I created Digital Marketing On A Budget Facebook group last year in May. I designed the group for my friends who are also fellow entrepreneurs to share resources I’ve stumbled upon during my brand building journey!
The group initially started out as a private group, but I recently opened it up so others can join! I’m a giver by nature and want everyone to succeed in their endeavors. I’m still using the space to share what I have learned and continue to learn as the visionary of an organization and brand.
Many of the group members and myself are forty plus in age and face some challenges when it comes to technology! Fortunately, there are user friendly marketing resources that assist us as we travel the digital journey together. More importantly, most of the resources are either free or low cost and don’t put a big dent in our budgets!
I’m currently trying to build the group. My plan is to start hosting group challenges to engage our group members. I’m looking forward to learning and growing our brands together!

P8perglass Jewelry/Beads and The Vine Event Planning is co-hosting a “New Account Drive” during the entire month of September at First Legacy Community Credit Union in Salisbury, NC. We’re encouraging the local Salisbury/Rowan County African American community to “bank black”. This is a movement taking place across the United States signifying a shift towards economic empowerment at a local community level. Our hopes is that this is the beginning of greater things to come towards building a stronger community.

Below is a Facebook post shared by one of our Peace Circle community partners Pastor Anthony Smith of Mission House. We felt like our readers would enjoy it!
In a world full of injustice we rightfully long for change now. Not just any kind of change but big change. When I consider this need for big change I think about natural occurrences that represent big changes to the landscape of our world. Like tsunamis and earthquakes. Natural events like these alter our world in profound ways.
Before there are tsunamis and earthquakes there are the unseen subtle shifts in tectonic plates under the ocean. Seemingly insignificant and unnoticed.
So it is with the community transformation that we long for. We long for the big changes that will turn things around. And we often undervalue the small seemingly insignificant tectonic shifts and movement needed to create the big change.
This is how I see #PeaceCircle. Peace Circle is tectonic movement. It is the calling forth of meaningful, challenging, and hospitable dialogue that helps create the Big Change we want to see in the world. No tectonic shift no tsunamis nor earthquakes.
Tsunamis and earthquakes don’t just happen!
This is a hard sell in a world of instant gratification. But what must be remembered is that patient conversation after conversation seeds of deep transformation are being sown in our community.
I really want you to consider being a part of this tectonic movement called Peace Circle convened by our lead organizer Tonya Cross of The Vine Events.
It’s easy to make light of and undervalue conversation among fellow community members. But history teaches us that major social change was started by such conversations.
