Quick Check-In + Big Announcement!

Hello Everyone!! I hope this week is treating you swell! I wanted to check in and say hi to you all and to give you a quick update. Things were a bit busy for me for a while but it’s finally started to slow down so I wanted to let you know that new content will be coming out soon and share some exciting news!

While I’ve been away, I’ve also been busy networking here in the Metro Detroit area. I recently became a member of networking group for women who are starting or already own small businesses in the area called Boss Ladies Referral Crew.

We meet monthly for various events called Connects where we learn about each other’s businesses and we support one another on our ventures. Well, I’m happy to announce that I was selected to host a Connect in May. Ahh!!!

I will be hosting my FIRST OFFICIAL Friendships In the City Connect and I cannot wait to share all the fun details and tell you how it goes. I hope you’ll join me if in the area and if not nearby (shoutout to my family in Ohio, NYC, NC and TX!), just know I will be posting lots of photos from the event to share with you afterwards.

Okay! So the event will take place Thursday, May 23 at Tribe Detroit! Check my Events Page to get tickets!

I cannot wait to talk about Friendship with you all. Looking forward to meeting you and will be posting again on here soon.

Until next time!

Professional Networks & Building Your Community

Professional Networks & Building Your Community

Are you a part of any professional networking groups that excite you and energize you about your field of work or areas of interest?

I love networking and professional groups in particular because they are such a great resource for meeting those with similar interests, making new friends, learning more about your particular field and they can take place in a range of venues and spaces!

Getting Acquainted Part 3: Your Work

Getting Acquainted Part 3: Your Work

Hi Everyone! I wanted to close out the Getting Acquainted Series by talking about work! I know, I know, who really wants to talk about work, but your job is actually a great place to meet others and to make friends. Your job is a place where you will spend a lot of time (for better or worse), so why not take advantage of that fact and get to know your teammates or others within your organization?

What happened when I went to Brunch by myself

What happened when I went to Brunch by myself

Hi Everyone! So a few weekends ago I decided to put myself up for the challenge of walking into a shop or cafe that I’ve wanted to visit but hadn’t the chance to do it yet. After getting the recommendation from vegan blogger and friend Plant Based Detroit, I decided to check out a cafe in the Corktown area of Detroit called Folk. I’m so glad I did!
