Gearing Up for the Debut

After working and nurturing my idea for almost 2 years I was a nervous wreck when I launched the marketing campaign and went live with the first event. I can not tell you how many times I checked the social media pages to see if we had followers, if anyone RSVP'd to the event online. I have never been that nervous in my life.

Then it happened.

Slowly people began to respond. They began to ask questions. Other people started to post on their pages they would be attending the kick off event. That made me kick up my marketing efforts a few notches. Every bit of what I learned in PR and Communications over the past 10 years began to go into overdrive. I started to put personal touches on the evites. I began to reach out to the maybe respondents and get them to say yes.

I began to really believe in my product.

These past few weeks have been nerve wrecking, fulfilling and joyous. I have planned many events in the past and none of them compare to the emotion I have wrapped up in this one. I have worked into the wee hours of the night, sent emails and phone calls to make this event a success.

And you know what? I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Since this line of events is a Salsa dance night, I thought it only appropriate to attach one of my favorite salsa tunes. Enjoy this mellow groove. This band is one of my favorites, no worries...I will feature them soon:

(I must send a very sincere thank you to Charles at the Illuminate Darkness Experiment for the wonderful Logo, he is truly talented. Stop by his spot and check him out)

Until Next Time,

Enjoy each and every day God gives you...

Peace & Blessings...
