Vision Board Party

The Vine Events - Vision Board Party 2019

The Vine Events – Vision Board Party 2019

It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a PAR-TA…

One of my annual self-care practices is creating a vision board. A vision board is basically a visual representation of your intentions. I put mine up in my home office. It’s a reminder of what I want to accomplish and helps me refocus when I get off track.

On Sunday, February 3rd I will hosting a Vision Board Party! This will be a fun filled event that I’ll be facilitating. What makes my workshops unique is that you leave with a plan of action to accomplish your goal(s). After the workshop, there’s nothing to it, but to do it.  Also, I provide all the supplies to create your vision board and snacks to get your creativity flowing. All you have to bring to the party is yourself! RSVP by purchasing your ticket before Wednesday, January 30th. Invest in yourself and your vision, because YOU ARE WORTH IT!

New Promo Video On Deck!

img_1516The Vine Events entrepreneur support group Digital Marketing On A Budget (DMOB) has completed our first marketing challenge! During June, I challenged our group members to create a promotional video for their brand/business by the end of the month. At the beginning of each week, members were given a task to complete by the end of the week. Daily post relating to the week’s task was shared to assist members in getting the ball rolling. Below is a snippet of our weekly tasks.

Week 1: Challenge participants had to decide what they wanted to promote; whether it was a product, event, contest, or service. Everyone was encouraged to keep their script simple and concise.

Week 2: Challengers had to choose a video platform. Daily post about smartphone apps, laptop software, and live streaming assisted with their decision.

Week 3: Things got real; participating members task was to create their promo video. They were encouraged to let their personality shine through!

Week 4: Participants had a chance to tie up loose ends! Through out the challenge, group members were encouraged to work at their own pace and to keep things simple.

I truly enjoyed sharing this creative experience with DMOB group members. I chose to make a promo video for Accented Glory’s NEW Styling Guide! As I stated in previous posts, myself and other group members are not too tech savvy, so user friendly platforms are a must.  With that being said, I chose PowToon as my platform; it was easy to use and easy on my budget. Check out my promo video below!

NYC Trip For Urbanworld 2016

In July I got an email from ArrayNow informing me that I was receiving a pass to Urbanworld Film Festival 2016! The pass was a thank you for valuing and supporting their work. Array was originally AFFRM (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement), which was founded by one of my SHEroes Ava DuVernay. I became an ArrayRebel a few years ago because foremost I LOVE black film. Secondly, I understand the importance of supporting indie films by people of color and women filmmakers.

I was already off from work during the time of film festival, because I had originally planned to travel to Washington DC for the inaugural of the National Museum of African American History and Culture with my hubby. I’m a black history nerd too! My husband convinced me to bypass the trip to DC and head to NYC for the film festival. He also made it very clear that he still planned to attend museum opening without me!

Urbanworld Film Festival was amazing! I was in film heaven. I got an opportunity to see some great independent films and engage in post-screening dialogues. I also meet some amazing people from fellow film enthusiasts to filmmakers! It was like a big family reunion centered around the love of film. Thanks ArrayNow, I will forever cherish the experience!
