Thrive Blog Mixer
I've been hanging out a lot with my new biz bestie Bree Pair, who helped found the Thrive Blog Conference, and she is one of the hardest working and most driven individuals I've ever met. She recently put on a mixer for the Thrive Blog Conference Alumni so I thought it would be fun to share a bit about it here and tell you guys what we have planned for the next few months too!
The mixer was held in a gorgeous model home in Houston and it was absolutely the perfect space for entertaining! The four story home was full of light and windows, beautiful flooring and lots of storage space.
We had amazing snacks and drinks - the chicken salad was some of the most delicious stuff I've ever put in my mouth. And cheese plates are one of my (many) love languages so of course between filling up my glass with the signature beverage, a fizzy blueberry spritzer, I was nibbling on creamy brie cheese and crackers!
Bree organized the cutest little swag bags to gift us with! They had this beautiful print from Hey Bernadette in them, along with gorgeous jewels from Luxa Jewelry. How beautiful are these earrings? I love tiny little earrings and these druzy studs are perfect to wear every day - comfy and sparkly!
We spent the evening chatting about the conference and everyone had such great ideas to share on what they loved, what they thought could be done better, and helped us come up with some really great ideas for next year's conference! There was also a lot of laughing of course - you really can't get a group of bloggers together without it!
I'm also pretty stoked to announce that I am officially part of the Thrive Team, which means that I get to sit next to Bree in coffee spots all over the Houston area and affirm that she is, indeed, rocking it! But really though, I've always been intrigued by all the behind-the-scenes planning that goes in to putting on a conference and, while it terrifies me to no end, I've secretly always wanted to do one. So its been a ton of fun and a great learning experience to get to see it from the other side!
We have been working really hard putting together some amazing content for a Strategic Planning Workshop coming up on August 20th! If you're working really hard on your business, but don't have an end goal in sight, and you're in the Houston area, then I'm going to highly recommend you join us for this workshop! You'll leave with a roadmap to get you from where you are today to where your big dreams are taking you within the next few years. It is going to be awesome! Plus we have a sweet little Happy Hour planned afterwards!
Bree and I did a live Q&A on Facebook yesterday (which you can view here) where we talked a lot about the workshop, the conference, and the benefits of attending. You can register for the workshop here! You may want to go ahead and snag a ticket today - they go up to $100 each after tomorrow!
