Everyone loves this time of the year. There’s nothing quite like the holiday hustle and bustle. But it’s also the most wonderful time of the year to start setting goals and figuring out your direction for the next year.
In the last meetup of 2016, the Greenville Bloggers were challenged by marketing professional (and co-founder of the group) Andrea Huerta to discover measurable, achievable goals for the upcoming year. But before we dove into the meat of the meetup (no pun intended!), the bloggers heard a short presentation from the local business Remix Design.
A stay-at-home mom in the Greenville area, Ashley of Remix takes a new spin on interior design and fashions her client’s homes using the items they already own. Ashley provides a way for people on a budget to get new interiors with their own style and flair.
Next, the meetup members gave brief introductions about themselves and their blogs and a little bit about why they started their blog. Andrea then launched into her helpful, goal-setting presentation starting with a great exercise on how to define your target audience.
With a worksheet and the encouragement of other bloggers around the table, it was a positive and helpful workshop on Honing Your Big Idea and how to make it possible. We also live-streamed the event on Facebook so members who were sick and couldn’t make the event could still benefit from the presentation.
Many thanks to Textile Hall in the Village of West Greenville for allowing us to use their space!
