Here we are starting a new chapter of our 2024 book and I am so excited to write the Intro!
There's nothing like a fresh new page in a journal to get so many ideas flowing, nothing like a fresh new canvas to paint a masterpiece and nothing like a fresh new year to dream into!✨
Don't you feel that same thrill as you step into January?
With the first week under my belt, I can already see this year is going to be one for the books!
Best part is, you are part of it! And I REALLY mean that!💗
You see, I would love to know what you are dreaming about for your events and retreats this year. As your cheerleader, I want to make sure I am creating resources and tools that authentically support you in making your events happen. Tell me, friend, what would you like to learn about this month, this quarter or even this year?
Of course, I'm here to give you some helpful tips on hosting your next event, provide some great resources to further your journey and show you what else is going on in our community! So read on for all the pretty details!🌺
Let's give three cheers to our very own Invite & Delight program student, Christen Phillips with I See Stars Quilting! Christen hosted her first overnight event in September and to say it was a success is an understatement! Recalling the weekend, Christen said, "My first-ever retreat wrapped up yesterday, and I could just cry. It was everything I could have wanted it to be for my 29 girls and more...
"They loved every bit of it and walked away with 29 new BFF's...Thank you, Amber, for your advice, your encouragement, and the knowledge you share, as well as the confidence you gave me to go for this jump in my business. I feel awesome right now!"
Helpful Insider Expert Tip: Messaging for Your Retreats
Including language in marketing that speaks to your audience is key to connecting with them. Use a notes app to keep a running list of words and phrases you come across that are a good fit for your attendees. Then, reference that list for messaging when creating emails and social media posts for your events.
