How have events changed your business?
Holding my first event was a spectacular experience. I felt it was something that really legitimized my business in the face of those around myself, my readers and definitely in my own eyes.
It solidifies your message and why you are doing what you are doing in the eye of your community. Along with constantly reminding yourself why you are doing what you are doing - because trust me, when you are facing lots of gremlins in relation to can I do this, what do I have to offer, is this crazy, you are constantly reminded why you do what you do.
What do you love the most about holding events?
It was a reminder that I love connecting with people and cultivating community around me. It also really sparked something for me, the knowledge that this is a complete passion of mine, something I want to be doing a lot more of.
I love connecting with other women, and seeing them meet each other. It was honestly a highlight to see women meeting for the first time, chatting away and talking about how they could continue to connect past my event. To think that I created a space for that to occur is incredible.
I also love talking and getting to create a space where people can come together and talk about how they want to continue to further themselves and can grow and learn. These kind of conversations happening in real life are something that fuels me and leaves me high on life.
How do attendees feel when they leave your events?
They left feeling empowered and at peace with themselves.
I had an attendee say before she came to my workshop she was ready to go home and study more because she thought she had to do that. But afterwards she said she was going home to relax because she knew she deserved that. That really goes to show that the attendees walked away a little big kinder and gentler to themselves. Something we everyone can always be reminded of I think.
