From O Magazine:
After a decade of bonding over deadlines, Lee Clifford and Julie Schlosser linked up to create a charming new form of philanthropy. As editors at Fortune magazine, they covered everything from the rise and fall of corporate titans to whether office parties are a faux pas during an economic slump. While brainstorming topics for the column they coedited by "shouting across the hall," Clifford says, they became friends. Less publicly, the colleagues talked about taking a cue from the inspiring entrepreneurs they profiled.
