I’m going to the BLOGCADEMY!!
I can’t describe how excited I am to be finally attending the Blogcademy – and I have finally found things that I want to blog about (my journey as a handbag designer, entrepreneurialism and empowerment) – meaning it’s never a chore and always fun. Just in time, phew. The gorgeous goddesses running the workshop are Gala, Shauna and Kat. All with their own very different, but VERY successful approaches to blogging. I signed up for this workshop almost a year ago, and have been looking forward to it so much. Since signing up I have closed down one business (Head Full of Feathers), almost started another, (a retail outlet for independent designers, Kotchi and Fox – which I decided not to persue due to wanting to concentrate my efforts on my true destiny…) and am now in the process of launching my very own british luxury designer handbag label, Jennifer Hamley (my destiny!). I have been on many courses in the past year and they have totally changed my life. I have a feeling that the Blogcademy is going to have a similar impact – I LOVE LEARNING! I’m excited to learn all about how to use my blog to enhance my brand and website, and also to meet so many entrepreneurial, creative, enthusiastic and like-minded women. I hope that the two days will give me some superpowers to make this blog a more enjoyable place for you to hang out too. It all starts on Tuesday, so expect lots of Instagraming from me – probably way too many selfies, and perhaps a video or two. I had a little panic on Friday that I didn’t have any business cards to take when I meet all these amazing people. I called so many printers to see if I could get some made. Unfortunately I was just too late, even for a speedy service. I decided not to panic (see ‘How To Be a Super Hero‘) got online, and using PicMonkey I managed to make these cute little social media contact photo’s to give out. They are by no means perfect, but it’s amazing what you can do when you take a deep breath and get on with things! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. As usual, my video is at the bottom of this post… Be awesome Jen x [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LihEVueRxk&w=420&h=315] Photos with thanks from the Blogcademy website
