This past weekend we had a social media workshop and I think it was a success! I guess we never know if it’s really good or not when Priscilla and I are the ones hosting it lol. The girls that attended said that it was, so we’ll just run with that. Putting together any type of event takes a lot of work. It’s so time consuming! We were originally going to have our friend Victoria host it, but she had some family things to take care of and we decided to still have it and host ourselves. Since it was a very basic intro to some apps, it was no biggie!
Not only did we have to put the content together last minute, we also had to focus on promoting it. Priscilla and I have full time jobs and families so we tag team a lot of the work that needs to be done. I recently watched a video on Instagram from Carlos Reyes talking about is partner. He said he wouldn’t be where he is without him. He talked about the amount of hours he can put in alone and the amount of hours that are put in between the two of them. The chances of success are doubled! It works the same way for us. We create on random down time and in between time of family duties. We just make it work!
I had to close at work the night before and worked from 10am-7:30pm. I got home, still had to put some stuff together and organize the workshop flow. I got up at 6am, got ready, packed my car, went to the grocery store to get the shit for mimosas and was at the studio by 9am. I slammed a redbull and was ready to go! The best part about what we do is getting to know the women attending and what they are working on. Some were bloggers, youtubers, estheticians, authors, podcasters and other creative entrepreneurs with amazing ideas! We’re all in the same boat trying to figure it out together and sometimes drowning together. It was a good mix of showing women how to create clean content and also teach them what will drive more traffic to their page. We’ll have to see what they come up with on their own and promote them on here as well! What apps do you love to use to create content for your page? Help a mami out!
