Adventures at the Grand Opening of Unscripted Durham

My latest #explorer trek took me to the Grand Opening of #Durham #NC ‘s newest boutique hotel @UnscriptedDurham. Needless to say…we didn’t feel like we were in the #BullCity when we took over the rooftop deck with our mini #photoshoot. 

My friend Elliot is the Night Auditor for this place and he made sure I knew how magnificent it was in his description. However, it was even better than he described. I stayed the entire day from abou 10:30 am-3:30 pm and was able to meet the owners and chat about their vision for this little piece of heaven. 

They were the nicest and most hospitable people, making sure to greet and hold a conversation with everyone who entered. Believe me…there were a lot of people that crossed through the lobby that day. 

I can see myself escaping here regularly. #Travel doesn’t always have to be far, but you still need to plan to be successful. 

Using my #90DayFocus skills, I brought my laptop, charger, phone charger, debit card for street parking, which is a max of 2 hours for $3. I didn’t park in their lot, which is connected  to the building, but that’s only because it was full when I arrived. I enjoyed a Hazelnut Italian Soda even though it wasn’t on the menu, but my cool Lady Bartender with the shaved sides was awesome enough to make delicious treat for me.  

Their #WIFI was great and I nestled in the Cafe are for a Beautiful view of the street and everyone stopping by to take a glimpse at the new property.

They made sure local art, graffiti, color, and mod vibe were a part of this cool environment. 

 

The staff was wonderful, as were the little bites they gave out. They were clad in varied Unscripted tshirts with large font that made you want to read them.  

Jordan gave me a tour and informed me about the schedule of events, which is displayed in huge frames with colorful backdrops that give us a Mod 50-60’s nodtalgic feeling.

She slso sparked my next #adventure….Sunday #Brunch! The menus are super cute, sturdy, and double as fans for guests.

I will be back tomorrow to sample some of the fine food and beverage pairings on the only Outdoor Pool & Restaurant in the city! Get the Book and create the life you want Bit.ly/90DayFocusBook.

WSNC 90.5 FM to Feature Lady Bizness

In January of 2017, Chisa D. Pennix-Brown, MBA took over the reigns of Tech Thursdays for the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium.  Since the inception of the “Amplify Format”, which allows the event to be free and open to the public there has been a drastic rise in participation from non-members and a surge in current members who were not participating.

Tech Thursdays are a monthly series of workshops that address opportunities and challenges that nonprofits face with emerging technology. Each session is presented by a volunteer expert and the sessions allow attendees to gain new insights and best practices in areas like social media, understanding website analytics, and maximizing online donations.  Having the Amplify Format was the goal of collaboration instituted by Pennix-Brown, who is the CEO of Lady Bizness. “My business thrives on collaborations, and non-profit organizations are still businesses. People still need to market their businesses regardless of their tax status and providing access to technical skills that can be passed on to others improves the individual, the organization, and ultimately the community.”

Tune in on Friday, April 14, 2017 from 7:30-8 am to find out what is in store for the rest of the year, how you can get involved, and what you can do to grow your business and/or nonprofit organization. Ben Donnelly will air the show live on the Triad in Focus show on www.WSNCRadio.org.
