway to a Husband” they are utilizing their media expertise but experiencing life to the fullest, altering their realities and taking chances every step of the way.

“We effectively removed all of our safety and comfort zones and stepped into the unknown,” says Silva. “We stepped away from our careers, our homes, our family and friends in order to allow ourselves to experience everything and anything that comes our way. “Highway to a Husband” is a fascinating journey because not only are we are redesigning our lives but what we are learning about life, dating and relationships we are now able to share with women and men!”

The topic of finding love seems to resonate with most everyone. Julia realized  population statistics were working against her and many women. According to recent census figures, 95.9 million Americans are single and 53% of those singles are women. In South Florida, the numbers are even more grim - women outnumber men by almost  3 to 1. With such sobering numbers, why not take to the country in hopes of finding Mr. Right?

Julia and Silva are traveling, by car, coast-to-coast and blogging every step of the way at HIGHWAYTOAHUSBAND.COM! The journalists are telling stories, snapping pictures recording video and taking in the sights and sounds of cities and National Parks across the United States. Julia and Silva have traveled through Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, California, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland exploring the unique nuances of the dating world and how men and women communicate and relate in each community.

“As we discover more about ourselves we are also finding there is a deep disconnect between what women say and what men hear and what men say and what women hear. I hope to cross paths with the man who will be my husband but by sharing our experiences, we are helping other singles connect,” says Julia.

“HighwaytoaHusband.com” attracts national and international attention. Julia and Silva have appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” with Kathie Lee & Hoda and as contributors to The Nate Berkus Show and most recently featured in the May, 2011 issue of Ebony Magazine. “Highway to a Husband” has been featured on NBC, ABC and CBS television affiliates and radio shows across the country including WTVJ, Miami, KNBC, Los Angeles, KDFW, Dallas, Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, Jacksonville and Pensacola, Florida, KCRA, Sacramento, California and Austin and Dallas, Texas. Highway to a Husband has been featured on-line with Essence.com as well as national radio programs including The Tom Joyner Morning Show and NPR’s Tell Me More. Canadian and Australian television and radio have also taken note, with “Highway to a Husband” fans following from more than 85 countries worldwide! Australia’s hit radio talk show The Naked Truth with Dr. Gabrielle, featured Highway to a Husband discussing matters of the heart and relationships between men and women.

“If my willingness to get off the treadmill of life in order to experience life motivates or inspires others to redesign their lives and go after what they want, then whether I do or don’t find my Mr. Right, my journey will be successful. They say life is a journey, so enjoy the ride. That’s exactly what Silva and I are doing by sharing “Highway to a Husband” with women and men the world over!

IS HOOLA-HOOPING A NEW DATING OR FITNESS TREND?

Highway to a Husband stumbles upon a Hoola Hoop Festival in San Francisco. Could it be that this niche activity is a doorway to a new fad, fitness trend or opportunity for dating? Days later, The Calgary Herald explores the same topic. Once again, Highway to a Husband is on the cutting edge for new ideas!

Who Doesn't Need a Straight Male Friend?

Have you ever needed cold hard advice from someone who is not a girlfriend? Someone who has an independent perspective and tells it like it is? When we get into situations when we need to bounce something off someone - anyone - what do we do? We call our girlfriends! Sure, that makes us feel better but it does not shed light on why things happen the way they do.



That's where our dear friend Marcus Osborn and his team at StraightMaleFriend.com come in. "It seemed that when it came to affairs of the heart, women would always reach out to their best girlfriends or their best gay friends. Maybe women should be talking to their straight male friends instead. Couldn't they give you more insight on how guys think than their girlfriends?" says Osborn. And thus, a new and helpful website forum was born!

Marcus and his team tell it like it is on their website
STRAIGHTMALEFRIEND.COM.



Highway to a Husband says "THANKS" to Marcus and the team at StraightMaleFriend.com for helping us gals navigate the sometimes murky waters of "men!"

Highway to a Husband teams up with
 
PEOPLE BEHAVING BADLY

What is it about human nature that makes some individuals say and do things which are just WRONG? Whether it's breaking laws, ignoring public decency or treating others with disrespect, there seems to be a meltdown of polite behavior in our society. My dear friend and PHOTOJOURNALIST Stanley Roberts has taken observations of BAD BEHAVIOR to a new level. Stanley is a star correspondent for KRON-TV in San Francisco, hosting the hit segment PEOPLE BEHAVING BADLY.



Stanley behaved with nothing but kindness, hosting Highway to a Husband during our first visit to the San Francisco Bay area, and even giving me some dating advice!


THANKS to Stanley and everyone at KRON for putting those with bad manners under the microscope. We can all learn what NOT to do by watching others!

Los Angeles Movie Screening
Highway to a Husband attends a private screening of
"You, Me & The Circus"
August 5, 2010
at the studios of
Anonymous Content, Culver City, LA
    


South Florida's own Marlon Ollivierre and Ty Hodges are taking their talents and careers to a new level with their latest creation.  As writers, actors and producers, these two friends and colleagues describe You, Me & The Circus as "a fantasy, drama, musical in the vein of some of the great writers/directors of screen and stage..."
Ollivierre and Hodges have teamed up with Producer Omar Epps (Love & Basketball, House) to create a story exploring the complex, comical, circus-like and sometimes tragic nature of relationships.

It is an honor for Highway to a Husband to support such an exciting and forward-thinking project. It is especially fulfilling for Julia, to see former WTVJ colleague Ollivierre go after his dreams and making them reality. It is that kind of vision, drive and self-determination which powers Highway to a Husband and the desire to create change to make our own destiny!

Congratulations to Omar, Marlon, Ty and the entire cast and crew of You, Me & The Circus!!!
