It’s been a little over a week yet, I am still excited after conducting my first Blogging and Beauty Mixer which was held at the Reallook Med Spa in Bear, Delaware.
Most of you know that I have been providing free Blogging and Social Media Workshops at local libraries for the Money School of Delaware since 2013. As much as I enjoyed teaching the workshops for free the time had come that I could no longer afford to continue doing so.
I have literally trained over 500 participants and have spoken in front of more than 1500 small business owners since starting my blogging journey in 2012. I have enjoyed each and every workshop and presentation, however, beginning in September, I will be conducting them as a 3-part Blogging Series at Del Tech Community College in Stanton.
These workshops will become part of their course offerings and I will be paid for doing what I love to do; the Delaware Blogger is finally turning her passion into a profit in a major way!
As an introduction to my consulting services, the Blogging and Beauty Mixer was held at the Reallook Med Spa, in collaboration with the owners, Arun and Simmi Bixit. The mini seminar’s title “Blogging is Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul” was apropos considering it was hosted at a Day Spa.
Registration for the Mixer was created in Eventbrite, promoted on Facebook and many thanks to my friends and followers because the tickets sold out in less than 2 weeks! Not only did it sell out, but I had several business owners agree to donate products for the Goodie Giveaway Bags which included, The New Castle County Chamber of Commerce, AARP Delaware, Summit Liquors, The Cleaning Girl, Inc., The Women’s Business Center, Anara Originals, Splash Designworks and content creator of got2bgina blog who had the personalized Soy Candles made.
The best part of the Blogging and Beauty Mixer was having everyone introduce themselves as well as tell a little something about their life’s journey. With each story or testimony, it becomes more apparent that we had all met for a purpose.
The testimonies and shout outs were inspiring and it was also a great way to network with like-minded individuals. The love and support from everyone in attendance was truly heartwarming.
Needless to say, this is something that I have prayed for and by adding a Blog Consulting service to A.Blake Enterprises I hope that it will get me closer to my dream of retiring from Corporate America before the year 2020.
I would like to thank everyone that attended the first Blogging and Beauty Mixer and look forward to the next one.
Let’s chat: are you interested in starting a blog or perhaps making changes to your current one?
