Firefly Forts and Fighting Cancer: The Inspiring Story of a Family Business


Feb 13, 2024
From pandemic brainstorm to thriving business: The evolution of an idea

In Nashville, Tennessee, a couple from Atlanta has turned an idea into a business that aims to get kids outside and away from screens. Firefly Forts, as it’s called, was created out of a desire to reduce screen time for their own kids and get them outside more. The company has not only created memories for families, but also meaningful connections with their customers. One of their customers turned out to be Mike’s Neurosurgeon, showing the impact and reach of their business.

Keith Maddin, the owner of Firefly Forts Nashville, is excited about the expansion and sees it as exactly what he wants to be doing next. Despite their success, the Scagliones are now facing a difficult time as Mike has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. However, they are fortunate to have found someone to run the business in Nashville, allowing them to focus on his health and their family.

The school voucher debate takes center stage as one mom from Arizona sought to understand the issue and its potential impact. With two boys in elementary school, Carrie Sharp wanted to be well-informed about the issue. She researched Arizona for insight into the potential outcomes of such a program and believes it will do the same for others. As a journalist covering this topic, I believe it is important for parents like Carrie to understand both sides of the debate so they can make informed decisions for their children’s education.
