How to Keep Believing When You Have Terrible Results

You have to believe in yourself, even when nobody else does.

This quote is so true! I want to share an experience that I had less than 24 Hours ago that had terrible results. So, even though there was plenty of publicity, emails, announcements, and RSVPs, etc I had lack luster attendance for the first time this year at last night’s “Get The Bizness” event.

BlogPostPhotos

Inside I felt like damn…. I should have just stayed in my lane and done events for just business or just women. Trying to branch out to families who I know need the services that were provided by two excellent business owners was out of my normal wheelhouse. My vendors did not make a dime and one traveled all the way from #VA!!!! So….am I supposed to stop believing that this could have been the best event ever? Am I supposed to just stop market8ng to families? Hell to the no!!!! #WhitneyHouston

I just need to analyze what went wrong. Reevaluate the Marketing. And get rid of any negativity, because last night I sure was saying…”I will not do any more family friendly events!”

But I woke up with a renewed since of purpose and here is my #90DayFocus Action Plan:

1. Since I am a #BusinessWoman I immediatly gave each vendor a free booth at an already successful event for no charge.

2. I got great video from the owners Karen and Gina which can be used to promo the next event. It will be posted at on my YouTubeChannel!

3. I will still tell people about their services for Stay and Play Drop in Hourly Childcare located at 5314 W Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, NC.

4. Instead of being so broad and focusing on families, I will narrow that to #WomenInBusiness who have children.

5. I will alter the day and time. It was on a Thursday night from 6-8 pm And there are already a number of established events during that time. I chose the time because it fit my schedule, which may not have been the best for my target. One lovely lady attended butbhad to leave around 6 pm because her baby’s normal bedtime is 7 pm. #LessonLearned

6. I will send even more emails to my target. You do gave to inundate people to make them remember now a days. Just because I am a super scheduled person, my target of parents with small children could easily forget.

7. I will continue to be a believer in me, and that means that the show must go on! Don’t let one set-back sit you down, instead Get up off of thang and dance til you feel better!

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.
