I am so excited to be a speaker at the 2017 VenturePOP! Conference in New Orleans. In its third year, I have heard nothing but amazing things about this event, and am beyond thrilled to be included alongside an incredible roster of speakers. Won't you join me in NOLA? Conference dates: September 30 - October 1. 

I met Jessica of Ideology Photography at a Whiskey & Pearls networking event in February, and I was so humbled when she asked to feature me on her interview series. She kept me laughing the entire time during our shoot at Hotel San Jose - hiding behind cacti and amongst the trees to get the perfect shot!

It's no secret - I LOVE Juice Society. It's become my home office away from home. There is gorgeous natural light, great Wifi, easy access to plugs, and not to mention the BEST juices, smoothies, and healthy snacks. It's the total package! At the end of the year, Danielle asked me to share my thoughts on how to make 2017 the best year yet!

In another addition to the Small Business School series on The Paper + Craft Pantry blog, I'm talking all about what you really need to focus on when it comes to developing your marketing plan. It's not all stats & follower counts; you have to find ways to really connect with those people who are your most avid supporters.

Clif, the owner of The Early Hours Clothing, attended the December Own Your Why intensive, and I am so lucky to now call him a friend. He is insanely talented with a brand that has an enviable loyal audience. Clif is an inspiration to me to keep working hard for what you believe in and putting the people and the quality of your product first.

Misty co-hosts we are the REVELERS with her husband Randy, and she is also the fearless leader of a mastermind group of which I don't know how I got so lucky to be included. She speaks truth, exudes calm, and has helped me in innumerable ways. It was truly an honor to chat with both of them about living a life with purpose.

I was fortunate enough to meet Ashland Viscosi in the fall of 2016. Since then, I've participated in her exquisite small group coaching program CreativeTribes. This episode is an excerpt from the Creatives Meet Business Digital Marketing event that I was so honored to be one of six speakers. It's a 12-min quick listen all about email marketing! 

In honor of Valentine's Day, I contributed to the Small Business School series on The Paper + Craft Pantry blog to talk about how to exceed client expectations. Did you know that it's more expensive to gain a new customer than it is to maintain a current one? Read my tips on what you can do to keep your clients coming back for more.
